Ran through it on delay, just now, and that’s my take. Armbinder at The Atlantic agrees: On points, Fred Thompson won the debate. Every answer was thoughtful and well-crafted; his tone matched the tone of the question; he wisely refrained from interjecting in the back and forth squabbling. He very deftly reminded viewers that he […]

I note with some amusement the flack Jonah is getting form the Left… such as Matt Stoller and Glenn Greenwald…for example, over this: Imagine the Democrats do rally around Obama. Imagine the media invests as heavily in him as I think we all know they will if he’s the nominee — and then imagine he […]

The Joe Gandelman, Moderate Voice has gone snarky: It is often been said that former President Bill Clinton is Senator Hillary Clinton’s closest, best and most astute political advisor. If that’s the case and a recent statement he reportedly made is any indication, she should consider firing him and getting a new one. Joe’s commentary is well […]

We’ve already spoken to the Republican side of things, last night. So now on to the Democrats. As we noted, the other night, Chris Dodd and Joe Biden dropped out of the race, not even bothering to wait for the pew days until New Hampshire. Pitiful.

I get asked fairly frequently of late, what are you guys gonna do if one of the (current) frontrunners wins the Republican nomination? Aren’t you painting yourselves into a corner just a little by targeting the front runners? (Example, calling Huckabee a flaming liberal, and an idiot?, your frequent attacks on John McCain, and so […]

Matthew Yglesias, Atlantic,  seems as confused by Mrs. Clinton’s recent campaign maneuver as I am.    Mrs. Clinton has accused  Barack Obama of being too liberal.   Thomas Edsall, Puffington Post: Hillary’s aides point to Obama’s extremely progressive record as a community organizer, state senator and candidate for Congress, his alliances with “left-wing” intellectuals in Chicago’s Hyde […]
