Today in framing

Well, duh. It's not "sucking up" if your own reporter does it! Here's the top of Friday's No. 2 story:

Governors come and governors go, but Rick Perry is leaving a mark on Texas that won't soon be forgotten.

With the new year, Texas' longest-serving governor will leave the office he's held for more than three consecutive terms. Handing the reins to Attorney General Greg Abbott, his transition marks the end of an era in Texas politics.

And yet, Perry doesn't sound like a man hanging up his spurs.

And Saturday's:

High-profile Democrats are jumping on the “Ready for Hillary” bandwagon, supporting Clinton for president before she even enters the race -- boosting her presumptive candidacy and potentially their own political fortunes.

Sens. Tim Kaine, D-Va., and Al Franken, D-Minn., are among the biggest names to get on board -- positioning themselves in a familiar game in which early supporters are often rewarded with plum administration jobs or some political favor if their candidate wins.

“It’s a time-honored tradition,” said Joe Trippi, a Democratic strategist and Fox News contributor. “And a lot of candidates remember who was there early, who was willing to take the leap.”

(And, yes, prisoners are still being executed in the War on Editing: Franken, whose politics appear closer to those of Warren’s, said she is also “great” but “not running.”)
