— At the Daly Briefing, our intrepid correspondent from the war zone shares a meal (standing up, because that's how they do it over there) with some Iraqi friends.

— The Shelbinator makes the case for Joe Biden as Obama's vice-presidential running mate.

—  Sara rediscovers her inner chef at Going Through The Motions. But why didn't she invite us to the meal?
