Mike Allen,

Mike Allen of returned to my show, with more great analysis of the presidential race.

Mike was the one at President Bush's press conference this morning who asked for reaction to Bill Clinton's proposal that, after Hillary becomes President (!), Bill and Bush 41 go on a worldwide tour to improve America's image. Bush 43's reaction: "that will be a one-man trip."

With the Iowa caucuses coming up in two weeks, I wondered why Rudy Giuliani -- who was hospitalized here in St. Louis last night and today -- has been slipping in the polls, and whether Clinton's camp is worried about her inability to pull away from Obama and Edwards. Mike pointed out an interesting similarity between those campaigns. I was also curious what impact the Christmas weekend will have on the candidates' activities in Iowa.
