News from the Democratic Side

I've been working the phones this afternoon, and here are a few tidbits of what I am hearing:

1) In the wake of a big loss in New Hampshire, a major shake-up will be announced at the senior strategist-level of Hillary Clinton's campaign, in which she will bring in Paul Begala and James "The Ragin' Cajun" Carville.

Nothing like a little star power for these political races. Obama has Oprah. Huckabee has Chuck Norris. Fred Thompson has John Rich and Gretchen Wilson. Come tomorrow, Clinton will have Gollum.

2) Nevada's largest union, the Culinary Union, will endorse Obama tomorrow. This might cause Clinton to skip Nevada and concentrate on South Carolina and the Super Tuesday states.

3) Both rumors regarding Clinton's money situation - that she has $25 million in the bank but the recent lack of cash on hand could hurt her come Super Tuesday - are apparently false. She doesn't have the $25 million being reported, but the campaign has (wisely) prepaid for most of the major expenses that it will undertake between now and February 5th.

Just a few snippets from the other side of the aisle...
