Josh Marshall / Talking Points Memo:
MY TAKE ON THE DEM DEBATE  —  So, a few observations about the Democratic debate.  —  First, a few months ago, I said that I didn't get what Barack Obama thought he was doing in one of the debates, that he was doing a very good job debating as the frontrunner, when in fact he was falling further and further behind Hillary Clinton.

New York Times:
At Debate, Two Rivals Go After Defiant Clinton  —  MANCHESTER, N.H. — It was as if they sensed vulnerability.  —  Senator Barack Obama and John Edwards went after Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton as never before in a televised debate here on Saturday night.
Jennifer Parker / Political Punch:
Hillary's Debate Moment  —  It won't come across on the transcript, but Sen. Hillary Clinton got angry during the debate tonight.  —  She was bickering with Sen. Barack Obama about their differences on health insurance, and whether Obama's plan leaves millions of Americans uninsured.

Hindrocket / Power Line:
LAST NIGHT'S DEBATE: A POST-MORTEM  —  I wasn't able to watch the Republican debate last night, so I viewed it this morning here.  I haven't read any newspaper coverage of the debate yet, but have briefly scanned 30 or 40 emails from the campaigns, from which it appears that, as usual, all of the candidates are claiming victory.

George McGovern / Washington Post:
Why I Believe Bush Must Go  —  Nixon Was Bad.  These Guys Are Worse.  —  As we enter the eighth year of the Bush-Cheney administration, I have belatedly and painfully concluded that the only honorable course for me is to urge the impeachment of the president and the vice president.
Kevin Drum / Washington Monthly:
THE PACK....Ezra Klein watches pack journalism at work, 2008 style, and it's not pretty.  Nickel version: If some other reporter says Hillary Clinton melted down because she displayed a flash of emotion in last night's debate, then she melted down.  After all, who are you going to believe, the spin room or your own lyin' eyes?

Ezra Klein / American Prospect:
THE PRESS CORPS.  —  Read Chris Hayes on the psychology of the press corps here.  I'd add that it's a bit astonishing to watch the real-time narrative construction that went on at last night's debate.  I must have heard the term “meltdown” in reference to Hillary 65 times.

Christopher Hayes / The Nation:
WHY CAMPAIGN COVERAGE SO OFTEN SUCKS...
Alessandra Stanley / New York Times:
He Came, and He Saw, but Did He Moderate?  —  The first debates after the Iowa caucuses were a crucible for the candidates, but they were also a test of the Gibson Doctrine.  ABC's anchor, Charles Gibson, began the evening with a policy statement: “The less of a moderator, the better.”
Discussion: TVNewser and LewRockwell.com Blog

Mike Allen / The Politico:
Playbook: Bradley to endorse Obama  —  Good Sunday morning.  —  The local front of the (Manchester) Union Leader has a story about media groupies who, in a quadrennial ritual, congregate around hotels in hopes of getting a photo with Chris Wallace or Tucker Carlson.

Fred to MSM: ‘I Owe You Nothing’  —  Fred Thompson today blasted the media for propagating a false rumor about his impending withdrawal, while reinforcing the role he has created for himself as the candidate in this race who does not suffer unwelcome questions gladly.

Bishop warns of no-go zones for non-Muslims  —  Islamic extremists have created “no-go” areas across Britain where it is too dangerous for non-Muslims to enter, one of the Church of England's most senior bishops warns today.  —  The Rt Rev Michael Nazir-Ali, the Bishop of Rochester …

American Al Qaeda Leader To Bush: ‘We Will Be Waiting For You’  —  Native Californian Al Qaeda Leader Makes Threats Against Bush Middle East Visit  —  American Al Qaeda leader Adam Gadahn told his followers to welcome Bush “with bombs and traps” upon his upcoming visit to the Middle East this week.
Nicholas Confessore / New York Times:
Scratch Bloomberg's Surface, Find a Democrat  —  Hundreds of miles from the hustings of New Hampshire lurks a possible presidential candidate who supports gay marriage, abortion rights and stricter regulation of handguns.  Who doesn't mind taxing the rich on their income or big companies on their carbon emissions.
George Will / Real Clear Politics:
The Problem with Populists  —  WASHINGTON — Like Job after losing his camels and acquiring boils, the conservative movement is in distress.  Mike Huckabee shreds the compact that has held the movement's two tendencies in sometimes uneasy equipoise.  Social conservatives …
