  • Hillary's Hill Just Keeps Getting Steeper To Climb Monday, 7 Apr 2008 | 11:26 AM ET

    Mark Penn’s meeting with Colombian diplomats on passing a new trade deal embarrassed Hillary Clinton at a time she can’t afford to lose any blue collar votes. And his ouster as her chief strategist adds turmoil she doesn’t need as she struggles to catch up with Barack Obama.

  • Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz of Florida, a rising Democratic star in the House of Representatives, has been a stalwart supporter of Hillary Rodham Clinton throughout the presidential primary campaign.

  • The rapid progress in Washington on bipartisan housing legislation, as on the earlier stimulus legislation, shows how strongly fear can change the mind of politicians. Congressional Republicans, taking cues from their free-market leader at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, had generally been keeping their distance from the idea that further action is necessary on the housing mess.

  • Hillary Clinton: Should She Stay Or Should She Go? Tuesday, 1 Apr 2008 | 3:50 PM ET
    Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton

    OK, for a while I thought my little peace-making idea (see my last pre-vacation post) was working. I'd look from time to time at my blackberry, and found NOT A SINGLE MESSAGE from Barack Obama or Hillary Clinton trash-talking each other. Maybe I HAD helped turned down the volume on the Democratic primary noise machine.

  • When I heard a soundbite with Sen. Hillary Clinton on CNBC's "Kudlow & Company" last night, it reminded me to check and see if the Center for Responsive Politics had updated its monthly campaign contribution data.

  • Tennessee Gov. Phil Bredesen

    Gov. Phil Bredesen of Tennessee has proposed a fascinating exit strategy for the Democrats' nomination-race dilemma. He wants a special "primary" for the uncommitted "super-delegates" to settle the choice between Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton.

  • Hillary’s Delusion Is Mac’s Gain Tuesday, 25 Mar 2008 | 3:05 PM ET

    Hillary’s fictitious tale of sniper fire in Bosnia might help Obama, but the real winner here is John McCain. The CBS footage making the rounds clearly refutes the former first lady’s claim that she had to run for cover from sniper fire when she got off the plane in Bosnia.

  • John McCain's "Gift" From Democrats Monday, 24 Mar 2008 | 1:14 PM ET

    The bitter fight between Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama is a gift to the presumptive Republican nominee, John McCain. It's the gift of time to strengthen his campaign this spring. But McCain needs to use that time well, because even though he has moved ahead in some national polls, the Iraq war, the slumping economy and the unpopularity of President Bush...

  • McCain Surges Ahead Thursday, 20 Mar 2008 | 12:59 PM ET

    Has anyone noticed that John McCain is surging in the polls? According to the latest print from Rasmussen and Zogby, McCain now holds a 6 to 8 point lead against Hill-Bama. And I doubt that Senator Obama’s speech Tuesday will change anything. It was nothing more than a non-denial denial of his fidelity to Reverend Jeremiah Wright and Wright’s hard-left anti-American agenda.

  • John McCain Is "Luckiest Guy In American Politics" Wednesday, 19 Mar 2008 | 5:13 PM ET

    2007 was a lousy year for John McCain, who lost his status as the Republican presidential front-runner and saw huge chunks of his campaign staff walk out the door. But in 2008, his campaign manager Rick Davis points out, he's "the luckiest guy in American politics."

  • The public phase of the Democratic presidential race will now pause, briefly, for a back-to-the-future experiment in backroom deal-making. It's an unusual turn for the self-styled party of the people, which began four decades ago to throw open the doors of its nomination process to rank-and-file voters.

  • Time once again to share your mail, and answer some of yours messages. Thanks for writing, and keep 'em coming. From Patty: "Geraldine Ferraro basically called Senator Obama Senator Edwards. Is that such an insult? I hasten to add that I believe that if Senator Clinton's preacher of 20 plus years was advocating singing "God Damn America,"

  • Memo To Candidates: Stop All The Whining About The Press Thursday, 13 Mar 2008 | 12:05 PM ET

    One of the familiar themes of modern day politics is whining about the role of the press. Losing candidates often resort to this as an explanation for their lagging performance. We've heard it plenty from Hillary Clinton's campaign, which says the press has been too hard on her and too easy on Barack Obama.

  • Economy Keeps Clinton in Democratic Favor Wednesday, 12 Mar 2008 | 6:38 PM ET

    Hillary Clinton retains a narrow lead over Barack Obama among Democratic voters nationwide, helped in part by her advantage on economic issues, a new NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll shows.

    Barack Obama

    Barack Obama beat rival Hillary Clinton in Mississippi on Tuesday, giving him new momentum in their increasingly nasty presidential fight as they head into the next critical showdown in Pennsylvania in six weeks.

  • Suddenly the Democratic presidential primary race is teetering on the edge--not just between Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton, but between boon or disaster for the party’s 2008 hopes. So far, the clash between two history-making candidacies has only helped. In state after state, Democrats displayed their enthusiasm through robust primary turnouts that drew in many new voters.

  • So the Democrats are just determined to deny any down time at all for those of us who've been running around the country covering the 2008 campaign. Not only will to process go on until at least April 22 and the Pennsylvania primary, it may well go a lot longer.
