The latest on the Cindy McCain recipe debacle seems to be that the McCain powers that be are blaming it all on an intern. Oh great … find the lowest-ranking person in the room and blame everything on him/her. Now where have we seen that before? (Can you say torture?)
Tonight in North Carolina Hillary and Obama will go toe-to-toe for the first time in six weeks, in preparation for Tuesday’s votes. I am looking forward to seeing how they engage after these weeks of sniping and skirmishing. Typically, Hillary shines in the debate format, but Barack has been getting better and better. I doubt that we’ll see anything decisive tonight … but you never know! (And if you’d like to track the superdelegates in your state, or somewhere else, check out this state-by-state superdelegate table for the latest counts!)
In a passionate plea for journalism that offers substance, Robert Reich addresses the debased reporting of the whole “bitterness” issue and calls Tim Russert to task (oh-so-rightly) for swimming in spin.

Okay – I’m off. See you at the debate!?
