Clinton on Bush and Boiled Frogs

Campaigning in locales as different as Hattiesburg, Miss. and Cheyenne, Wyo. today, Sen. Hillary Clinton stuck with the same colloquialism that she began using way back in Iowa to make a point about President Bush's energy policy.--Krissah Williams

Puerto Rico Democrats Seek to Change Contest

Democrats in Puerto Rico have decided to change their contest from a caucus to a primary, and are seeking permission to move it up six days to occur on June 1. The switches would potentially increase the island's role in the Democratic nominating process -- and give the candidates a rare excuse to campaign legitimately in the tropics.--Anne E. Kornblut

Obama Team Charges 'Double Standard' on Adviser Statements

Barack Obama's campaign, which has been spending more time than it would like discussing the utterances of its academic advisers, this afternoon downplayed the recent suggestion of its newly-departed foreign policy adviser that Obama's pledge to withdraw combat troops from Iraq within 16 months was less than hard and fast.--Alec MacGillis

McCain's Bush Burden

President Bush was in a jaunty mood when he welcomed John McCain to the White House on Wednesday. He waited with unusual patience for the late-arriving McCain, even doing a little soft-shoe routine for the press. He seemed liberated from the burdens of the presidency and raring to get back on the campaign trail.--Dan Balz

Obama Adviser Critical of Clinton Resigns

CHICAGO - Samantha Power, an outspoken foreign policy advisor to Sen. Barack Obama (D-Ill.), stepped down this morning after calling Sen.

A Joint Ticket? Not so Fast

So is the Democratic race heading toward an eventual marriage between Sens. Barack Obama and Hillary Rodham Clinton on the same ticket? Clinton seemed to suggest that herself during a morning show appearance yesterday and there has been a lot of buzz about the idea among Democrats and bloggers. But before anyone starts throwing confetti, there are lots of reasons to wonder whether that might or should happen. --Peter Baker
