Crowley moves into anchor chair

Washington (CNN) – Veteran political correspondent Candy Crowley was named on Sunday the new anchor of “State of Union,” CNN’s political news program.

“Candy’s rare combination of shrewd insight and healthy irreverence for the games politicians play has made her one of the most honored political journalists and a cult figure among CNN viewers,” said Jonathan Klein, president, CNN/U.S. “Every Sunday she’ll translate Washington-speak into plain English that every American can understand, as she has been doing better than any reporter on the beat for decades.”

Crowley moves into the anchor the chair that has been occupied for the past year by John King, CNN’s chief national correspondent. King is moving to weekdays to anchor a new 7 p.m. ET political program.

“We’re not here for our own sort of internal, Inside-the-Beltway conversation,” Crowley, CNN’s senior political correspondent, said of her new assignment. “It’s supposed to be relevant, and I think that people do tune in.”

Crowley, who joined CNN in 1987, has been a fixture on the presidential campaign trail for the better part of three decades. She has covered the late Sen. Edward Kennedy’s failed effort to defeat President Carter for the Democratic nomination in 1980, then-Texas Gov. George Bush’s razor thin victory over Vice President Al Gore in 2000 and then-Sen. Barack Obama’s historic run in 2008, among many others. She received a Gracie Allen Award in 2009 for her coverage of Sen. Hillary Clinton’s failed presidential bid.

“Our senior political correspondent is without peer: an experienced, dogged reporter; a poetic writer; a gifted leader and mentor; and beginning next Sunday, Candy Crowley will have the privilege and the pleasure of leading our Sunday conversation," said King as handed the baton to Crowley on Sunday’s program.

State of the Union will air from 9-10 a.m. ET with an “updated edition” at noon.

Crowley: A lot can happen between now and 2010

(CNN) - CNN senior political correspondent Candy Crowley said that Tuesday night's Republican victories in Virginia should be looked at as a political poll.

"I think the take-away is that you have to look at tonight as a poll. We always say a poll is a snapshot in time," she said. "This is a snapshot in time. It does tell Barack Obama something."

Crowley added, "However, a lot can happen between now and 2010. To extrapolate too much and superimpose this over what's going to happen in 2010 is a mistake."

Crowley: Both candidates land uppercuts, whose was sharper?

OXFORD, Mississippi (CNN) - Awards so far for best upper cuts:

–Obama, questioning why McCain would object to going into Pakistan to get Al Qaeda, since he's someone who sings songs about bombing Iran. (he did once, months ago on the campaign trail, as a joke: "Bomb Bomb Bomb. Bomb Bomb Iran," sung to the tune of the Beach Boys' "Barbara Ann." Hasn't sung it since.)

Watch: Analyzing the debate

–McCain, explaining why he will not commit to meeting with the Head of Spain: because "I don't even have a seal yet" - a reference to an instance this summer when Obama's campaign put a presidential-like seal on his podium. Lots of ridicule resulted. The seal hasn't been seen since.

Crowley: Equally average performance from both candidates

CNN

Watch: Sen. John McCain explains why the U.S. cannot allow Iran to have nuclear weapons.

OXFORD, Mississippi (CNN) - Debates are always a good thing - but anybody hear anything new? The two of them stayed pretty flat the whole night.

Watch: Undecided voters weigh in

Still, McCain worked in the phrase Obama "doesn't understand" several times, and Obama linked McCain to Bush several times - so I assume their campaigns will claim mission accomplished.

Crowley: A painful question makes an appearance

OXFORD, Mississippi (CNN) - To me, this is the most difficult topic of all they have just gotten into: the deaths of American service people in Iraq. Essentially, it really boils down to this: If the U.S. pulls out before "victory," did they die for nothing?

McCain has never said those soldiers will have died in vain if there is not victory, but says that honoring them properly means not leaving before winning.

Obama says that no American soldier ever dies in vain. It is the most painful question, I think - something that will be discussed in the history books on this era.
