Politics John McCain

  • As Clinton looks to recharge her comeback with a win in Pennsylvania, and Obama says that Clinton will probably win the PA primary according to AP, the Intrade markets (www.intrade.com)  have been predicting Clinton as a clear front runner in Pennsylvania since early March. 

  • It’s rather amusing watching the liberal media launch a full-scale attack on George Stephanopoulos and Charles Gibson, with General Tom Shales of the Washington Post leading the charge.

  • White House

    All three presidential candidates are largely in sync on the need to curb greenhouse gases and despite President Bush’s recent apotheosis on the subject, most analysts expect the landmark legislation will still have to wait for the next administration.

  • Here are a few notable guest comments from last night’s show in response to my interview with Republican presidential candidate John McCain. Incidentally, one area in particular where McCain has it absolutely right is lowering corporate tax rates.

  • Presidential Candidate, John McCain

    In the three decades that I've been covering politicians, I've rarely met one more in sync with reporters than John McCain. And I don't say that because we wore precisely the same tie today.

  • Republican presidential hopeful John McCain on Tuesday called for a summer gas tax holiday for Americans wincing at high pump prices as part of a wide-ranging plan to help the ailing U.S. economy.

  • I just wrapped up a lengthy interview with Republican presidential nominee John McCain. We spent some time discussing his recent statements on corporate greed and excessive CEO pay. It was a very lively debate. I asked Sen. McCain if he doesn’t sound a lot like Hillary and Obama on all this stuff.

    In politics first impressions matter a lot, and John McCain made a good one on the American people in 2000. It still benefits him today now that he has locked up the GOP presidential nomination.

    When the 2008 presidential race began in earnest last year, no one could have imagined the Iraq war as a change of subject. But that’s what it was when Congressional testimony took John McCain, Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama away from the top campaign issue--the slumping economy.

  • My pal Jerry Bowyer e-mailed me this morning with the following thought on Clinton bigwig Mark Penn: Free trade among Democrats is so completely dead in the water that any Democratic advisor favoring free trade is subject to the death penalty

    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.

    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.

    The steadily rising costs of higher education – roughly twice the inflation rate – makes it  a permanent part of the iron cross of American worries,  joining concerns about retirement, health care and jobs.

  • Pollster Frank Newport, a Kudlow & Company regular and editor-in-chief of the Gallup Poll, revealed some very interesting information this morning. These numbers below are a big deal.

  • Strong growth in Latin America should take this ag machinery company higher.
