Frank Newport / Gallup:
If McCain vs. Obama, 28% of Clinton Backers Go for McCain  —  If McCain vs. Clinton, 19% of Obama backers go for McCain  —  PRINCETON, NJ — A sizable proportion of Democrats would vote for John McCain next November if he is matched against the candidate they do not support for the Democratic nomination.
Glenn Greenwald / Salon:   What can and cannot be spoken on television
Chavez says U.S. relations could worsen with McCain
Ed Morrissey / Hot Air:   Chavez: Anyone but McCain
Spencer Ackerman / The Washington Independent:
Maliki, Sadr, and the Wages of Sin  —  Iraqi PM Nouri al-Maliki is giving powerful Shiite cleric Moqtada Sadr's forces three days to surrender in Basra, as clashes between Maliki's security forces and Sadr's Mahdi Army—in which the U.S. intervenes on Maliki's side—escalate.
Byron York / The Corner:
Hell Has Officially Frozen Over  —  It caught my eye as a flash on Brit Hume a few moments ago, but here is a photo from Hillary Clinton's visit today to the editorial board of the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review.  In this picture, she is seen talking to none other than Richard Mellon Scaife …
Josh Marshall / Talking Points Memo:
YA THINK?  —  As you know, earlier today Hillary Clinton tried to stoke the Jeremiah Wright controversy by telling an editorial board meeting in Pittsburgh that Jeremiah Wright “would not have been my pastor” and then going on to note that she had denounced Don Imus in contrast to Obama's allegedly …
Noam Scheiber / The New Republic:
Time to Lose McPeak  —  I tell pretty much anyone who asks these days that we're in the phase of the campaign I don't find especially interesting.  Here, for example, are some things that got a lot of play recently which I don't care much about (and which I don't think have substantive implications …
Discussion: James Fallows and Marc Ambinder
Neal Gabler / New York Times:
The Maverick and the Media  —  Amagansett, N.Y.  —  IT is certainly no secret that Senator John McCain, the presumptive Republican presidential nominee, is a darling of the news media.  Reporters routinely attach “maverick,” “straight talker” and “patriot” to him like Homeric epithets.
The Politico:
Southern Dem warns party to avert disaster  —  Democrats are increasingly nervous about their party's protracted nomination fight, and some prominent figures are publicly warning that the party needs to act fast to avoid disaster.  —  Chief among these voices is Phil Bredesen …
Mark Halperin / Time:
Exclusive: Clinton Vows to Push On  —  Hillary Clinton is under a lot of pressure these days, but in a Tuesday interview she seemed cheery, confident and unapologetic as she talked about her determination to fight on in the Presidential race.  Speaking by phone from Pennsylvania …
Jennifer Parker / Political Punch:
Jarheads  —  In light of Tuzla-gate (catchy, no?), reporters are going over past statements by Sen. Hillary Clinton, D-NY, (and Sen. Barack Obama, D-Illinois) to see if others don't stand more rigorous examination.  —  One that may get renewed scrutiny is a story she told “Women in Military Service” …
Michelle Malkin:
Tuzla and truth deprivation
Discussion: Washington Post and The Sleuth
Ezra Klein / American Prospect:
IT'S NOT ABOUT POINTS.  —  James Fallows is a bit agog that the Clinton team would disseminate articles from The American Spectator — the same Spectator that spent the 90s conducting a fact-free witch hunt against the Clintons — to harm Obama.  In contrast, I'm much more surprised to see Clinton make a frontal attack on Wright.
Discussion: TPM Election Central
Maureen Dowd / New York Times:
Hillary or Nobody?  —  While the cool cat's away, the Hillary mice will play.  —  As Barack Obama was floating in the pool with his daughters the last few days in St. Thomas, some Clinton disciples were floating the idea of St. Hillary as his vice president.
Big Tent Democrat / TalkLeft:
Why The Obama/Clinton Rules Led Us To This Rough Campaign  —  When the Media and the Left blogs deplore the negativity of the Democratic presidential campaign, especially from the Clinton campaign, they ignore that they are a major reason why it has happened.  Why?
Noah Pollak / Commentary:
Obama's Hollow Doctrine  —  Spencer Ackerman has a long piece in the American Prospect which purports to be a serious exposition of Barack Obama's foreign policy and of his choice of foreign policy advisers.  Obama is said to have big, transformative ideas: He “is offering …
Tony Blankley / Real Clear Politics:
More Than Bluebirds in the Sky  —  From a popular English World War II song:  —  There'll be bluebirds over  —  The white cliffs of Dover,  —  Tomorrow, just you wait and see.  —  There'll be love and laughter  —  And peace ever after  —  Tomorrow, when the world is free.
