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.

RedState.Com Editor Erick-Woods Erickson:

– Is Superman racist? He decides he no longer wants to be a tool of American foreign policy and rejects his American citizenship after we elect our first African American President. But in the 1970's he was made a citizen of all UN member countries, so he is still a citizen of Libya, Iran, Syria, and China.

– It's a royal wedding. Fascinating how many American's are fascinated by the wedding of a future monarch whose ancestors we threw overboard two hundred years ago. But I remember watching Princess Di and Chuck get married. It is one of my first TV memories. I was five.

– Pennsylvania, Nevada, and New Hampshire don't look good for the President, but Republicans shouldn't get cocky. Bill Clinton was at 44% in March of 1995.
