    WASHINGTON (July 13) - The Democratic National Committee released on Tuesday its lineup of the big-name politicians speaking at the convention this month, and it included every major Democratic star except one. There were Bill Clinton and Jimmy Carter, near the top of the list. Al Gore was there, too, and so was Edward M. Kennedy. Even the wife of the Iowa governor made the cut. But Hillary Rodham Clinton, the junior senator from New York and one of the most prominent names in the party, was nowhere to be found. That caught the attention of many Democrats, who wondered...

    Albany -- A fire-breathing John Edwards stormed into the city Thursday and accused President George W. Bush of steering the GOP convention to New York to "exploit" the city's suffering on Sept. 11, 2001 for political gain. Republican Mayor Michael Bloomberg said he had wanted the city to host the Democratic convention, too, but party boss Terry McAuliffe demanded "an exclusive," leaving New York to the Republicans. "I don't think that either party, if they had their convention here is trying is to exploit 9/11" Bloomberg said during a news conference in Washington Heights. In his speech, Edwards focused on...

    A fascinating mating dance is taking place off camera between US Senator John Edwards and Former Vermont Governor Howard Dean, who seldom shades his disdain for his fellow New Englander, and sources say, has made overtures to Edwards since he left the 2004 Democratic Primary. Dean and Edwards spoke cordially by phone yesterday morning, and we hear, are trying to arrange a face to face meeting in the run up to Super Tuesday March 2.Such a meeting could take place as early as this weekend in New York City.Few things would upend this race more than Dean's decision to back...

Were we right to go to this war alone, basically without the Europeans behind us? Was that something we had to do? EDWARDS: I think that we were right to go. I think we were right to go to the United Nations. I think we couldn’t let those who could veto in the Security Council hold us hostage. And I think Saddam Hussein,...

Bush by 12 percentage points among likely voters, 55% to 43%, while North Carolina Sen. John Edwards leads Bush by 10 points, 54% to 44%. According to the latest CNN/USA Today/Gallup poll, these figures represent a significant improvement in the Democratic candidates' strength from 10 days ago, when Bush had a one-point lead over Kerry and a four-point lead over Edwards. At the end of January, Kerry enjoyed a seven-point lead and Edwards a one-point...

    WASHINGTON (AP) - While John Edwards comes across as articulate and folksy, his lack of political and foreign policy experience could become a liability in the homestretch for the Democratic presidential nomination. But the North Carolina senator's supporters say he's been underestimated before, and that he has a way of connecting with audiences, particularly with his stump message about the ``two Americas'' for the rich and for everybody else.A self-made millionaire trial lawyer who projects the image of a common man, Edwards has flown mostly under the political radar as most attention focused first on Howard Dean and then on...

    DAYTON, Ohio - Democratic front-runner John Kerry had kind words Wednesday for longtime nemesis Howard Dean as he exited the race for the nomination but signaled a new phase of engagement with John Edwards. Edwards came within six points of defeating Kerry in Tuesday's Wisconsin primary, the closest race that Kerry has faced since the Iowa caucuses. Dean finished a distant third, suffering a crushing 17th loss that forced him to quit. While speaking with reporters Wednesday, Kerry dismissed key points of Edwards' campaign and questioned whether a candidate's background should be an issue. Edwards often tells voters that he...

    Sure, John Kerry won the Wisconsin Democratic primary, but a day later, everyone's talking about John Edward's strong second-place showing. Edwards, who received several Wisconsin newspaper endorsements, made it a much closer race than many polls and analysts predicted. In the end, he trailed Kerry by only six percentage points. On Tuesday night, an enthusiastic Edwards joked that, "Objects in your mirror may be closer than they appear." On Wednesday morning, Edwards called his strong showing "surprising," even to him. "We expected to surge, but the strength of the surge was amazing," he said. In a Wednesday morning Today show...

    Although John Kerry narrowly won Wisconsin's primary last night, the big story is his poor showing among mainstream voters, a disastrous trend for him in the general election in November. The talking heads were abuzz about this on the cable news shows last night, and the Associated Press noted today: "Edwards finished far better than pre-primary polls suggested he would, his surge fueled by the highest Republican turnout of the primary season and voters who made up their minds in the last week. His deepest support was in the GOP suburbs of Milwaukee." Edwards won pluralities of independents and Republicans....

    In early 2001, I (a North Carolina voter) decided to take a look at John Edwards's voting record. I was quite surprised to see that not only did he vote against almost every tax cut that came before him, he also voted against the partial birth abortion ban! These votes puzzled me. How could he possibly run for re-election on this record? Then I realized that he didn't intend to run for re-election. The guy was clearly cozying up to Daschle & co. in preparation for a run for the White House. So, I launched in February 2001. Sure...
