In exit poll after exit poll, an overwhelming majority of Democratic voters have said they would be “comfortable” with EITHER Mr. Orbama OR Mrs. Clinton as President. So what attributes of Mr. Obama’s character are now fueling his growing popularity, and what attributes are now sinking Mrs. Clinton’s?

A Politician in a Poke?

Imagine, if you will, that you have just been awarded a new NFL franchise. One of the big things you have to do, other than coming up with gobs of money, is pick a head coach. So you look around at head coaches, assistant coaches, offensive and defensive coordinators, etc., and develop a short list of perhaps five people.

Our Elections Take Too Long And Cost Too Much

The 2008 election is ALREADY over three years old and we are still only a little bit closer to knowing who the two party’s top nominees will be.

The Democrats are, by their own admission, now feeling a “strong undercurrent of fear” if their little beauty contest between Mr. Obama and Mrs. Clinton drags on for very much longer.

Sen. Chris Dodd plans to endorse Obama

Former Democratic presidential hopeful Chris Dodd will endorse Barack Obama in his bid for the White House on Tuesday, a source close to the Obama campaign said.

Clinton heads into last-chance debate

Faltering Democrat Hillary Clinton Tuesday faced one of her last chances to derail Barack Obama’s presidential express train at their final debate before make-or-break nominating contests next week.

Marine vehicle delays cost American lives

The Marine Corps has asked the Pentagon’s inspector general to examine allegations that a nearly two-year delay in the fielding of blast-resistant vehicles led to hundreds of combat casualties in Iraq.

The system for rapidly shipping needed gear to troops on the front lines has been examined by auditors before and continues to improve, Col. David Lapan, a Marine Corps spokesman, said Monday night. Due to the seriousness of the allegations, however, “the Marine Corps has taken the additional step” of requesting the IG investigation, Lapan said in an e-mailed statement.

Democrats see a train wreck coming

Remember the political teeth-gnashing eight years ago when Democrat Al Gore won the popular vote for president only to lose to Republican George W. Bush in the Electoral College after weeks of disputed vote-counting in Florida and contradictory decisions by the Florida and U.S. supreme courts?

Names may change but corruption remains

It didn’t all start with Watergate — the age of Washington ethical lapses, that is — and the ghosts of earlier scandals still haunt the halls of Congress.

Back in the ’60s following a Senate scandal of huge proportions, first the upper chamber of Congress and then the House decided to establish bipartisan committees to convince the public that lawmakers took ethics seriously. Until that time, allegations of ethics violations were handled by standing committees controlled by the majority party.
