Strange Rumblings From McClellan

  • 12:09 pm Thursday, May 29th, 2008 by Jamie Dupree

I will say once again, that of all the visible people who have worked in the White House during the George W. Bush Administration, I think Scott McClellan would never have been my choice to write a tell-all insider book. Clearly, he must have been personally crushed that he was …

Florida and Michigan

In any Presidential campaign, there are gambits, gimmicks and more that are used by each side in the heat of battle.  Most of them go nowhere, but sometimes they catch on. This week John McCain and the national Republican Party joined in a two pronged attack on Barack Obama over …

More Presidential Fundraising

After doing one event with John McCain, President Bush will headline two more fundraisers for the GOP standard bearer today in Utah. Yesterday’s event in Phoenix wasn’t seen by TV cameras or reporters (of course that didn’t stop a major leak about Barack Obama earlier this year) as McCain and …

From Our Listener Mailbag

  • 8:12 pm Tuesday, May 27th, 2008 by Jamie Dupree

Every day that goes by, I sometimes wonder, why is it taking so long for Barack Obama to wrap up the Democratic nomination?  Wednesday didn’t move the ball down the field very much on the Democratic Delegate Scoreboard, as we wait for the Illinois Senator to finally end this race.Obama …

One thing that email has done is make the back and forth of the presidential campaign even speedier, which must be why my Blackberry battery is shot by 2 pm every day.   One of the many examples came on Tuesday, as the Republican National Committee grabbed onto news reports …
