* David Sanger on the latest with Iran and/but the latest is going to sound familiar: the prospects of bombing or cyberwarring away the Iranian nuclear program are not good and/but neither is negotiating away the program and/but the ball is in Iran’s court for the “moderates” to decide to save the economy by doing a real deal with the support of the middle class. This is like watching an Asghar Farhadi film for the seventieth time, if you know what I mean.
* A very engaging Sidney Powell profile in the Washington Post; come for the facts, stay for the on-the-record quotes.
* This paragraph from a Washington Post story could end up being the most important thing you read today – or could end up having as much meaning as “Covfefe Casserole.”
Some preliminary discussions are underway among alumni of former Senate majority leader Harry M. Reid about forming a new vehicle that would nudge the party leftward but also encourage liberals to be more strategic in the targets they are aiming at, according to people with knowledge of the conversations who spoke on the condition of anonymity to be candid.
* Sunday, if you see a super long major newspaper story that is not listed here, pro tip: you can skip it. I read ‘em, trust me.

Go enjoy your final Sunday in a November like no other, in a year like no other, during a presidency like no other.
