CHIEF GOOF  —  TPM Reader JM laments how Penn destroyed Hillary's campaign ...  There's a lot of truth in this, except for Hillary's and I think Bill's unique responsibility for putting Penn in charge of the campaign (strategy, message, polling, whatever term you want to use).

Josh Marshall / Talking Points Memo:
FULL FIRING?  OR JUST GELDED?  —  Is Penn really out?  Completely, positively out?  —  Here's the statement ...  The campaign statement says Geoff Garin and Howard Wolfson are taking over strategy and message.  But Garin's a pollster.  So the logic of the situation says he's taking over the polling.

Worst President Ever  —  In a History News Network poll, 61 percent of historians say that George W. Bush has been the worst president ever.  It's very hard to know what to make of these kind of questions.  How can you possibly try to evaluate someone like, say, Andrew Jackson in contemporary terms?
