How Clinton handles the inevitable swipes at her personality, the character of her husband, and Benghazi will determine whether or not she can win the election in 2016.
We have HOW long until the next presidential election? Some of us just want to say: Give it a rest... but there seems little chance. Recently I rode ...
A doctoral student at Columbia University complains that political scientists have been ignoring the 25 million residents of Appalachia. He is correct.
Hillary Clinton celebrated Memorial Day in Chappaqua NY, where she and husband Bill Clinton own a $1.7 million farmhouse, just 40 miles north New Yo...
It's true, brain injury can make a person dangerous. But I wonder if Rove realizes that notoriety is something that could do that too.
Time to ignore the speed limit and speed around the roadblocks, girlfriends.
Reading When God Winks gave me hope that there is a Higher Power who loves his children (me included) unconditionally. The notion that he puts serendipitous events on our paths to lift our spirits was a lovely concept to me.
Career politicians beware. If the Pennsylvania Democratic Primary race for Governor is any indication, the normal rules for politics are a-changing. T...
In truth, it doesn't really matter for Brown which Republican he wallops in November. He will win a record fourth term as California's governor in a landslide, his third in four gubernatorial runs. What difference does it make how much he wins by?
I forgave and forgot. I even grew to accept -- nay admire -- Hillary's silver-medal finish as Secretary of State, a consolation prize I had initially and irritably hoped she'd decline. It was back to life as usual, and I just can't deny it. I got... lazy. I was tired at the prospect of ever feeling that hope again. But I can't be tired any more. None of us can.
The Titanic was promoted as 'unsinkable.' It was touted as a symbol of technological and industrial might... until it crashed into a giant ice cube with catastrophic consequences. Which brings me to today's Republican Party.
While the U.S. government has vigorously protested his treatment, it has proven unwilling to make the diplomatic overtures -- like releasing the Cuban Five -- that could secure his release.
The decathlon that is an American presidential campaign already has seen its first events. What's the state of play? A few things are obvious.
"If you cannot get rid of a family skeleton, you may as well make it dance," said George Bernard Shaw. Or have it attack you in an elevator.
Reagan and Christie clash over whether Obama's cautious "do-no-more-harm" foreign policy fits the times and world after Bush's blunders. And does Fox have a new 2016 anti-Hillary mashup?
This week, Karl Rove suggested that Hillary Clinton might have suffered brain damage in 2012 when she was hospitalized after a fall that left her with a concussion. "Please assure Dr. Rove she's 100 percent," said a Clinton spokesman. Though Rove was obviously warming up his throat for the aria of sleaze that is sure to be sung in 2016, his talk of a candidate's health will hopefully open a wider debate -- though not the one Rove wants. Washington is a town fueled by burnout and overwork, and we now know from science the negative impact that approach to life has on decision-making -- which is clearly the main skill a president needs. No one seriously doubts Clinton's brilliance, but the kind of lives we lead govern whether we have access to our wisdom and best judgment. Rove's provocation aside, the public would be well-served if questions about how candidates plan to avoid burnout become a legitimate part of our political conversation.
