There aren’t three things to watch for in politics today — there’s really just one big thing, so watch to see what the White House does to try to rev up health care reform. The conventional wisdom is that the movement is dying as members of Congress back in their districts for recess are not hearing positive things about the effort and not seeing positive things in their poll numbers. It’s still possible this is an inside game and that the White House and congressional Democrats will ignore public opinion and will try to get health care through both houses. Watch to see if they have the spine, the political courage — or some would say stupidity — to push it through even without a flood of public support. But it is the case that the media environment and the political culture do matter and right now the administration’s initiative is being seen as dying in the August heat, so watch to see if President Obama or other major figures make attempts to revive health care reform.
So we've compared Ukraine-Russia to every conflict known to man except the Dune trilogy. Can someone please get started on that?—

The very active account anonymously curates the latest news surrounding international relations and national security, specifically regarding conflict. The feed, which rarely deviates from tweeting traditional headlines, pulls from hundreds of political, security and intelligence sources to find and tweet the nuggets its followers don’t necessarily know they need to know. The most interaction you’ll have with it is a whole lot of favorites. —Andrew Katz
