Andrew Sullivan / The Atlantic Online:
Is America Now South Asia?  —  No developed country in the world actually bestows political office on women because they were once the wives of presidents.  It has tended to happen in South Asia - Sri Lanka, India, the Philippines - but certainly not in modern, developed, Western societies.
Discussion: Unqualified Offerings
Geoffrey Wheatcroft / Washington Post:
Who Made Hillary Queen?  —  Among so much about American politics that can impress or depress a friendly transatlantic observer, there's nothing more astonishing than this: Why on Earth should Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton be the front-runner for the presidency?
Hillary Rodham Clinton / The Trail:
Clinton's Iran Vote Prompts A Harsh Back-and-Forth  —  Randall Rolph said he came to New Hampton, Iowa, on Sunday to see Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton (D-N.Y.) with an open mind about whether to support her candidacy.  After a tough exchange over Iran, he left saying he had ruled her out.

3,000 square foot home, but cannot 'afford' health insurance?  —  Remember the Frost family of Baltimore?  They had a bad traffic accident 3 years ago.  Their medical bills were paid by the taxpayer-subsidized SCHIP.  Democrats trotted out Graeme Frost, 12, to call the president mean …
Mark Steyn / The Corner:
Brother, can you spare a CHIP?  —  This would seem to be a fairly typical media trajectory.  The Democrats sign up a sick kid to read their Saturday morning radio address.  As Paul Krugman has observed, Bill Kristol, Rush Limbaugh and the rest of us heartless bastards on the right were no doubt too busy laughing to pay attention.
Noel Sheppard / NewsBusters.org:
'Journalists' Tell Howard Kurtz Why Good News from Iraq Shouldn't Get Reported (updated w/video)  —  As CNN's Howard Kurtz accurately pointed out on Sunday's "Reliable Sources," few media outlets seemed at all interested in giving much attention to the great news out of Iraq last week regarding September's sharp decline in casualties.
Nathaniel R. Helms / warchronicle.com:
Al Qaeda in Haditha: The battle the media ignored  —  Buried in the mountain of exhibits attached to the once secret Haditha, Iraq murder inquiry prepared by US Army Maj. Gen. Eldon A. Bargewell is an obscure Marine Corps intelligence summary (see pdf) that says the deadly encounter …

Beauchamp Update  —  If you've been following the Scott Thomas Beauchamp Affair, I strongly recommend reading the latest update from The New Republic.  The short version is that the Army's investigation of the case appears to be confined to a) releasing no information about their investigation …

Washington Post:
More Torture Memos  —  PRESIDENT BUSH said Friday, as he has many times before, that "this government does not torture people."  But presidential declarations can't change the facts.  The record shows that Mr. Bush and a compliant Justice Department have repeatedly authorized the CIA …

IT'S SHOWTIME, FOLKS  —  Fred Thompson may not have impressed certain "inside-the-beltway" pundits in the run-up to his entry into the presidential race, but so far he seems to be doing fairly well among Republican voters.  The latest Rasmussen survey has him in a statistical dead-heat with Rudy Giuliani.
Rick Moran / American Thinker:
Novak Dispels Some Plame Myths  —  Robert Novak, who wrote the column that exposed the Plame connection to Joe Wilson's trip to Niger, has been trying unsuccessfully to set the record straight regarding the "outing" of Wilson's wife for a long time.  —  Novak's problem has been that the Plame narrative …

Barnes: Obama not "strong on national security" because he opposed war "when the entire world believed" Saddam had WMD  —  On the October 6 edition of Fox News' The Beltway Boys, co-host and Weekly Standard executive editor Fred Barnes claimed that Sen. Barack Obama (D-IL) is …
Orin Kerr / The Volokh Conspiracy:
FRANK RICH, CLARENCE THOMAS, AND THE MISSOURI ASSISTANT ATTORNEY GENERAL: In today's New York Times, Frank Rich has a rather nasty essay that purports to catch Justice Thomas misrepresenting his past.  The specific example is Justice Thomas's first job out of law school in the Missouri Attorney General's Office.

An Exit Toward Soul-Searching  —  As Bush Staffers Leave, Questions About Legacy Abound  —  It had been four days since Meghan O'Sullivan left her job at the White House.  Just four days since she gave up her Secret Service pass, her classified hard drive and her entree to the president.
