What'd I do today? Well, I interviewed Bruce Ackerman on campaign-finance law, noted the many similarities between Barack Obama and Elena Kagan, and wondered how a politically involved individual could work in the White House and on the Hill without telling anyone what she really thought about matters.
Here's what I didn't get to:
1) Matt's mostly right about this; I was being flip. That said, there is a give-and-take in journalism where you develop a sort of friendship with your sources and you use that to push them to tell you more and they use that to push you on what you say. It's good for getting information and dangerously corrupting.
2) I'm amused to see John McCain's spokesperson complaining that people have been talking about how McCain has changed since he, well, changed.
3) Google and Verizon working on an iPad competitor?
4) Casey Mulligan needs to stop digging on this housing bubble thing.
Recipe of the day: Vegetarian French onion soup (hint: use miso).
Speaking of recipes, Annie Lowrey gave me a sous vide machine in celebration of the day of my birth. Anyone got tips, recipes or really anything to help me out?
