Sen. Barack Obama’s Middle East trip continues to dominate this week’s political news.  Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki gave Obama’s campaign a boost when he old a German news magazine that he supported Obama’s timetable for withdrawing American troops.  Obama also met with al-Maliki and conceded that there has been ’security progress’ in Iraq.

With all the news coming out of Obama’s trip, news organizations had plenty of information to prioritize, and they all went in different directions.
