    There's more to the 2008 campaign than Obama, Clinton and McCain. We catch up with former Alaska Sen. Mike Gravel, who may yet earn the title of the "real maverick." He started out as a Democrat, but now he's is running as a Libertarian.

  • (Still) Campaigning for Kucinich

    Homemade Fervor

    Recently, the Washington state Dennis Kucinich campaign ran into a problem: their guy dropped out of the presidential race. But rather than fold up the campaign effort, the Kucinich folks decided to soldier on anyway. They're gearing up for this weekend's Washington caucuses, hoping to earn delegates and have an influence on the party's national platform. Are they delusional or nobly crusading on behalf of their ideals?

  • A Candidate Blind Taste Test

    Who Do You REALLY Want?

    Weekend America gets a lot of letters about coverage of the campaign, and one complaint keeps coming up about media coverage in general: too much focus on the personalities, not enough on the issues. So we decided to run a little experiment. We've taken the remaining candidates for president, given them pseudonyms, and summarized what they stand for. Can you guess who stands for what?

    Political consultant Rod Shealy is a S.C. native who has seen and caused his fair share of political drama. He is usually very busy around this time, but as Republicans cast their vote in the 2008 S.C. primary, he'll just sit back and watch. He's not working for any presidential candidates this time around. Guest host John Moe talks with Shealy about his state's reputation for mudslinging during election time.

  • How To Tell A Joke

    Whatever happened to jokes? Not just saying something funny, but a real joke with a set up and punchline. Guest host John Moe asks Chris Cashman of Seattle, the recent winner of a joke-telling contest.

  • Ron Paul's Montana Revolution?

    Ron Paul's Town

    Montana's Republican caucuses are part of Super Tuesday on February 5, and this year a limited number of spots are available to those wishing to caucus. It's too much bureaucracy for some, but Ron Paul supporters see it as a golden opportunity. Paul trails in the polls but the Ron Paul army hopes that with a win in Montana, they can send a message.
