The Asterisk on Romney’s Northeast Wins – From Yahoo! News’ Holly Bailey – The former Massachusetts governor won Delaware with 56 percent of the vote and Pennsylvania with 58 percent. According to the University of Minnesota political scientist Eric Ostermeier, that marks the first time since 1972 that a presumptive GOP nominee has failed to reach the 60 percent mark in a contest conducted after his last major challenger exited the race – http://abcn.ws/JzYVsi

Rubio Spurns Foreign Policy Disengagement – “For while there are few global problems we can solve by ourselves, there are virtually no global problems that can be solved without us. In confronting the challenges of our time, there are more nations than ever capable of contributing, but there is still only one nation that is capable of leading,” Rubio said today of the United States.

“Who will lead if we do not?” Rubio asked. “The answer, at least today, is that no other nation or organization is willing or able to do so.” http://abcn.ws/IdsxdT

What is Self Deportation? – Here’s how Kris Kobach Described it to Univision – “The concept of self-deportation in immigration is that if people are breaking the law, we as a nation or an individual state should take steps to ratchet up the level of law enforcement incrementally so that people start thinking, ‘Well, you know what? Maybe I should follow the law. It’s harder to get the job illegally. It’s harder to continue breaking the law, maybe using a false name or a false Social Security number, and I will therefore try to comply with the law in the future.’ It’s really that simple,” Kobach said.

What’s Wrong with Obama and Romney Proposal to Extend Student Loans Rates? – The Occupy perspective, according to Greg Krieg – “Whatever Washington ends up doing (or failing to do) as the interest rate deadline nears, Occupy Spokesman Ed Needham says it won’t be enough, and that the president is, in effect, ‘outlining a prescription for fixing the student debt crisis that is akin to putting a Band-aid on a tumor and telling the patient to go home.’ http://abcn.ws/IccRt5
