As national security advisor, she doesn't have to be a natural diplomat with a gift of politesse. She has to be smart, analytical, articulate, and hard-working. And she has to have the confidence of the president. Which she clearly does.
Under a federal law enacted in 2010, taxpayers now fund efforts by presidential nominees to begin their White House transition efforts even before the election. Unfortunately, it appears that Romney has now turned those taxpayer resources into yet another opportunity to make money.
The same guys who brought us some of the biggest political missteps in American history have now unveiled a chronicle of all the other missteps they had in mind but never got a chance to execute. I'm talking about the Romney Readiness Project 2012.
I sided with Germany when I was 16 and with Japan by my late-20s. Their vehicles were simply superior to American ones in most every way. I now side with America for the first time, having recently purchased my first American car.

My hope is that the GOP's leaders read these numbers and adopt both a tone and policy stances that unite rather than divide.
I'm not one to let the Republicans get away with much, as anyone knows who's read any part of this blog, but there's only one word to describe NPR's coverage of New Jersey Governor Chris Christie's recent lap-band surgery -- unfair.

Given such a sobering approach, a reader could be a little disappointed that after saying "a" authors refrained from spelling out many obvious conclusions.
Mara does not represent the views of the people of the District of Columbia, which makes him wrong for the people of D.C.
It's too easy to just tell legislators that they are wrong. The harder path is to give them the facts and hope they don't ignore them. With only thre...
That's just how it is in politics. One day you're flying high, working out the details of a Donald Trump promotion and the next you're back to being a lowly box monkey. Get back in your cage and organize the boxes like a good little box monkey!
A debate about background checks is something of a lose-lose proposition for advocates of gun regulation. If that proposal fails, it will be extremely difficult to pass any laws regulating gun ownership, but if it passes it will not be a big victory.

Right now the GOP is losing the middle class, Hispanics, women, and millennials like water through a sieve, and for good reason. By changing their messaging, they can stymie the flow and decrease the influence of extremism on the party.
