1. In the New Hampshire primary, McCain rose up, Clinton teared up, and Obama's support dried up. Did the whole thing feel like good news, bad news or no news? How about John Kerry's endorsement of Obama? Good? Bad? No?

2. The Pentagon released video showing Iranian Revolutionary Guard speedboats harassing Navy warships and audio of an apparent bombing threat. Iran called those fake, and released its own video depicting a much calmer exchange, and no bomb threat. You've seen the rival videos. Is this volley good news, bad news or no news?

3. You might think this nation is divided, but according to respected pollster Frank Luntz, Republicans and Democrats report similar sex lives. Republicans first had sex at 18.4 years old; that's less than a year older than Democrats. People who would have a one night stand in the Oval Office with an attractive president: about 25 percent in either party. In fact, most people who attend church every week call themselves "sexually adventurous." Is this good news, bad news or no news?
