An overlooked fact is that with John Edwards dropping out, there is only ONE candidate that is proposing Universal Health Care which covers ALL Americans. And now Barack Obama is at it again attacking Clinton from the right because she has the audacity to fight to ensure every American.

I think Obama's comments about Reagan, both past and present, are interesting.
Reagan "transformed" politics in some ways but people seem to forget the context behind the 80's.

Just got the email from Jon Ralston. It reads:
Expected move with family members that own paper openly supporting her. So Sun helps her with endorsement and RJ helps her with backhanded Obama nod that will energize Democrats for Clinton. So now it's Culinary vs. the newspapers and Democratic elite: Maybe they are the underdog! I can hear it now....
This is a good endorsement from Clinton. The Sun is the preferred paper of Democrats in Nevada. In fact, I'd say the Sun is widely considered the main political paper in Nevada.

Jon Ralston just sent out an email saying the new Las Vegas Review Journal poll set to be released later shows Clinton up by 9. Sorry I don't have the exact numbers just the breaking news Jon Ralston is passing on. Obama is in second place though.
For what its worth the LVRJ has Romney up by 15.

Ouch. In an ironic bit of news, it turns out that Dolores Huerta, the co-Founder of United Farm Workers has endorsed Hillary Clinton.

Talk about not having any conscious. Edwards takes a cheap shot at clinton:
ohn Edwards was asked in Lakeport about reports that Hillary had teared up.
"I really don't have anything to say about that," he said. "I think what we need in a commander in chief is strength and resolve, and presidential campaigns are a tough business, but being president of the United States is also a very tough business. And the president of the United States is faced with very very difficult challenges every single day, difficult judgements every single day. What I know is that I'm prepared for that, and I'm in this fight for the middle class, foer the future of this country, for the long haul."

The last time American voters selected a movement based candidate who promised us "post partisanship" and consensus building instead of experience and a track record of production, George Bush became the 43rd president of the United States.

i can't believe the gaul behind this guy. All that time he spent talking about lobbyists being bad and then he has the stones to name a lobbyists as his NATIONAL co chair

Everyone cites the DMR poll as the Gold Standard in Iowa Caucus polling. Ann Seltzer knows more about polling than I do, but aside from whether the poll is correct, more on that later, this poll might do more to harm Obama than to help him.
To paraphrase Joe Trippi, if you're really winning this close to the election you would shut up and let expectations remain low so you can blow them away on election night. However, the DMR poll once again raises the expectations of the Obama campaign and this time raises them so high that it might have a boomerang affect if he does not surpass them.
