  • Corporate Tax Cuts May Bring Political Foes Together Tuesday, 20 Nov 2007 | 3:58 PM ET

    Journalists in Washington spend most of their time focusing on warfare between Democrats and Republicans. There's a good reason for that: in the dysfunctional capital city of 2007, warfare is what they do best.

  • Hillary Clinton performed strongly at last night's Democratic debate in Nevada. She needed too, after a difficult two weeks in which she harmed her own cause and Barack Obama found his stride. But that doesn't mean that the "Clinton is champ" storyline is any more certain now than the "Obama is surging" was last week.

    As a confirmed political reporting junkie, I ought to be prepared to describe for you the grave significance of tonight's odd-year election results. But alas my respect for the truth forbids it. This is an Election Day that doesn't mean much.

  • 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.

  • A Hairy Moment Wednesday, 10 Oct 2007 | 11:20 AM ET

    On stage just before our debate yesterday, we had one of those classic moments that mocked the egos and pretentions of those of us in the world of politicians and television. Those of us questioning the candidates -- my CNBC colleague Maria Bartiromo, MSNBC's Chris Matthews, my longtime Wall Street Journal colleague Jerry Seib, and me -- had been introduced to the crowd at the Ford Community and Performing Arts Center in Dearborn. Then the Republican candidates strode onto the stage.

  • Take Our Poll: the Candidates, Economy and You Tuesday, 9 Oct 2007 | 10:52 AM ET

  • 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.

    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.

  • 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.

  • Clinton's Attackers: Giving Her The Fight She Loves? Tuesday, 18 Sep 2007 | 12:48 PM ET
    Secretary of State Hillary Clinton

    John Edwards is attacking Hillary Clinton on health care. He argues that her approach isn't sufficiently confrontational, that she'd be too friendly to the insurance industry and thus couldn't deliver on the priority Democratic primary voters care about most: universal health coverage. .

  • Highlights from NBC News/Wall Street Journal Poll Thursday, 13 Sep 2007 | 1:52 PM ET
