Obama office adores psychotic Marxist thug  —  Che Guevara, the chief executioner of Fidel Castro's brutal revolution, was a bank robber, a cold-blooded murderer, an enthusiastic torturer and generally an evil, sociopathic bastard.  He's quite literally the poster boy for everything wrong with socialism.

Clinton dismisses weekend losses  —  WHITE MARSH, Maryland (CNN) — Hillary Clinton on Monday explained away Barack Obama's clean sweep of the weekend's caucuses and primaries as a product of a caucus system that favors “activists” and, in the case of the Louisiana primary, an energized African-American community.

Did Esser call the primary for McCain... or McKenna?  —  Since prematurely calling Washington's caucus for John McCain, thus changing the narrative of Saturday's results, WSRP Chair Luke Esser is making a name for himself nationwide... or rather, the nation is making up new names for him.

Did Bill Sink Hill on Purpose?  —  Before I explain, let me say that I'm not a (Bill) Clinton hater.  I actually like the guy.  I've grown nostalgic for the Clinton years.  The economy was booming.  He was the most free trade president we've had in a long, long time (certainly more free trade than this one).
Ari Emanuel / The Huffington Post:
My Brother the Superdelegate and Why I Don't Trust Him to Pick the Next President  —  My brother Rahm Emanuel is a superdelegate.  I love my brother, and I trust my brother.  But I gave up letting my brother dictate my life since he determined whether he got the top or bottom bunk in our bedroom back in Chicago.

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 …
Clive Crook / Financial Times:
Why Democrats must choose Obama  —  The manager or the visionary.  Hillary Clinton's own supporters - the candidate herself, in speech after speech - have cast the fight this way.  Stirred emotions and soaring rhetoric are all very well, goes the line.  If that is what you want, vote for Barack Obama.
