Here’s what the Loop’s reading this morning:
Wandering eye — He might be madly in love with his wife, but Rep. Dennis Kucinich (D-Ohio) is flirting up a storm lately — with Washington State. Our colleague Ed O’Keefe reports that Kucinich made another visit to check out the vibe in the district where he could run again for Congress after losing a primary race in Ohio last month for the seat he has held since 1997.
Exclusive app — Even the Oval office has gone iPad mad. Our colleague Greg Miller reports on the use of the snazzy device in President Obama’s daily briefing, or “PDB.”
Reality drama — Jury selection is beginning in the criminal trial against former senator John Edwards (D-N.C.), and despite the high drama of the day, the judge reminded jurors that this wasn’t prime time. “She also advised them to put out of their minds any media coverage they had seen and to ignore any legal dramas they might have seen on television, because such shows may mischaracterize the law or how a courtroom operates. ‘You can watch Law & Order, Judge Judy, John Grisham; put it out of your mind,’ Eagles said. ‘I will tell you what the law is.’”
Double meaning — Inadvertently funny headline of the day: “Obama: Spouses should be left alone.” We assume he wasn’t advocating spousal desertion.
