The Curse of TNR

It's hard out there for a New Republic writer. Ryan Lizza worked for months on a profile of Mark Warner, and was just about to turn it when Warner announced he wasn't running for president. Then, Michelle Cottle wrote a long profile of Evan Bayh in this week's issue of the same magazine- and right after it went to press, Bayh too bowed out of the race. Lizza retooled his into a "why Warner didn't run" postmortum, whereas Cottle's ran as is.

Expect TNR to be really, really cautious about assigning an Obama profile...
