Obama, McCain Move to Own Iraq -- From Different Directions


The calendar mess is getting messier: Democrats in Michigan and Florida want the Democratic National Committee to crack down on New Hampshire -- which is all but certain to move up its primary from Jan. 22 -- with the same threats (losing convention delegates) that they're facing. "The DNC's silence about New Hampshire contrasts markedly with the repeated warnings delivered to Florida over a six-month period before Florida even submitted its delegate selection plan to the Rules and Bylaws Committee," the Florida and Michigan Democratic congressional delegations wrote in a letter yesterday to DNC Chairman Howard Dean, per ABC News.

The kicker:

"I said, 'My real name is Wendy,' and he said, 'Oh my God.' " -- Wendy Yow Ellis, a self-described former prostitute, recounting the sentence she said ended her relationship with Sen. David Vitter, R-La. Vitter is married to Wendy Baldwin Vitter.

"I think that we should not have had this discussion on 9/11 or 9/10 or 9/12." -- Obama, at yesterday's Senate Foreign Relations Committee hearing, less than 24 hours before announcing his new Iraq plan on 9/12.

"I'd much rather be back in Iraq. . . . It's much safer." -- Col. Steve Boylan, Petraeus' spokesman, during a break in yesterday's congressional testimony.
