    Playing the presidential card has paid off for Donald Trump. The real-estate mogul and reality-TV host -- who kept viewers and the NBC network guessing until the last minute whether he would make a serious run at the Oval Office -- got a sizeable pay raise to renew his contract to host "The Celebrity Apprentice" for another two years. NBC Universal, which was acquired by cable-TV giant Comcast this year, agreed to pay Trump and co-producer Mark Burnett an estimated $160 million over two years, according to sources familiar with the contract. Trump, who was in Scotland yesterday touting his...

    PALM BEACH, Florida (AP) — Donald Trump says he has put off agreeing to an extension of his “Celebrity Apprentice” reality show while he weighs a presidential bid. The real estate mogul and potential Republican contender says he told NBC on Friday he could not commit to a three-year contract extension for the series until he decides whether he’s running. Trump spoke at an event at his Mar-a-Lago estate on Palm Beach. He offered familiar messages questioning President Barack Obama’s birthplace. He also said the U.S. should be entitled to Iraqi oil and praised the ultraconservative tea party. Trump says...

    DES MOINES, Iowa - Delaware Sen. Joe Biden abandoned his bid for the Democratic presidential nomination Thursday after a poor showing in the state's caucuses. Biden was expected to announce his decision to withdraw from the contest at a campaign rally in Des Moines, according to advisers who spoke on condition of anonymity. The veteran lawmaker and chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee received less than 1 percent of the vote in Iowa's caucuses despite a spirited campaign in which he emphasized his international policy credentials and long career in public service. It's a case of deja vu for...

    Republican Rep. Duncan Hunter, best known for his advocacy on behalf of the military, launched a longshot bid for the presidency Thursday in this early voting state. Frequently citing Ronald Reagan, Hunter told supporters he wants to pick up on the former president's legacy. "I want to lead that policy of peace through strength," said Hunter, a strong supporter of the Iraq war. The 14-term conservative from California, who has made no secret of his White House aspirations, set up a presidential exploratory committee earlier this month. He initially announced his intentions in October, becoming the first GOP candidate to...

    Democratic Insider: Hillary ‘Unfit’ for President An upcoming book by a longtime Democratic insider asserts that Sen. Hillary Clinton is “ethically unfit” to hold public office. The author of the book is Jerry Zeifman, who was counsel to the House Judiciary Committee for 17 years. He was chief counsel to the committee during the Watergate episode, a role he chronicled in an earlier book, “Without Honor: The Crimes of Camelot and the Impeachment of President Nixon.” Hillary was a committee staffer at the time. And Zeifman’s new book “Hillary’s Pursuit of Power” is based in large part on his personal...

    DES MOINES, Iowa - Sen. Joe Biden said Wednesday his failed bid for the Democratic presidential nomination nearly 20 years ago has forced him to declare his candidacy clearly for 2008. ``I'm the only candidate who has straightforwardly said for a year that I'm running,'' the Delaware senator said in an interview with The Associated Press. ``I haven't danced around. The point is, because I dropped out 20 years ago, there is the question: Is Biden serious? Is he really going to stay? The proof of the pudding is the eating.'' Biden sought the Democratic nomination in 1988, but dropped...

    Once again, New York Sen. Hillary Clinton has assured the nation that she won't be making a White House bid in 2004 - sort of. "I have no plans to run for president," she told the Associated Press in a telephone interview Friday, for a story that confirmed in every other respect her plans to run in 2008. In fact, her "no plans" in 2004 announcement leaves plenty of wiggle room. And even the planning denial seems in doubt given Mrs. Clinton's activities of recent months; a veritable frenzy of presidential positioning that would likely be wasted on race most...
