Three Good Reads
Make sure you read Jodi Kantor's excellent article about who Obama the lawyer might choose for the Supreme Court. Obama has said he will seek Republican input (which is more respect than they deserve), and he seems to be serious about that. But watch, the Republicans will act like idiots anyway.
A favorite line from the article: "The University of Chicago was and is full of eminent theorizers who wrap up huge areas of the law by applying some magic key." Boy, is THAT ever the truth!
Maureen Dowd stops writing about who she saw at whose party, and writes about something important, for a change.
And Frank Rich sums it all up pretty well.
