Dancing Days Are Here Again For Hillary Clinton?  —  It was one of the happiest days we've seen her spend on the campaign trail in weeks — and given the last few days, a much needed one.  —  Hillary Clinton started her Sunday morning at an evangelical church in Puerto Rico …

Rebecca Sinderbrand / CNN:
Bill Clinton: ‘Cover up’ hiding Hillary Clinton's chances  —  (CNN) — Former President Bill Clinton said that Democrats were more likely to lose in November if Hillary Clinton is not the nominee, and suggested some were trying to “push and pressure and bully” superdelegates to make up their minds prematurely.
Discussion: Sweetness & Light
Andrew Sullivan / The Daily Dish:
Why Krugman Is Wrong  —  In his column today he suggests that two Clinton “gaffes” are inventions of the media and/or the Obama campaign.  Only when wrested from context is that in any way plausible.  In context, the response to what the Clintons were saying both times is perfectly understandable - and the Clinton implication ugly.

Paul Krugman / New York Times:
Divided They Stand  —  It is, in a way, almost appropriate that the final days of the struggle for the Democratic nomination have been marked by yet another fake Clinton scandal — the latest in a long line that goes all the way back to Whitewater.  —  This one, in case you missed it …
Kenneth P. Vogel / The Politico:
FEC computers can't handle Obama jackpot  —  The record-shattering fundraising by Democratic presidential candidates Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton has reshaped the financing of presidential elections and generated breathless coverage and analysis of the otherwise arcane area of campaign finance.
Aaron Gould Sheinin / Atlanta Journal-Constitution:
Libertarians pick Bob Barr to run for president  —  Candidate from Georgia says he's not trying to be GOP ‘spoiler’  —  Denver — Georgia's Bob Barr won a long and tense battle Sunday for the 2008 Libertarian Party's presidential nomination and now faces the daunting task of doing …

Election 2008: Kentucky Presidential Election  —  Kentucky: McCain 57% Obama 32%  —  In Kentucky, the latest Rasmussen Reports telephone survey shows John McCain leading Barack Obama by twenty-five percentage points, 57% to 32%.  The candidates remain evenly matched nationally …
Andrew Sullivan / The Daily Dish:
Sistani vs McCain  —  The entire premise of John McCain's view of Iraq policy going forward is that the US will be able to position permanent military bases in the heart of the Middle East, on the model of Japan and South Korea.  The trouble is: Iraq is part of the holiest territory in Islam …

Klaus Marre / The Hill:
White House rips NYT for ‘misleading’ editorial  —  The White House on Monday blasted The New York Times for “irresponsibly distort[ing] President Bush's strong commitment to strengthening and expanding support for America's service members and their families.”
New York Times:
Mr. Bush and the G.I. Bill  —  President Bush opposes a new G.I. Bill of Rights.  He worries that if the traditional path to college for service members since World War II is improved and expanded for the post-9/11 generation, too many people will take it.  —  He is wrong, but at least he is consistent.
Dallas Morning News:
Dallas Republican proposes cure for what ails GOP  —  WASHINGTON - The last time House Republicans were this lost, they turned to Newt Gingrich to lead them from the wilderness.  He put together a Contract With America to give voters a clear way to distinguish the D's from the R's.

Taylor Marsh:
Buyer's Remorse  —  How Rank and File Democrats are Rejecting Their ‘Inevitable’ Nominee  —  PART ONE: ALL VOTERS, GENDER, AND RACE  —  Ever since the media declared that Barack Obama was -??inevitable-?? after February 19th, based on a two week period when the an unprepared Hillary Clinton …

granma.cu:
The empire's hypocritical politics  —  IT would be dishonest of me to remain silent after hearing the speech Obama delivered on the afternoon of May 23 at the Cuban American National Foundation created by Ronald Reagan.  I listened to his speech, as I did McCain's and Bush's.
Alexandra Zavis / Los Angeles Times:
Iraq violence falls to four-year low, U.S. says  —  Children jump and run as Iraqi troops arrive in their neighborhood to distribute food rations in the impoverished Sadr City district of eastern Baghdad.  Iraqi troops poured into the Baghdad Shiite bastion of Sadr City three days ago …
