So the Daily Polichicks isn't exacly daily, but here's the latest scoop for Friday.

Campaign '08:

Si se puede! Gov. Bill Richardson of New Mexico, who dropped out of the presidential race earlier this year and is the nation's only Latino governor, has endorsed Barack Obama for prez. "I believe [Barack Obama] is the kind of once-in-a-lifetime leader that can bring our nation together and restore America's moral leadership in the world," Gov. Richardson said in a statement. [The New York Times]

U.S. News:

Willie Green served 25 years for a murder that he didn't commit.  Upon his release, he sobbed, touched a cell phone for the first time, and was fascinated to see a small handheld device open a car door from a distance. "The system that put me in here was the same system that got me out," he said. "It's not perfect, but it's the best system in the world." Now that's patriotism. [The Los Angeles Times]

How do you rip off baristas?! If it weren't for them, we'd all sleep through the work day and American productivity would be way down.  Starbucks has been ordered to pay over $100 million in back tips that the company swiped from innocent baristas and gave to evil management. Scrooge must totally be running that joint. [The Los Angeles Times]

The world would be more perfect if every jam were a free jam.  So Apple just might let us download all the songs our little hearts desire totally for free. [CNN]

Verizon and AT&T Wireless won extra airwaves and licenses eBay style. The two telecommunications giants were the top bidders in a government auction. [AP]

World News:

U.S. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has the Dalai Lama's back, and she doesn't appreciate China's attempts to dis him and his Tibetan peeps. "As a freedom-loving people, if we don't speak out about the Chinese oppression, then we have lost our right to speak on human rights," Pelosi said. [CNN]

Cocktails for the Obama campaign!

Iowa isn't exactly on the east side, but Barack Obama is movin' on up in favor among Democrats there. A new Washington Post-ABC News poll shows that 30% of likely Democratic caucus goers in Iowa support Obama for president over rivals Hillary Clinton (26%), John Edwards (22%) and Bill Richardson (11%).  

A four point lead ain't exactly a landslide, but it's still a good reason for some celebratory drinktime (or at least a few minutes of internet shoptime).  Click here to get the party started!

Have the girls over for cocktails and catch the Democratic debate together.  Tonight, CNN and the Nevada Democratic Party will host the 5th of 6 primary debates endorsed by the DNC.  The catfight will air at 8 EST/5 PST.

Predictions:  Edwards will agressively attack Clinton.  Obama will attack her too, but he'll try to act all "innocent" about it.  Richardson won't attack Clinton, because he's really running for veep or a cabinet position at this point.  He'll suck up to her defend her just like he did in the last debate.  Clinton will hold her own.  She's a bad mamma jamma.
