'Spitzer is likely to seek Hevesi's ouster', says The New York Times.
Also in the Times, a portrait of Steny Hoyer, the new House Majority Leader.
The Albany Times-Union describes 'a bid to lock up' that 911 report re: John Sweeney, wifebeater. Isn't that what's commonly referred to as a coverup?
Via AmericaBlog comes this from Bob Dornan: "I can't stand the thought of my party having as its three front-runners three open adulterers, Newt Gingrich, Giuliani, and McCain." Wifebeating and page groping too, Bob.
Charles Krauthammer in The Washington Post figures out what the problem in Iraq is: it's the Iraqis. They're just too distracted by that looting and killing stuff to see the upside thereof, it seems. Neocon self-delusions continue undisturbed by facts or any sense of, say, their responsibility.
USA Today: Iraq is set to surpass the expense of World War Two; it has already taken more time, so that's fitting. It's already been more expensive than Korea and more expensive than Vietnam.
