Maybe it was too much to expect. But Wednesday night, I kind of thought that Dane County's Health and Human Needs Committee would, you know, have some questions about the county's handling of a child abuse case that ended in the baby's death last summer. But the committee didn't seem to know what to ask. >More

 Bill Clinton hits the Stock Pavilion in Madison

It's hard not to come to the conclusion that Bill Clinton, our first rock star president, has been beaten at his own game by Barack Obama. The contrast between Obama's appearance at the Kohl Center on Tuesday night and Clinton's appearance this afternoon at the UW Stock Pavilion was clear, on several fronts. >More
 Mike Huckabee underwhelms Madison in appearance at the Concourse

GOP presidential hopeful Mike Huckabee failed to fill much more than half of a ballroom at the Concourse Hotel Wednesday morning, calming Madison Fire Department concerns about press risers blocking too many exits. The only thing more unimpressive than the turnout was the applause Huckabee met following his introduction by Tim Michaels, a U.S. Senate wannabe that ran against Russ Feingold in 2004. >More

 Bill Clinton and Mike Huckabee next on the presidential tour to Madison

Two former Arkansas governors are swinging through Madison on Valentine's Day, the latest in a train of presidential candidates and campaign surrogates visiting this and other cities around the state in advance of the Wisconsin primary next Tuesday. Presidential candidate Mike Huckabee will be speaking at the Concourse Hotel downtown on Thursday morning, while former president and aspiring First Gentleman Bill Clinton is stopping at the Stock Pavilion on the UW campus in the afternoon. Given the spectacle of the Barack Obama rally in Madison on Tuesday, though, the visits carry the whiff of denouement. >More

Some 20,000 people poured into the Kohl Center on Tuesday night as presidential candidate Sen.

 View photos of the Wisconsin rally for Obama at the Kohl Center in Madison

Barack Obama drew an overflowing crowd of supporters to the Kohl Center on Tuesday night his first campaign stop in Wisconsin this year. An estimated 18,400 persons filled the arena to record levels, with another 2,000 or so gathered in an overflow room, all watching the Illinois senator and candidate for the Democratic presidential nomination deliver a victory speech following primary wins in Maryland, Virginia, and Washington, D.C.

 Live-blogging the Wisconsin rally with Barack Obama at the Kohl Center in Madison

Presidential candidates and their supporters are converging on Wisconsin over the next week in advance of the state's primary on Tuesday, February 19. Madison is no exception. The city has already seen an appearance by Chelsea Clinton at UW-Madison on Monday, and will host visits by Bill Clinton and Mike Huckabee on Thursday. A stop by Hillary Clinton is also expected, though no details have been announced, nor any visit by John McCain. The highest-profile visit by far, though, is one by Barack Obama at the Kohl Center on the night of the Potomac primaries. >More
