Monday's must-reads from Washington

By Jerry Zremski

WASHINGTON -- It's rare that I recommend a story about which I have grave qualms, but I'll do so today -- because my problem, really, is just with the headline of The New Republic's fascinating take on Bill Clinton's charitable foundation -- and the problems therein. The headline is wrong: the story is not about a "Scandal at Clinton Inc."  It's more about how the foundation operates -- and the intricate interpersonal politics of Clintonland.

Meanwhile, The New York Times offers us two important stories on two widely divergent topics.

First, the Times' Robert Pear -- the best Washington reporter you've never heard of -- explains why Obamacare might mean fewer health care choices.

Turning its attention to its hometown, the Times takes a close look at New York mayoral hopeful Bill de Blasio's leftist past.

Finally, because I know you are all just aching for yet another story about yet another government shutdown showdown, I'm passing along The Washington Post's detailed -- and occasionally hilarious -- preview of the fiscal debate ahead.
