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.

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 …
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.

The Wars We Choose to Ignore  —  Gen. John A. Logan was a Union officer, a fierce Republican partisan, an early advocate of the kind of volunteer army the United States now fights wars with.  He is also one of the people credited with coming up with the holiday that we celebrate today.
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.
