As the mainstream media forget about the crisis in Georgia during convention week, reporter Michael Totten shares the real story of what happened there earlier this month.
On Friday, we are expecting to hear John McCain announce his running mate for the Republican presidential ticket. Some say McCain hasn’t settled on his choice, but others suggest he has. Whether you support or oppose McCain, who should he choose? Where does he need help? Who and what should he avoid? Will this choice really change the race in a meaningful way?
Tonight, Barack Obama will accept the Democratic presidential nomination. He says he plans to have a direct conversation with the American people. But what must he convey in that conversation? What do you want to hear from Obama tonight? What will convince undecided voters to get behind him? And will his speech be the event that determines YOUR vote in November?
John McCain will pick his running mate Friday at the latest and perhaps as early as Thursday. But who will it be? According to reports, Lieberman is still on McCain’s short short list. What would be the impact of a McCain/Lieberman ticket? Great show of bipartisanship or GOP train wreck with the conservative base?
Hillary Clinton sounded pretty genuine in her endorsement of Barack Obama Tuesday night, but Democratic officials are much more worried about her husband, Former President Bill Clinton.

Will Bill Clinton be a team player or will he simply refuse to mend fences? Would his lack of support really hurt Obama or just make for some convention drama?
Michelle Obama won rave reviews for her speech Monday night in which she talked about the humble upbringings of both her and her husband.

The U.S. Census Bureau says the number of uninsured Americans is at its lowest level in three years. What does that number mean? Why is it declining? And what specific plans do Barack Obama and John McCain have for expanding health care coverage to more people?

Tonight, New York Sen. Hillary Clinton will address the Democratic National Convention. Her supporters were reportedly infuriated by Barack Obama’s complete dismissal of the former first lady in the running mate selection process. So can Hillary heal the wounds of a bitter primary battle or will it take more than one speech to unify the party?
Michelle Obama gave a widely applauded speech Monday night at the Democratic National Convention in Denver. But is the folksy image we all saw on Monday night the real Michelle Obama or a calculated approach designed to counter her controversial statements from earlier in the campaign?
