Be in the know: Today's political bullet points

Every day we ask influential politicos to send us their top three bullet points that are driving the day's conversation inside and outside Washington.

Firedoglake.com Blogger/Founder Jane Hamsher:

Polling Shows Democrats Poised to Make Big Gains in 2012 House Races.

Newly Published Notes of Bruce Jessen Reveal Real Purpose of Bush's Torture Program.

Libya Reminds Us Almost No One in Washington Cares About Deficits.

RedState.Com Editor Erick-Woods Erickson:

– Joe Biden thinks Barack Obama should be impeached over Libya, or something like that. In a 2007 interview with Chris Matthews, Biden said if the President went to war without congressional approval and the United States was neither attacked nor in imminent danger of attack, the President should be impeached. "War", as Biden defined it, meant bombing Iran without congressional approval.

– Tim Pawlenty has announced a Presidential Exploratory Committee. He announced it on Facebook so people wouldn't fall asleep as they no doubt would have should they attend a Pawlenty press conference.

– Odyssey is defined as "a long and eventful or adventurous journey." Exactly what are we getting ourselves into in Libya with Germany now pulling out of the coalition, Russia and China wanting a ceasefire, etc.?
