And then Libby Copeland’s great English 145 profile of RBC.@substockman I read the Biden parts of it in 2008. And I think I may have read bits w PH in college… But never in its entirety.Suggestion for a college writing or politics seminar: Just teach “What It Takes,” for the entire semester.Another must-read on money in politics by @nickconfessore: (which internal metrics tell me you did), my look at LIBRE, the Koch Brothers Hispanic outreach:

(1/2)Jeb in Bloomberg interview, on Syrian refugees: "If there is any kind of concern, we should not let people in."Well, duh…That clearly conveys…STRENGTH.
