Sanders himself has been dismissive of Clinton’s comments. And then there’s Obama himself to consider. Clinton’s timing is conspicuous.
Polling has shown a relatively tight four-way race at the top, and a new method of reporting results could give multiple campaigns the ability to claim a win.
Warren’s shift from defense to offense has done little to quell tensions on the left — tensions that grew so acute by Thursday that a coalition of dozens of leading progressive groups felt compelled to call for a truce.
The president, ever the counterpuncher, is desperate for an enemy. Democrats are desperate for a hero. Both sides will keep flailing until they find one.
Sen. Elizabeth Warren has gotten some good news lately, the kind that suggests a candidate who’s already come back before might be able to come back again.
The question that Democrats are asking now, on the eve of the first all-white debate of the cycle, is why? Why did two high-profile black senators (Cory Booker and Kamala Harris) drop out before Iowa? Why didn’t Julián Castro, America’s most prominent Latino politician, ever crack 2 percent in the national polls? Why are all four of the remaining front-runners white? Is race the reason?

Time will tell whether the fallout from Soleimani's death will yield negative foreign-policy consequences for the U.S. But for now it appears that war with Iran isn’t one of them. That’s the best political outcome Trump could have hoped for.

He’s the 37-year-old mayor of Indiana’s fourth-largest city, yet he has risen to the top of the polls in Iowa and New Hampshire. She is the thrice-elected senior senator from a state Donald Trump nearly won in 2016, yet she has struggled to break out of the mid-single digits.
For the duration of the impeachment trial, the five Democratic senators currently running for president — Elizabeth Warren, Bernie Sanders, Amy Klobuchar, Cory Booker and Michael Bennet — won’t be able to campaign in Iowa, New Hampshire or anywhere else. Here's how they plan to handle this make-or-break moment.

Bernie Sanders is a 78-year-old Jewish senator from an overwhelmingly white state. But if he wins the Democratic nomination, he could have young Latino voters to thank.
Most pundits made two observations after Kamala Harris dropped out of the Democratic primary this week. One, since she was the only candidate of color to crack the top tier in 2019, Harris’s departure would transform the visible ranks of what had once been the most diverse presidential primary field into an all-white affair. And two, she could be a really good running mate for whoever winds up winning the nomination.
