"Mark Pincus and Reid Hoffman are launching a new group to rethink the Democratic Party: It's called Win the Future, and Pincus is even courting potential WTF candidates like the frontman of '90s rock band Third Eye Blind," by Recode's Tony Romm:

  • "Pincus, the co-founder of Zynga, and Hoffman, the brains behind LinkedIn, want to force Democrats to rewire their philosophical core, from their agenda to the way they choose candidates."
  • "WTF for short ... aims to be a new movement and force within the Democratic Party, which can act like its own virtual party," said Pincus, its lead architect."
  • "Its new website will put political topics up for a vote — and the most resonant ideas will form the basis of the organization's orthodoxy."

Bob Woodward didn't want to join Senate Republicans in privately condemning President Trump but declining to do so publicly, he told Jonathan Swan in an interview for "Axios on HBO."

Why it matters: Woodward has covered 9 presidents, but Trump is the first that Woodward explicitly described as "the wrong man for the job."
