Hotline Sort: Obama 2.0

March 29, 2011
6) Former DNC chairman Howard Dean has endorsed California Secretary of State Debra Bowen in the state's 36th District special election. Bowen is facing Los Angeles City Councilwoman Janice Hahn in the primary. 5) Horizon PAC, described as Ambassador to China Jon Huntsman's "campaign in waiting," has recently removed the large letter 'H' from its website and put in its place an all-caps "Horizon." A PAC spokesperson: "This way if Huntsman decides to run for president and his campaign wants to use the letter H, they could do so without any confusion." Meanwhile, operatives Paul Collins and Brad Blais are joining the PAC as consultants to organize its political operations in New Hampshire. 4) Texas Senate candidate Michael Williams (R) has landed an endorsement from retired Army General Tommy Franks. Franks will serve as national chairman of Williams' campaign. 3) After persistent questioning during his first national interview since being elected, Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) ruled out a run for president in 2012. Rubio: "I am not running for president in 2012." Rubio was less definitive in his response to speculation that he is a contender to become the GOP vice presidential nominee. 2) On Monday night, Obama delivered a cogent argument in favor of humanitarian intervention in Libya and sketched out a policy supporting the political ouster of Col. Muammar el-Qaddafi, writes National Journal's Michael Hirsh. Public opinion remains precarious, however. According to a new USA Today/Gallup poll, conducted Friday to Sunday, Americans are split on how Obama is handling the situation in Libya: Equal numbers, 44 percent, approve and disapprove of Obama's handling of the situation. And a new Pew Research Center poll, conducted around the same period, shows just tepid support for U.S. miliary action, with only a plurality of Americans, 47 percent, saying the U.S. and its allies made the right decision to conduct air strikes in Libya; 36 percent calling it the wrong decision. 1) Obama is fewer than three weeks away from announcing his reelection campaign. Democratic sources say he will make it public with an online video his aides will post on his new campaign website. -- Steven Shepard contributed to this report.
