The Rev. Kamikaze

May 6, 2008 With just nine contests remaining, the Democratic presidential nomination race is getting even more interesting. Just days ago, it seemed that the only way that Barack Obama could fail to clinch his party's nod would be to leave his wife and move in with the Rev. Jeremiah Wright. That is,...

Hillary’s Political Purgatory

April 29, 2008 The good news for Hillary Rodham Clinton is that she's winning a lot of battles. The bad news is that the war is pretty much lost. Sure, she won Pennsylvania's April 22 primary by a strong 9 points in the face of being outspent on television ads by Barack Obama...

The Chemistry Experiment

April 22, 2008 Hillary Rodham Clinton's address to an AFL-CIO group on Wednesday morning could easily have been mistaken for the speech of someone who would soon be the Democratic Party's presidential nominee. Clinton was warmly received by the standing-room-only, mostly middle-aged, predominantly male crowd. She said all the right things in all...

The GOP's 'Electile Dysfunction'

April 15, 2008 Not long ago, many observers were speculating that presumptive GOP presidential nominee John McCain would have trouble uniting his party because of the antipathy that much of the Republican establishment and its right wing had long had for the Arizona maverick. Those days are pretty much gone. McCain now fairly...

Battling a Headwind

April 8, 2008 Conservatives have been surprisingly muted in their criticism of John McCain ever since The New York Times ran an article on February 21 raising questions about the close friendship between the maverick senator from Arizona and a much younger female lobbyist. Maybe there is some truth to the adage "The...

McCain's Own Surge

April 1, 2008 By almost every available gauge, Republicans are in deep trouble. Except, that is, for the one that counts most -- the presidential election trial heat. The GOP has serious problems, no doubt. According to a report released by the Pew Research Center for the People and the Press last week,...

Monumental Incompetence

March 25, 2008 You have to hand it to the state of Florida and its Democratic Party: When something is just too darned difficult for them, like, say, holding an unscheduled election, they just admit it. There's something to be said for knowing one's limitations, as Clint Eastwood's character pointed out in Magnum...

Judgment Calls

March 18, 2008 If we've learned anything in political journalism this year, it should be that absolutes are absolutely to be avoided. Hillary Rodham Clinton might well win more delegates than Barack Obama in the April 22 Pennsylvania primary. And it is plausible that she could close in on her rival by winning...

Starting Line

March 11, 2008 "Once again two great armies will be coming back to Pennsylvania to fight the decisive battle." Tony Corrado, a professor of government at Colby College, is one of the few real experts on the Democratic Party's byzantine delegate-selection process and the strategies that flow from it. When he started using...

The Democrats' Advantages

March 4, 2008 With the upcoming Ohio, Rhode Island, Texas, and Vermont contests, this presidential primary campaign will, for all intents and purposes, turn the corner. John McCain will almost certainly win enough delegates to officially put him over the top for the Republican nomination, and, although Barack Obama will not have a...
