‘Left, Right & Center’: Pelosi Waffles, Obama Falters

Will Nancy Pelosi survive the onslaught of scrutiny and criticism in the wake of recent CIA torture-briefing revelations with her House speaker status intact? Is President Obama in over his head, what with all the hubbub over torture photos and military tribunals?

‘Left, Right & Center’: Bank Stress, Afghani-Paki-stan; Gay Marriage

Alert the media—banks need money! Who’s stressed, who’s reassured by the government’s test of the banks’ capitalization? Meanwhile, Pakistan is in serious danger, and Afghanistan is hardly a model of an emerging democracy. Their leaders are in Washington; what will America’s role be?

‘Left, Right & Center’: Gaza in Crisis, Barack’s Back

The challenges of this new year, or at least its initial chapter, are already quite apparent—what with the dire situation in Gaza, the sputtering global economy and a major transition under way in the United States. Barack Obama, fresh off his Hawaiian holiday, has his work cut out for him, to say the very least.

McCain Aide: Palin Doesn’t Need to Talk to the Press

According to McCain campaign strategist Nicole Wallace, it doesn’t matter if Sarah Palin talks to the press because Palin can make “her own points” in her speeches, directly to the American people, as she did in St. Paul last week. “Who cares if she can talk to Time magazine?” Wallace asks Jay Carney of, yes, Time magazine in this clip.

‘My Brother the Superdelegate’

Hollywood bigwig Ari Emanuel knows a thing or two about superdelegates. His brother, Congressman Rahm Emanuel, is one. But, as Ari writes on the Huffington Post, “as much as I love and respect him, I don’t trust him and his fellow superdelegates to decide for me and the American people who should be the Democratic nominee—and, therefore, most likely the next president of the United States.”

While mulling Hillary Clinton’s surprise win, the pundits might want to consider her turn to negative campaigning. Arianna Huffington has collected some of the more distasteful examples, including a direct mailer to New Hampshire women that falsely portrayed Barack Obama as soft on choice (he has a glowing rating from both NARAL and Planned Parenthood).

Huckabee v. Huffington

The gloves are off in a throwdown between Republican presidential candidate Mike Huckabee and Huffington Post creator Arianna Huffington over a low point in Huckabee’s career as governor of Arkansas.  The controversy concerns the Huffington Post’s coverage of the part Huckabee played in the release of serial rapist Wayne Dumond, whose time in prison clearly didn’t rehabilitate him.

Huffington Probes Pelosi on the War

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi explains to a persistent Arianna Huffington why the Democrats haven’t yet cut off funds for the war, why Mitt Romney isn’t going to be the next president and why she opposes a war tax: “This war has to end.

Clinton ‘1984’ Ad Creator (Loosely) Linked to Obama

After calling on her vast army of supporters and contributors, it was only a matter of time before Arianna Huffington was able to identify Philip de Vellis as the creator of the wildly viral (and funny) anti-Hillary commercial everybody is talking about (watch after the jump).
