Opening Act: Blago

My report from yesterday's big meet between Republican candidates and Republican Jews is here. Left on the cutting room flor: Newt wants new Congress to pass Obamacare/Dodd Frank repeal before 1/20/13, "so I can sign it at the inaugural."

Bob Livingston, who almost became speaker because of Gingrich's problems, says Gingrich has grown out of office.


The Washington Times has a revealing interview with Mitt Romney.

Blago goes to jail.
