.How many of the people Mexico "sent" have helped build @realDonaldTrump's buildings or work in his hotels & restaurants or sell his ties?

Don't know if Christie can revive himself in NH. But his focus there, and Kasich's pending entry, could clutter Bush path in must-win state.Sorry the AP didn't ask. As I have said before, I knew HRC had private email. I did not know she used it exclusively or had her own server.

Straight shooter is a tough bridge for Christie to cross after GW debacle. And NJ economy is tough cross to bear.

.Fun to read current conventional wisdom that @POTUS is "reborn." Same conventional wisdom declared admin dead just 8 mos ago. Lesson here?.Has @POTUS been treated differently than other presidents? Interesting observations from @smerconish http://t.co/YrSe1L8hiP

No one else could have done what Pres. Obama did in Charleston today, lifting an entire nation in grace. A moment etched in history.
Retweeted by David AxelrodWe so often get mired in petty calculus of politics. Then there are transcendent moments like this. Remarkable eulogy. Extraordinary day!By shifting right on immigration reform and same sex marriage, Walker is running hard to win the Iowa caucuses and lose the election.Telling rift among GOPers over marriage ruling--Bush, Graham on one side, while others pander to social cons; brooking broad public opinion.Dr. King said, "The arc of the moral universe is long, but it bends towards justice." It is awesome to watch that arc bend!This was the 1st article I read this AM and now I'm done reading for the day. http://t.co/RmNRp0mFcr

We will hear grousing from GOP candidates for the next 9 mos. But once primaries are settled, expect nominee to say it's time to move on.To his everlasting credit, and the credit of the critical institution he leads, the Chief Justice played it straight in today's ruling.GOPers rail against ruling, but privately are relieved. If court had struck subsidies down, Rs would have been the dogs that caught the car.Indeed! Tearing up again, Messina. https://t.co/2qT1vcV7s5Legacy issues are for another day. SCOTUS ruling is a huge victory for millions of Americans whose health care was at risk.

That noise you hear right now is the NRA communications machine, whirring into the customary fire drill to beat back any gun safety laws.A kid is arrested on drugs charges and barred from a mall for suspicious behavior. Yet he is allowed to buy a gun. And he kills. #madnessIronic that the demented shooter in Charleston aimed to create a "civil war," but instead unified that city & our entire country in grief.

If I'm a GOP candidate, I'm thinking through how to handle @realDonaldTrump in upcoming debates: Confront him, or treat him as a sideshow?.Ran into Rocky Wirtz, owner of @NHLBlackhawks @NBC Tower, making the rounds with Lord Stanley's Cup. #chicagopride http://t.co/T5GMPtnn84.Happy for @warriors and @stevekerr, a champion as player & coach. But hats off to @KingJames, who was absolutely heroic in defeat.

.@jonfavs @danpfeiffer You should have toupee for THAT!.@danpfeiffer @jonfavs Didn't want to play the Trump card. It was too easy. So I did the Donald duck.The real challenge for Trump is going to be whether he can break out of this very nuanced wonk talk and throw some punches, make headlines.
Retweeted by David AxelrodIt's apparently open mike day in the Republican campaign for president.Lots of folks mocking @realDonaldTrump right now, but remember… he currently makes the cut for 1st GOP debate in less than 2 months.

Beau Biden was a throughly admirable man. Great husband, father, son, veteran and public servant. My heart aches for the Biden family.@BillKristol Troublemaker!@chrislhayes I agree.Is Hastert being indicted for crime with which he's charged? Or is this a back door way of punishing him for things that happened long ago?Bernie Sanders isn't going to be POTUS. But he has something prized & rare in politics-authenticity-which will earn him a following in '16.The Insecure American, via @nytimes.--thoughtful and important piece. http://t.co/0JVHa4YObP15 Writers and their typewriters.
