Byron York - How Obama could lose Arizona immigration battle
The drafters of the law knew the lawsuit was coming; a lawsuit is always coming when a state tries to enforce the nation's immigration laws. What the drafters didn't expect was Obama's aggressive and personal role in trying to undermine the new measure.
"You can imagine, if you are a Hispanic American in Arizona ..." the president said Tuesday at a campaign-style appearance in Iowa, "suddenly, if you don't have your papers and you took your kid out to get ice cream, you're going to be harassed."

Julie Mason - Bill Clinton has no shortage of time or opinions

In irregular rotation, the former president can be found: below the radar, on international rescue, or prominently off-message. Lately, it's a bit of the latter.
"I am not sure they violated the law," Clinton said earlier this week of Goldman Sachs, the investment bank being sued for fraud by the Securities and Exchange Commission.

J.P. Freire - Obama made $5m in 2009 and tells us we've made enough?
This comes on top of the other millions of dollars Obama received in previous years. The fact that Obama has been in the public spotlight as a politician has undoubtedly had an impact on the royalties of his two books as well. Go ahead and compare Obama’s 2009 income with other presidents here.

Susan Ferrechio - Bitter breakup between Crist and GOP in Fla. Senate race
The move could save his political career. As a Republican, Crist was trailing his more conservative opponent, Marco Rubio, by 20 points in the party's primary but runs much closer in polls with a third-party candidate in November.

Byron York - On AZ immigration, Gerson responds to me; I respond to him
Gerson’s big point is that when people like me “fail to comprehend” that being asked for a driver’s license is more burdensome in some circumstances than in others, it “reveals a fundamental lack of empathy.” But here’s the thing. If you are doing something illegal, then mundane interactions with the police are always a potential problem. Just look at the amazing variety of wrongdoing police discover as a result of routine traffic stops. When cops stop somebody with an expired tag, they aren’t necessarily looking for guns or meth or a guy wanted for skipping out on his debts. But that’s what they sometimes find.
