CNN Anti-GOP Bias?

I’m not one for conspiracy theories, but I found it amusing to look at this page CNN has up on its Website listing the current and potential presidential candidates in both parties. What’s interesting is that for the Republican candidates, it highlights their election losses or political setbacks, whereas its descriptions of Democrats are neutral or highlight their victories.

For example, on the GOP side:

Rudy Giuliani: The two-term mayor of New York City once ran for the U.S. Senate, but dropped out in 2000.

John McCain: The U.S. senator from Arizona ran for the GOP presidential nomination in 2000, but lost to George W. Bush.

Mitt Romney: The former Massachusetts governor made an unsuccessful run for the U.S. Senate in 1994.

Meanwhile on the Democratic side:

Hillary Clinton: The former first lady is now in her second term as the junior senator from New York.

Barack Obama: The former lawyer and state senator won a U.S. Senate seat in Illinois in 2004.

John Edwards: The former U.S. senator from North Carolina was the Democratic 2004 vice presidential candidate.

Al Gore: The former vice president ran for president in 2000 and now campaigns against global warming.

So McCain lost to President Bush, but Gore merely ran against him? Edwards didn’t lose in 2004? Romney’s Senate loss in 1994 is more relevant than his 2002 victory, but it’s irrelevant that Obama got crushed in a 2000 Congressional race?
