Washington - In running a successful national campaign, Barack Obama laid down guidelines that came to be seen as hallmarks of his leadership style. He prizes loyalty, discretion, teamwork and selflessness, say those who have worked with him. But as he shapes a new administration, the president-elect is dealing with a more complex challenge and a different set of needs. "Governing is different from campaigning, and running a White House is different from running a campaign," said Steve Elmendorf, deputy campaign manager for 2004 Democratic nominee John Kerry.

Expect an influx of starchily dressed and municipally minded visitors this weekend, as more than 1,100 elected officials and staff members from around the country descend on Baltimore for the U.S. Conference of Mayors. They'll be chatting about computerized manhole covers, new uses for natural gas and the reading skills of third-graders, among other civic matters. And they'll be hashing out a platform on weighty issues such as the military's involvement in Afghanistan and federal budget cuts.

OK, so George Allen won't be returning to the U.S. Senate in January, and chances are he'll never occupy the White House. But, at the end of what had to be one of the worst weeks of his life, the Jewish newspaper the Forward named Allen the 51st member of its annual Forward 50 list of the most influential American Jews. It was the Forward that earlier this year revealed the Virginia Republican's Jewish roots, and Allen's flustered response may have contributed to his narrow defeat and the Democratic takeover of the Senate.

WASHINGTON -- Rep. Chris Van Hollen of Maryland will lead the national push by House Democrats to preserve their new majority in 2008, incoming Speaker Nancy Pelosi announced yesterday. Pelosi has chosen the Montgomery County Democrat to succeed Rep. Rahm Emanuel of Illinois, the hard-charging strategist who led House Democrats back to the majority last month for the first time in 12 years, as chairman of the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee. The move puts Van Hollen in charge of the party's recruiting and fundraising efforts during the 2007-2008 election cycle.

WASHINGTON -- As he confronts the gravest crisis of his political life, President Clinton is finding himself with diminished credibility, with the modest agenda of a lame-duck president and with few of the valuable political advisers who were by his side earlier in his presidency.Gone from the White House are such skilled political veterans as Leon E. Panetta, Clinton's former chief of staff, who had a keen understanding of the culture of Capitol Hill, and former press secretary Mike McCurry, who offered the public an authoritative, yet genial, face for the White House.

ORLANDO, Fla. -- Opening a new phase in his campaigning for the midterm elections, President Bush delivered a tough attack yesterday on the Democratic Party's policy on taxes. At two political fundraisers in Florida, Bush sought to distinguish Republicans from Democrats on a core issue that political operatives believe can be counted on to motivate GOP voters. "There's a fundamental difference in this campaign and campaigns all across the country about who best to spend your money. We believe that the best people to spend your money is you," the president said at an appearance in Tampa, citing tax cuts passed by the Republican-led Congress since 2001.

The declarations by Boston Mayor Thomas Menino and Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel that they don't want Chick-fil-A franchises in their cities because the owner of Chick-fil-A is a devout Christian and opposes same-sex marriage are ridiculous ("Banned in Boston? If mayor has his way," July 27). Are they willing to kick out every business whose owner doesn't support gay marriage? And why stop at businesses? Why not ask all those who oppose gay marriage to stay away from those cities? If you're going to take a stand, then you should be consistent.

Gov. Martin O'Malley will have a speaking role at the Democratic National Convention in Charlotte, NC next month -- another example of his burgeoning leadership role in the Democratic party.  He was one of six speakers announced early this morning by the DNC, and one of four current or former governors on the program. It'll be the second time O'Malley has spoken to the convention. He gave a speech in 2004 that was remembered for its over-the-top rhetoric .

The good folks at Public Policy Polling decided to use their valuable time conducting a presidential poll including Charlie Sheen . Yes, he of Adonis DNA and tiger blood.  Even though it's been widely misreported that Sheen won matchups against both President Barack Obama and Sarah Palin, that's not true. He lost soundly. "Sheen's unpopularity is pretty universal across party lines," the pollsters concluded. (Which is shocking to anyone following his Twitter feed.
