More

Today, we learned that Organizing for America hopes to rally support for Sotomayor; GOP insiders say it's a bad idea to oppose her; Sen. Chris Dodd's first 2010 reelection ad features footage of President Obama congratulating him on the credit card bill; Obama is outpacing Clinton and both Bushes in approval; young conservatives attempted rap; cookies may have yielded crucial intelligence; and Democrats see an upside to attacks on Sotomayor.

John Cornyn's pragmatism; and what happened in '08 and how things are lining up for 2010.
