Profile of Henry Heimlich, Creator of Anti-Choking Maneuver

newrepublic.com — And, yet, even in its diminished state, Heimlich's office served as an impressive testament to his unique stature. Framed cartoon strips that referenced the Heimlich maneuver shared wall space with pictures of celebrities-Cher, Elizabeth Taylor, Ronald Reagan-who were saved by his anti-choking treatment.

Meet the Guy Getting Rich on Trump’s Run for the White House

gq.com — Win or lose, Donald Trump's campaign has already been good for business: his business, the cable television business, and the business of a man named Don Kriener. A bar cook in Homosassa, Florida, Kriener hits the road every four years to sell political buttons on the presidential campaign trail.

Watching Bernie Sanders Make His Most Radical Claim Yet: That He Can Win

gq.com — Bernie Sanders shuffled through his papers-an unruly pile of white and yellow sheets that still managed to be slightly neater than his hair. About 15 minutes in to what would be an hour-long speech, he was searching for some statistics, and the 1,000 or so supporters here in Davenport, Iowa who'd packed a second-floor ballroom above a bail bond shop on Friday night would have to wait.

Say What You Will, Bill Clinton Is Hillary’s Best Weapon

gq.com — Maybe it was the sweater he wore - emblazoned with an American-flag and looking like something a grandmother (or Lena Dunham) might sport - but Bill Clinton didn't exactly look like an Establishment Politician Thursday night in Ottumwa, Iowa. And he didn't want the crowd thinking his wife was one either.

Meet Trump’s Ragtag Army of True Believers in Iowa

gq.com — We were somewhere around Ankeny, on the edge of Des Moines, when the realization began to take hold: No one was showing up. I'd come to this truck stop on a frigid Thursday morning for what was billed as the " Des Moines Trump Truck & Car Convoy Grassroots Campaign Event."

I Chased Bernie Sanders for 70 Miles Today

gq.com — I was driving east on US-63, outside of Des Moines, headed to see Bill Clinton stump for his wife Thursday night in Ottumwa. In other words, on my way to see Bill Clinton make the case against Bernie Sanders, a political figure who looms larger now than anybody could have thought just a few months ago.

Scenes from Ted Cruz’s Iowa Nightmare

gq.com — Is this what a political panic attack looks like? Clad Wednesday night in stiff Levi's and a chambray shirt with rolled-up sleeves, Ted Cruz took to the stage in a West Des Moines banquet hall to try something new-to try, somehow, to fend off Donald Trump.

Ted Cruz: The Distinguished Wacko Bird from Texas

gq.com — It was only after Rehnquist died that Cruz felt comfortable wearing his cowboy boots in the Supreme Court-and only then because John Roberts ("a friend for many years") blessed it.

Ben Carson’s Best Buddy on Surviving Campaign Shake-up

gq.com — On New Year's Eve, Ben Carson's presidential campaign-which had spent the last couple months of 2015 in a polling tailspin-seemingly imploded with the resignations of campaign manager Barry Bennett and communications director Doug Watts. They attributed their decisions to quit to ongoing tensions with Armstrong Williams, Carson's business manager and close confidant.

Lindsey Graham to America: I Can’t Take This Anymore

gq.com — It was around 11 o'clock that October night when I got back to my hotel in Manchester, New Hampshire. I'd spent the day chasing Marco Rubio around the state, and now all I wanted to do was get in bed.

@Cheryl707 @HotlineJosh Yes, which goes back to original point. Journos may get sick of it, but voters-who only see him once-are diff beast.

Feb 05, 2016

@Cheryl707 @HotlineJosh Been to speeches & events where speech followed by Q&A. Very good speaker. Just same thing every time.

Feb 05, 2016

@HotlineJosh He doesn't shy away but actually likes (and leans into) the give and take. Read his Q&A w/ @JeffreyGoldberg, for instance.

Feb 05, 2016

@HotlineJosh Definitely. But he can still adjust, deliver a fresh & spontaneous line, esp in response to q's. It's his greatest strength.

Feb 05, 2016

@HotlineJosh Agree. But Rubio was like that even when he wasn't front-running (if you can say he's front-running now).
