Well, it should be an interesting evening. I’ll try to give my impressions of Obama’s speech and the reaction first thing tomorrow, and may engage in the Twitter fun tonight (@ed_kilgore, if you aren’t already following along). And then there will be the election returns from New York and Colorado.
But here are the remains of this day:
* Politico‘s Epstein and Raju guess Obama will ask for further delay in the Senate vote on a use-of-force resolution. Yeah, I would think so.
* Cantor reportedly tells House Republicans Boehner will demand one-year delay in Obamacare implementation in exchange for debt limit increase. Since Obama has repeatedly sworn not to bargain on debt limit, this is a problem.
* Systematic NSA violations of privacy via collection of phone records spanned period from 2006 to 2009.
* At Ten Miles Square, Mark Kleiman presents his testimony to the Senate Judiciary Committee on how the feds should deal with state-legalized cannabis.
* At College Guide, Daniel Luzer notes for-profit colleges entering Caribbean med school market.
And in non-political news:
* Dina Eastwood files for legal separation from Clint.
That’s it until the early AM. Here’s Nirvana again performing “Lithium.”
