Michael Moore / Mike's Message:
My Vote's for Obama (if I could vote) Michael Moore  —  I don't get to vote for President this primary season.  I live in Michigan.  The party leaders (both here and in D.C.) couldn't get their act together, and thus our votes will not be counted.  —  So, if you live in Pennsylvania, can you do me a favor?
Michelle Cottle / The New Republic:

Nora Ephron / The Huffington Post:
White Men  —  Here's another thing I don't like about this primary: now that there are only two Democratic candidates, it's suddenly horribly absolutely crystal-clear that this is an election about gender and race.  This may have always been true, but weeks ago it wasn't so obvious …
John Engler / Wall Street Journal:
What Nafta Trade Deficit?  —  It is amazing how some presidential candidates are blaming the North American Free Trade Agreement for U.S. job losses.  They seem to believe that a substantial part of the three million manufacturing jobs lost since 2000 resulted from Nafta …

William Kristol / New York Times:
Exodus Exegesis  —  Every presidential campaign has to produce a stream of appropriate statements for religious holidays, patriotic commemorations, and the like.  Campaigns don't expect to win votes with these messages.  They produce them because there's a risk of giving offense to some group or other if they don't.
J. Bennett Guess /
