Pure Horserace: Gingrich Gets Going
CBS News - 1 hour ago
(CBS) While former House Speaker Newt Gingrich remains steadfast in putting off a decision on running for president until late September, he appears to be working to insure a continued presence in political circles until he does so.
Everyone seems to want to wait until September. Iraqi's government wanted to take a two month summer vacation, and the American politicians give themselves an Iraqi policy vacation with the SURGE. Can't think about pulling out in the middle of a surge. Hey, it could work, but we won't know until September.

Of course, the success of any normal thing which surges can be determined early on. In other words, what's so different about in August? Well, the only thing which changes is politics. Situations stay the same, but just a little time can be politically seismic. So Gore and Gingrich will wait to sweep their parties until late. And both with a message of moral certitude against the evils of the media circus which the rest of their parties had brutalized themselves to impress.

To brutal to enter, to brutal to leave.
And so Edwards unfurled a zinger that navigated around the fact that senators Hillary Rodham Clinton, D-N.Y., and Barack Obama, D-Ill., shared his position by both voting against Iraq war funding 10 days ago: "There is a difference between leadership and legislating."
But where does Edwards go with this campaign message? On his left stands Obama, who shut down Edwards' attack with an icy response that reminded viewers that both Edwards and Clinton voted for the Iraq war: "You're about 4 1/2 years late on leadership on this issue."
