  • GOP Debate: Key Moment To Watch For (Dems Too) Wednesday, 30 Jan 2008 | 5:16 PM ET

    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?

  • 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
    Presidential Candidate, John McCain

    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.

  • 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.

  • McCain Now Front Runner--Edwards To Drop Out Wednesday, 30 Jan 2008 | 9:45 AM ET
    Presidential Candidate, John McCain

    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.

  • House Passes Economic Stimulus Package Tuesday, 29 Jan 2008 | 4:34 PM ET

    The House passed a $146 billion economic recovery package. The package faces an uncertain future in the Senate, where lawmakers in both parties are trying to tack on billions for senior citizens and the unemployed.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • Clinton, McCain Win New York Times Endorsement Thursday, 24 Jan 2008 | 11:32 PM ET

    The New York Times endorsed Democratic Sen. Hillary Clinton and Republican Sen. John McCain for their party's nominations to contest the U.S. presidential in November.

  • Stimulus Package Debate: Not Over By A Long Shot Thursday, 24 Jan 2008 | 4:44 PM ET

    I woke up Wednesday morning in Washington DC, where economic crisis, which in turn means political crisis, was in the air. Fed Chairman Bernanke had cut rates the day before and helped calm financial markets. But the White House and Congress wanted to do more. Republican and Democratic leaders, who normally have guns drawn on each other, were huddling behind closed door.

  • 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.

  • Republican Romney Wins Michigan Primary Tuesday, 15 Jan 2008 | 9:12 PM ET
    Mitt Romney

    Mitt Romney scored a breakthrough win in the Michigan primary on Tuesday, reviving his struggling campaign, halting rival John McCain's momentum and further scrambling a chaotic Republican presidential race with no clear front-runner.

  • Economic Reality "Bites" The Presidential Candidates Tuesday, 15 Jan 2008 | 4:26 PM ET

    Received political wisdom is running smack into economic reality. It’s not yet clear which force will prove more powerful. For presidential contenders, the collision takes place in Michigan, Nevada and South Carolina.

  • Like nearly everyone else who works in or around politics, I was stunned by Hillary Clinton's victory over Barack Obama in New Hampshire. My expectation of events turned out to be wholly wrong. I am less embarrassed by that, than thrilled that the electorate we dissect so constantly remains capable of delivering such a surprise.

  • Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton

    Hillary Clinton stands behind no Democratic presidential candidate in her scorn for George W. Bush, but that isn’t stopping her from implementing Mr. Bush’s 2000 political strategy against John McCain. In one notable consequence of the front-loaded 2008 political calendar, she used it before the New Hampshire primary, not after.

  • Clinton Scores Big Win in New Hampshire Wednesday, 9 Jan 2008 | 7:27 AM ET

  • Is Crying Good or Bad for Clinton's Chances? Tuesday, 8 Jan 2008 | 12:12 PM ET

    Voting in New Hampshire ends at 8 p.m. EST on Tuesday, with results expected to begin rolling in quickly.

    A teary-eyed Hillary Clinton pushed for support on Monday as polls showed her poised for a huge New Hampshire loss to Democratic rival Barack Obama, but the former front-runner vowed to carry on with her presidential quest even if she loses.

  • Hillary's "New" Song And McCain's Retro Sound Tuesday, 8 Jan 2008 | 10:13 AM ET

    Hillary Clinton, fighting for a comeback showing in New Hampshire, has begun playing Bruce Springsteen's "The Rising," which also happens also to be the anthem of John Edwards' populist campaign.

  • Obama Jumps Into the Lead In New Hampshire Race Monday, 7 Jan 2008 | 5:37 PM ET
    Barack Obama

    Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton battled to keep crucial New Hampshire from swinging to rival Barack Obama, but new polls showed him jumping into the lead.
