Hate Springs Eternal  —  In 1956 Adlai Stevenson, running against Dwight Eisenhower, tried to make the political style of his opponent's vice president, a man by the name of Richard Nixon, an issue.  The nation, he warned, was in danger of becoming “a land of slander and scare …

Not Ready For Prime Time  —  Barack Obama appeared on 60 Minutes last night, and once again he offered change.  Unfortunately, the kind of change offered appeared to be the same he accuses his opponents of offering — waffling on the status of troops in Iraq.

Clinton dismisses weekend losses  —  WHITE MARSH, Maryland (CNN) — Hillary Clinton on Monday explained away Barack Obama's clean sweep of the weekend's caucuses and primaries as a product of a caucus system that favors “activists” and, in the case of the Louisiana primary, an energized African-American community.

Rove's Awesome Election Analysis  —  Rove was on Face the Nation yesterday, expressing confidence that John McCain would have no trouble uniting the Republican party in time to defeat the Democratic nominee in the fall.  The intraparty squabbling, said Rove, was a hiccup; in 2000 …
Paul Kiel / Muckraker:
Huck Plays The USSR Card  —  In a race that's been marked by GOPers noisily competing to claim the mantle of Reaganism, Mike Huckabee seized an easy opportunity on CNN this morning to resurrect the old foe: “That is not what we do in American elections... Maybe that's how they used to conduct …
John Fund / Wall Street Journal:
Getting to 270  —  Can John McCain win in November?  —  The conventional wisdom is that Republicans start at a serious disadvantage in trying to hold the White House.  A still-unpopular war and a softening economy certainly represent challenges.  So far, most of the enthusiasm in the primaries …

My Brother the Superdelegate and Why I Don't Trust Him to Pick the Next President  —  My brother Rahm Emanuel is a superdelegate.  I love my brother, and I trust my brother.  But I gave up letting my brother dictate my life since he determined whether he got the top or bottom bunk in our bedroom back in Chicago.

Did Bill Sink Hill on Purpose?  —  Before I explain, let me say that I'm not a (Bill) Clinton hater.  I actually like the guy.  I've grown nostalgic for the Clinton years.  The economy was booming.  He was the most free trade president we've had in a long, long time (certainly more free trade than this one).
