Obama: I'm not opposed because of race

Washington (CNN) - President Obama echoed past statements in a Wednesday interview with PBS' "Newshour," telling the show's anchors that Republican opposition to his agenda isn't motivated by the color of his skin.

"It doesn't have to do with race in particular," Obama said. "It has to do with an effort to make sure people who might otherwise challenge the existing ways that things work are divided."

"President Clinton's support of the LGBT community and recognition that DOMA, the so-called Defense of Marriage Act, is unconstitutional and should be struck down shows that the political landscape continues to change in favor of LGBT equality."

Obama, Romney cancel campaign events ahead of Hurricane Sandy

(CNN) – Both presidential candidates have canceled campaign events in the coming days as the East Coast prepares for a major storm, and Virginia's governor said Sunday his state would take measures to ensure residents are able to vote, despite potential obstacles brought on by Hurricane Sandy.

"We'll be ready, but we're planning for contingencies if there's still a problem," Virginia Gov. Bob McDonnell said on CNN's "State of the Union." He said his state would "absolutely" make polling centers like schools and fire stations a top priority for restoring power, should widespread outages occur.

Obama ad argues economic progress under his tenure

(CNN) - A new television ad released Saturday by President Barack Obama's campaign pushes back against his opponent's argument that middle class Americans are not better off than they were when he took office.

The minute-long spot contrasts the deep job losses that happened early in Obama's term with the job growth since. Considering the 4.3 million jobs lost in Obama's first 13 months in the White House, the president remains 261,000 jobs shy of breaking even and then creating new jobs.

Pete Wilson invokes Clinton sex scandal at Ryan fund-raiser

(CNN) – Bill Clinton's speech at the Democratic National Convention on Wednesday night reminded at least one Republican of another time the former president stepped before the microphones.

Former California Gov. Pete Wilson said Thursday at a fundraiser for GOP vice presidential candidate Paul Ryan that Clinton's finger shake was reminiscent of the time he denied engaging in sexual behavior with a White House intern, and he used the moment to jab at the former president.
