McCain and Obama are at polar opposites on the matter of energy; the issue of fossil / nuclear energy versus green energy could well be the uniquely different determining factor in November.
Buoyed by a public mood favoring Democrats, Sen. Barack Obama begins the general-election campaign holding a narrow advantage over Sen. John McCain, w...
When Obama exchanged a a fist bump with Michelle, he did more than prove he's hipper than most of the political class -- he also inspired an explosion of mindless explanatory news stories.
If Obama aims to win without having to carry Florida and Ohio, then Michigan and its 17 electoral votes will be critical, which explains the campaign's preference for staging big announcements there.
The media is taking a real beating today from... the media. Below are two reports.
The Wall Street Journal reports on the increased scrutiny towards...
In a northern Midwestern town, at my cousin's graduation, I got a glimpse of something remarkable, something that may signal yet more troublesome news to the already troubled regiment of McCain campaign strategists.
Democrats must now focus on accomplishing ten critical tasks that are key to winning the presidency this fall.
Simply put, this is the worst possible time for any Republican to be running for president, and Obama is the perfect candidate for Democrats, and a nightmare for McCain.
It's worth looking systematically at the major factors that gave victory to Obama -- fifteen months ago, conventional wisdom viewed him as an audacious long shot.
In Gary, Ind., the City of Steel, a worker says he's voting Democrat. "Oh yeah, I want a job next year," he says... Obama never mentions the mills. Clinton, at least she seems interested."
I made it to two of Bill Clinton's six separate town hall appearances saturday. He runs late, talks in detail, charismatically, and doesn't answer any questions from the crowd. Not a single one.
Were Hillary the great rural white savior that her campaign is depicting, she would have been able to dispatch a presidential neophyte like Barack Obama.

At polling places in Chinatown, Philadelphia, there is a serious shortage of translators. Voters are becoming frustrated with the process and leaving without casting votes.
"She's a smart woman... Hillary is the one to lead us to gain the respect we have lost in the world. If Obama gets the nomination, I'm voting Republican." Problem she said was that Obama's an elitist.
"Bitter? No, why should I be bitter? I'm an American." That's how they were feeling after the Obama rally in Harrisburg, PA, today, the week of the primary. "Not Bitter, no. I'm reinvigorated!"
A leaflet scattered about Grand Rapids, Michigan today is urging voters to "let your voice be heard"... so long as that voice isn't for Hillary Clinton.
A little more than two weeks away from this state's January 15 primary, I have yet to hear a single person mention his or her intention to vote.
