Important to the New York Times Political Scene: 49 Terms

Those terms below (49 of them) will be familiar to many of you. Readers of the New York Times will know them as today's "Popular Tags." What becomes a curious question is why are these the ones, and, of deeper interest to me at the moment, why the missing ones missing?

Apparently, these are newsworthy terms, and those who are left off, aren't. Logical? Of course.

Granted, the list must be finite. Still, where's Newt Gingrich, scandal-monger of the moment? Why are Mark Foley and John Kerry still being talked about? And Dennis Hastert? Isn't he old news, now that Nancy Pelosi is now strong-arming the House as Speaker? Why is Illinois missing. Hastert and Obama, both on the list, are Illinoisans, and Hillary Clinton was born there.

Click them to go to stories with the corresponding tag (you're it!).
