I'm full of news these days  
Joel Achenbach predicts New Hampshire and Iowa. Joe Klein reports on the candidates' final stumping.

Q&A: 'Why Iowa? And what's a caucus, anyway?' Added bonus: why a caucus is a bad idea.

THURSDAY NEWS:
* Eyewitness reports from on the ground in Nairobi.
* Joe Klein with a tale of two Romneys. Ouch.
* Representative Lantos will not run for re-election.
* "It's easy to reduce all of what is wrong with American journalism to the near industrywide ban on booze in the newsroom. So I will."
* "He's the rock star of ramen."
* Casting: naming Storm Shadow for G.I.Joe, and an, uh, interesting choice for Star Trek.
* Author of the 'Flashman' series George MacDonald Fraser passed away.
* David Letterman presents the top ten demands of the striking writers.

Euphemism of the day, considering it's about Huckabee's campaign manager:

He may have made a fatal error in hiring Ed Rollins, not just because Rollins is a pugilist, but because Rollins has an uncontrollable compulsion to tell reporters how the sausage is made.

(I'm imagining air quotes around "sausage".)

"Chatman became the 15th inmate from Dallas County since 2001 to be freed by DNA testing. That is more than any other county nationwide."
