Getting to 270  —  Can John McCain win in November?  —  The conventional wisdom is that Republicans start at a serious disadvantage in trying to hold the White House.  A still-unpopular war and a softening economy certainly represent challenges.  So far, most of the enthusiasm in the primaries …
Matthew Yglesias:
Obama and the Details  —  One anti-Obama meme that I notice has gotten a lot of support even among people sympathetic to his cause is the notion that he's somehow shallow or insufficiently well-versed in policy matters.  Obviously, I can't crawl into either candidate's brain and take a look around …
