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:

– Florida jumps to January 31st. This is going to move the calendar early for Iowa and New Hampshire, probably South Carolina, too. But can't we have a serious discussion on ending the Iowa Caucuses as the first in the national election?

– Chris Christie is the Schrodinger's Cat of American Politics. In his speech last night at the Reagan Library, half the audience heard him say he was running. The other half heard him say he was not running. He did, however, refer back to a prior speech he'd given when he made clear he was not running. Maybe he and Romney are just playing a game to keep donors on the sidelines.

– While Chris Christie was speaking, Sarah Palin was stealing some of his spotlight much as she has done with Mitt Romney, Michele Bachmann, and Rick Perry — except fewer and fewer people are paying attention. On Fox News last night she actually said the Presidency might shackle her and prevent her from calling it like she sees it. Meanwhile, she can't even call the 2012 race like she sees it.
