The Big Story, By Matt Taylor
A surging Newt Gingrich maintained his composure in the face of a renewed assault from Mitt Romney at the Republican presidential debate Monday night, aggressively defending Medicare in a state where the ethos of the Tea Party -- a group that is demographically dominated by older white voters who tend to support public benefits for those who they believe have earned them -- is especially powerful.

In a sprawling 90 minute discussion that touched on everything from the Terri Schiavo case to cane sugar subsidies to the threat posed by Cuba as a potential launching pad for terrorist attacks on the United States, Romney went hard after Gingrich on his tenure as Speaker, his ethics violations, and his role as a "lobbyist" for Freddie Mac. But the new frontrunner did not respond with venom, like he did during last week's triumphant march through South Carolina. Instead, he slowed down the tempo of his voice and smirked at Romney's repeated attacks. He even managed to find time to praise Rep. Ron Paul. READ MORE

Book Excerpt
In 2009, author Katherine Stewart learned that the Santa Barbara public elementary school her children attended had added a class called "The Good News Club" to its afterschool program. Sponsored by the Child Evangelism Fellowship, the Club has established 3,500 local chapters at public schools across the country and bills itself as a straightforward program of "Bible study." But Stewart soon discovered that the Club's real mission is to convert children to a fundamentalist version of Christianity and encourage them to proselytize their "unchurched" peers -- all while promoting the false impression that its activities are endorsed by the school.

Sen. Rand Paul of Kentucky, the son of Republican presidential candidate Ron Paul and a frequent critic of the Transportation Security Administration, was stopped by TSA officers at the Nashville airport Monday when he set off a metal detector and then declined to allow a security officer to pat him down. Police escorted Paul away, causing him to miss a vote in the Senate. The security scanner identified an issue with the senator's knee, although Paul said he has no screws or medical hardware around the joint. READ MORE

Featured Column: Cynthia Tucker
Despite the best efforts of some of the GOP's leading strategists, who have warned against alienating a growing ethnic group, the Republican Party seems headed in a bad direction with Latinos, championing harsh rhetoric and mean-spirited policies that will poison relations with that voting bloc for generations. Compared to Romney and the other GOP contenders, President Obama has been a champion of Latino interests. And they are likely to respond by throwing their wholehearted support to the Democratic ticket, as they did in 2008. READ MORE

Around The World
Two Iranian lawmakers on Monday escalated threats that their country will close the strategic Strait of Hormuz, through which a fifth of the world's crude petrol flows, in retaliation for oil sanctions on Tehran. The warnings came as European Union nations agreed in Brussels to impose an oil embargo as a part of sanctions against Iran's controversial nuclear program. READ MORE

War And Peace
In the Massachusetts Senate campaign, where Super PACs have already spent millions blanketing the airwaves in what promises to be a spectacular slugfest, Republican incumbent Scott Brown and Democratic consumer advocate Elizabeth Warren have agreed to give peace a chance. On Monday, they reached an unprecedented agreement to reject outside spending by third-party groups, whether they are official party organs like the Democratic National Committee or Super PACs like the Karl Rove-founded Crossroads GPS. The pact sounds nice, but nobody knows whether it will actually work -- and there's no way outside groups will stop raising money, just in case the campaign equivalent of nuclear war breaks out.
