    FALLS CHURCH, Virginia -- While giving a speech endorsing Democrat Terry McAuliffe’s Virginia gubernatorial bid at a small concert and theater venue just outside Washington, D.C., former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton took several veiled shots at President Barack Obama and the way her 2008 Democratic primary opponent has run Washington since being first elected five years ago. While Clinton never mentioned Obama by name, she used innuendo and some indirect references to try to separate herself from the president ahead of what is widely expected to be another run at the White House for her in 2016. “I thought...

    It is stunning to me how many people don’t recall recent history and what happened economically during the Clinton administration. (I like to call him the ‘Toon). Like 0bummer, the ‘Toon attempted to increase taxes sharply, regulate everything and install gobberment run healthcare. Two years in the “Republican Revolution” occurred and Newt Gingrich came in with the “Contract With America”. The ‘Toon clearly saw the American people had spoken and he knew for his own political survival he would have to work with the new Congress to change things. He used a lot of Gingrich and Contract ideas and this...

    Remember how the Romans tried to discover the will of the gods by slicing up a chicken and the Vikings did it by reading stones? And Kremlinologists looked at a man’s placement on a podium overlooking Red Square? Well, the American left elite sends it’s signals via the media elite (WaPo, NYT etc) and sometimes, oddly enough, this is bounced through the UK’s BBC because, as any fule kno, there is a symbiotic relationship between the great and the good of both nations.

    John Judis and Ruy Teixeira's well-regarded 2002 work The Emerging Democratic Majority begins with a vignette set in Virginia. They tell the story of a telecom executive named Mark Warner, who runs a moderate campaign that appeals to upper-middle class suburbanites and working class rural voters, and manages to put together a winning coalition that, if imitated in other states, might put the Democrats in power for decades to come. Democrats did build coalitions similar to Warner’s, and in fact had been doing so for the better part of a decade. Warner’s coalition was essentially Bill Clinton’s 1996 coalition. The...

    Big news folks - it looks like our efforts in contacting those Superdelegates are starting to pay off, so keep on writing to them (ok, maybe Donna B's a waste of time). There are unconfirmed reports, based on phone banking efforts to reach out to Super Ds, that eight previously Obama SDs expressed that, given the opportunity, they would vote for Hillary at the convention. I heard about an interview Will Bower of PUMA did recently, where he said delegates are starting to say they'll vote for Hillary in Denver if the DNC did the right thing and ran an...

    Our spike in readership continues. Surprisingly few of us have decided to leave us for the Obama camp. We are resolved to see this through. Let us be clear what this is all about for those of you who wander in here looking for an argument. The problem is the party itself. 2008 was the year that the party abandoned its principles. It is no longer the party of FDR and shared responsibility. Now, it is the party of wannabe rich libertarian Democrats. It is the party of the Ariana Huffingtons who, dissatisfied with her own party, have decided to...

    A Clinton donor tells me that on a conference call today with major fundraisers this afternoon, Harold Ickes told them Clinton isn't planning to drop out. He pressed donors to stay unified, and reviewed tactical options, including challenging the Michigan delegation. State finance committees are also circulating letters to deliver to Clinton tomorrow in New York, and I've obtained a draft of the Illinois finance committee's letter, being circulated by a Clinton fundraising aide, Rafi Jafri, which stresses a fight until the convention, and a resolution in "August, and no earlier." We, the Illinois Finance Committee, want to show our...

    http://www.quinnipiac.edu/x2882.xml?ReleaseID=1180 A new set of polls from Quinnipiac gives some credibility to the Clinton campaign's argument that Hillary is the more electable Democrat. Florida McCain (R) 45%, Obama (D) 41% Clinton (D) 48%, McCain (R) 41% Ohio McCain (R) 44%, Obama (D) 40% Clinton (D) 48%, McCain (R) 41% Pennsylvania Obama (D) 46%, McCain (R) 40% Clinton (D) 50%, McCain (R) 37% No wonder Howard Dean is screaming about scrapping the electoral college. http://campaignspot.nationalreview.com/post/?q=MDVmNWQ5MzkyM2U0MDg3MzYwYTBlNDhhODFiZDVlNzU= Because there's a very plausable scenario that Obama might win the popular votes by up to several millions without being able to winn the presidency!

    Friday, March 28, 2008 CAMPAIGN NEWS Obama Pans Bill Clinton's Economic Legacy. The economy was the main topic on the presidential campaign trail Thursday, with both Sens. Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama addressing the issue at separate events. ABC World News reported on "what is clearly the number one issue with voters: the economy. All three candidates are talking about it these days, with major speeches about what they would do as president." ABC added, "Today for the first time a major presidential candidate said flat-out what no other candidate has said." Obama said, "As most experts agree, our economy...

    We have to stop talking about Americans in terms of "the rich" or "the poor" - or even in terms of economic "class" envy altogether. America was not designed to have any set of socio-economic classes, which would be used by ambitious politicians to exploit every American via class warfare. We are individuals, each with different dreams and talents and desires. We are equal only in opportunity and the rules of nature which dictate only that failure, equality and success are individual rights achieved only by individual effort. The only "us against them" that really exists in America is "us...

    Campaigning in Casper, Wyo., Friday night for the 12 delegates to come out of Saturday's Democratic county caucuses, Sen. Barack Obama refused the notion of becoming the vice presidential candidate on this fall's party ticket. Obama was asked by a television reporter, "Can you ever see yourself on the same ticket as Sen. Clinton?" And the freshman Illinois senator replied: "Well, you know, I think it’s premature. You won’t see me as a vice presidential candidate -- you know, I’m running for president. We have won twice as many states as Senator Clinton, and have a higher popular vote, and...

    Niccolo Machiavelli was a political philosopher who expressed his thought in a campaign manual for scoundrels. When a threat to your success is small enough to be dealt with, he shrewdly warned, it is all too easy to ignore. When it has grown too large to ignore, it is often too late to do anything about it. So even the most unscrupulous ambition needs at least this much scruple: never take your position for granted. If you were preparing a new edition of "The Prince," you could illustrate this advice with Hillary Clinton's picture. As results came in on Super...

    It was billed as "Fight Night", "The Final Showdown", and even "The Democrats' Ali versus Frazier". But in the end, the first one-to-one TV debate between Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton was not so much a punchfest as a barbed match of who could be the most polite. By the end of the two hours, Mr Obama and Mrs Clinton were even agreeing to consider the other as their vice president and held each other close as they talked in one another's ears immediately after the debate. The Hollywood A-list audience was certainly expecting blood on the canvas as it...

    MANCHESTER, N.H. (AP) - Democrat Hillary Rodham Clinton criticizes rival Barack Obama's record on abortion rights in a mailing sent to New Hampshire voters. The mailer says that seven times during his time in the Illinois state Senate, Obama declined to take a position on abortion bills, while Clinton has been a defender of abortion rights. During his eight years in the legislature, Obama cast a number of votes on abortion and received a 100 percent rating from the Illinois Planned Parenthood Council for his support of abortion rights, family planning services and health insurance coverage for female contraceptives. He...

    Both Sen. Hillary Clinton and Sen. Barack Obama said they would not participate in a presidential debate sponsored by Fox News Channel, throwing the event in jeopardy. The two senators joined former Sen. John Edwards, who announced on Friday he would not participate in the debate, one of four being held by the Congressional Black Caucus Institute. The Congressional Black Caucus contracted with Fox to co-sponsor two of its debates -- one Democratic and one Republican -- and gave the two others to CNN. But now the top three Democrats in the race have said they will not participate in...
