The story behind McCain’s first divorce is heartbreaking. It will be interesting to see how this plays out in the campaign.
Bob Barr’s Libertarian campaign for president is already having an impact.
Another former Bush insider turns on the Bush administration. In an incredible memoir, former press secretary Scott McClellan doesn’t pull any punches, discussing how the Bush administration was not “open and forthright on Iraq,” and took a “permanent campaign approach” to governing at the expense of candor and competence.
Anyone who was paying attention during the Bush presidency knew that McClellan was feeding the press and the American people incorrect information for years. Frankly, he wasn’t very good at it.
Again, Bush will go down as one of the worst presidents in American history. With this book, Scott McClellan helps to tell the sad story.
It’s refreshing to see a Democratic nominee who isn’t afraid to speak his mind about Cuba. Most Democrats run scared on this issue, but they always lose this vote to the GOP. The views in the Cuban-American community are changing, particularly among the young who question the policies that have changed mothing in Cuba.
Obama engaged McCain on this issue by promising to ease travel restrictions and the ability to transfer money.
This change will be very popular, even among older, more conservative Cuban-Americans who resent the tough travel restrictions. Obama has a tough road ahead of him in Florida, but this policy battle will help. Also, expect him to hit McCain hard later in the campaign on Social Security privatization.
With the latest poll in Ohio showing an Obama lead over McCain, Kos takes a look at how the electoral map is shaping up for November. So far, things look good for Obama.
Peggy Noonan blasts today’s pathetic Republican Party. She’s not saying anything new. She just has a way with words, and her essay sums up the problems nicely.
These problems, however, have been apparent for years, and even Peggy has been late to the party. In Kansas in 2006, old Republicans bolted from the party and won seats as Democrats.
The Republicans deserve to get crushed in the fall. If that happens, it will be the best possible result for the party (and the country).
This is hilarious!

Obama is gearing up for the fall, as he goes after McCain regarding Hamas.
“Losing his bearings.” I love that line.
Both the Senate race and the presidential race are closer than one might expect.
