This final note, in which we revisit the top news of the day on the way out: Paul Ryan and his new job.

Predicting the results of elections three months in advance can be a fool’s errand, of course. But I’m gonna go out on a limb here and say that at least one congressional district that went for then-Sen. Obama in 2008 will flip this time ’round.

The president won Paul Ryan’s district, the Wisconsin 1st, 51-49.

Not gonna happen again.
