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:

– The winner of last night's debate? CNN. Thus far it remains the only network capable of holding a debate and asking questions conservatives care about in picking their nominee while holding the camera steady so people don't get seasick watching.

– Herman Cain's 9-9-9 is starting to wear thin after just one night of attack. He claims he would pass the plan making it impossible to change except by a 2/3 majority in Congress. That in and of itself would be unconstitutional.

– The President's jobs bill has died at bipartisan hands. He'll blame the Republicans, but they weren't the only ones stopping it.
