Karl Rove / Wall Street Journal:
Is Obama Ready for Prime Time?  —  After being pummeled 55% to 45% in the Pennsylvania primary, Barack Obama was at a loss for explanations.  The best he could do was to compliment his supporters in an email saying, “you helped close the gap to a slimmer margin than most thought possible.”
Charlie Cook / National Journal Online:
Hillary's Political Purgatory  —  CLINTON HAS SPENT WEEKS IN A HORRIBLE SITUATION.  EVEN IN VICTORY, SHE ISN'T GETTING ANY CLOSER TO WINNING THE NOMINATION.  —  Sat.  —  The good news for Hillary Rodham Clinton is that she's winning a lot of battles.  The bad news is that the war is pretty much lost.
Jeanne Cummings / The Politico:

Joe Klein / Time:
The Incredibly Shrinking Democrats  —  “This election,” Bill Clinton said in the hours before the Pennsylvania primary, “is too big to be small.”  It was a noble sentiment, succinctly stated, and the core of what Democrats believe — that George W. Bush has been a historic screwup as President …
Patrick Healy / New York Times:
Assessing Strength in Swing States  —  Reflecting on her victory in the Pennsylvania primary, Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton on Wednesday neatly summed up the chief political rationale of her enduring candidacy.  —  “I won the states that we have to win — Ohio, now Pennsylvania,” …
Josh Marshall / Talking Points Memo:
GETTING REAL  —  I think I've said this a hundred times, as have many others.  But this article in Thursday's Times is a good moment to revisit the point.  As Patrick Healy explains, it is simply a fallacy to claim that winning a state's Democratic primary means you're more likely to win …
City Journal:
Obama's Real Bill Ayers Problem  —  Barack Obama complains that he's been unfairly attacked for a casual political and social relationship with his neighbor, former Weatherman Bill Ayers.  Obama has a point.  In the ultraliberal Hyde Park community where the presidential candidate first earned …
City Journal:
The Ed Schools' Latest—and Worst—Humbug  —  Teaching for “social justice” is a cruel hoax on disadvantaged kids.  —  In 1980, Bill Ayers and his partner Bernardine Dohrn came up from the underground—the Weather Underground, that is.  It had been a wild ride for the Bonnie and Clyde of the sixties New Left.

Ayers, though quieter, ‘still outspoken’
Robin Wright / Washington Post:
N. Koreans Taped At Syrian Reactor  —  A video taken inside a secret Syrian facility last summer convinced the Israeli government and the Bush administration that North Korea was helping to construct a reactor similar to one that produces plutonium for North Korea's nuclear arsenal …
Nick Timiraos / Wall Street Journal:
Obama, Clinton Split Over McCain Plan For Gas-Tax Holiday  —  In a new policy split in the presidential campaign, Barack Obama opposed a federal gas-tax holiday supported by John McCain, the likely Republican nominee.  Hillary Clinton said she would be open to the tax break.

Showing the Obama-Clinton Divide in Decision Tree Infographic  —  Amanda Cox, of The New York Times, made another excellent graphic (and I wouldn't expect anything less).  We see an entire story between Obama and Clinton - positions taken, counties won, and counties lost.  Go ahead and take a look.
Josh Meyer / Los Angeles Times:
Gap opens between Al Qaeda and allies  —  A backlash builds over the network's tactics, including suicide attacks.  Its leaders try to defuse the anger.  —  WASHINGTON — Al Qaeda increasingly faces sharp criticism from once-loyal sympathizers who openly question its ideology and tactics …
Carl Hulse / New York Times:
Republican Senators Block Pay Discrimination Measure  —  WASHINGTON — Senate Republicans on Wednesday blocked a measure intended to overturn a Supreme Court decision limiting pay discrimination suits in a politically charged vote certain to be replayed in the presidential and Congressional campaigns.
Nicholas D. Kristof / New York Times:
Better Roses Than Cocaine  —  For seven years, Democrats have rightfully complained that President Bush has gratuitously antagonized the world, exasperating our allies and eroding America's standing and influence.  —  But now the Democrats are doing the same thing on trade.
Discussion: Daily Pundit and American Power
Manu Raju / The Hill:
