Front Page: Iraqi Flag, Stimulus, and Super Tuesday

  • A new Iraqi flag was raised over Baghdad today. In the new design, all vestiges of Saddam Hussein's rule are gone. The green writing in the center of the flag, which reads "God is Great," is no longer in Hussein's handwriting. Likewise, the three green stars, which stood for Hussein's Baathist Party motto of unity, freedom, and socialism, have been removed. The design dates to a coup in 1963, when at the time, the stars also stood for proposed unity between Egypt, Syria, and Iraq.
  • Senate majority leader Harry Reid put pressure on Senate Republicans yesterday to consider a different version of the economic stimulus plan. The Senate version calls for $159 billion in stimulus, including additional stimulus subsidies for home energy, and would replace the original package approved by the House last week. In response, Senate Republican leader Mitch McConnell stated that he would seek to delay a vote on a permanent extension of the terrorist surveillance program Reid slated for today, when US attention is focused on the Super Tuesday primary.
  • Forty-three primaries in 24 states today make up the delegate-rich Super Tuesday. Polls in the biggest prize of the day, California, could still be open when eastern states start declaring winners. Candidates are expected to claim these victories early and often, hoping to fan momentum. With each state having different rules and voting populations, the outcomes are expected to vary wildly. Check back here as the polls close for winners and results.
