Politics at play
Let's file this one in that burgeoning category called "Should Have Been An Onion Headline," shall we? WaPo's Elahe Izadi tells the harrowing tale of a nation distracted by president’s tan suit (7,115 shares). NPR's Robin Young tweets, "before we get down to serious stuff, best headline ever: 'The Audacity of Taupe.'" At the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, Joel Currier wonders, "Would anyone have noticed if Obama had declared WWIII today?"
Also at the Post, Ben Terris points out, "He’s already a famous surgeon and author, so why is Ben Carson toying with a longshot presidential bid?" (1,534 shares). "Much like Santorum in 2010-2011, Ben Carson is slowly but surely building an under the radar, so-con Iowa campaign," colleague Robert Costa predicts.
Meanwhile, Obama suggests he'll need more time on immigration policy, Kathleen Hennessey, Lisa Mascaro and Christi Parsons jointly report from the LA Times (195 shares). At the DC bureau, Amy Fiscus tweets, "Scoop! White House considering 2-part immigration move, in part to calm Dems."
