In the latest polling, according to CNNPolitics.com, Edwards leads Democratic candidates in Iowa with 27%, followed by Clinton with 22% and Obama with 16%. Romney leads Republicans with 25% followed by Thompson with 14% and Giuliani with 13%. In New Hampshire, Clinton appears to have a lock while Romney and Giuliani are neck and neck.

Endorsement are like a never-ending stream during election seasons. Among the latest in the news: Mondale endorsed Clinton and the mayor of Portsmouth, NH, endorsed Richardson. Sometimes they can be like a double-edged blade apparently, as with reports that Obama reportedly doesn't want too many Hollywood endorsements, including Brad Pitt's.

Elsewhere on the trail:

DC insiders say they'd prefer to work with McCain, Richardson.

Key PR demographic baby boomers are also a key donor base in third quarter.

The Washington Postreports that Thompson co-chairman and advisor Philip Martin has criminal past.
