Be in the know: Today's political bullet points

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

(1) Most importantly today, my wife has now more or less successfully survived me for ten consecutive years.

(2) The question today is whether Harry Reid can survive Nevada's voters. The DSCC is scrambling to divert money from Missouri and elsewhere to Nevada to save Reid. Conservatives are suspicious that Beltway Republicans are privately rooting for a Reid victory to smack conservatives who pulled for Sharron Angle. Whether the NRSC reciprocates will be a signal.

(3) Jim Marshall (D-GA), Bill Owens (D-NY), and others want everyone to know they are "Boehner Democrats," voting with Boehner over 60% of the time. Responsible reporters will want to ask two questions: (1) Will you then vote for him for Speaker and (2) will you become a Republican?

Symbols: Chile proves that government can work.

Words: The Pledge to America proves to be a flop as middle class voters ask candidates about unemployment and not how to give those with the top jobs a tax cut.

Deeds: If the GOP weren't obnoxious to Latino voters they would have the Senate in the bag and if the Democrats had been more proactive with Latinos earlier this year they would have no worries.
