Huckabee: McCain-lover, Mitt-killer  —  COLUMBIA, S.C.—For people reading between the lines, Mike Huckabee's concession speech here Saturday night dropped some enticing hints that his presidential campaign now has an agenda other than getting elected president.  —  Huckabee's new role: Mitt-killer.

GOP Field Readies for True Test In Florida  —  The Top Candidates Finally Go All-Out In a Closed Primary  —  Riding the momentum from his weekend victory in South Carolina, John McCain turned his attention Sunday to Florida and the high-stakes primary there that will test whether …
Howard Kurtz / Washington Post:
Accessibility Opens Doors For McCain  —  SPARTANBURG, S.C. — As the JetBlue charter from Michigan touched down in South Carolina, I strolled up to John McCain's front-row seat — none of his aides batted an eye — and asked if he would continue to chat with reporters around the clock if he won the Republican nomination.
The Campaign Spot:
Weird Florida Polls  —  We've been hearing, and I've been saying, that the polls indicate a wide-open, four-man race in Florida.  But the polls actually indicate some separation between those four guys.  —  Insider Advantage puts Huckabee at 13 percent, quite a ways behind Giuliani at 21 percent.

Carrie Budoff Brown / The Politico:
Obama faces off against both Clintons  —  ATLANTA - Illinois Sen. Barack Obama launched Sunday what his top aides described as a more aggressive bid to challenge “unbelievable falsehoods” pressed last week in Nevada by Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton and former President Bill Clinton.
Josh Marshall / Talking Points Memo:
THE PROBLEM WITH BILL  —  Yesterday I wrote that I was troubled by the intensity of Bill Clinton's attacks on Barack Obama.  A number of readers thought I meant that I didn't like seeing bare-knuckle politics.  But that's not it.  What troubles me is seeing the man who is in many respects still …
Jason Horowitz / New York Observer:
Obama Addresses Homophobia, Anti-Semitism and Xenophobia Among Black Americans  —  In a speech today at Atlanta's Ebenezer Baptist Church, where Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.served as pastor, Barack Obama talked about the existence of institutional racism, the sensationalizing of race “by the media” …
Pam / Pam's House Blend:
Obama addresses homophobia, anti-Semitism and xenophobia in MLK Ebenezer Baptist Church speech  —  Today Barack Obama zeroed in on equal opportunity bigotry — and why everyone should strive to not only elevate the political discourse, but to be honest about the base instincts, words and deeds that divide, not unite.

Matthew Yglesias:
Obama v. Krugman Round A Million  —  I think this is getting a bit silly.  In his column, Paul Krugman seems to suggest that the main reason the Clinton administration failed to bring about major progressive change in the 1990s is that they didn't talk enough smack about Ronald Reagan.

James Joyner / Outside The Beltway:
Fred Thompson Loss Ends Republican Party  —  Steve Bainbridge is preparing to sit out the 2008 election rather than vote for anyone but Fred Thompson. … If only Fred Thompson were a better candidate, the party and the Republic could have survived.  Pity.

Richard Pérez-Peña / New York Times:
Frontline Blogger Covers War in Iraq With a Soldier's Eyes  —  Michael Yon was not a journalist, and he wasn't sure what a blogger was.  He had been in uniform but not in combat, and he wanted to keep it that way.  He went to Iraq thinking he would stay for a month, and maybe find a way to write about the war after he got home.
Josh Marshall / Talking Points Memo:
WHAT THE GROWN-UPS SAY  —  Seriously, why should John Edwards drop out of the race?  I think his chances of winning the nomination at this point are quite slim.  And I could understand if he wanted to drop out.  But is there some reason he should?  Is he under some obligation?
