Looking Beyond the ‘Racial Divide’

Sen. Barack Obama’s latest, and possibly greatest, challenge is to overcome a simplistic view that the United States is hopelessly split by a racial divide that could badly damage his candidacy.

Dems Dropping the Ball on Iraq Debate

I’m afraid Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton are giving the game away to John McCain on the most important matter facing the country, the Iraq war. I hate to sound like one of those middle-aged jock-loving MSNBC pundits, but as I sit here on the sidelines I want to scream, “Quit playing defense.”

Obama and the Jews

The bad side of being a new face in politics is that your enemies can treat you like a blank slate, to be filled in with lies and slurs. That’s what is happening to Sen. Barack Obama, who is being subjected to a secretive whispering and e-mail campaign that aims to alienate him from Jewish voters by linking him to Black Muslim leader Louis Farrakhan and the Muslim religion.

A Vagueness in Obama’s Message

Hopefully, the results of the New Hampshire primary will eliminate the words hope and change from his presidential campaign.  Maybe I am too cynical or too old or too disillusioned from being burned by past failed crusades.  But words and elevated oratory are not enough for me.

The Battleground of New Hampshire

As the candidates press forward in the final hours before the state’s primary, the war and health care stand as prime issues.  But no one is fully facing up to the fact that the latter cannot be properly addressed as long as the U.S. is paying for the former.

Off the Beaten Campaign Trail

Just as the Iowa caucuses were hitting their boiling point, Truthdig’s indefatigable campaign correspondent Bill Boyarsky high-tailed it to New Hampshire to check out the next electoral battleground.  Here he takes stock of the frenetic scene he just left and looks to the future of political reporting.

God and John McCain

As he addressed a room full of members of the Iowa Christian Alliance in the small city of Cedar Falls, the senator demonstrated how hard it is for him to find his way through the tangled forest of Christian right doctrine.
