  • Editorial in Wednesday's New York Sun: "The best advice for Senator McCain that we've read is the call in the adjacent columns, by Larry Kudlow, for the senator to lead a campaign in respect of the dollar. Mr. Kudlow, a supply-sider of the Reagan school, reckons Mr. McCain should campaign to reverse the declining fortunes of what he calls 'the Bush wartime dollar' because, as Mr. Kudlow puts it, 'America's prestige is on the line.'"

  • We’re gearing up for a top-notch primary special on Kudlow & Company this evening. Tune in to CNBC at 7 pm ET for live up-to-the-minute primary results and much more.

    If Sen. John McCain wants to run as a candidate of change, and if he’s truly interested in distancing himself from President Bush, he should reverse the declining fortunes of the Bush wartime dollar. America's prestige is on the line. Right now the greenback is in virtual freefall.

  • Some interesting insights from Peter Wehner on last night’s Kudlow & Company. Mr. Wehner worked in the Reagan and both Bush administrations. He is now senior fellow at the Ethics and Public Policy Center.

  • Some interesting takes on the markets, economy, and where to put your money on last night's Kudlow & Company. Joe Battipaglia, market strategist at Stifel Nicolaus, thinks energy stocks are running on fumes. Over at Forbes, Mike Ozanian is betting on $1000 gold. He thinks food stocks offer investors serious value.

    When Rich Lowry called me a while ago to report the passing of Bill Buckley, I had to work hard to catch my breath and swallow this news. He was a great man. I am privileged and honored to have shared a part of his wonderful life over the past fifteen years.

  • One of the great, unchallenged, political assertions out there right now is that NAFTA costs American jobs. Hill-Bama busied themselves with this protectionist canard during their debate last night. It happens to be nonsense.

  • Is the Fed in Denial About Inflation? Home prices are falling, but consumer and producer prices are rising. That’s a conundrum for the Fed. Do investors really want the central bank to keep easing interest rates in the teeth of a 4.3 percent 12-month change in the consumer price index?

  • An old friend emailed last night, asking for some info on the Bush tax cuts. He also wanted some insight on the tax and spend proposals being bandied about by big government Obama, Hillary, and others out there.

  • Is it just me, or has anyone else noticed Hillary’s erratic, roller-coaster, mood swings these past few weeks? She’s all over the map. Irritable and angry. Manic. Pessimistic and sad. One minute she’s shedding tears, the next minute she’s shouting and attacking, then she’s sarcastically ripping on Obama, and on and on it goes.
