Calling all the ladies

We're back with the "NOW" Intern Moment of the Day -- and today's winner is Politico's Maggie Haberman. Or rather her Tweet is.We talked to our panel about the role of the candidates' wives. And as the primary stretches on, Mitt Romney and Rick Santorum seem to be stumbling more and more, which -- according to our interns -- makes the role of the GOP wives that much more important. If these women can’t humanize their husbands and their comments, who else can? Here's the full segment: read more

NOW Today: It's Super Tuesday - let the games begin!

03/06/12 06:49AM

And so the day has finally come - Super Tuesday is upon us!Voters in 11 states head to the polls today, the biggest prize being Georgia, Newt Gingrich's home state boasting 76 delegates.  But it's Ohio that's buzzing this morning as a host of polls all put that state's 63 delegates in a virtual tie.  Speaking of Newt Gingrich - he and his wife Callista won't be voting today.  The former Speaker calls Virginia his home these days, but his campaign failed to get on the ballot in that state.  In fact, most of the presidential candidates did, with the exception of Mitt Romney and Ron Paul. read more

The ice seemed to thaw just a little bit during today’s Oval Office meeting between President Obama and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.  The last time the two met in the White House, things got really uncomfortable when Netanyahu made it clear that he was no fan of the President’s proposal that negotiations with the Palestinians be based on the pre-1967 borders.Check out the video from last May:And that’s not the only point of disagreement. read more

Shepard Smith: How do you feel about the Michigan win?Mitt Romney: Ah, well, we feel great. Michigan was just another case of voters taking a look at Mitt Romney and saying "Ehhhh, I guess."That's pretty much how it's going for Mitt Romney these days. A reluctant coalescing. read more

The New Yorker's latest cover quickly got our attention this morning. Mitt Romney driving rival Rick Santorum around on the roof of his car.It's an obvious mockery of the now infamous incident from the 1980s when Romney’s family dog was transported on the roof of the car for hours. But it says much, much more about where the race stands.What would your perfect caption be? read more

NOW Today: Confronting the tough issues

03/05/12 06:49AM

While we've spent a lot of time talking about the 2012 horse race, we're reminded today of some of the serious policy issues that are going on. Yesterday President Obama addressed pro-Israel lobbying group AIPAC saying he would not tolerate a nuclear Iran.  The conference continues today and is a stark reminder of the volatility in the Middle East, the "loose talk of war" that has permeated the discussion, and the risks facing the U.S. given overseas instability. read more

NOW Today

03/02/12 06:48AM

On the show today: Campaign Drama.  As Rick Santorum and Mitt Romney position themselves for Super Tuesday, at least one of them is focused on the past (i.e. Michigan) to challenge delegate counts. Then: At least 5 more days of Newt Gingrich. He's said himself he's got to win Georgia on Tuesday.  If he doesn't, will that mean the end of one of the greatest gifts of the political season (at least for TV producers)? Plus - a look ahead at gas prices and the role they'll play both in the primaries and, especially, the general election. read more
