    The Intrade market (www.intrade.com) is predicting that McCain is starting to pull away in the GOP race while Clinton and Obama are still neck-and-neck.  See how the candidates stack up going into Super Tuesday...

  • The good news for the 2008 presidential candidates is that their torturous march across the Super Tuesday battlefield ends tomorrow night. The bad news: A new march begins the next morning. For Democrats Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton, it will be longer perhaps excruciatingly so.

  • Michael Bloomberg: Is He Hollywood's Man For White House? Wednesday, 30 Jan 2008 | 4:04 PM ET

    As we lead up to Super Tuesday I've been reporting on the intersection of Hollywood and politics. Hollywood plays a key role raising awareness about issues, and candidates. (Though I wouldn't say that a Hollywood endorsement is necessarily a good thing).

  • McCain Wins Tight Battle in Florida Wednesday, 30 Jan 2008 | 12:00 PM ET

  • John Edwards: Where Will His "Faithful" Go Now? Wednesday, 30 Jan 2008 | 11:10 AM ET

    Here's a video clip from this morning where I talk about John Edwards' decision to leave the Democratic presidential primary race. I talked to the Edwards' camp as well as to the Clinton people and Obama's. The speculation is that some of the Edwards' supporters such as union members will probably go to Hillary Clinton while "change" voters will go to Obama.

    John McCain's win last night in the Florida primary represents a huge development in the Republican presidential race. A campaign that just two weeks ago was a muddle of weak candidates now has a clear front runner.

  • Managing Obama: My Talk With His Campaign Manager Monday, 28 Jan 2008 | 9:54 AM ET

    Here is my talk with Barack Obama's campaign manager David Plouffe, about Obama's race against Hillary Clinton for the Democratic presidential nomination. This was done last week--before the South Carolina primary, which Obama won handily--but it's worth listening to Plouffe talk about the fight for delegates in 22 states on Feb. 5--and about the attacks from former President Bill Clinton. Seems no love lost here.

    This generally is the stage of a campaign when Democrats have to work hard to get excited about whichever candidate seems most likely to outlast an uninspiring pack. That is not remotely the case this year.

  • McCain Takes Another Win, but No Clear Knockouts Sunday, 20 Jan 2008 | 11:08 AM ET

    With his victory in South Carolina on Saturday, Senator John McCain of Arizona has accomplished what no other Republican presidential candidate has been able to do this year: he has captured two competitive contests. Not incidentally, this one was in the state that effectively sank his campaign in 2000.

  • Dems And GOP: What Both Have In Common This Year Wednesday, 16 Jan 2008 | 2:02 PM ET

    Mitt Romney's big win in Michigan last night signals that both parties have wide-open 2008 nomination races--but for much different reasons. Republicans are dispirited and divided, about the merits of their candidates and also about hot-button issues such as immigration and abortion.

  • No Clear Leader for Republican Race Wednesday, 16 Jan 2008 | 11:09 AM ET
