Last night, the current field of 10 Democratic Presidential hopefuls took the stage at the Citadel in South Carolina. It was hosted by the team of CNN and the popular web site, YouTube. The co-hosts promised a revolutionary debate that included questions directly from voters...well, voters with a webcam, cameraphone (theoretically, tho i saw no "videophoned questions") or some digital video capability.

the coverage was 100% better than CNN's last effort. Many of the voter questions were tho...

The 2nd quarter fund-raising totals are coming in this weekend. Already it has been reported by the Obama camp that they are literally smashing any precedents of the "number of individual donors" reporting numbers of over 250,000 in just the 2nd quarter alone. And the folks who follow the campaigns are impressed. And indeed, I think it is safe to say that Barack Obama is energizing people who haven;'t been involved or interested in politics ever or at least a very long time. His crowds at live...

In the next few weeks, events could shape up in a way that will have the potential to be more important in shaping the 2008 primary than all the debates, polls and quarterly earnings statements thus far. It is a relatively small tax bill that could be key in determining each of the leading democratic Presidential candidates view from the “working class” of America.

The bill deals with the issue that wall street millionaires and billionaires have utilized a loophole in the tax code whereas th...

This week the Obama campaign is celebrating record setting fundraising efforts for the 2nd quarter of the year. The campaign is reporting raising over 32 million dollars. Handily beating Hillary Clinton and trouncing the rest of both the GOP and Democratic fields. In addition, the campaign is reporting a record 238,000 new donors. This is far more individual donors than any campaign has reported in a quarter in election history.

Plus, in addition to meetings with former Secretary of State an...

In case the liberal crowd has forgotten that it isn't only the right wing of the GOP that occasionally endorses policy that controls what we say, hear and such, Senator Diane Feinstein has reminded us.

Today, on Fox Feinstein said that it might be time to reinstate the Fairness Doctrine for talk radio.

“I am looking at it,” she said.

“In my view, talk radio tends to be one-sided, tends to dwell in hyperbole. It is explosive, pushes people to extreme views without a lot of information,...

This summer reading season is seeing a crop of new books about Senator Clinton. Some of them positive, some of them negative. Most of which, even the ones that don't paint the forcmer 1st lady in a positive light, aren't kind about their marriage. Unfortunately, that's not much of a bombshell. Real news might be if we found out they had a great marriage.

But more disturbing are Senator Clinton's past actions, or inactions in regards to the biggest issue of our times, the war on terror. At le...

Last night, the 8 democratic candidates took center stage in South Carolina. They took part in a 90 minute, introduce yourself to america kind of debate. While nothing will be won or lost from this debate, in all likelihood, some did well and could see some poll bumps. Others, might see some numbers slip. And of course, for the lower tiered candidates, slipping much lower could cause their ability to compete down the road, unless you're Mike Gravel, who seems to be running the "make some points...

Everyone knows Dennis Kucinich is an anti war, pro labor liberal democrat. He is the most liberal of all the democratic candidates for President.

Kucinich plans on offering articles of impeachment against vice president Dick Cheney. After he submits his impeachment charges, the matter will be reviewed, inspected, negleted, rejected, disinfected and so on...

And in the end will probaby never be seriouly brought up on the house floor before Mr Cheney heads off into the sunset in 2009. Kucin...

Nanci Pelosi defended her decision to allow Congressman Jefferson on the Homeland Security committee. She weakly contended that his district, which includes New Orleans was vital to the committee.

Nonsense!

Last year, after allegations and 90,000 of marked bills in his freezer came to light, Jefferson was rightfully kicked off the Ways and Means committee. Unfortunately, the people of New Orleans sent this soon to be felon back to Washington. Most of the nation cited corruption as a majo...
