What we need in our next President is someone who eschews the limelight, who is fully dedicated to the protection of the constitution, and who consistently calls plays the right way, despite enormous pressure.
As we contemplate our present and future around the 239th anniversary of the Declaration of Independence, are we being myopic? Is our politics focused mainly on marginalia while real change, big change, is being prepped elsewhere?
As Hillary Clinton is at the beginning of her second campaign for president, her husband Bill -- "42" in White House parlance -- appropriately has been laying low, presumably to let her gain the traction she needs to be her own candidate.
President Obama made history when he removed Cuba from the list of countries that are sponsors of terrorism, but not for the reason one might think. The list really has more to do with domestic politics and foreign policy objectives that have had little to do with terrorism.
I have been a supporter of the work of the Clinton Foundation for many years, but seeing the actual work they do on the ground had a profound impact for me. That's one reason I react with such dismay at the ill-informed, political attacks on the Foundation by those who clearly do not know their mission or understand the life-changing work they do.
Many people who are watching the events unfold about Obama and trade are asking, "who is this guy?" What happened to the senator from Illinois who consistently argued that free trade was often unfair trade for average Americans everywhere.
The time has come for the far-left of the Democratic Party to come to grips with reality; Hillary Rodham Clinton can win the Presidency and Bernie Sanders can't.
We know that nonprofits make enormous contributions to society. To protect the integrity of the sector, a revision to this law is needed. In the meantime, nonetheless, I hope you will step forward if you find yourself in a situation in which unethical practices are taking place.
A who's who of Hollywood, music and politics gathered last night at the Skirball Cultural Center in Los Angeles to celebrate the life of Michael King, the much-beloved syndication king behind wildly successful shows passed away suddenly March 27 at age 67 from complications of pneumonia.
You could wonder if her loyalists had been unaware of another possible reading of the metaphor presented by the sight of Roosevelt Island against the skyline of Wall Street -- something her handlers didn't intend: A mockery of the words she was speaking at that very minute.
Hillary Clinton actually supports Barack Obama's trade-policy, and even supports the way in which he is trying to get it through Congress. However, the news-media didn't report it that way.
The Clintons like to sail pretty close to the wind to gain advantage in all circumstances. If we haven't learned that about them by now, we haven't le...
Let me put this as politely as I can. David Brooks has taken leave of his senses. There are no Republicans anywhere in this country who could be elected to the U.S. Senate, let alone the House of Representatives, who would ever, ever be part of any kind of bipartisan governing majority led by a Democratic president -- no matter how moderate he or she is.
Hillary Clinton may have worked for Obama but that does not make her his political ally. Obama has more in common with John Boehner as they have both contributed significantly to polarizing the country.
In this coming election season we need to challenge ourselves and candidates of whatever party and at whatever level to recall the work of citizenship. And we need to ask candidates to stop pretending they will fix our problems by themselves. These are the questions to pose:
