* Bill Clinton laid out his optimistic view of the health care debate in an interview with us yesterday.

* Funniest TV commercial by a school board candidate ever can be viewed on Rock Candy. Bring salt.

* Lindsey Millar has the scoop on the Renaud brothers latest documentary, screening at a benefit here tonight. It's the inspirational "Warrior Champions: From Baghdad to Beijing,” which follows four injured Iraq War veterans working to compete in the Paralympic Games in Beijing.
