It would seem the President has had a change of heart about Super PACS. . .

Rick Santorum and today’s caucuses are getting a lot of attention, as pundits are suggesting that he could have a good day at the polls. HuffPost and The Beast are watching the horse race. . . 

Meanwhile, Salon says all the scrapping by Republicans is benefiting the President . . . Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) isn’t enthused with Mitt Romney’s idea of making it so hard for undocumented residents to find a job that they leave. Mario Wire reports on the senator’s comments. . .  

In a merger of sports and politics, Clint Eastwood’s “Half-time in America” Super Bowl commercial struck a nerve with Karl Rove . . . Meanwhile, the movie icon isn’t claiming any political allegiance. . . 

And, the commercial out of Michigan from a U.S. Senate hopeful also continues to draw heat. 

In other news . . . 

The Beast is following the sex abuse story at the elementary school in Los Angeles.

Rancor over Roland Martin’s tweet about David Beckham’s underwear commercial hasn’t faded. HuffPost reports on his apology . . . . The Root offers commentary.

Another point of view . . . 

The Grio has Beyoncé showing off her curves . . .and questions Nicki Minaj’s standard of beauty. . . On a serious note, it’s Black HIV/AIDS Awareness Day, and the site considers what’s needed to end the epidemic among blacks. Loop21 has some names it wants to add to black history . . . and a few it would like to forget.

The Root wonders if blacks are truly harder on gays and lesbians than other races.

Finally, Mario Wire reports that 60 percent of new jobs filled last year went to Latinos.
