28 Days Until the Iowa Caucuses
Mitt Romney's "Faith in America" speech is in the books and the reviews from conservative Christian leaders have been largely positive (or at least not overtly critical).
Pundits, reporters, and presidential candidates all have weighed in on the speech today but there is no way the post-game analysis can definitively answer the big question that remains: Will the speech address the concerns and answer the questions of evangelical Christian voters who have said they are uncomfortable with the idea of a Mormon president?
So how did the speech play beyond the cable television studios inside the Beltway? Romney will get his first opportunity to take the temperature of Iowa voters when he speaks at a campaign event at 1:15 pm ET in Des Moines Friday.
ABC News' John Berman reports that Romney will be talking about the military Friday and campaign aides say they have no plans to address the religion issue again.
Romney will not have to share the Hawkeye State Friday with main rival Mike Huckabee.
Huckabee, whose surge in recent Iowa polls may have made moved up the timeline the faith speech ventures beyond the Hawkeye State and has his most jam-packed campaign day yet.
Huckabee barnstorms through the Carolinas with six events over 12 hours, including a media availability and an AARP forum.
Tivo Alert! ABC News' Charles Gibson sits down with Hillary Clinton for the latest in World News' "Who Is?" series on the presidential candidates.
Clinton tells Gibson how when she was 14 years old she wrote a letter to NASA to ask what she had to do to become an astronaut.
"They said be a man. I was crushed. I couldn't believe it," Clinton said. "So I was what, eighth grade? I'd never had anybody tell me I couldn't do something because I was a girl. To have my government tell me that there was something I couldn't do because I was a girl was shocking to me."
Clinton also discusses her experiences as a student leader at Wellesley, why she was reluctant to marry Bill Clinton and how she thinks strong women are perceived in this country.
Gibson's interview airs at 6:30 pm ET tonight on World News.
As if things weren't competitive enough on the campaign trail, now it's Obama v. Clinton for a Grammy.
Former president Bill Clinton is up against the Illinois senator in the Best Spoken Word Album category – Clinton for his reading of his book "Giving: How Each of Us Can Change the World" and Obama for his reading of his book "The Audacity of Hope: Thoughts on Reclaiming the American Dream." LINK
Also competing for the Grammy: Maya Angelou, Jimmy Carter and Alan Alda.
The 50th Annual Grammy Awards will be presented on Feb. 10, 2008, after the Super Duper Tuesday primaries on Feb. 5.
Obama already has one Grammy Award. He won in the same category in 2006 for his readings of the autobiographical "Dreams of my Father."
That year he beat out Garrison Keillor, Al Franken, Sean Penn and George Carlin. Second Tivo Alert!
Grammy nominee, one of the 10 Most Fascinating People of 2007 – the only Bill Clinton is missing this week is being named as a finalist for the Heisman Award.
The former president sat down with Barbara Walters for her special, 'Barbara Walters Presents: The 10 Most Fascinating People of 2007' which will air Friday at 10 p.m. ET LINK
If his wife wins the 2008 presidential election, would the former president sit in on cabinet meetings?
"Only if asked," Clinton told Walters. "And I think it would only be wise if it were on a specific issue. I think it's better for me to give her my advice privately most of the time."
