The Main Event
Obviously the main event in the political world right now is the special election in Mass. It's just unbelievable that the American political climate is so unfriendly to Democrats that an unknown GOPer might beat the Dem. Coakley's numbers seem to be collapsing to the absolute die-hard yellow dog vote up in the Bay State, but when that's like 40% of the vote...crazier things have happened. Models and polling are pretty rough guesses right now.
Nate Silver is the person to read on this score. While Nate isn't really the best person to read farther away from an election when qualitative analysis is more important than quantitative, 538 is definitely required reading today.
