Obama Campaigners Work the Switchboards

If the Illinois senator beats Hillary Clinton and the others for the nomination, a good portion of credit will go to the volunteers now making phone calls in Iowa, New Hampshire, South Carolina, California and other places.

Deconstructing Rudy

As mayor of New York, Rudy Giuliani honed his skills in creating a public persona that obscured some of his less savory behind-the-scenes activities.  But now, Giuliani’s facing serious resistance from the likes of filmmaker Robert Greenwald, who’s turning his lens on the wily GOP candidate in a series of Web-ready shorts.

Such Fickle Political Lovers

America’s political correspondents are enchanted with Clinton, but their passion might fade when voters start asking her hard questions about her hawkish view of the Iraq war.

Could Gore Be a Contender?

I don’t know Al Gore’s plans, but here’s what I’d tell him to do if he wants to be president: Ignore New Hampshire and Iowa.  Hope Hillary fizzles.  Bet the house on early February when the big states have their primaries, and he could win the biggest, California.

Bridging the Democratic Divide

If a Democrat wins the next presidential election, she or he will have to tackle battles abroad—and, no less significantly, at home.  Boyarsky predicts that, after ending the Iraq war, a Democratic president would “immediately be confronted with domestic issues that have no Democratic consensus, issues in which debate is charged with deep feelings about national, ethnic and racial identity.”
