NEWS SUMMARY

To paraphrase Gov.-elect Haley Barbour (again), The Note was born at night, but it wasn't LAST night.

We have been around the block a time or two (and, by that, we mean the block around the downtown Des Moines Marriott between Grand and Locust, with all those confusing one-way streets), and we have picked up a sense of what matters politically.

So, without further ado, Happy Birthday, Howard Dean, and here's what we believe, so, trusting Note readers, you should believe all this too:

If President Bush signs Medicare and energy bills, "they haven't led, we will" is going to look much, much better next November, and Karl Rove knows that.
