The Obama campaign has two powerful targets in Bush and Cheney, but it concentrates its firepower largely on one. To ignore Cheney is to ignore his enormous significance.
"Great-great-grandma Frances will set you straight. By the time I'm done with you, you'll vote for who you want to vote for. You won't let anybody scare you out of it. That's the lesson of Al Smith."
Casting elections as "deals" and "sales" speaks encyclopedias about how Rove and too many others think about the connection between voters and candidates.
The common theme seems to be that in both campaigns there is sometimes a disconnect between the candidates' personal campaigning versus what their campaign organizations are saying.
How many of you have gotten a credible death threat?
I have. In fact, I get them all the time, via email, text message, telephone. As one of the very...
It is better to lose a presidential campaign than to lose your honor, integrity, dignity, pride and reputation. It's truly an amazing concept, I know, to use these words when talking about a campaign in this post-Rove world.
Instead of campaigning, McCain seems now to be traveling the country trying to make sure that no movie version of President Obama's life will ever win an Oscar.
Going dirty without the underlying basis to win means going down in history as a dirty loser.
McCain has a running mate that does not seem to know boundaries. She will go where others won't. Who needs a swiftboating 527 with this VP?
John McCain may, as he often claims, know how to win a war, but he doesn't seem to understand how to win an election.
Voters in swing states -- and this, Colorado, appears to be the mother of all swing states -- are treated to a nearly endless barrage of political advertising and discussion.
Obama has learned all the wrong lessons from the swift boat debacle. Kerry got spanked in 2004 because he has the personality of the thimble.
If Palin won't repent for us and won't repent for America, I hope she'll at least remember Lee Atwater's dying remorse and restrain herself for her own sake.
We're in for a barrage of depressing negative campaigning from a Republican machine that has run out of much else to say or do.
Obama and Biden keep telling you how much they like McCain, how honorable he is and how they never question his patriotism. Meanwhile, McCain is running ads saying Obama wants to sex up your kids.
I was in a doctor's waiting room recently, listening to pundits on a big-screen TV, when a middle-aged man turned to me and stated:
"Too much spin."
It doesn't bother her that the campaign might turn ugly. "This is the Armageddon of politics," she said. "It's going to be war. I want to tell Barack, 'Don't fear it, accept it.'"
If the race continues to tighten, Obama may have to select between victory and honor, black magic and white. McCain has already made his choice. Obama's moment of decision is nigh.
If Obama doesn't start attacking, he -- and the rest of us -- will be sitting around on November 5th shaking our heads wondering what the hell happened.
At a Friday night fundraiser, Barack Obama warned supporters that Republicans "are going to try to scare people. They're going to try to say that 'tha...
For months, GOP operatives spoke with dread of the prospects of running against Barack Obama in the fall. But after weeks of controversies over his fo...

The Obama campaign is planning to expand its research and rapid-response team in order to repel attacks it anticipates over his ties to 1960s radical ...
