Gallup Daily: Tracking Election 2008  —  Based on daily polling from Jan. 29-31, 2008  —  PRINCETON, NJ — Gallup Poll Daily tracking shows Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama as close as they have been since the polling program started at the beginning of 2008.
Ed Morrissey / Captain's Quarters:
Has Ann Coulter Finally Jumped The Shark?  —  She did for me last year at CPAC, of course, when she derided John Edwards as a “faggot”.  At the time, a number of conservative bloggers wrote that she had embarrassed the movement and owed Edwards an apology, which she refused to offer.
Hugh Hewitt /
Romney v. McCain v. Coulter v. Obama  —  If Ann Coulter's declares again that she'd campaign for Hillary at CPAC, she will be booed and rightly so.  Not only did her grandstanding on Hannity & Colmes divert attention from the real issue before conservatives —the need to abandon the idea …

Ari Melber / The Nation:
MOVEON ENDORSES OBAMA...  Today Barack Obama earned the endorsement of MoveOn, one of the largest grassroots membership organizations in the United States, after clobbering Hillary Clinton by 40 percent in Internet balloting.  Obama led the final tally 70.4% to 29.6%, clearing the supermajority required for the endorsement.
Joshua Green / The Atlantic Online:
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.

Ezra Klein / American Prospect:
OBAMA'S “HARRY AND LOUISE” AD.  —  I was going to write a post about the health care exchange in last night's debate, noting that Hillary Clinton is basically arguing against Barack Obama's mandate from the wrong direction.  The problem isn't that it leaves people out, but that it effectively closes off …
Ben Smith / The Politico:
That health care mailer  —  The Clinton campaign convened a conference call with health policy experts to denounce Obama's new mailer, which attacks Clinton's plan for “forcing” Americans to sign up for insurance, and which features a couple at a kitchen table that recalls, for some …
Paul Krugman / New York Times:
The Edwards Effect  —  So John Edwards has dropped out of the race for the presidency.  By normal political standards, his campaign fell short.  —  But Mr. Edwards, far more than is usual in modern politics, ran a campaign based on ideas.  And even as his personal quest for the White House faltered …
Paul Krugman:
Obama does Harry and Louise, again  —  The Obama campaign sends out an ugly mailer.  Sorry, but this is just destructive — like the Obama plan, the Clinton plan offers subsidies to lower-income families.  And BO himself has conceded that he might have to penalize people who don't buy insurance until they need care.
Daily Mail:
Al Qaeda use two 'Down's syndrome' women to blow up 73 people in Baghdad markets  —  Two women thought to suffer from Down's syndrome may have been unwilling suicide bombers in twin blasts that killed up to 73 people at pet markets in Baghdad today.  —  The first bomber instantly killed 45 people …

New York Times:
Senator Wants N.F.L. Spying Case Explained  —  The ranking Republican on the Senate Judiciary Committee wants N.F.L. Commissioner Roger Goodell to explain why the league destroyed evidence related to spying by the New England Patriots.  —  In the stretch of 12 days, from Sept. 9 to Sept. 20 …
Los Angeles Times:
Barack Obama for Democratic nominee  —  Democrats preparing to vote in Tuesday's California primary can mark their ballots with confidence, knowing that either candidate would make a strong nominee and, if elected, a groundbreaking leader and capable president.
Wall Street Journal:
Romney's Convictions  —  Mitt Romney has emerged as the last Republican with a chance to stop John McCain, and there's no doubt he's a candidate from central casting: successful in business and politics, a family man, and quicker and more articulate than most.
