    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.

    Republican Candidate Duncan Hunter

    Nearly a year after their 2006 wipeout, these are still tough times for the GOP. President Bush and his aides have argued the party must expand beyond white voters.

    All these philosophical discussions on our air this morning about whether it is appropriate for the Congress, or the President, or the Fed to step in and "bail out" homeowners or risk takers misses the point. In theory, of course they should not bail out anyone.

  • And a Moment for White House Wannabes as Well Friday, 17 Aug 2007 | 5:21 PM ET
    Secretary of State Hillary Clinton
