Monday's Top 10 Political Blogs

The run-up to the primary race was long and at times boring. The wait might have been worth it, because the race from here will be exciting. The Republican nomination is anyone's game at this point. If Fred Thompson wins South Carolina next week, five candidates become viable.

On the Democratic side, there has been a rush in the media to anoint Barack Obama the winner. Let's keep our heads. If Obama fails to win California and the populous states in the Northeast, he will not win the nomination.

Democrats

Josh Marshall at talkingpointsmemo.com puzzles through Hillary Clinton's frantic spin-doctoring after the Democratic debate. He figures her campaign never prepared for this moment of crisis. Is a shake-up within the campaign coming before the Feb. 5 primaries?

Kevin Drum blogs about the press and its treatment of Clinton. He's sickened by the pack journalism that has led reporters to decide to attack Clinton rather than do their jobs of reporting.

Michael Fauntroy guest blogs at taylormarsh.com. He suggests that the Democrats not miscategorize Obama's win in Iowa as historic for black politicians. He reminds readers that a black candidate has won primaries before: Jesse Jackson in 1984 and 1988.

Matt Stoller was struck by a particular point in the Democratic debate, wherein, he says, Clinton came across as a fighter and a hard worker. If she can cast herself as a fighter, Stoller contends, this message could resonate with voters.
