seems to be one of the few American media organizations that is actually growing. The Beltway website and newspaper now puts out a glossy magazine a few times a year, and the latest edition focuses on its "Top 50 Politicos to Watch." But it's not as much a congratulatory honor as it is recommended viewing if you like your politics as soap operas. Politico says the honorees are "characters in motion, in the middle of interesting plots."
"Alex Sink is widely viewed as the Democrats' best hope to win back the Florida governorship, an office that has eluded the party since 1994. And if she defeats Republican Attorney General Bill McCollum in 2010, you can bet that her status as a female Democratic megastate governor will immediately catapult her into the national political spotlight."
