Feb. Not the Shortest Month for Obama

Though March dealt him some disappointments, February was very good to Barack Obama.

Bush Backs McCain

Republicans are starting to line up behind their nominee, including the president, who officially gave his blessing at the White House on Wednesday, along with an offer to help John McCain campaign.
