Why is this in the New York Times blog rather than on its front page?
It wouldn't have to do with Obama needing Jewish support. Nah. That would mean the New York Times is a partisan newspaper. Nah.
Hopefully, this will change and the Times will put it on the front page, making this post obsolete. But I am not holding my breath.
Update: With all of the other media outlets reporting the story, the Times has now made it a regular news story, rather than simply a blog post. I assume this means it makes it into the print edition, but I don't know for sure. And on what page?
