From dKosopedia

The tag:namespace is for articles with the point of view of a tag editor in the blogosphere as a whole. Things that aren't necessarily tied to DailyKos or dKosopedia in particular, but are shared between both and all blogs in the world.

Names like Tags-Political Bloggers and Sites violate pretty much every convention there is. Don't create them. Current pages in this namespace include:

This namespace may be temporary as it's been suggested that there should be no Daily Kos tag that is not also a dKosopedia article. All alternative versions of the same tag would then become redirects in main namespace, and there'd be no need for a separate tag namespace of any kind.

However, o use the dKosopedia as the means by which incorrect, for some definition of incorrect, tags get mapped to correct tags, or identified as problematic in some way, requires a canonical scheme of identifying tag categories, and consistency in using that scheme.

Bill Cinton
Hillary Clinton
George W. Bush
Afganistan => Afghanistan
William J. Clinton => Bill Clinton
William Jefferson Clinton => Bill Clinton
Clinton => Bill Clinton, Hillary Clinton, Chelsea Clinton, Clinton Administration, etc.
George Bush => George W. Bush, George H.W. Bush

As a first pass, how about using asterisk bullet points:
