Barack Obama / New York Times:
My Plan for Iraq  —  THE call by Prime Minister Nuri Kamal al-Maliki for a timetable for the removal of American troops from Iraq presents an enormous opportunity.  We should seize this moment to begin the phased redeployment of combat troops that I have long advocated …

Kevin Drum / Washington Monthly:
THAT NEW YORKER COVER....I blogged a few hours ago about Ryan Lizza's Obama piece in the current issue of the New Yorker, but at the time I hadn't seen the cover that went along with it.  Now I have, because when I browsed through my RSS feed after dinner it turned out that the entire (liberal) …
Jonah Goldberg / The Corner:
Covers and Beholders  —  What I find interesting about the New Yorker cover is that it's almost exactly the sort of cover you could expect to find on the front of National Review.  Roman Genn could do wonders with that concept.  Of course, if we ran the exact same art …
Pareene / Gawker:
Remnick Defends Obama Cover, Idea That Readers Aren't Retards  —  This is the problem with being an editor or publisher or writer or cartoonist or even blogger and having some small lingering trace of a sense of irony—sometimes you accidentally assume that the Vast and Mysterious “Audience” shares that subversive French sense.

Tanta / Calculated Risk:
Krugman on the GSEs  —  Paul Krugman has a new column on Fannie and Freddie which I think is important.  I'm going to take issue with a fair amount of it, but not with the basic argument that the uproar over the GSEs is “overblown.”  That, I think is a point worth making.
Marc Ambinder:
On Immigration, Poison Pills Or Booster Shots?  —  In his speech to La Raza today, Sen. McCain blames Barack Obama in part for derailing the 2007 attempt at comprehensive immigration reform by larding up the bill with poison pill amendments. … One of the provisions McCain denounces …

DO YOUR JOB: STOP IGNORING SCHEUNEMANN'S PAST  —  As you can see, the McCain campaign is moving ahead with a new stab-in-the-back style attack on Obama over Iraq.  But as Team McCain is raising the volume on these slash-and-burn style attacks, it's time for some coverage of the guy who's McCain's brain on Iraq.
