Seduced by the idea of experiencing Africa, Stuart Stevens casually agreed to drive a friend's Land Rover from the Central African Republic, through the Sahel and Sahara, to the Mediterranean coast. Stevens and his companion quickly learned that the terrors of modern Africa are not the ravening beasts and savage tribes of Tarzan movies, but corrupt, inefficient bureaucracies; the routine failure of basic mechanical devices; the climate and the appalling lack of medical facilities.

Here's the thing about President Obama's decision to appear with Zach Galifianakis on Funny or Die's “Between Two Ferns,” one of the funniest faux-interview series you will ever see on the Web or off. It's not that Obama was particularly funny (his jokes seemed strained). Or that Galifianakis was at his offensive best (I'd save that praise for his interview with Justin Bieber , though asking whether Obama was going to put his presidential library in Hawaii or Kenya was pretty funny)

WASHINGTON -- Stuart Stevens, the chief strategist of Mitt Romney's presidential campaign, has opened up about Romney's loss at the polls, and where he places the blame for the campaign's defeat. Stevens, whose role within the campaign came under increasing scrutiny as the year went on, said in a Washington Post column Wednesday that in spite of Romney's loss, he and his ideals “carried the day.” “On Nov. 6, that wasn't enough to win. But it was enough to make us proud and to build on for the future,” Stevens said.

Mitt Romney spent twice as much as rival Newt Gingrich in the final three months before the Republican presidential nominating process kicked off, a sign of the financial dominance he has maintained over his opponents throughout the race. The former Massachusetts governor spent $19 million in the last quarter of 2011 - - the vast majority on ads, consultants, fundraising and staff, according to campaign finance records filed Tuesday night. The biggest chunk -- $4.5 million -- went to American Rambler Productions, the political shop of his senior advisors, Stuart Stevens, Russ Schriefer and Eric Ferhnstrom.

Mitt Romney will join his three remaining GOP rivals in a televised debate from Tampa, Fla., on Monday night, the sponsoring network, NBC, announced Saturday. The announcement about the front-runner's participation ends growing uncertainty about Romney's participation, which was quickly becoming an issue in Florida, the next primary state.  His campaign had refused to say whether or not he would appear. A front-page story in Saturday's Tampa Bay Times questioned whether Romney would show for  debate after all. The article echoed the persistent hints from the Romney camp that their man might not want to be in both Florida debates this week (a second encounter, sponsored by the state Republican Party, is set for Thursday in Jacksonville)

BOSTON -- Mitt Romney voted near his Belmont home Tuesday morning before heading to Ohio and Pennsylvania for last-minute appearances to court voters as they head to the polls in those battleground states. Romney said he feels “very, very good” about his prospects against President Obama. When asked by reporters whom he voted for, he said, "I think you know. " Romney, wearing a dark suit, and his wife Ann, wearing a long sapphire jacket, arrived at the Beech Street Center at 8:41 a.m. and were greeted by a large crowd of cheering supporters and pro-Obama demonstrators.

President Obama will debate Republican challenger Mitt Romney on Wednesday night in the first of three presidential debates ahead of the Nov. 6 election. Tonight's focus: domestic policy. Though Romney's certainly suffered from a steady stream of gaffes , tonight's debate could turn things around for the candidate who's been suffering in the polls as of late. Fortunately for Romney, he is a particularly gifted debater, as the Atlantic's national correspondent, James Fallows, documented in the September issue of the magazine.

CHARLOTTE, N.C. - A new national opinion survey shows that last week's Republican convention provided only minimal benefit for GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney.  Voters weren't particularly impressed, either, with Romney's big speech on the closing night. The new Gallup poll found that only 38% rated Romney's address good or excellent. That's substantially lower than the ratings given to eight other acceptances speeches, going back to Republican nominee Bob Dole's in 1996.
