This is a historic day for TheStreet.com.

We are introducing our

first blog, on politics

, on the flagship site. John Fout, our political correspondent, will begin with daily posts on the national political campaigns. John will cover everything political, including the candidates' personalities, their strategies, fund-raising and policies.

What's especially exciting about this is that you may post comments in the blog. We welcome you to participate in the political discussion as it continues to intensify over the next 18 months.

This is our free site's first blog, but it will not be the last. Within the next few weeks, Cliff Mason's column -- "Money in Your Face," the

first edition of which is on the free site today

-- will also be introduced in a blog format.

Read the politics blog now

, and as always, let us know what you think.

Let's stay interactive.
