Obama snubs Netanyahu? White House turns down meeting Israeli Prime Minister

Israeli sources tell our Wolf Blitzer that at least for now the White House has rejected a request from Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to meet with President Barack Obama this month. The Israeli leader wanted to discuss Iran's disputed nuclear program while he's attending a meeting at the U.N.

Netanyahu, meanwhile, is growing increasingly frustrated with the U.S. for not drawing a so-called "red line" when it comes to Iran's nuclear program, saying the U.S. has no "moral right" to restrain Israel from taking military action of its own.

The moneyball of politics: Using science to win votes

The moneyball of politics - how campaign's really get you to vote, and vote their way.

Clinton the closer? Bill Clinton stumps for Obama in battleground state of Florida

Fresh off his star turn at the Democratic convention, Former President Bill Clinton hits the campaign trail Tuesday for President Barack Obama in a crucial swing state, Florida.

The former president's power is not lost on the White House. A new CNN poll out today puts Obama's approval rating at 51 percent. That's much higher than the two presidents who lost re-election in the last 30 years, but still far below Clinton's high of 60 percent at this point in 1996.

So can Clinton charm undecided voters enough to move the needle for Obama?

OutFront tonight: CNN Contributors John Avlon, Reihan Salam, and Roland Martin.
