Not Ready For Prime Time  —  Barack Obama appeared on 60 Minutes last night, and once again he offered change.  Unfortunately, the kind of change offered appeared to be the same he accuses his opponents of offering — waffling on the status of troops in Iraq.
Ed Morrissey / Captain's Quarters:
A Flag Obama Supporters Salute?  —  Oh, my.  Barack Obama may want to call his new Houston office and suggest some decorating ideas.  Take a look at the flag flying in the office at the moment:  —  No, that's not a Texas state flag with a picture of Obama on it.

Krugman: Sigh  —  Paul Krugman's column today is just bizarre: … Note to self: whenever someone writes an article that doesn't reference any specific individual, just a mindset attributed to an entire group of people, beware.  —  I have no doubt that most of the venom that Krugman sees comes from Obama supporters.
Ari Emanuel / The Huffington Post:
My Brother the Superdelegate and Why I Don't Trust Him to Pick the Next President  —  My brother Rahm Emanuel is a superdelegate.  I love my brother, and I trust my brother.  But I gave up letting my brother dictate my life since he determined whether he got the top or bottom bunk in our bedroom back in Chicago.

Clive Crook / Financial Times:
Why Democrats must choose Obama  —  The manager or the visionary.  Hillary Clinton's own supporters - the candidate herself, in speech after speech - have cast the fight this way.  Stirred emotions and soaring rhetoric are all very well, goes the line.  If that is what you want, vote for Barack Obama.
