This is Chris Wallace. In the wake of Joe Biden taking himself out of the race for President, I interviewed the Vice President at his official reside...
In the last few days, Donald Trump in his folksy manner again is defaming the Bush brand. This time, it's this: 9-11 happened under President George W. Bush's watch, so "W" should be held responsible.
U.S. policy toward the People's Republic of China is an important political issue. Trade, proliferation, human rights, cyberwar, security, and more are at stake in how the existing superpower and emerging great power get along in coming years.
The Answer to Trump, Fiorina, Carson & Sanders: Draft Joe Biden & Team
Candidates such as Jeb Bush, John Kasich and Chris Christie all have the potential to position themselves as centrists. Yet, none of them is gaining any significant political traction within the primary race.
Bush's "free stuff" remarks are the latest wrong note in his flagging campaign. The last thing this country needs is a man of inherited wealth and power lecturing the rest of us about mooching.
NBC Meet the Press interviewer Chuck Todd, September 20, 2015: "So do you believe that Islam is consistent with the Constitution?"

Donald Trump keeps on saying stupid, hateful things. About Mexicans, women, John McCain, Megyn Kelly... And he keeps on leading the Republican presidential race. Gosh, could there be a correlation?
As the blood continued to flow out of Megyn Kelly's "wherever," Donald Trump was still sitting comfortably on top of the GOP primary polls. While Trump's supporter base likely represents a relatively small part of the GOP base, this incident is only adding to the GOP's alienation of women.
The longer he continues to dominate the polls, the larger that number will grow. As Joshua Green put it, "The GOP is about the become the party of Trump." But will Trump's bile be so toxic that it stains the party's nominee no matter what?
