It's the 300th episode of the It's All Politics podcast, and we hear from not only NPR's Ron Elving and Ken Rudin, but from The Listener, as well.

Plus: one anti-Obama group wavers on hearing more from the Rev. Jeremiah Wright, Nebraska Republicans decide they've heard enough political mudslinging, and Americans Elect fails to find a candidate it can promote.
