Dems seek to sharpen message on whether Americans better off

Charlotte, North Carolina (CNN) - Vice President Joe Biden led an effort on Monday to sharpen the message of Democrats on the eve of their party convention after other senior members struggled to formulate a definitive answer to the question of whether voters should feel better off since President Barack Obama took office.

Biden told a Labor Day campaign rally in Detroit that the country was indeed doing better than when Republicans led by George W. Bush left power in 2009.

DNC Chair: Republicans are on a witch hunt

(CNN) - The head of the Democratic National Committee on Wednesday hit back against claims the Obama administration is using executive privilege to cover up facts in the so-called Fast and Furious case.

"It's clear that this is nothing more than a political witch hunt to distract from the fact that Republicans in Congress have no interest in focusing on what we need to focus on, which is jobs and the economy," Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz said on CNN's "The Situation Room with Wolf Blitzer."

Democrats: Romney leaves N.H. as a 'wounded candidate'

(CNN) - Despite Mitt Romney's commanding win in New Hampshire's primary on Tuesday, national Democrats argued the Republican presidential frontrunner's 40% finish–with 95 precincts reporting–was less than a victory.

"He came out of this primary as a wounded candidate," Debbie Wasserman Schultz, chair of the Democratic National Committee, said Wednesday on CNN's "Starting Point with Soledad O'Brien."

In a speech to the Nashua Chamber of Commerce, Romney said he wanted Americans to be able to switch insurance companies if they were unhappy with their service.

Mitt Romney: The most fortunate candidate in the race?

Tampa, Florida (CNN) - You've heard of the Dos Equis beer pitch-man, "The Most Interesting Man in the World." Perhaps it's time to dub Mitt Romney "The Most Fortunate Candidate in the Race."

The former Massachusetts governor has led what has been a relatively charmed campaign. While Romney has spent the last few weeks polishing his attack lines for the president, several of his rivals have had near implosions. Witness Herman Cain and Rick Perry.

Democrats say new Romney ad distorts Obama's words

(CNN) - Mitt Romney's first television commercial of his second bid for the Republican presidential nomination hits the airwaves Tuesday, but the ad is already creating a controversy.

President Barack Obama's re-election campaign and the Democratic National Committee are both slamming the 60-second spot, saying it takes comments made on the campaign trail in 2008 by then-Sen. Obama out of context. But the Romney campaign says they used the line intentionally.

Programming note: GOP presidential candidates face off at 8 p.m. ET Tuesday, November 22, in the CNN Republican National Security Debate in Washington, D.C.
