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:
– Chris Christie is not running, just as he said last month, the month before, the month before that, and the month before that.
– President Obama says he is the "underdog," but is just being unpopular worthy of that title? Most Americans cheer the underdog and fewer and fewer Americans are cheering Barack Obama.
– Big story among conservatives today: what did Eric Holder know and when did he know it regarding Operation Fast and Furious, the gun running operation into Mexico. Republicans want a special counsel as new documents surface that seem to show Eric Holder knew about the operation almost a year before he told Congress he knew about it.
John Avlon: Senior Political Columnist for TheDailyBeast.com John Avlon:
– Chris Christie Not Running – This is not Breaking News – Generalissimo Francisco Franco is still dead.
– West Virginia Special Election – This the real political news of the day – a special election for Governor, and polls show that it’s too close to call. The incumbent is Joe Manchin’s successor – the GOP contender is a first-time candidate backed by 527 ads tying Obama-care to the incumbent. The PPP poll shows this too close to call.
– Wall Street Uprising – Their list of demands range from the reasonable – reinstate Glass-Stegal Act, to the ain’t-gonna-happen, like guaranteed national minimum income, open borders and abolishing credit agencies. And dressing like Zombies isn’t a good strategy for getting your "demands" taken seriously.
