CNN was the place to be on cable TV Wednesday night if you wanted context and perspective on President Barack Obama's prime-time address on how and when American troops will be withdrawn from Afghanistan. In the wake of the speech, anchor Wolf Blitzer and the CNN producers were whipping around the globe for reaction and context on the president's words from Nick Paton Walsh in Afghanistan and Nic Robertson in London. Candy Crowley, Gloria Borger, Chris Lawrence, Peter Bergen and David Gergen were offering coverage and analysis from the DC bureau, with Dana Bash on Capitol Hill and Brianna Keilar at the White House.

Watching political debates - local, regional and national - the keen observer will note that they are like baseball stadiums: tailored for the advantage of a few, with parameters sometimes varying wildly to satisfy certain politicians, citizens, media outlets, etc. It is not an exaggeration to say that no format has ever satisfied all observers, and some of them satisfy very few. Some of the complaints are: there are too many or too few debates for...

Democratic Gov. Martin O'Malley played surrogate for the Obama administration Sunday morning, appearing on CNN's State of the Union to offer his views on the GOP presidential nomination fight, the president's chances for re-election and the economy. O'Malley was paired with Republican Gov. Robert McDonnell of Virginia for the roughly 10 minute piece. Each chairs his respective party's governors association. O'Malley had the in-studio advantage, sitting across the table from CNN host Candy Crowley.

Two weeks ago, the conventional wisdom was that televised presidential debates weren't going to matter much this year. Then a TV debate took place in Denver on Oct. 3, and we are still talking about Big Bird being threatened, moderator Jim Lehrer getting steamrolled, President Barack Obama under-performing and the polls flipping from “done deal” to “game on” overnight. Voters knew the debates mattered, even as the media and political wise men and women were telling them they didn't.

UPDATED with copy of CNN memo and confirmation of cancellation ... John King's nightly show on CNN has been cancelled. King, the star of political reporting during the 2008 presidential campaign, will continue with the channel as its "lead campaign correspodent," according to an internal memo from CNN President Ken Jautz. King was chief national correspondent. Wolf Blitzer's "Situation Room," which now runs two hours, will be expanded to three hours, 4 to 7 p.m. weekdays.

It might have been back in February when he got under the skin of New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie on CBS' "Face the Nation. " Or maybe it was in May when he went toe to toe with former House Speaker Newt Gingrich on NBC's "Meet the Press. " None of the analysts is sure exactly when it happened. But they all agree that sometime in 2012, Maryland Gov. Martin O'Malley become a staple, if not a star, of Sunday morning public-affairs television. And for all the new media speaking to voters, that forum not only shapes the national debate, it also plays a major role in anointing politicians as national leaders worthy of White House consideration.

Back in July, I wrote about Gov. Martin O'Malley becoming a staple of network and cable Sunday morning TV. Public affairs show hosts ranging from Bob Schieffer to Candy Crowley talked about the attributes Maryland's governor brings to the national conversation about the nation's civic life. This Sunday, he will do less familiar turn on Baltimore TV sitting down for an interview with Richard Sher on the former WJZ newsman's "Square Off" show. I am interested in hearing what O'Malley has to say when he's speaking to a local audience and isn't riding TV point for President Obama's re-election campaign.

Today's editorial "What about climate change?" (Oct. 18) was great! Thank you for asking the question that CNN's Candy Crowley decided was less important than the economy during the debate between President Barack Obama and Mitt Romney. You described Mr. Obama as "head-and-shoulders above his challenger," but being as far behind as we are on climate change isn't a virtue. James Hansen of NASA is the planet's best-informed climate scientist. He said we need to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 6 percent per year, until we reach zero emissions.

Nearly 66 million voters watched Tuesday's town hall debate between President Barack Obama and GOP challenger Mitt Romney. While that audience is slightly down from the 67.2 million who saw the first debate, it is still a huge TV gathering -- up by 2.4 million viewers from the second debate in 2008 when Obama drew rock-star ratings every time he appeared on TV. The third and final debate will be held Monday with Bob Scieffer, of CBS News, as...

Gov. Martin O'Malley returned to the national stage Sunday after a Democratic National Convention speech that received tepid reviews, facing off with Missouri Sen. Roy Blunt over job creation and women's issues on CNN. Questioned by CNN's Candy Crowley, O'Malley defended President Obama's handling of the U.S. economy, asserting that employment is now greater than it was when the president took office. He said job creation could have been more robust if Republicans hadn't blocked Obama's jobs creation legislation in Congress.
