Rush Limbaugh's First Shots at Huckabee  —  So everybody and their brother is listening to Rush today, wondering if he'll take a shot at Huckabee after an unnamed Huckabee aide in DC criticized Limbaugh...  The first comment, moments into the show: “You want to whine like Mike Huckabee's whining …

RE: Bye, Bye Mike  —  Regarding that Huckabee advisor's soon-to-be-regretted comments about Limbaugh, Huckabee actually encourages people in his book From Hope to Higher Ground: 12 STOPs to Restoring America's Greatness to “listen to less talk radio” as part of his “12 Action Steps to STOP Being Cynical.”

Witnesses recall Romney-MLK march  —  Shirley Basore, 72, says she was sitting in the hairdresser's chair in wealthy Grosse Pointe, Mich., back in 1963 when a rumpus started and she discovered that Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and her governor, George Romney, were marching for civil rights — right past the window.

Two Polls: Obama Tied In New Hampshire And Would Outpoll Clinton Nationally  —  Is it a sign that direct and apparent “surrogate” attacks from New York Senator Hillary Clinton's camp have backfired?  Perhaps...  Two new polls bring continued good news for Illinois Senator Barack Obama …
