I blogged on Monday about the pattern of support that Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton have attracted in Democratic nomination contests up to now. The key to breaking the deadlock of their close race is breaking that pattern. Has that now happened?
Sen. Barack Obama easily won Democratic primaries Virginia and Maryland on Tuesday and reached out for another in the District of Columbia in a determined drive to erase Hillary Rodham Clinton's delegate lead in the party's presidential race.
Barack Obama scored impressive weekend victories over Hillary Clinton in several Democratic presidential nomination contests. He’s well positioned for this week’s voting in Maryland, Virginia and the District of Columbia.
In their stump speeches and debates, Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama often talk about pushing back against the Washington influence of the powerful pharmaceutical lobby and keeping drug company profits in check.
Wall Street sized up its options in a U.S. presidential campaign likely to pit a Republican with a history of breaking party ranks against one of two Democrats seeking change.
So let's take a look at where the Democratic primary road is heading. Barack Obama's team likes the map over the next three weeks. This Saturday there are caucuses in Louisiana, where the large African American vote should favor Obama. And Nebraska and the state of Washington both hold caucuses--a venue that favors Obama's grass roots organization.
The race for the Democratic presidential nomination remains tight after" Super Tuesday," while Sen. John McCain posts decisive results in the Republican race.
Maybe it's because the industry is maturing; maybe it's because the executives themselves are maturing; but make no mistake: Silicon Valley is putting its money where its mouth is when it comes to the presidential campaign...
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.
Corporate America is pouring money into the U.S. presidential campaign at an unprecedented rate, with a torrent of donations coming from the businesses behind the subprime mortgage crisis.
The U.S. Senate Thursday pushed back until next week a showdown on an economic stimulus package, with Democrats seeking to expand the tax rebates and other benefits approved by the House.
Here is my interview with Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa who's a supporter of Hillary Clinton for the Democratic presidential nomination. It's now down to Clinton and Barack Obama. Both are in a debate tonight in Los Angeles.
Here's what to watch in tonight's GOP presidential debate at the Reagan library in California: Does Mike Huckabee work to undercut the economic arguments Mitt Romney will make against John McCain?
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).
Sen. John McCain won the Florida Republican primary on Tuesday, defeating rival Mitt Romney in a close contest that gave momentum to his effort to become the party's U.S. presidential candidate, U.S. media projected.
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.

This week showcases an unusual role reversal: someplace else, for at least a moment, will look angrier and more dysfunctional than political Washington. Scarcely a minute passes on the 2008 campaign trail without ritual denunciations of paralysis in the capital because of infighting between Democrats and President Bush’s Republicans.
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.
