Change vs. More of the Same
Shailagh Murray and Anne E. Kornblut report from Iowa on the duel between John Edwards and Barack Obama "over which man is the true messenger of 'change' in the race for the Democratic presidential nomination -- with both drawing heavily from Bill Clinton's themes during his first campaign for the White House." Dan Balz and Michael D. Shear report on Mitt Romney's response to Mike Huckabee's Iowa surge and capture this angry response from the former Massachusetts governor, now the political underdog in the Hawkeye State, to a recent John McCain advertisement (video by Michael D. Shear):
Matthew Mosk reports on Huckabee's increasing fundraising success: "Huckabee has raised $4,755,818 on the Internet since Oct. 1 -- double what he raised from all sources during the first nine months of 2007. He has a large new cast of big-dollar bundlers. And his efforts in Iowa and elsewhere are getting a major boost from independent groups that are able to raise unlimited amounts, often without disclosing the identities of their backers." With that success has come some new problems vetting backers, as well.
And in Style, Howard Kurtz unspools a yarn about Ohio Congressman Dennis Kucinich's virtually secret autobiography and dispute with his publisher over its content and publicity efforts.
