Mike Huckabee
Friday, 2007 December 28 - 6:02 pm
Continuing my series on presidential candidates, here's my look at Mike Huckabee.

"Mike Huckabee? He's the second Republican you're writing about? Really?" Really. Of the crowded Republican field (with no less than five legitimate contenders), Huckabee is the one with all the momentum. He's leading in Iowa polls; a few months ago, that would have seemed inconceivable.

Barack Obama
Monday, 2007 December 17 - 8:05 pm
Continuing my series on presidential candidates, here's my look at Barack Obama.

And he became a Republican during the Reagan administration... again, some have accused him of switching parties merely because of career aspirations, not convictions. For his part, he says he came to view the Democratic party as "naïve".

Hillary Clinton
Friday, 2007 December 7 - 10:00 am
Well, it's getting close to the first primaries and caucuses, and look! I haven't posted my analysis of the candidates yet. So I'll start a series of articles, starting with this one, about Hillary Clinton.

I'm going to start by saying that I usually call her Hillary, like most people do. And right off the bat, that bothers me a little bit, because in our patriarchal society, we tend to call women by their first names and men by their last names. The other candidates aren't known as "John, Barack, and Dennis"; it's "Edwards, Obama, and Kucinich". But we're kind of forced to call Clinton "Hillary", to distinguish her from her famous husband.
