No wonder there’s a shakeup in the Clinton campaign. There have been rumors of Solis-Doyle being on the outs ever since Maggie Williams came on board in early January, but I guess it’s official now.

Biodun wrote a great NAFTA post so I could go to the hockey game this afternoon. Capitols v. Rangers, Capitols won.
