Romney and Obama spar on jobs – Brown hires W and Palin speechwriters – Paul Ware says some big shots are going down in probation probe

THE CAMPAIGN: Still virtually tied in polls, Obama and Romney get charged up over the president’s record, medicare and, of course, jobs.

CERTAINLY THE HARDEST WORKING: The headline is “Sen. Scott Brown hires ex-speechwriters for Sarah Palin and George W. Bush.” These writers are either the absolute best or absolute worst in the business. There’s no in-between.

PROBES: Paul Ware thinks some big shots are going down and going down hard in the probation scandal.
