  • REAGAN CAMPAIGN MAKES LAST-MINUTE STOP IN MONDALE'S TURF

    ROCHESTER, Minn., Nov. 4— With the glee of brigands, the Reagan campaign touched down in its rival's home state this morning so President Reagan might personally seek to sway some final, resistant votes from Walter F. Mondale. A day after they disowned any intent to ''rub in'' their lead in the polls by visiting the Democratic nominee's home turf, Reagan strategists did precisely that. Without the usual advance preparation, they hurried the President into a rural airport as recorded music played and travelers gawked at Air Force One. Some thought Mr. Reagan was using the sudden foray to embarrass Mr....

    Former Vice President Walter Mondale is endorsing Minnesota Rep. Keith Ellison to become the next Democratic National Committee chair. The move gives the two top contenders to helm the party -- Ellison and former Labor Secretary Tom Perez -- one vice presidential endorsement each, after Joe Biden backed Perez earlier this week. It comes as Democrats head to Detroit for their third of four "future forums" Saturday, where candidates for party leadership lay out their visions, before the DNC's 447 voting members select their new chair in a late-February meeting in Atlanta. "Keith was a Minnesota star in the state...

    "We may be introducing a kind of poison into the American political system that can hurt us," Mondale said. "If this sort of stuff is accepted, condoned, is seen as positive, we'll see more of it." Mondale, who supports Hillary Clinton for president, worries if Donald Trump or Texas Sen. Ted Cruz wins the Republican nomination. Trump, he said, has "stirred up a sub-caucus of Americans that like anti-immigrant talk, that like assaults against decent immigration rules. If there is an America out there that is so brash, so racist, so nativist that they like supporting Trump or so evangelically...

    Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) ’s dismal Super Tuesday performance has prompted comparisons likening him to failed Democratic Presidential candidate Walter Mondale, who suffered an embarrassing defeat against Ronald Reagan in 1984, when the only state he won was his home state of Minnesota.

    Former Vice President Walter Mondale, 87, has been hospitalized for influenza, former President Jimmy Carter confirmed Friday. During a speech at the Nobel Peace Prize Forum in Minneapolis, Minnesota, Carter said he had "just got through talking" to Mondale, his former vice president, who was being treated at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota. "He went there for just a regular physical examination but had a fever, and they finally said that he has influenza," Carter told the crowd. "He is in the bed right this moment, but looking forward to come back home. He said tell everybody he is...

    Valid Questions: After Bill Clinton contradicted State Department claims about Hillary's health with news of a six-month rehab, her fitness should be as much of an issue as Sarah Palin's baby and John McCain's age. Karl Rove has taken a lot of heat for raising the issue of age and mental condition of a secretary of state who disappeared from public view as the Benghazi controversy arose. The questions are similar to those asked about President Reagan after his first debate with Vice President Walter Mondale, and those asked about Sen. John McCain and his prisoner of war experiences. So...

    Many people who have followed the Justina Pelletier case—largely ignored by the mainstream media, by the way—have thought that there has to be more to it, or that it’s an outrageous out-of-the-ordinary affair. This is the case where the Massachusetts Department of Children and Families forcibly took custody from her parents over a year ago of a teenager who had been treated for years for mitochondrial disease (a genetic disorder), when they brought her to Boston Children’s Hospital for consultation about a related gastrointestinal problem and resisted a quickly-made diagnosis by a medical resident and a psychologist there that she...

    “This is basically not very interesting stuff,” former Vice President Walter Mondale said of filibuster reform during a talk Tuesday at theUniversityofMinnesota’s Humphrey School of Public Affairs. But it’s a huge issue, Mondale said, because use of the stalling tactic in the Senate is paralyzing the country from addressing everything from the debt crisis and national security to judicial and cabinet appointments. In recent years, the Senate Republican minority has employed filibusters — once rarely used — to stall or kill a long list Democratic bills and presidential appointments. As a result, Mondale said, almost nothing is getting done. “It’s...

    This morning, the Romney campaign announced that Paul Ryan would go to Minnesota on Sunday for a pre-election campaign rally. Its a clear sign that the Romney campaign thinks Minnesota is winnable. Where campaigns spend their time in the closing days of a race says much more about their view of the election than words repeated by campaign flacks. Candidates' time is a campaign's most precious resource, and it is deployed only if it's needed or can have an impact. You don't waste a candidate's time on a bluff in the final 48 hours. Last night, the campaign announced that...

    Former Democratic Vice President Walter Mondale and former Republican Gov. Arne Carlson became the public faces of a fight against a proposed Minnesota constitutional amendment requiring voters to present photo IDs at the polls. The pair was introduced Tuesday, June 27, as two of four co-chairs of the Our Vote Our Future coalition's campaign against the ballot measure. Voters will decide in November whether to make government-issued photo identification essential to participating in an election. The coalition's advisory committee is decidedly heavy with former Democratic officeholders. This spring, the Republican-controlled Legislature advanced the measure to the ballot without the support...

Texas Gov. Rick Perry’a initial splash upon entering the field of Republican candidates garnered him a lot of attention and a bump in the polls, but some are saying that the luster has worn off. On this weekend’s broadcast of “Inside Washington,” Washington Post columnist Charles Krauthammer, who admitted he wasn’t sold on...

    So, it appears that the president has decided to channel the candidacy of Walter Mondale from 1984. Here’s President Obama, on Monday: So this is how we can reduce spending: by scouring the budget for every dime of waste and inefficiency, by reforming government spending, and by making modest adjustments to Medicare and Medicaid. But all these reductions in spending, by themselves, will not solve our fiscal problems. We can’t just cut our way out of this hole. It’s going to take a balanced approach. If we’re going to make spending cuts -- many of which we wouldn’t make if...
