Conservative Support Aids Bid in Nebraska to Ban Death Penalty, via @nytimes. What an interesting debate. http://t.co/fXHoJwz5XmWonder if this whole @JebBush flap means that candidates can no longer duck questions by calling them "hypothetical?"To quote the old Nike ad, "Just do it!"

Welcome to the Obama Presidential Center! http://t.co/akcUy0KXa4Don't agree with all of it, but I appreciate the thoughtful review and kind words for BELIEVER! https://t.co/ZLpAUImNol.@JebBush runs great risk if he insists that, based on what we know TODAY, he would have followed his brother's path in Iraq.

Does he really need the help?Cameron now has to wrestle with two challenges he mined in race: Scottish and English nationalism, and vote he promised on EU membership.In all my years as journalist & strategist, I've never seen as stark a failure of polling as in UK. Huge project ahead to unravel that.Congratulations to my friend @Messina2012 on his role in the resounding Conservative victory in Britain.Disappointed by Thursday's result, but I'll always be proud of @Ed_Miliband & his heartfelt battle to make Britain work for all her people.

Noteworthy that given multiple chances 2nite to deny report he'd cut crucial child benefits, Cameron ducked & dodged. What does that say?Cameron deliberately misleading about his planned spending cuts - spending cuts will double next year, biggest cuts of any advanced economy
Retweeted by David AxelrodThe A&E in crisis, with 1m waiting more than 4hours is one reason the #bbcqt audience (and voters) don't trust Cameron on the NHS.
Retweeted by David AxelrodWhat Cameron inherited was an economy growing at 0.6%. What he's leaving is an economy growing at 0.3%. Those are the hard numbers. #bbcqt

Rahm's big lead based on African-American and Lakefront voters. Looks closer to Harold Washington's coalition than Chuy's voters.
