I had to get to Copenhagen:

— Roudup of problems with the Ryan Ripoff.

— Lamar Alexander really hates unions, really loves FedEx.

— John Roberts doesn’t like to be criticized.

— I think this is bad counterfactual reasoning, and any of Kerry, Gephardt, Edwards, and Dean would have made okay presidents.

— Sovereign debt, a historical overview.

— I think a primary challenge to Bart Stupak is likely to help focus his mind on what really matters in health reform.
