(CNN) — Events half a world away made waves on the presidential campaign trail this week, as Russia and Georgia battled in South Ossetia.
In the latest episode of CNN=Politics Daily, CNN’s Ed Henry reports on what the escalating conflict means for the presidential candidates here in the U.S. - and how the headlines may give presumptive Republican nominee John McCain the upper hand.
The Democratic National Committee has announced its themes for the party’s nominating convention: four days of events focused on unity, change and the future. Senior Political Analyst Bill Schneider explains how these themes will play out in Denver – and how Hillary Clinton will have a starring role.
And as Clinton’s supporters continue to press for her name to be placed in nomination at the Democratic convention, more clues are surfacing in the search for how her presidential bid ended up falling short. Internal e-mails leaked to The Atlantic magazine paint a chaotic portrait of life inside the Clinton campaign. CNN’s Mary Snow has the story.
Finally: The battleground state of Pennsylvania may be leaning towards Barack Obama, but John McCain could be well-poised to claim that electoral vote prize. CNN’s Tom Foreman reports from the Election Express in Pennsylvania.
