    John King Wary of ‘Superdelegates,’ Anderson Cooper’s GunsEarlier this afternoon we cornered CNN anchor John King, who’d just finished with a CNN/Time live-panel discussion in the Time Warner Center, and discussed the irony of the Democratic-nomination system, in which delegates in each state primary and caucus are awarded proportionally, instead of a winner-take-all system. “Look, it’s a political party; they have the right to write their own rules,” said King, who used to sit in on DNC meetings as an AP reporter back in the day. “But one of the interesting things about it, if it keeps going on like it is, you could have a group of roughly 800 people — superdelegates — who decide who the nominee is, which you could argue is going [back] to the old smoke-filled back rooms, which is the least democratic way to do it.” This idea confused and saddened us, so we changed the subject to Anderson Cooper’s ostentatious biceps. “I give Anderson an enormous amount of credit, knowing what this business does to you, especially in a crazy year like this,” King said, possibly relieved someone had given him the chance to speak on the subject. “I’m giving myself a C-plus, at best, in getting to the gym and being more healthy, and the fact that Anderson can get an A throughout all this is a tribute to dedication and time-schedule discipline,” he said — quickly adding, “and I curse him for it.” —Dan Amira

    ‘Time’: Billy Graham Thinks Hillary Is Hot and HolyBilly Graham thinks Hillary Clinton is “spiritual” and “warm,” according to a new book by two Time reporters excerpted in the new issue. Warm? We know Graham is famous for his faith — but that’s a leap we’re not sure we’re ready to make. In “The Preacher and the Presidents,” Nancy Gibbs and Michael Duffy quote Graham as saying, “I think a lot of Hillary … She is different from the Hillary you see in the media.” Clinton, in turn, says that she came to Graham when she was struggling with forgiving her husband after the Monica Lewinksy affair. The support of a man who’s counseled every president since Truman is an interesting development for our hometown senator, who needs some religious-voter cred. But we couldn’t help notice (well, at least after FishbowlNY pointed it out to us), that Time managed to put horns on the good reverend’s head. Silly magazine, he isn’t Jewish!

[WNBC] • Shelly Silver still won’t agree to bring the Assembly to the table for congestion-pricing talks — even as the desperate Mayor Bloomberg says he’ll fly to Albany tomorrow. By now, we’re just looking forward to Monday, when this mess will be over. [NYDN] • And, starting today, the MTA adds a “Mets express” to its 7 line: a one-stop service from midtown to Shea. It’s just for an hour on game days, but funny thing: If they did it year-round, Willets Point might actually be habitable. [amNY]

    ‘Time’ Mag: Murdoch Promises to Break His Promises So it’s been, what, two or three weeks now of tense negotiations over the future of Dow Jones. Of hand-wringing over what News Corp. might do to the company. Of Bancroftian efforts to retain some control of their company, even if they sell it. Of concerns that any promises Murdoch makes about editorial independence will be totally abrogated. Of Murdoch’s assurances that really, honestly, genuinely he’ll be respectful of the paper, just like he’s been of the Times in London. And then the new Time magazine comes out, with ol’ Rupe on the cover and this opening paragraph: “They’re taking five billion dollars out of me and want to keep control,” Rupert Murdoch was saying into the phone, “in an industry in crisis! They can’t sell their company and still control it — that’s not how it works. I’m sorry!” You have to respect the old Aussie, really. How many people have the balls to admit they’ll break their promises before the promise is even agreed to? Exclusive: Rupert Murdoch Speaks [Time]

    ‘Time’ Magazine, and Al Gore’s Relaxed RearThe new Time Magazine — now out on Fridays! — has a cover hagio-profile of Al Gore. It’s full of good detail on what Gore’s up to these days, just how popular he seems to have become, and whether he’ll maybe maybe maybe run for president. But the key quote has got to be this one: Al and Tipper Gore’s home, a 1915 antebellum-style mansion in the wealthy Belle Meade section of Nashville, is laid out a bit like Gore himself: a gracious and formal Southern façade; slightly stuffy rooms when you walk in the door; and startlingly modern, relaxed, informal living spaces to the rear. We think it’s also saying he’s got a fat ass. The Last Temptation of Al Gore [Time.com]

    By Dogsled or HMS Beagle, Celebs Prepare for ‘Time’ 100The Time 100 dinner, to be held tomorrow night at Jazz at Lincoln Center in celebration of the magazine’s annual “Most Influential People in the World” issue, is a hot ticket, an exclusive and glittering black-tie affair. And it seems the influential people will go to great lengths not to miss it. Virgin mogul Richard Branson, on the list this year, is currently on a 325-mile dogsled journey across Canada’s Arctic province of Nunavut to see the effects of global warming. He’s rushing to reach his endpoint — the delightfully named Igloolik — by Tuesday morning so he can be whisked to New York to make the dinner that night. “Will get the husky dogs to work a little bit harder!” he e-mailed.
