Rep. Lewis: Report of delegate switch to Obama ‘not accurate’  —  A story in Friday New York Times that said U.S. Rep. John Lewis (D-Ga.) was going to back Barack Obama for president is inaccurate, a spokeswoman for the former civil rights leader told the Atlanta Journal-Constitution this morning.
Peggy Noonan / Wall Street Journal:

Putin vs. Clinton  —  When Hillary Clinton said, way back in New Hampshire, that Vladimir Putin “doesn't have a soul,” I figured that would be the sort of thing the Russian wouldn't be pleased about.  But when I called the foreign ministry the next day for comment, it was Orthodox Christmas, and I let it slide.
