In an interview that aired on ABC’s World News Tonight Bill Clinton denied that he is angry at Barack Obama, but offered very little in terms of an endorsement and enthusiasm for the Democratic nominee.
Energy is the topic of the week so far on the presidential campaign trail. After touring a label factory in Lafayette Hill, PA, McCain said that we must drill here, drill now, and criticized Barack Obama for not being straight with the American people.
Today in Lansing, MI Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama unveiled his energy plan and his campaign debuted a television ad that charged John McCain with being in the back pocket of big oil.
Nancy Pelosi was on ABC’s This Week and she blasted the Republican offshore drilling plan as decoy. Pelosi was asked why she won’t allow a straight up or down vote on offshore drilling. She said that Republicans are misleading the American people.
After weeks and months of punditry and media speculations on who will be the Vice Presidential picks for both John McCain and Barack Obama, it appears that the normally dull McCain campaign has made a bit of fresh news by “leaking” some new developments to the press.
The McCain campaign continued their strategy of negative attacks against Obama, but putting out a statement which implied that Obama considers himself too big of a celebrity to appear at joint town hall events with John McCain.
In a letter to the Commission on Presidential Debates, Barack Obama’s campaign manager David Plouffe seems to reject the idea of Obama and McCain engaging in a series of town hall appearances around the country.
In an interview with the St. Petersburg Times today, Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama said that he would be open to supporting some offshore drilling as part of an energy bill compromise.
At a town hall meeting on the economy in St. Petersburg, FL today Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama was confronted by some hecklers who were upset with what they viewed as Obama’s lack of a stance on issues like the Jena 6, and Sean Bell.
A new poll released this morning by Quinnipiac University found that Barack Obama leads John McCain in Florida, Ohio, and Pennsylvania, but the race is getting tighter in each state. In Florida, Obama’s lead has been cut in half from 47%-43% to 46%-44%. In Ohio, Obama has lost four points from 48%-42% down to 46%-44%.
A great deal of time and effort will be spent discussing energy in the upcoming election. I am glad to see this dialogue and think that citizens, elected officials and experts alike need to be open to learning about new approaches and policy options. A flexible mind is not a sign of flip-flopping.

In this age of immediate response politics it did not take long for the Obama campaign to put out a response to the attack ad earlier today by the McCain campaign. Obama’s ad accuses McCain of practicing the same old politics. Plus a former McCain advisor calls the Republican’s ad, “childish.”
Here is the McCain ad:
The presidential campaign of John McCain released a new ad today that compares Barack Obama’s celebrity to Brittney Spears, and claims that Obama supports higher taxes and more foreign oil. The Obama camp responded by saying Oops, he did it again, and slammed McCain’s energy policy.
Here is the McCain ad:
The House Judiciary Committee cited Karl Rove for contempt for not appearing at a July 10 committee hearing related to the politicization of the Justice Department, but as has been her habit Speaker Nancy Pelosi could block a final vote.
