(CNN) - Sen. John McCain, the presumptive Republican nominee, picked up Friday where President Bush left off Thursday.

In the latest episode of CNN=Politics Daily, Sen. McCain and Sen. Barack Obama, the front-runner for the Democratic Party's nomination, spar over U.S. foreign policy in what appears to be a preview of a possible general election match-up.

CNN's Jim Acosta reports on how Obama responded Friday to Pres. Bush's remarks in Israel a day earlier.

Dana Bash is out on the campaign trail with McCain.  She reports on how the Democratic Party has targeted McCain in the wake of Bush's controversial comments and Wolf Blitzer brings you McCain's latest salvo launched at Obama during the Arizona senator's speech Friday evening in Kentucky.

The California Supreme Court's historic ruling Thursday striking down the state's ban on same-sex marriage may send shock waves through the 2008 presidential race that reverberate to the benefit of one candidate in particular.  Carol Costello takes a look at the politics of the gay rights issue.

It's Friday.  That means it's time for Jennifer Mikell's Trail Mix - a retrospective of the most memorable moments in the presidential race this week.

Finally, Wolf Blitzer recently sat down with both Obama and Sen. Hillary Clinton.  In two special episodes of CNN=Politics Daily, watch Blitzer's entire interviews with the Democratic rivals.
