Well sometimes anyway. That news, and previews of Obama's speech later today dominate the front pages. Our friend John Edwards also gets a look in, as do those pesky Republican kids who got arrested yesterday.
The generalized anger at Obama is also spilling out at Tim Geithner, according to a couple of stories today. The Daily News got a look at John Edwards' aide Andrew Young's book, and lead with the revelations, and the Washington Post have another excellent exclusive on the US role in fighting militants in Yemen.
- The New York Times examine the potential sale of St. Vincent's hospital.
- The LA Times have a look at another way in which Botox can kill.
- And the Wall Street Journalcall the economic recovery a 'bullwhip' — as in we're about to get hit again.
Disclosure: I freelance write and report for newspapers that are included in this roundup. Where there is a direct conflict of interest I will make it clear.
