SIGNS OF LIFE IN CLINTON CAMP
Hotline is reporting today that things aren't quite as stagnant in the Hillary Clinton camp as they would seem.
The Web site reports aides to the New York senator are quietly interviewing possible mid-and upper-level staffers for a presidential campaign.
Hotline speculates Clinton is waiting for Illinois Sen. Barack Obama to decide whether he's running before Clinton makes a final decision.
A WIDE TENT FOR OBAMA
What do rapper Ludacris and evangelical pastor Rick Warren have in common?
Both have been visited by Sen. Obama this week.
The Associated Press reports Obama and Luedacris met in Chicago on Wednesday to talk about "empowering youth."
Today, as the AP reports, Obama is attending Warren's megachurch in California for the pastor's Global Summit on AIDS.
McCAIN CUTS IN ON ROMNEY
Mitt Romney is governor of Massachusetts and head of the Republican Governors Association, which is holding its annual meeting down in Florida.
John McCain is neither of those things, but he too is attending the conference in Doral, Fla.
The New York Times reports today McCain set up shop at the convention in an effort to compete with Romney for the attention of the governors, who will play an important part in the presidential race in 2008.
McCain has already joined the race and Romney's official entry is expected shortly after the holidays.
