Spin Control

Wednesday’s quickie political briefing

Today's videos

Today's theme: The longer the Democratic presidential nomination fight goes on, the longer the candidates have to say things they likely wish they hadn't.

Exhibit A: Barack Obama's remark that his uncle helped liberate Auschwitz in World War II draws some truth-squad attention on Tuesday.

Exhibit B: Hillary Clinton's Friday remark on Robert F. Kennedy's assassination ruffles some feathers. (A few days old, yes, but as yet untouched by Spin Control).

And now for the headlines

  • Democratic lawyers say rules don’t allow panel to reseat all Florida, Michigan delegates
  • All 3 presidential candidates pledge to seek an end to violence in Darfur if elected

  • Obama trails Clinton with key voters but is competitive with those groups against McCain

  • Obama picks superdelegates in Colo., Ore. and Guam
