  • Democrats

    There are a couple ways to tell that we’ve hit the critical competitive phase of the 2008 Democratic presidential nomination fight. One is the way that all major campaigns are now spending a large chunk of the millions they’ve raised on television ads in Iowa. The state’s Jan. 3 caucuses have traditionally turned on contest may once have turned overwhelmingly on organizational prowess.

  • The Tom Brokaw piece on NBC Nightly News Monday night highlighting Warren Buffett's call for a higher tax rate on very wealthy Americans includes an excerpt from a sit-down interview with Buffett. We're now able to bring you Brokaw's complete interview with Buffett, only on CNBC.com.

  • Dems Debate: Did Hillary Open Door For Opponents? Wednesday, 31 Oct 2007 | 9:30 AM ET
    Secretary of State Hillary Clinton

    What made last night's Democratic debate on MSNBC so significant was not, as advertised ahead of time, that Barack Obama and John Edwards attacked Hillary Clinton. It was that Clinton herself unintentionally affirmed their attacks with her own words.

  • Barack Obama

    Barack Obama has signaled that he's finally ready to step up his challenge to Democratic front-runner Hillary Clinton. From his point of view, it's not a minute too soon. Thus far, Obama has been largely passive--an electric and charismatic presence on the stump, to be sure, but a candidate surprisingly loath to take the fight to a rival with formidable advantages.

  • GOP/Dems "Rangel" Over "Who's Best On Taxes" In 2008 Thursday, 25 Oct 2007 | 4:24 PM ET
    Charles Rangel

    Charlie Rangel’s tax reform bill isn't likely to become law anytime soon. Yet its already an active part of the presidential campaign, as Republicans try to reclaim control of the tax issue in advance of the 2008 elections.

  • Mitt Romney Exposes His "Follicle" Cleavage Monday, 22 Oct 2007 | 10:31 AM ET

    I took some grief a few months back for convicting Hillary Clinton, in this space and elsewhere, of calculation in the public display of cleavage that prompted a Washington Post fashion review and lots of talk in the blogosphere. I still think I was right.

  • Pfizer's Response On CEO Kindler's Contributions Friday, 12 Oct 2007 | 4:36 PM ET

    I blogged earlier today that I'd reached out to Pfizer for comment regarding Jeff Kindler's contribution to Sen. Hillary Clinton and would let you know if or when I heard back. Well, this just arrived in my inbox from Jack Cox with Corporate Affairs:

  • Peter Rost, who burst onto the business news landscape a few years ago as a Pfizer whistleblower and the subject of a piece on CBS' "60 Minutes", is enjoying a new career as a blogger and a reporter for Brandweek. And late yesterday he's blitzing some of his reporter contacts with this item about the apparent 180-degree change presidential politics at the world's biggest pharmaceutical company.

  • Clinton Off Camera And The Gore "Candidacy" Friday, 12 Oct 2007 | 11:07 AM ET

    Given the modern-day distance between national politicians and journalists like me--much greater than when my late father Richard Harwood covered presidential campaigns for the Washington Post four decades ago -it's enjoyable and valuable to get to know them at least a little better.

  • Hillary Clinton: My "Unshrouded" One On One With Her Thursday, 11 Oct 2007 | 4:37 PM ET

    I traveled to New Hampshire to interview Hillary Clinton today and almost was shrouded in the sort of invisibility cloak familiar to Harry Potter fans. Why? Because up until the last minute technical difficulties led us to believe that instead of two working cameras (one on her and one on me) we would only have one.

  • Political Ads: Lots Of Spending But Who Benefits? Wednesday, 3 Oct 2007 | 9:16 AM ET

    The numbers are in and it was a rich third quarter for candidates--Hillary Clinton's campaign raised $27 million in the third quarter, beating Barack Obama, whose campaign raised about $20 million over the same time period.

  • GOP/Dems: Is Presidential Hopeful List Shrinking? Wednesday, 3 Oct 2007 | 9:13 AM ET
    Newt Gingrich

    The decision by Newt Gingrich to bypass the 2008 presidential race means the fields in both parties are set--at least for now. I wasn't surprised by Gingrich's decision; since talking with him at a press breakfast a couple of weeks ago, I didn't expect his exploratory effort to result in a "Go", though I did expect it to last longer than just a few days.

  • Clinton/Obama At Dems Debate: Missed Opportunities Thursday, 27 Sep 2007 | 10:36 AM ET

    The single signature moment of last night's debate was what first appeared to be Hillary Clinton's declaration of independence from her ex-president husband. "He's not the one standing here"--her line after Tim Russert pressed on differences between her position and Bill Clinton's on torture--was a dramatic and effective moment of self-assertion.

  • In a Democratic Debate, Rivals Assail Clinton Thursday, 27 Sep 2007 | 1:07 AM ET

    Democratic presidential candidates pounced on rival Hillary Clinton for her positions on Iraq and Iran in a debate on Thursday as they sought to undercut her status as the campaign front-runner.

    Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Rodham Clinton issued a call for universal health care on Monday, plunging back into a political battle she memorably waged and lost as first lady more than a decade ago.

  • Trade Politics: What Will Turn Into Trade Policy? Monday, 24 Sep 2007 | 4:31 PM ET

    When Erin Burnett's show "Street Signs" called me to talk trade this afternoon, the question was "Is Trade Dead?" I thought, for this Congress, it was--until I did a little reporting.  As it happens, Republican and Democratic leadership sources both expect SOME progress on trade before the 2008 elections.

  • Norman Hsu: Why Story May Hang Over Hillary, Others Friday, 21 Sep 2007 | 5:12 PM ET

    Here's why the Norman Hsu case is so alarming--for Hillary Clinton and other presidential candidates, not to mention the investors who prosecutors say were swindled out of $60-million. It's that no one knows how big this iceberg is.

  • Gingrich, Thompson, Clinton: Key Political Notes Friday, 21 Sep 2007 | 11:21 AM ET
    Newt Gingrich

    Here are notes of interest from the political front. The first one on Newt Gingrich is from a breakfast meeting I attended this week with other journalists. The former Speaker sees a bleak Republican outlook but keeps a potential 2008 candidacy alive.

  • Obama's Tax Plan: Another Sign of Hillary's Strength? Tuesday, 18 Sep 2007 | 4:48 PM ET

    I noted earlier that the questions rivals had raised about Hillary Clinton's health plan indicated she may have hit the political sweet spot. Republican Mitt Romney slammed her for a "big government" plan whose signal feature matched one he backed as Massachusetts governor.
