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 …

How the Mighty Have Fallen  —  Two suicide attacks on pet markets in Baghdad today have left approximately 100 killed and twice as many wounded.  Both attacks used women “with Down's syndrome” according the the Daily Mail and less specifically, they were described as “mentally disabled” according to CNN.

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.

Romney v. McCain v. Coulter v. Obama  —  If Ann Coulter's declares again that she'd campaign for Hillary at CPAC, she will be booed and rightly so.  Not only did her grandstanding on Hannity & Colmes divert attention from the real issue before conservatives —the need to abandon the idea …

Romney's Convictions  —  Mitt Romney has emerged as the last Republican with a chance to stop John McCain, and there's no doubt he's a candidate from central casting: successful in business and politics, a family man, and quicker and more articulate than most.
