Obama speaks to his staff and volunteers. I especially liked this part (roughly quoting): "We don't have an option now. You know in the beginning of this thing, if I had lost Iowa, it would have been over. One of the other candidates would have emerged and they would carry the banner and we would have all gone to work for their campaign, and we would have moved forward and the country would move in a better direction. But because we won, we now have no choice. We have to win. WE HAVE TO WIN."

Yglesias on who Clinton supporters should vote for:

I think Michael Goldfarb very adequately spells out the case for disappointed Hillary Clinton supporters to join him in lining up behind John McCain -- if what you liked about Clinton was her support for the Iraq War and the Kyl-Lieberman resolution, McCain may be your man.

But if, like most Clinton supporters I'm aware of, you liked her work on expanding access to health care and building a more generally equitable United States of America, then it seems to me you're going to want to vote for Obama.

Michele Obama's "fashion strategy," in which we learn:
Michelle Obama apparently pulls off the feat of getting dressed on her own.

This article
about McCain's first wife is not very flattering of him:

Ted Sampley, who fought with US Special Forces in Vietnam and is now a leading campaigner for veterans' rights, said: 'I have been following John McCain's career for nearly 20 years. I know him personally. There is something wrong with this guy and let me tell you what it is – deceit.

'When he came home and saw that Carol was not the beauty he left behind, he started running around on her almost right away. Everybody around him knew it.

'Eventually he met Cindy and she was young and beautiful and very wealthy. At that point McCain just dumped Carol for something he thought was better.

'This is a guy who makes such a big deal about his character. He has no character. He is a fake. If there was any character in that first marriage, it all belonged to Carol.'
