Boy, it isn't every day you get to write a headline like that! But those are the kinds of feelings Ted Cruz seems to bring out in everyone -- left, right, and center.
The Republican Party most loudly proclaims its deep allegiance to our founding document. Yet in recent years, the leaders of the GOP have engaged in an assault on our constitutional system in ways unprecedented in American history:
The American public has had enough of wars, doesn't know what to believe when politicians speak, and is more interested in taking care of things at home. This is not likely to change when the next president takes office, and Clinton and Trump know it.
Hillary Clinton worked for party unity, but only after a very hard-fought and contentious primary season. I offer these reminders up, because now she finds herself in the opposite role. And it seems like everyone's memory has gone fuzzy when recalling the final two months of the 2008 race.
These acts are considered beyond the pale when Donald Trump suggests them, but here's the strangeness of it all: what The Donald is only mouthing off about, a perfectly real American president (and vice president and secretary of defense, and so on) actually did.
The more you know about the current state of the environment the harder it is to remain optimistic about the future. George W. Bush, however, gives me great hope for the future of the planet.
There is at least one initiative, which George W. Bush started and Barack Obama has continued, that will endure as a bipartisan effort that helps define their legacies positively: America's role in drastically reducing malaria-related deaths in sub-Saharan Africa.
Can you believe it? We're in the last year of the presidency of the man who, on his first day in the Oval Office, swore that he would close Guantánamo, and yet it and everything it represents remains part of our all-American world.

Norman Hurns mentors elementary school boys on "life skills and character education" through Brothers Making a Difference, a program he created after he saw a need to inspire and motivate kids growing up in a city hit hard by changing economics and the shrinking auto industry -- Detroit.
To me, all of these questions stem from the fact that Hillary supporters assume that they and Bernie supporters are fundamentally on the same team. Doesn't the fundamental rule of "The enemy of my enemy is my friend" still apply?
It's fascinating to see how Hillary Clinton, the almost Democratic Party nominee for president of the United States, wraps the past sixteen years of American Middle East policy, failures and all, into one package.
A political theme ran through this year's Sarasota Film Festival extending to its yearly event Cinema Tropicale redubbed Cinema Politicale. At the hu...
There is much about Donald Trump that deserves to be criticized. On foreign policy, however, his at times unsophisticated formulations reflect far greater common sense than possessed by his political opponents and establishment critics.
It was a large banner and its message was clear. It read: "Mission Accomplished," and no, I don't mean the classic banner President George W. Bush used to proudly proclaim that "major combat operations in Iraq have ended." I'm actually referring to September 1982.
Donald Trump is indeed a throwback to an earlier era, not to a Hitler or Mussolini I would argue, but rather to a pre-1960's style of American leadership-the kind of robust take-no-prisoners attitude that characterized powerful American leaders like Generals Douglas MacArthur and George Patton
