Greg Sargent / TPM Election Central:

Peggy Noonan / Wall Street Journal:
Can Mrs. Clinton Lose?  —  If Hillary Clinton loses, does she know how to lose?  What will that be, if she loses?  Will she just say, “I concede” and go on vacation at a friend's house on an island, and then go back to the Senate and wait?  —  Is it possible she could be so normal?

White House:
Remarks by the President to the Conservative Political Action Conference  —  Washington, D.C.  —  THE PRESIDENT: Thank you, all.  Good morning.  I thank you for coming.  I apologize to my friend — he likes to sleep in.  (Laughter.)  —  I really do want to thank you all for adjusting the schedule.

Thoughts on the Current Mess  —  There were four developments that got conservatives into this mess — the inexcusable increase of federal spending from 2001-05 (that gave mendacious Democrats room to fabricate that the tax cuts had caused the red ink), the sordid scandals of 2005-7 …
Michael Graham / The Natural Truth:
The GOP Veepstakes: The Winning Number is Three  —  The denial phase is soon coming to an end, and disgruntled conservatives (as well as “gruntled” McCain supporters) will be asking “who is the running mate?”  The media speculation has already begun.  —  First answer: NOT Mitt Romney.
