Romney: Winning Votes, Not Love

Mitt Romney is grinding his way to the Republican presidential nomination not by winning hearts but by imposing his will on a party that keeps resisting him.

Everyone Loses in a War With Iran

On Super Tuesday, the most important matter facing the country was not who will win the Republican presidential nomination but whether Israel will drag the United States into a war with Iran.

Fearful GOP May Hope for a Brokered Convention

Republicans haven’t quite thrown away what they see as a winnable presidential election, at least not yet. But they’re trying their best.

McCain’s Attention Deficit

While the spotlight is starting to singe the Democrats, it’s true that Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama have gotten heaping doses of attention compared with the supposed media darling, John McCain. Here’s one indication: The covers of Time and Newsweek have featured the face of an Obama or a Clinton eight times since Super Tuesday.

Clinton Looks Ahead

Sen. Hillary Clinton is focusing on the high points of the last week—her Super Tuesday successes in weighty states like New York and California, for example—and looking to potential wins in Texas and other elections to hold her position in the race for the Democratic nomination in coming weeks.

Huckabee Hangs On

If one thing is clear after last week’s Super Tuesday craziness, it’s that candidates who seemed to score big want to claim victory as a foregone conclusion, while others who didn’t show quite as strongly—like Mike Huckabee, for example—want to challenge the finality of the results.

The Common Enemy

After Super Tuesday, Democrats are worrying that a long Clinton-Obama contest might irreparably damage the party’s prospects in November. But, as longtime political reporter and former Los Angeles Times City Editor Bill Boyarsky points out, the bigger threat is a McCain-Huckabee ticket.

Obama Ahead in Delegate Count?

Super Tuesday’s aftermath is certainly providing a good crash course in American electoral politics as the results are sorted out. The latest surprising twist involves Barack Obama’s camp claiming a slight lead over Hillary Clinton in the total number of delegates racked up. Officially, the final count has not been determined yet.

Super Speeches for a Super Tuesday

Perhaps because neither Obama, Clinton nor McCain won a crushing victory, the top candidates’ post-Super Tuesday speeches repeated earlier themes, though with renewed focus on each other. McCain’s breathy tribute to himself would be the exception.

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

Super Tuesday Results

Here are the results from the big night. The voters threw us a few surprises, but after a bumpy night, we appear to be back at square one.

ScarJo 4 Obama!

Hey there, independent voters—would a (prerecorded) phone call from sultry starlet Scarlett Johansson persuade you to head to the polls on Tuesday and cast a vote for her fave candidate, Barack Obama? Johansson certainly hopes so, so don’t ignore those numbers you don’t recognize on your caller ID—it could be robo-ScarJo!

Hillary on Coulter

Clinton Cracks Wise About Coulter

It’s endorsement mania in these final hours before Super Tuesday, and here’s Hillary Clinton taking news of Ann Coulter’s offhanded endorsement in stride, shooting a quick joke back at the “Inside Edition” reporter who apparently hoped to freak her out by cornering her with his Coulter question and his cameraman’s assertive use of his zoom function.

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?

Oprah Zeroes In on California Women

This weekend, Sen. Barack Obama is unleashing a secret weapon in the final push to win Tuesday’s California primary: Oprah Winfrey. Team Obama partly attributes his successes in Iowa and South Carolina to her influence, which he’s hoping will help convince California women to choose him over Hillary Clinton.
