  • Winning is charismatic, not necessarily the other way around.
  • Medicaid cuts are on the table in debt ceiling talks.
  • Top Republicans aren’t amenable to a payroll tax cut extension because unemployment is high.
  • The states¬†where high unemployment could hurt Obama.

  • CIA and Senate sites hacked.
