Partial Recall — He might be known for his muscle-bound physique, but Arnold Schwarzenegger’s memoir is a little weak. It apparently glosses over most of the good stuff, though there’s a revealing look at how Karl Rove used Condi Rice to help get Ah-nold to run for governor.

Go time — The Fix declares this week to be the most important of the campaign, then runs down the scenarios for how it could all go down.

Whither the congressman? — Rep. Jesse Jackson Jr.’s name is on the ballot, but his disappearance from public view has some folks impatient to know whether he’s really in or out.
