It's been a busy day. A few highlights:
In Congress today, Bill Sali helped defeat a bill designed to help rural communities and schools. Idaho would've been one of the bill's biggest beneficiaries. Sali challenger Walt Minnick has more, as does the Washington Post.
From the Huffington Post, Idaho and the 2006 Larry Grant campaign get huzzahs from the Barack Obama campaign, as Exhibit A of how Democrats can compete here. Ah, it sure is nice for the '06 Grant campaign to get a little respect. (Disclosure: As most of you know, I was its campaign blogger and netroots outreach person.) Also, Hillary Clinton (who plans to endorse Obama on Saturday) has distanced herself from efforts to promote her as the VP nominee.
