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:

– A New Yorker article out by Ryan Lizza suggests that Hillary Clinton is much more the realist adult in the White House and Obama continues to try to split the baby in foreign policy.

– The Gang of Six is inching closer to a deal that will please no one but themselves and the Washington Press Corps, which will no doubt hail it as "adult".

– John Ensign's somewhat surprising resignation from the Senate will most likely keep the Nevada seat safe for the GOP and also diminish Barack Obama's ability to make it a swing state in 2012.

Senior Editor of Mario Solis-Marich:

– Sunrise Service: Obama met with immigrant rights and business groups and lectured about his reform efforts and promised a push for action on reform from Congress – but did not commit the use of his own executive power.

– Rabbit Hole: Wiki-Leak’s strikes again revealing Guantanamo to be a legal and political morass that perhaps no administration will ever be free of without congressional leadership.

– Hidden Egg: Arizona’s SB1070 becomes a year old and the network news media ignores the disastrous results of the costly bill that has not improved border security and has made Gov. Jan Brewer the biggest failure in state government.
