In Brief - July 20th, 2006

Here is today's quick news digest:
  • First, great news: according to a new Quinnipiac poll, Ned Lamont has surged ahead of DINO Joe Lieberman and now holds a razor-thin 51% to 47% lead among likely Democratic primary voters. The Political Wire has more.
  • John Edwards records a lively bookcast with Jimmy Carter.
  • Disappointing news in the fight against WalMart - a judge has struck down a Maryland law which would have forced the irreponsible retail giant to actually give its workers decent health care.
  • The P-I's Art Thiel has the best perspective on the sale of the Seattle SuperSonics to a group of Oklahoma investors that we've seen thus far.
  • Neil Modie reports on the Washington State Trial Lawyers Association Supreme Court candidate forum held yesterday, where the BIAW's effort to buy themselves two new spots on the court was the major issue on everyone's minds.
