Greg Sargent / TPM Election Central:
Hillary Personally Slams Obama Over Reagan Comments  —  The Hillary campaign clearly made a decision to go all out on Obama's Reagan comments today.  Hillary herself just lit into Obama over them in Las Vegas, according to a transcript provided by her campaign:

Dan Savage / Slog:
OMG: A Reporter Not a Stenographer!  —  Romney lies and a reporter busts him—in real time, on camera.  Romney says his campaign isn't run by lobbyists, and he doesn't have lobbyists “tied to” his campaign.  Watch this:  —  The reporter sitting on the floor putting actual, tough …

Jonathan Stein / MoJoBlog:
Mitt Romney's Lobbyist Connections  —  In a tense exchange with an AP reporter on Thursday, Mitt Romney insisted that even though a registered lobbyist is one of his senior advisers, lobbyists do not “run” his campaign.  —  The claim is part of Romney's new self-styled outsider message …
Fred File:
The Constitution is Not a “Living, Breathing Document”  —  This morning I heard that one of the other candidates commented that the Constitution is a “living, breathing document."  —  Frankly, I assumed this came from Senator Clinton or Senator Obama.  It is identical to what Al Gore …
Bryan / Hot Air:
Video: Huckabee says the Constitution is a “living, breathing document” Update: Huck's website disagrees  —  The comment came during an interview with CNN this morning.  —  I'm not going to rant about this.  I will point out that Huckabee's position doesn't square up well with the …

The Democrats Spar Over Reagan's Legacy  —  Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama have spent a few days sparring over over Ronald Reagan and the conservative movement.  —  Obama has said this before, in different words: Here's the original remark, from a meeting editorialists in Reno:

Michael Gerson / Washington Post:
Callous Conservative  —  After watching Fred Thompson debate his Republican rivals, I have often wondered why he is not in the top tier of candidates.  He seems to have John McCain's honesty, without his razor-sharp edges, and Mitt Romney's conservatism, without his jaw-dropping inconsistencies.
The New Republic:
McCain, You Depress Me  —  My colleague Leon has been “rather stirred” by many things about John McCain, including his “decency about immigrants."  I'm rather stirred by that too — it is my favorite thing about McCain, his capacity to argue that it's a profoundly American imperative …

Obama Debuts New Act in Vegas  —  LAS VEGAS (AP) - The White House campaign has brought a new act to Vegas.  Barack Obama has stepped up his campaign against Hillary Rodham Clinton, and he's trying to use humor to bring her down before this weekend's Democratic presidential caucus.

Chris Weitz on His “Golden Compass” Fiasco: Blame the Media  —  The writer-director of “The Golden Compass,” Chris Weitz, is peeved.  The movie tanked so badly that the second and third installments are not going to be made (it did fairly well overseas, but unfortunately for New Line Cinema …

THE NEVADA CAUCUS: Poll: Nevada going to Clinton, Romney  —  Obama picks up no ground; Giuliani fades  —  Democrat Hillary Clinton and Republican Mitt Romney have comfortable leads in Nevada going into Saturday's presidential campaign caucuses, according to a new Review-Journal poll.
Matthew Yglesias:
Placing the Candidates  —  Interesting chart from the Pew Center.  One piece of bad news for liberals is that it seems that the self-assessed ideology of the American people is still somewhat right of center.  It's also funny how unhinged Republicans' views of Hillary Clinton are.
Dr. Rusty Shackleford / The Jawa Report:
Official Taliban Websites Hosted in US  —  Several official websites belonging to the Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan, the group better known as theTaliban, are back up once again and operating on US soil.  The websites are named the “Voice of Jihad".  —  Again the Taliban webmaster …
Jonathan Chait / The New Republic:
McCain Lies His Head Off; NY Times Asleep at Switch  —  One of the most common-supply-side talking points is that tax cuts always lead to higher tax revenues.  It's not really true (revenues crashed after the 2001 Bush tax cuts) but even if it were, it's misleading: Tax revenues tend to rise …
Andrew Romano / Stumper:
Best.  Campaign.  Question.  Ever.  —  CLEMSON, S.C.—Imagine a wiry little man with a flop of gray hair.  He's wearing a brown leather bomber jacket.  Medium build.  Every word he says, he shouts.  Like he's half deaf.  Sounds like an irate hillbilly, even if he's not.  (He could be.)
