And both parties' congressional candidates need to watch out for bloggers looking to expose special interests.

The "hilarious" analysis of the Democratic race by Clinton strategist Mark Penn shows that he still doesn't get his "anachronistic," "poll-driven" campaign was a reason Clinton couldn't raise enough money to win, writes Swampland's Joe Klein. Compared to Obama, Clinton had a flawed organization and a flawed campaign message, one that was just about regaining power, writes RedState's Pejman Yousefzadeh.

With Clinton out of the way, Obama is enjoying a six-point bounce in the latest Rasmussen tracking poll and leading McCain, 48 percent to 40 percent, writes Todd Beeton at MyDD. The tongue-twisted performance of Minnesota Gov. Tim Pawlenty (R), in which he doesn't even try to defend McCain's support for Democratic climate change proposals, may be a "sad harbinger of things to come" for Republicans, writes a despondent John Hinderaker at Power Line.

Bloggers on both sides push for independent-minded candidates in two heated congressional primaries. Democrats should back Rep. Steve Cohen (D-Tenn.) in his race against the candidate of Emily's List, Nikki Tinker, who hasn't distanced herself from anti-Semitic and homophobic attacks against Cohen, writes Paul Rosenberg at Open Left. And if Republicans want to turn the tide, they should support pork-busting Sean Parnell, the Alaska lieutenant governor running in a GOP primary against the "uber-purveyor of pork," Rep.
