    Enthusiasm over the 2008 presidential election is motivating some people to wear their politics on their sleeve. Literally.

  • John McCain

    It's funny the way politicians in different circumstances and different parties try to surf the same waves. I saw John McCain speak in Baton Rouge last night. He made an argument about government reform that mirrored the successful campaign themes of Louisiana's new governor Bobby Jindal

  • Fields of corn surround the Golden Grain Energy ethanol plant, in Mason City, Iowa.

    The ethanol industry, once highly touted as a home-grown, alternative energy source, is struggling to retain its diminishing luster.

  • No, that's not a typo. There's at least one type of alternative energy that will almost certainly benefit from a Republican presidency.

  • Some notable quotes from last night's Kudlow & Company: "[If Obama is the Democratic nominee] this is going to be -- ideologically -- the greatest distinction that we’ve had in candidates since the 1980 election when Jimmy Carter ran against Reagan." And much more...

  • Barack Obama

  • 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.

  • Presidential Candidate, John McCain

    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

  • What follows is the transcript of my interview on Kudlow and Company last night with former Republican presidential candidate, Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney.
