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: Blogger/Founder Jane Hamsher:

The Impending Eviction of Occupy Boston

Romney More Electable than Gingrich, but Just Barely

Iran Shows US Drone on State-Run TV

RedState.Com Editor Erick-Woods Erickson:

– The Romney campaign is doing what it had not done, attacking a candidate. The campaign is amping up its attacks on Gingrich. One hindrance? It's Christmas. It's harder for people to pay attention.

– Household net worth has dropped the most since 2008. Everything is more expensive and people have less money to spend. Just in time for Election 2012.

– Big fight for conservatives: Roy Blunt vs. Ron Johnson for Senate Republican Vice Chairman. Watch this race to see who is on which side. It is an interesting fight within the Senate GOP over the direction of the Senate.
