Tom Edsall: Obama's Terrorism Speech: Another Break With Democratic Party Orthodoxy

"Barack Obama's August 1 speech outlining an aggressive anti-terrorist policy is part of the Illinois Senator's larger campaign strategy, demonstrating his willingness to break from liberal orthodoxy -- defying teachers' unions, proponents of racially based affirmative action, and Democratic constituencies wary of the use of force."


NY Daily News: Veep using G.I.s for gain, Hillary says

"Sen. Hillary Clinton accused Vice President Cheney of playing politics with G.I.s' lives yesterday in the latest round of her snipefest with the Bush administration and Pentagon.

"Clinton (D-N.Y.) vowed to go over Cheney's head to get a clarification from President Bush on whether he accepts congressional oversight of his Iraq policy. The feud was sparked by her request for a fill-in on troop-withdrawal contingency plans.

"'I couldn't care less what Dick Cheney says about me. But when he plays politics with the lives of our troops, you had better be sure I'm going to respond,' Clinton writes in a letter to supporters asking them to sign a letter she's sending to Bush."

NYT: In Fox News, Giuliani Finds a Friendly Stage

"Roger Ailes and Rudolph W. Giuliani have been pulling for each other for nearly two decades.

"Mr. Ailes was the media consultant to Mr. Giuliani's first mayoral campaign in 1989. Mr. Giuliani, as mayor, officiated at Mr. Ailes's wedding and intervened on his behalf when Mr. Ailes's company, Fox News Channel, was blocked from securing a cable station in the city.

"This year, they were tablemates at the White House correspondents dinner, which Mr. Giuliani attended as a guest of Fox's parent company, the News Corporation.

"Now these allies and friends find themselves on largely uncharted political turf. Mr. Giuliani, 63, is a leading Republican candidate for president. Mr. Ailes, 67, is head of Fox News, the pre-eminent media outlet for likely voters in a Republican primary."

AP: McCain's Woes Evident on Campaign Trail

"John McCain's slide in the presidential race shows up everywhere on the campaign trail.

"His staff drastically reduced and his organization nearly broke, McCain flies commercial instead of on private jets, carries his own luggage and relies on supporters to drive him to events, including one that pulled away from a Rotary meeting last week with a flat rear tire."
