Once Again, It’s Close

As the dust settles from Tuesday’s “national primary,” we know two things: John McCain is the Republican front-runner and the Democrats still have a race on their hands. Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama swapped states all night. Obama won more states overall, but Hillary took home the big prizes of California and New York. Updated

Obama Takes Georgia

Record numbers of African-Americans came out to vote for Sen. Barack Obama in Georgia’s Democratic primary on Tuesday, giving Obama a big win at the kickoff of a long evening of waiting for other states’ results.

Super Oprah Saves Desperate Voter

When Oprah Winfrey heard that a woman at a precinct next door wasn’t allowed to vote, she pledged to stay with the frustrated voter until she got to cast her ballot: “She [Winfrey] just kind of stood there and then as soon as I got to vote she left and she said, ‘I’ll call you later to make sure that you voted.’ And probably about an hour later I was sitting at my desk and she called my cell phone.”

Clinton Prepares for Fox News Debate

Perhaps regardless of Tuesday’s election results, Sen. Hillary Clinton is looking toward the next debate opportunity—this time sponsored by Fox News—on Feb. 11. Barack Obama, however, hasn’t agreed yet to appear on the conservative channel.

California’s All-Nighter

All eyes are on California on this Super Tuesday, but the Golden State might try everyone’s patience with a vote count that could stretch into the morning hours. The state, which is expecting a record turnout, recently switched back to paper ballots—good for its democratic process but bad for its sleepy friends on the East Coast.

Fact-Checking Clinton’s ‘35 Years of Change’

Hillary Clinton has made much of her “35 years” of “working to bring positive change to people’s lives,” but when McClatchy’s Washington bureau investigated the claim, it found that the “bulk of her career” was spent “at one of Arkansas’ most prestigious corporate law firms, where she represented big companies and served on corporate boards.”

New York Double-Books Football Parade, Election

In case you haven’t heard, the New York Giants whipped the New England Patriots in the Super Bowl on Sunday. It was a major upset that earned them one of those grand New York City ticker-tape parades, to take place on Tuesday. Which raises the question: How will millions of New Yorkers clogging the subways, blocking the streets and flocking to the “Canyon of Heroes” affect Tuesday’s other big event, the election?

Being Mrs. McCain

The UK’s Times Online certainly chose a very particular frame for its profile of John McCain’s wife, Cindy, as evidenced by the headline: “Flawed Cindy McCain Has a Grudge List.”  Further down, Mrs. McCain gets a bit more credit when writer Tony Allen-Mills predicts she’d make a “formidable but flawed first lady.” There appears to be a pattern at work here.

It’s an Air War

There’s a reason campaigns are more expensive than ever: commercials. Although they try, the candidates can’t be in every Super Tuesday state at the same time, and the most effective way of reaching millions of people in one state is the same for politicians as it is for Tylenol. Even Barack Obama, who has bet big on his grass-roots organization, spent around $4 million on ads in the last week of January.
