Hillary Clinton also had a great month. She raised $34,466,631. For poor John McCain, the money just isn't coming in very quickly.
This week's Democratic radio address was delivered by Sen. Bob Menendez (D-NJ) and focused on the beginning the fifth anniversary of the Iraq war, and its costs at home and abroad.

Ron Paul will never be considered a quote machine; in fact on the surface it appears a little odd to some that this 71 year old man became the cult figure of the 2008 campaign. I think his appeal lies in the fact that candidates such as John McCain pretend to be mavericks, while Ron Paul is the real deal.

In the Clinton administration, Richardson was the U.S.

I love both politics, and the spoken/written word. I can appreciate a great quote, even if I personally disagree with what the speaker is saying.

This is a strategy aimed at the general election. "The mistakes in Iraq are not the responsibility of our men and women in uniform but of their Commander-in-Chief.
The White House has released early excerpts of a speech President Bush will be giving at the Pentagon on Wednesday to mark the fifth anniversary of the beginning of the war in Iraq.

In a video posted on his website almost two weeks ago, Republican Rep. Ron Paul hinted at the obvious. With John McCain clinching the GOP nomination, his presidential campaign is over. The Ron Paul phenomenon of 2008 is interesting because it revealed a great deal about where the Republican Party has been, and quite possibly where it is going.
A new Quinnipiac University poll of the state of Pennsylvania released today found that Hillary Clinton has widened her lead over Barack Obama to 12 points.

The members of the new women's online community wowOwow.com voted on which four women they would like to see on Mt. Rushmore. As a man, I think that three of the choices make perfect sense.
