The Washington Post’s Howard Kurtz uses my recent blog post on Hillary’s last hurrah (which has generated something 1150 comments) to raise the question if Clinton’s getting a bum rap from the media. I dunno. Seems like Hillary isn’t too shy herself to use the media to dish out her own set of gnarly crud. [...]
With Hillary Clinton’s national poll numbers now slipping into a double digit lag behind Obama, with her last-ditch firewalls in Ohio and Texas rapidly crumbling, her political future quickly eroding, it was the Bad Hillary who dominated in what could very well be the final presidential debate of the season Tuesday night. Thirty-five years of [...]
Those of you who have been kind enough to follow some of the detail of my personal life know that My Brilliant Daughter recently moved to Washington D.C. to continue her role in defense of the international proletariat. Today, she and some of her gal pals debut their new D.C.-based blog at Heybeus.com which I [...]
Politics is all about perception, and the perception of Ralph Nader’s first run was that of a tragedy. His redux in 2004 was more of a farce. His run this time will be doomed to be pathetic. Read the rest of my post.
The Cuban national assembly is “electing” a new president now to replace Mr. Castro. Mr Castro is set to replace him. As Raul officially succeeds Fidel, in accord with the model of dynastic communism, and as the latter slips toward the finale of his extended stint on earth, there will be many a misty-eyed farewell. [...]
Here’s some stuff that I want to share. *** First, my brief refresher report on Bob Bennett. It was deja vu all over again Thursday afternoon watching him spin like a top on MSNBC for his latest tainted client, John McCain. I felt like Paula Jones was breathing heavily on my neck. Hasn’t McCain yet [...]
Could the recent revelations about John McCain in The New York Times have any better timing — for John McCain? I think not.
Here’s my latest L.A. Weekly column: Hillary Clinton’s Can’t-Do Campaign Fear factor fails to sway Obama believers By MARC COOPER Hillary Clinton fired her coaches and swapped out her trainers. But she’s fumbled again. She’s punted through 10 states in a row. And now, with just minutes to go on the clock, she finds herself [...]
Sorry, I haven’t been posting much but have been way too busy. And thanks to those of you have asked if my health was OK. All’s fine. Never been better. Just a whole lot of work. That said, Hillary’s been pushed back to her ownÂ five yard line with about two minutes left in the [...]
No more Vuitton. No more Bordeaux. Voila, no more Fabian! I give two kisses on the cheeks to the soon-to-be-former California Speaker of the Assembly, button him up, pat him on the derriere, and pack him off into the long, dark night of political obscurity. Read all about it here.
Now that’s what one might call a heckuva coincidence. A handful of weeks ago, Bill Clinton disentangles his investment partnership with billionaire Ron Burkle, producing an estimated $20 million windfall. And now we learn that the suddenly flush Clintons are loaning Hillary’s campaign $5 million from their joint assets to bridge it through a funding [...]
Here’s my post mortem on Super Tuesday as published in my latest L.A. Weekly Column: The buzzer sounded Tuesday night and the scorecard was clear: Obama had accumulated sufficient momentum to catch up and deadlock with Clinton, but not quite enough to overtake her. Super Tuesday is a split decision â€” with Obama winning on [...]
Not quite so simple. Read this from my smart bud Micah Sifry.
I give Obama the nod on points — but several more rounds to go. Couldn’t have said it better myself. Nor this way, either. And then there’S THIS:
Delegates, shmelegates.Â It’s a near certainty that whichever candidate wins the popular vote in California is most likely to become the nominee. For Obama, California could be Gettysburg. For Hillary, how about Waterloo? Read my post here.
[Link repaired]Â Barack Obama has only one enemy left standing and it’s not Hillary Clinton. It’s time itself. All the evidence is in: the more that voters are exposed to Obama, the more they flock to him. The more they see Hillary Clinton, the more stagnant her numbers. If the election were held [...]
