Like their recent Google Adwords beta, the new UI is written in Ajax.

Small, medium and large view options let users see more or less news.

Scrolling lets viewers travel back in time to view a particular day’s news events.

Google News Timeline is a great way to view the days news events in a single browser window.

Personalized Google Political News

January 17, 2008

Google News has added a new gadget to track several forms of 2008 Presidential political media activity.

The gadget grabs political videos, news, maps and blogs of candidates from both parties.

You can pick one or all of the past and present Presidential candidates you want to follow.

The candidates with feeds available are:

Democrats:

Joe Biden
Hillary Clinton
Christopher Dodd
John Edwards
Mike Gravel
Dennis Kucinich
Barack Obama
Bill Richardson

Republicans:
Rudolph Giuliani
Mike Huckabee
Duncan Hunter
John McCain
Ron Paul
Mitt Romney
Tom Tancredo
Fred Thompson

I set this new Google political news gadget up under its own tab titled “2008 Presidential Race” in iGoogle to reduce its information footprint and reduce the overload that can occur when I try to digest the Google News home page.Google Political News
