I think that's great.
Manu Raji and Marin Cogan (POLITICO) report that some Dems aren't sure if they can afford to endorse Barack in 2012:
Here's C.I.'s "Iraq snapshot:"
A number of moderate Democrats like Texas Rep. Henry Cuellar and liberals like Sen. Bernie Sanders are declining to give their unqualified support for the president, saying they’re either too focused on their own races or are calling on the White House to cater to their agendas before they will offer an endorsement. Some up for reelection in red states or in swing districts fear that even showing up on stage with Obama will give their opponents an image to seize upon — much as Democrats did in 2008 when they repeatedly flashed shots of Sen. John McCain hugging President George W. Bush.
This was from an Iraq analysis and you should read the full analysis.
This was Cindy Sheehan and her sister Dede Miller.
This was Bruce Dixon.
Jim breaks down the edition.
This was a brief editorial and wewondered about that. But Ava andC.I. has a reallly long piece and Dona called for short pieces as a result.
This is a really solid piece of reporting by Ava and C.I. and all the more so when you grasp that they did this at the last minute and were making calls, etc. They had done another piece and didn't have it in them for a TV piece so they did media and went with what's going on with Hulu.
This is their epic. I love this. It's the best thing in the edition, absolutely. It may be the best thing of the month. They did agreat job here.
The Congress piece. Did we need this? Were we all on the same page? Jim made an important point, that not all readers of 3rd read the other community sites. Hold on for when I come back to that later.
We continue our selection of the best books of the last 10 years.

The Katrina vanden Hovel has a 'book' out.
A piece on the decrease in quality among Sun Maid goods.
This is huge at Third. It's a repost of C.I. from the Wednesday snapshot last week. Jim says today the stats are off the charts on this one and so are the e-mails. And his point? He told me that there were some e-mails last week griping that C.I. was focusing on women. Where as, at Third, the thing was an immediate hit with no criticism. That goes to the different audiences Jim had told me about yesterday.
