No Country For Mark Penn

The Washington Post's Peter Baker and Anne Kornblut have written the most comprehensive insider account I've seen of the internal sparring inside the Clinton campaign. Unlike most articles of its kind, it does not blame one side or the other, and it manages to evince some sympathy for chief strategist Mark Penn.

Big takeaways:

**No one inside the campaign likes Mr. Penn. He does not seem to care.
**Clinton White House aide Bruce Reed was responsible for the "Change you can Xerox" line.
**There were plenty of Clinton aides (Guy Cecil, Harold Ickes) who warned against ceding the caucuses, but the Clintons themselves were too burned by Iowa
