The Demopathic Party

Car bombs kill 33 in Baghdad

Two car bombs exploded in an outdoor market in Baghdad on Sunday, killing at least 33 people and injuring scores in the deadliest attack since U.S. and Iraqi forces began a major security push around the capital last week.

Dole: ‘The worst political environment in history’

U.S. Sen. Elizabeth Dole has returned to the campaign trail, declaring her intentions to seek a second term in what she calls “the worst political environment in memory.”

“I am going to need your help as we rev up the campaign for 2008,” Dole, R-N.C., told supporters at a barbecue Friday.

Some had speculated whether the 70-year-old Dole would continue her political career. She recently underwent hip replacement surgery, has been slow to assemble a campaign staff and had raised only $245,016 in campaign funds at the end of 2006.
