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:

– Sarah Palin told the GOP this weekend to fight like a girl. Donald Trump is ahead in some polls. The GOP base is ready for a fight.

– S&P's note this morning about the long term sovereign debt situation did not mention the debt ceiling. No doubt politicians will claim it did as they work toward a compromise.

– Georgia Senator Saxby Chambliss says the government needs more revenue. Sounds like Georgia needs a new Senator.

Senior Editor of Mario Solis-Marich:

– Bye Bye Love: Top Latina Obama spokesperson tells multiple Spanish language TV audiences that Obama will not use executive power to help DREAM students proving that reelection is not a top White House priority.

– Who Are You?: Leader Reid tells that Marco Rubio needs to remember where he comes from and that he is confident the new Florida Senator will learn to do a “better job” in the Senate.

– Money Can’t Buy Me Love: Colorado political dynasty heir and David Axelrod client, Chris Romer, finds himself in a three way tie for Mayor after outspending his opponents three to one.

Editor’s Note: The blog is a place for a freewheeling exchange of ideas and opinions. CNN does not endorse anything said by its contributors
