There was a time when the lines between the practices of politics and journalism were clear-cut. Professional politicians did their thing, which was getting elected and getting others elected. Professional journalists did theirs, writing and telling how the politicians did what they did. Seldom did the two meet in public opinion forums Today, political operatives are regular commentators and analysts on radio, television and the Internet, and journalists of all political persuasions run for public office, sometimes getting elected.

You know what, maybe there is some justice in this world. I was angry Monday when I saw David Axelrod, the latest Obama partisan hired by MSNBC, dare to take on Bob Schieffer, of CBS News. At issue was a statement Schieffer made on his "Face the Nation" show Sunday in which he questioned not only Team Obama's lack of respect for the press and First Amendment, but the overall communications competence of the administration. You can see it here . Schieffer is right, of course.

CHICAGO -- Sen. Barack Obama strode into a hotel ballroom filled with expectation one recent Tuesday and declared that his quest for the Oval Office, which "began as a whisper in Springfield, has swelled to a chorus of millions calling for change." That's the essence of the Illinois senator's message: Obama equals change; Hillary Clinton equals status quo. All else cascades from there. In this contest - where the candidates are but a micron or so apart on most policy matters - message is everything.

Visit NBCNews.com for breaking news , world news , and news about the economy MSNBC has long been as bad as Fox News when it comes to ideological bias. But with the hiring of longtime Team Obama loyalists David Axelrod and Robert Gibbs, it's official: MSNBC is worse. The cable channel that flies under the banner of NBC News is now all but a bona fide organ of state propaganda, an information channel that speaks in the same dominant voice as the folks running the government -- and tries to mask what it is up to. I didn't plan on getting all free-press-and-democracy amped up about the hirings until I saw Axelrod with Andrea Mitchell last week in his first appearance on MSNBC.

WASHINGTON - Super Tuesday marked the end to major combat for the Democratic nomination and also a beginning - to perhaps the longest- ever general election campaign. Sen. John Kerry emerged from the contested nomination fight faster and in better shape than any Democrat in recent memory. "A Cinderella primary" season, as a Republican strategist enviously described it yesterday. But the Massachusetts senator has little time to savor that impressive performance. President Bush and his Republican allies are already counterattacking, and the next few months could well frame the choice that voters face in November.

What political people are saying about Tuesday's Democratic primary in Pennsylvania: "Hillary Clinton had a good night but not a great night. Tonight keeps her racing around the track. But after 150 laps in the Indianapolis 500, she won't pass [Barack] Obama unless he runs out of gas." PETER FENN, Democratic strategist "The notion that Obama cannot attract core constituencies is only being tested in matches against Hillary Clinton. That's not an argument that he can't win them against John McCain."

- The political war over the failed Christmas Day bombing of a U.S. airliner showed no signs of abating Wednesday as leaders of both parties escalated their attacks, employing fiery rhetoric in assessing blame for the Detroit incident. Former Vice President Dick Cheney led a Republican offensive to assail President Barack Obama's leadership on national security, charging that the American people are less safe because Cheney believes Obama is "pretending" that the United States is not at war with terrorists.
