OBAMA'S “HARRY AND LOUISE” AD.  —  I was going to write a post about the health care exchange in last night's debate, noting that Hillary Clinton is basically arguing against Barack Obama's mandate from the wrong direction.  The problem isn't that it leaves people out, but that it effectively closes off …

News Shocker: Ron Paul biggest GOP fundraiser last quarter  —  Well, it's official, ladies and gentlemen.  Believe it or not, Rep. Ron Paul, the 72-year-old Texan who hardly ever gets mentioned in Republican political news and the one-time libertarian who always gets the least time on TV debates …

Waiting for Gore  —  It feels official: Barack Obama has momentum.  He won a resounding victory in South Carolina.  He just posted another astonishing fundraising total.  Gallup reports that he's pulled to within four points of Hillary Clinton.  And Ted Kennedy's endorsement Monday had the feel of history about it.
