The former president and superdelegate wouldn’t tell a Nigerian reporter which of the Democratic candidates he intends to support, but he offered a pretty good hint: “Don’t forget that [Barack] Obama won in my state of Georgia.

New York Times Up for Grabs?

For the first time in years, people around the world may be starting to have a less negative view of the United States, possibly because America is about to change its leader.

A Lack of Leadership?

The Political Wire’s Taegan Goddard argues that Howard Dean and Harry Reid’s big idea for settling the Democratic nomination should have Democrats worried about a lack of leadership in their party.
