President Obama should encourage Senator Reid to oversee the elimination of the filibuster now, while neither party controls Congress, so that legislators have time to adjust before the return of one-party rule and the consequent enactment of more aggressive legislation.
Familiar faces surround the talks of a fiscal cliff compromise. Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Ca.), S...
This should not be so hard. The fiscal cliff is nothing more than one more set of self-imposed deadlines that Congress put in place so that they could comply with their own rules. We have seen this before.
Welcome to term two, Mr. President, where you will be expected to be more of a magician than a mechanic. What rabbits can you pull out of your hat?
Why were fossil fuel interests bankrolling ads attacking wind power in Iowa, a key swing state for their candidate Mitt Romney and a state where the polls showed overwhelmingly that voters supported wind power?
In our "after report," Reagan and Matalin discuss whether 2012 turned on Messina's GOTV or Obama's views on government and taxes? Did GOP lose because of messenger or message -- both? Or is it, as Chou en lai said of French Revolution, "too soon to tell?"

Now is the time for action if you agree there should be a stronger law to protect your kids from toxic chemicals found in your couches, carpets, household cleaners, canned foods and more.
Mitt Romney (R-MA) says that people who do not pay income taxes are not accountable, do not take responsibility for their lives. There are thousands of millionaires and many corporations who do not pay income taxes. Indeed, Mitt may be one of them himself.
It's time. After 11 long years it's time for us to return to where we were in those first few moments after the terrorist attacks of 9/11 and choose t...
As Mitt's dad noted, tax returns over a short period can be manipulated. By failing to provide verification of any kind, Mitt is failing to create trust among the electorate that he will ultimately need to govern, if he is elected.
Spitzer and Matalin debate five new presidential ads -- which are telling, tasteless, true? Then, is Harry Reid a lying McCarthyite or brilliant Machiavellian on Romney's hidden taxes...and is Ryan right or merely far-right?
American greatness relies on our relationships with neighbors, both near and distant. The way out of the Great Recession is not economic isolationism, but an embrace of our nation's heritage as a global trade leader.
