News Shocker: Ron Paul biggest GOP fundraiser last quarter  —  Well, it's official, ladies and gentlemen.  Believe it or not, Rep. Ron Paul, the 72-year-old Texan who hardly ever gets mentioned in Republican political news and the one-time libertarian who always gets the least time on TV debates …

Waiting for Gore  —  It feels official: Barack Obama has momentum.  He won a resounding victory in South Carolina.  He just posted another astonishing fundraising total.  Gallup reports that he's pulled to within four points of Hillary Clinton.  And Ted Kennedy's endorsement Monday had the feel of history about it.

Buried WMD Scoop  —  Journalists are taught never to “bury the lead.”  Yet it looks as if that's precisely what CBS's “60 Minutes” did in reporter Scott Pelley's fascinating interview Sunday with George Piro, the FBI agent who debriefed Saddam Hussein following his capture in December 2003.

Times Reporter Subpoenaed Over Source for Book  —  WASHINGTON — A federal grand jury has issued a subpoena to a reporter of The New York Times, apparently to try to force him to reveal his confidential sources for a 2006 book on the Central Intelligence Agency, one of the reporter's lawyers said Thursday.

Coulter: If McCain's the nominee, I'll campaign for Hillary  —  The ne plus ultra of conservatives crapping away Iraq in a fit of spite at Maverick: “I think she would be stronger on the war on terrorism.”  Madness.  —  Blowback
Matt Welch / Los Angeles Times:
He's a hawk on the war, yet independent-minded voters who are sick of Iraq are voting for him anyway.  —  John McCain will likely go down in history as the first GOP presidential nominee who vaulted to the front of the pack despite failing to win a plurality among self-identified Republicans in any of the early state primaries.
