Republican Snowe Drops Out of the Battle for the Senate

One of the few moderate Republicans left in Congress, if not the universe, Sen. Olympia Snowe said she has decided not to run for re-election because of “an atmosphere of polarization and ‘my way or the highway’ ideologies” in politics and government.

Obama’s Tenuous Lead

If the election were held right now, President Obama would likely win by about the same margin that propelled him into office in 2008. But how fragile are his current advantages?

The former GOP front-runner seemed to enjoy the spotlight, so it comes as some surprise that he rebuffed ABC when it offered to let him cha-cha among other B-list (and below) celebrities on “Dancing With the Stars.” Apparently he does not have moves like Jagger and/or Tom DeLay.
