Best summation of the internal Obama admin Syria/Assad debate. Kerry and Powers want to stay involved v WH/NSC. Brooks makes case that Clinton's TPP flip, while helpful short term, could do long term "trust" damage. like the RGA is now taking the LAGOV race more seriously and realizes Vitter is vulnerable in a runoff. Ryan is revising Groucho Marx: "I do t want to be the leader of any club that wants me to be its leader.'

At my daughter's middle school for parent-teacher conference and I find this campaign poster for 8th grade prez I use titles or "mr" and "ms" for just about every interview. And if I don't then it is an error

Retweeted by Chuck ToddLast night, just one game between Astros-Yankees was enough. No need to see a rematch. But tonight? One game won't do Cubs-Pirates justice@RyanLizza and now every GOP candidate has her book, free of charge, thanks to the campaign's earlier stunt this week.Good grief, the architect of "the pivot to Asia" opposes TPP? In her book she praised the deal!
Retweeted by Chuck Todd@eldond @ctsotsoros I find it amusing that u view the observation as a positive. Truly bizarre@KenInSoo save your rage for someone else. I'm making an observation, period. Don't let someone else try and claim some conspiracy theoryFreedom Caucus goes with a guy who might be drawn into an unwinnable district. Might not even be in the House in '17
Retweeted by Chuck Todd@RyanKoncar @meetthepress I even had a bill belichik reference today@ctsotsoros it is called an observation.@HylianTom there have been a lot of odd variances in their party ID splits this cycle.Clinton tried consistency with Iraq vote in 2008 and that didn't turn out well. So maybe that was among lessons learned for TPP and labor@rolling_2 correct. Easier to be against. There isn't a strong organized pro-trade constituency in either party right nowCan someone state with confidence that TPP can get through this Congress? Seems like both parties have bases singing the anti-trade bluesAt this time I'm opposed to the outcome of the Redskins-Falcons game based on what I know so far but I'm also reserving judgement.
Retweeted by Chuck ToddComing out against TPP has all the trappings of Clinton trying to placate labor and keep them from endorsing SandersForeign policy analysts have called the Asia pivot, with #TPP at center, as H. Clinton's best legacy at State
Retweeted by Chuck ToddClinton stipulated multiple times she's opposing TPP based on what she knows as of now & not having read full deal

Retweeted by Chuck Todd@jeremyadavis @theskimm Read it every day!California may be the third strongest state for Sanders (at least based on polls I've seen). this is one harsh primary ad. Primary foe to GOP Rep. Ellmers (NC) "Over the top" doesn't begin to describe. done intro spot for the VP by the Draft Biden SuperPAC. Bush in Skimm today: "I’m an introvert. Introverts have a huge advantage over extroverts. We can create a mission and we can act on it."
Just 6 mins until #MTPDaily. Congress v fantasy football. Hillary v Biden. Russia v Turkey. And the POTUS cand you haven't heard of yet.Back in the hospital. Being old sucks.

Thank you @SteveKornacki for a great Monday kickoff to the MTP Daily week. Welcome to the team. See you Tuesday.@DickieV @JohnetteHoward @espnmikes many great coaches have been fired. It's what you learn from the experience that sets up the great onesIf Biden runs, he won't have a clear path to the nomination—could face a tougher road than Hillary on key issues:

@AlexDonno @560WQAM @CanesFootball don't want to hurt recruiting. So trying to cut back the whining. But. Ugh@560WQAM @AlexDonno @CanesFootball I need to hear the pain. Listening on app@AlCardenasFL_DC @Manny_Navarro @BillyCorben Miami has more players on NFL rosters than any other school. And yet? Answer is obvious@pentastich @JamilSmith I was surprised by the answer. She implied smaller departments would have hard time complying.@capitalweather @erinruberry good to know.@amychozick all about Biden@briankoppelman whether Henley or walsh solos or Eagles, I somehow know all the lyrics. And I can't explain. Not a desert island band for me@briankoppelman I have this theory that we are all born knowing the words to most Eagles songs whether we like them or notEvolution of cone #Joaquin
Retweeted by Chuck Todd@erinruberry @capitalweather this is a dumb stat for so many reasons, the biggest: they hurricane center ONLY used female names for yearsAs #UM heads to #FSU keep this in mind: Canes are 4-7 vs. ranked teams under Golden (when game is played), 0-12 vs. teams who finish ranked

What is Russia up to? Reports from across the field. And reaction from Rhodes, Powell and CorkerCFO @JeffAtwater says friends constantly asking him about US Senate. "We won’t rule that out."

@FHQ somebody has to go first and it should be a small stateBoth nomination reform plans were killed at the natl convention by nominees who won under the current system. Food for thought.

Retweeted by Chuck Todd@whitecollarstl Boehner is more likely to choke Cruz before Pelosi@DavidMDrucker so Dan Snyder is to blame for all of this? Dysfunctional patient zero?Viable argument that it's actually Redskins dysfunction has spread to govt & other sports franchises.
Retweeted by Chuck ToddWhy has the disease of Washington dysfunction infected every Washington sports franchise? Can we blame this on Congress and the WH too?One thing I'm watching in next three months: is there a large number of GOP retirements from the Boehner ally caucus11-term @RepEdWhitfield will not seek re-election. See who else is leaving Congress on our Casualty List:

Retweeted by Chuck ToddThis latest weather forecast talked about a "tropical infusion" for the N.E....
