WASHINGTON -- It's a slow week in the nation's capital, save for the Scripps National Spelling Bee. So today's top reads venture a bit farther afield than usual.
FIrst off, The New York Times takes a fresh look at the Barack Obama-Chris Christie bromance.
Meanwhile, The Hill delves deep into an important issue that's receiving little attention elsewhere: the importance of President Obama's pending nominations to a top appeals court.
And Politico, in an incredibly fast turn-around, looks at the spectacular fall of Rep. Michele Bachmann only hours after the Minnesota Republican announced she will not run for re-election.
