Obama's Odds

July 8, 2008 If you believe the Intrade betting odds, Barack Obama has a 65 percent chance of beating John McCain in November. Similarly, in the Iowa Electronic Markets, Obama has a 64 percent chance of winning. Indeed, a look at much of the polling data might lead one to conclude that Obama...

Ready or Not?

July 1, 2008 Given the closeness of the last two presidential elections and the considerable polling data pointing to yet another tight contest, this November's election seems likely to be a squeaker. Yes, a Los Angeles Times/Bloomberg poll shows Barack Obama ahead of John McCain by 12 points, and a Newsweek poll has...

Generation Gap

June 24, 2008 It finally dawned on me that white Baby Boomers are the group that is really hurting Barack Obama. Of all people, the generation that brought us the Vietnam War protests and the Summer of Love is proving to be a very tough nut for the presumptive Democratic presidential nominee to...

The Democrat's Bounce

June 17, 2008 In much the same way that people questioned whether conservatives would coalesce behind John McCain once he locked up the GOP presidential nomination, others are now asking whether Democrats (particularly Hillary Rodham Clinton's supporters) will truly rally around Barack Obama. The first poll numbers of this general election campaign suggest...

Chertoff, lawmaker clash over chemical security bill

June 13, 2008 House Homeland Security Committee Chairman Bennie Thompson, D-Miss., has accused Homeland Security Secretary Michael Chertoff of playing "political games" with new chemical security legislation, and says he doubts the department wants to collaborate on a final bill. The dispute erupted this week as the department and Thompson exchanged letters regarding...

Singing the Down-Ballot Blues

June 10, 2008 Considering how bleak Republicans' down-ballot prospects look, it is re-markable that they appear to have a 50-50 shot at holding on to the presidency. What makes this situation particularly unusual is the fact that a party seeking a third consecutive term in the White House generally succeeds only 20 percent...

Gearing Up

June 3, 2008 Much like a car whose gears shift poorly, this presidential contest is making a rather awkward transition to its general election phase. Nevertheless, as it turns into a competition between John McCain and Barack Obama, the race for 270 Electoral College votes is worth a hard look. Keep in mind...

A Punishing Mood

May 27, 2008 At the outset of this election cycle, most political analysts did not anticipate a second consecutive big win in November for congressional Democrats for a number of reasons. First, after voters have punished one party badly, they've usually gotten those hard feelings out of their system and either punish the...

Hard Knocks

May 20, 2008 "Curiouser and curiouser!" cried Alice (she was so much surprised, that for the moment she quite forgot how to speak good English). Like Alice's Adventures in Wonderland, this contest for the Democratic presidential nomination is getting curiouser and curiouser. Sure, arithmetically speaking, it's practically impossible to see how Hillary Rodham...

Upset Republicans

May 13, 2008 Recent special elections for House seats in Illinois and Louisiana that were once reliably Republican sent the GOP an unmistakable signal that the party's 25-year-old playbook is obsolete: Simply spouting an undiluted conservative message doesn't consistently work anymore, even in some of the nation's reddest districts. And a potential loss...
