Before 9/11, Rudy Giuliani was known in the national media for his bad break up with his second wife Donna Hanover amid accusations of infidelity with a member of his staff (Cristyne Lategano) and a sales manager (Judith Nathan). After 9/11, Giuliani became known as America’s Mayor for his performance in leading New York City [...]

When Mitt Met Hillary

When Hillary Clinton and Mitt Romney ran into each other yesterday in Iowa, they smiled for the cameras. Both Presidential hopefuls hoped this wouldn’t be their last encounter – and, if current polling in Iowa can be extrapolated to national trends (and Kerry clearly showed us last year that it can), then this match up [...]

A recent MTV poll found that 68% of young Americans would vote for a candidate who has used marijuana. Good news for Obama. 25% would vote for a gay candidate, but only 22% would vote for a candidate who has used cocaine (bad news for Tom Tancredo). 41% of youngsters have favorable opinions of Hillary [...]

It has been a busy couple of weeks for all those folks runnin’ for President! Of course, everyone has something to say about Bush’s decision to commute ol’ Scooter’s sentence (you can find a detailed and thought-provoking run down here, courtesy of DryFlyPolitics). Then, yesterday, the final fundraising numbers for the previous quarter came in. [...]

McCain’s Impending Implosion?

John McCain’s campaign announced that it’s laying off at least 50 staffers and only has 2 million dollars on hand. It’s second quarter fund-raising numbers are as abysmal as his first quarters. Back in April, McCain reported raising 13 million dollars, with about 5 million on hand and 2 million in debt. Now, the campaign [...]

I am floored by the quality of the Election 2008 Tracker, which is not only comprehensive and fair, but also more accessible than similar trackers on other blogs. I am, however, disappointed that the aggregate numbers include Rasmussen – which often “finds” that arbitrary candidates have impossibly high support (ie: Thompson in the GOP field, [...]

I uploaded both the Republican and Democratic polls over at the Election 2008 Tracker. Try clicking on the charts to see a bigger view, I’m testing a new script that should add a pretty neat effect to the pictures when you click on them. In the democrat’s poll, you can see a clear-cut frontrunner (Clinton) [...]

YouTube 4 President

YouTube has been big for years, but today it outdid itself. The announcement of the YouTube/CNN debate and the viral Obamagirl video both spread like wildfire around the blogosphere and even the mainstream media. Anderson Cooper and the crew at CNN have decided to throw together a new debate format that is sure to change [...]

8:00: Larry King is scheduled to have some big guests soon, but I’m done liveblogging for the night. 8:00: The debate is over. 7:57: They are glorifying Reagan. Romney is totally dodging the issue. I’m not impressed. Hunter made some crazy claims against McCain, Romney, and Giuliani. I dont know if any of them really [...]

GOP Debate

Yao had a pretty interesting preview of the GOP debate coming up tomorrow night. Here are the top 5 things I’m looking forward to. 5) God- No one doubts that every candidate will talk about their faith. Mitt Romney isn’t going to have any trouble making his faith compatible with the republican base, but I [...]
