Blog Nightline Guest post by Grey Via Jake Tapper, a report filed by Brinda Adhikari of ABC News covers Al Sharpton’s reaction to the Obama/Wright affair: “When asked how the African-American community at large would respond to Sen.

Clinton and O’Reilly Part Three and Final Flawless. Your $25 is worth $50 until midnight! Last chance!
by Paul Szep The first headline of its kind from the traditional media comes from ABC, and is at the top of the “Headlines” above. It says it all: Wright Raising Questions About Obama’s Electability. Only one thing can change this creeping reality and it’s big wins in North Carolina and Indiana. It’s an understatement [...]
Obama’s Reaction to Pro Clinton 527 guest post by MABlue Okay, so it’s not technically a "guest post," but it definitely deserves the nod. It’s what reader and TM LIVE! listener MABlue put in the comment section in response to what I reported on radio today: Barack Obama’s campaign has filed a formal complaint over [...]
It’s on until midnight eastern pacific time tonight. Give if you’ve got it. Your $25 is worth $50 until midnight! Last chance!
If it’s an election, there is pandering. That doesn’t mean it won’t sway voters. It also doesn’t mean that short-term relief has anything to do with long-term plans, which includes Hillary Clinton stumping for a gas tax holiday. “She has been criticized by her opponent and by others, who say, ‘Oh, it is just pandering [...]
Click on the demand feature, then select the video at the right. Of course she’s correct, because a lot is at stake: Hillary Rodham Clinton said Tuesday it would be “the height of political foolishness” for Democrats to back a Republican, or not vote at all, if they’re disappointed by the outcome of the long-running [...]
Obama’s sudden divorce from Rev. Wright is curious. After all, he’d already denounced Wright’s comments. So why the sudden press conference? It’s not like it’s going to quiet the controversy. … .. Obama’s Wright compulsion drove him to deliver a defensive and apologetic so-called race speech in which Wright was the centerpiece. Next, he denounced [...]
Blog Nightline guest post by Grey Rules are rules are rules, unless they turn around to bite you. This morning, Craig Crawford took the Democratic rules for a ride and parked them in the forbidden zone: “The mandatory penalties set forth by the Democratic National Committee’s delegate selection rules call for outlaw states like Florida [...]
I love this endorsement. Nothing like a southern gentleman’s charms. Of course, I appreciate this type of genuflecting to girls, though I realize others do not. For me, it doesn’t interfere with my feminism. I appreciate the sentiment behind it. We love you, North Carolinians! Meanwhile, Rush proves his ego knows no bounds. A Michigan [...]
It’s that time of day. Time to relax and kick back. Also to take advantage of the current matching money drive over at Clinton’s place. Early evening open thread. Don’t throw your drinks! Your $25 is worth $50 until midnight! (eastern time) Give if you’ve got it!
Imagine this playing out across the country in local races for Congress. Dems running for Congress stiff-arming Obama if he’s the nominee. Hey, but many people think Clinton won’t be embraced either. Those people haven’t looked at her blue collar numbers lately, which are soaring. Open thread. While you’re at it, double your fundraising impact. [...]
Missourian Rep. Ike Skelton, chairman of the House Armed Services Committee, has endorsed Hillary Clinton. Skelton is one of those average, lunch bucket Democrats, who live in the rural midwest. He’s also a national security leader, another one on Clinton’s side. But if you’re wondering why Obama stepped up today to “divorce” Rev. Wright, as [...]
“Whatever relationship I had with Reverend Wright has changed as a consequence of this,” Obama said. Obama’s candidacy is in freefall. So Operation Save My Superdelegate Support begins. Reverend Wright has made Mr. Down Ticket Asset into Mr. Down Ticket Drag. Superdelegates are also wondering what Wright will mean in November for an Obama general [...]
Buy Sidney’s book. Charlie Cook: One superdelegate in a Southern state, clearly a Clinton sympathizer, said it would be political suicide for him to oppose Obama, pointing out that the black community would be furious. The best support he could offer Clinton would be to remain neutral until it’s over. One of the most salient [...]

THE 21st century world offers ways to tweak your appearance, or alter it altogether, with women finally able to combat directly the comparison that’s always been around. Men look distinguished as they age, while women look old, unattractive, or to use Rush Limbaugh’s favorite comment, who wants to look at a woman with wrinkles? The 2012 plastic surgery statistics are out and the American Society of Plastic Surgery tells the story.
The real question about Hillary is this: When people take a new look at her in the coming years, will they see the past or the future — Mrs. Clinton or Madam President? – Maureen Dowd IT’S A classic front page from Huffington Post, coupled with a post by Jason Linkins, which details what’s been going on.

Great sex doesn’t always just happen. Sometimes, it takes a little planning, especially if — like many Americans — you’ve been in a bit of a sex rut. Do some prep work by turning your bedroom into a love nest: Make the bed (with new, or at least clean, sheets), tidy up, light a candle or two, and queue up a sexy playlist on your iPod.

“Last night I interviewed Jill Stein the presidential candidate for the Green Party on this show. And I confess right now, I should have asked her to just get out of the race.” – Jennifer Granholm, “The War Room” [Current TV] THE ARGUMENT Jennifer Granholm makes above is a tactic that no longer fits the times.
“With that drum magazine, he could have gotten off 50, 60 rounds, even if it was semiautomatic, within one minute,” Chief Oates said. [New York Times] IN THE GAPING MAW of our leadership vacuum stands Aurora Police Chief Daniel Oates, whose resolve, vulnerability and humility inside the vortex of a man made hell revealed what nobody in Congress or either political party has shown in decades. Leadership without regard to anything but his own duty to the people, which included the cops in the eye of volcanic carnage.
“Rick Doblin has done a lot for the field, but he is more of a populist,” Grob says. “We need careful and controlled scientific studies showing the efficacy of these drugs so funding can continue.” Broader awareness of these sorts of end-of-life psychedelic studies could be good for everyone, the researchers say.

The interview with Obama by George Stephanopoulos wasn’t nearly as contentious as the interview with the Edwardses. No Republican talking points from Stephanopoulos yesterday, like when he accused Edwards of abandoning the troops with this beauty: “Do you think the Democrats should be saddled with the idea of completely cutting off funding for the troops?” Or this one: “You know, a lot of Democrats still in the Senate think that your position here is cynical political theater.
