Brody File is Back

I'm back. Vacation was great. I took the family to San Francisco and Las Vegas. My five year old girl looks at me at the end of the trip and says, , "Remember Daddy, what happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas." Amen to that!

Obama Hits the Mark in Race Speech

We won't know for awhile how voters view Barack Obama's speech today on race relations but The Brody File saw it as a HUGE positive for Obama and a successful turning point for the future of his campaign. The Obama campaign tells me he told high level staffers on Saturday that he wanted to do this speech. He ended up writing it himself on Sunday and Monday and then finished it up this morning.

Questions About Barack Obama's Pastor

Barack Obama has rejected some of the controversial comments coming from his pastor, Jeremiah Wright. I think it's fair to say that Obama's response has not been forceful or strong enough as he even compared him to the old family uncle who makes disagreeable statements from time to time. But there are some lingering questions.

Presidential Candidates Invited to Religious Compassion Forum

Religious leaders from across the faith and ideological spectrum today invited Senators Clinton, McCain and Obama to participate in an unprecedented bipartisan presidential candidate forum at Messiah College near Harrisburg, Pennsylvania on the evening of Sunday, April 13 -- just nine days before the Pennsylvania primary.   Now more than ever, Americans motivated by faith are bridging ideological divides to address domestic and international poverty, global AIDS, climate change, aborti

“Sacred” Pulpit Chair Reserved for Obama’s Retiring Pastor

You will notice the pulpit is draped in African cloth, the lecterns, altar and the main pulpit lectern, along with the pastor’s chair. These areas are covered because the words and rituals of the sacred were practiced behind, before and in these physical spaces. During the Pastor’s Word, all of the pulpit chairs will be removed except the center chair. No one,including Pastor Moss, will sit in the pulpit! We honor this space where our Senior Pastor provided ministry, encouragement an

Obama Slams Clinton

When your entire campaign is based upon a claim of experience, it is important that you have evidence to support that claim. Hillary Clinton’s argument that she has passed “the Commander- in-Chief test” is simply not supported by her record. There is no doubt that Hillary Clinton played an important domestic policy role when she was First Lady. It is well known, for example, that she led the failed effort to pass universal health insurance. There is no reason to believe, howeve

Obama Mania may turn into Obama Mayhem

The Republican National Committee is the LEAST of Barack Obama’s worries. He needs to worry about what he’s about to be hit with. If he thought the “kitchen sink” strategy was bad, wait until he gets a load of “The All Major Appliances” strategy. What Obama and his campaign need to figure out is whether or not they take the high road, and rather continue to attack John McCain and look like a frontrunner, or do they go tit for tat with Clinton and beat them at

Does Hagee Endorsement Help or Hurt McCain?

Endorsed by an influential Texas televangelist, Republican John McCain endeared himself to one group of voters but risked alienating another with the pastor's anti-Catholic views. The controversy has been mild so far, but still, every vote counts in a presidential election that is expected to be closely contested. Evangelical or born-again Christian voters were key to George W. Bush's victories, but so were Roman Catholics, who chose Bush over their fellow Catholic John Kerry in 2004 and over

If Texas doesn't go his way, (and the polls don't look good), Mike Huckabee will most likely bring his surprising and energetic campaign to a close. But not before having established himself politically in a real substantive way.

Hillary's New Job?

If Hillary Clinton loses the Democratic nomination to Barack Obama, I've found her a backup gig. She could work for the Republican National Committee press shop. OK, I admit the pay isn't as good but after what she and her campaign have been throwing out against Obama the last few days, it would be a perfect fit.
