Cathleen Falsani of the Chicago Sun-Times opens a three-part series on evangelical Christians with a look at a recent meeting in which church leaders -- "white, black and Hispanic, friends and strangers, charismatic, traditional, liberal, conservative, centrist, megachurch shepherds, rising stars, longtime vanguard pastors. Among them, they represent more than 50,000 Chicago area evangelical Christians" -- focused on changing and shaping the public perception of who they are and what they stand for. LINK

The Los Angeles Times' Scott Gold looks at a bill in the Texas legislature that would give the state ethics commission the power to put the kibosh on the prosecution of a politician -- what watchdogs are calling a baby version of House Republicans' efforts to shield Majority Leader DeLay from consequences to his post if he were indicted.

The New Hampshire state House passed a bill yesterday changing the rules of the game for Granite State voters, the Concord Monitor's Daniel Barrick reports. If it becomes law, no longer will an independent voter be able to temporarily register with a party to vote in its primary, and then cancel that registration immediately after casting a ballot. This measure would require voters to stay with the party for at least 90 days. LINK
