Do Presidential Politics bring out the best in commentators? Dig this groovy Gail Collins take on Hilary's problems with Gen Y (and parochially, nice little tribute to Ed Brooke). Memo to the Clintons: why not bring back "a more immediate, ecstatic and penetrating mode of living" as a campaign slogan? It certainly beats the very Republican-esque 'Big Challenges, Real Solutions" for attention getting.
Todd Gitlin gives 1968 the Full Mandarin! Speaking of which, today is the 40th anniversary of the start of Prague Spring ... wonder if that will make it into this weekend's debates?
My favorite political grownup, Michael Barone, as usual sees things that others don't.
Great roundups at Football Outsiders on what could be 2 wonderful Wild Card games tonight.
Steelers-Jags looks very 1970s, even and hard-hitting grindout, probable Jacksonville edge in run-stopping - unless it comes down to a field goal! The Redskins can certainly pull an upset in Seattle - provided they can drown out the crowd noise - this is the local interest game.
