Kucinich's Wife, Getting Out The Vote

Put her in a video on his Web site, of course! The campaign Web site of Rep. Dennis Kucinich (D-Ohio), the two-time presidential candidate and diminutive vegan, prominently features his wife, Elizabeth Kucinich....

Karl Rove, Wedding Crasher?

It should be the happiest, most care-free day of her life. But we can't help but wonder if Rep. Stephanie Herseth (D-S.D.) will be nervously looking over her shoulder Saturday for White House counsellor Karl Rove when she's scheduled to walk down the aisle. Rep. Herseth and her fiancé are on alert for a possible sneak attack by Karl Rove this weekend. (AP Photo) According...

Rove Raps At Radio-TV Follies

Sen. Jim Webb (D-Va.), whose gun is in police custody, wore a sheepish grin. Potential presidential candidate Fred Thompson's wife, Jeri, wore a conspicuously conservative crewneck dress. Words, and even this photo, do this scene no justice. You'll just have to watch the video. (AP Photo) And presidential consiglieri Karl Rove? He wore an alter ego. Rove, well aware that these affairs are overly produced,...

Kerry: A Little Revenge on Swift Boaters

Sen. John Kerry (D-Mass.) finally got a taste of revenge for the "Swift Boating" attacks that marred his 2004 presidential campaign. Facing defeat in the Senate, the White House today pulled the ambassadorial nomination of über Republican donor Sam Fox, who gave $50,000 in 2004 to Swift Boat Veterans for Truth, the controversial group that ran a smear campaign questioning Kerry's Vietnam military record and,...

Fred Thompson: Man About Town

That Fred Thompson really gets around! After having lunch Monday at the Mayflower hotel restaurant with Republican Party master strategist Ed Gillespie, the actor and former Tennessee senator met for three hours that day at the same location with former Senate Majority Leader Bill Frist, also of Tennessee. The back-to-back meetings underscore just how serious Thompson is about mulling a run for the presidency. And...

Winning the Amazon.com Primary...

Guess which new author in the Senate is obsessively checking his Amazon rankings? Hint: The senator who isn't running for president. The 2004 Democratic presidential candidate is now running for best-selling author. (Getty Images) Yep, Sen. John Kerry (D-Mass.), author of the new book, This Moment on Earth: Today's New Environmentalists and Their Vision for the Future. Kerry probably wouldn't admit it, but he and...

Fred Thompson: More Than Flirting With Presidential Bid

Looks like Fred Thompson really isn't teasing about possibly running for president. The actor and former Republican senator from Tennessee was spotted having lunch today at the see-and-be-seen Mayflower hotel restaurant with GOP Party guru Ed Gillespie, the former chairman of the Republican National Committee who has advised and groomed many a successful GOP candidate over the years. Sources say Thompson, currently of "Law and...
