If William Kristol wants to have a real debate on the real issues, let's have it. Let's have a debate on the neocon military policy of preemptive war, interventionism and nation-building versus a more reasoned approach, with use of the military as a last resort.
Sure, there's strong precedent for confirming presidential cabinet appointments and valuing competence and credentials. But McCain and Graham in their infinite wisdom are pointing to a way more entertaining path.
As President Obama prepares for a second term, it is a certainty that there will be turnover in his Cabinet and among political appointees across all ...
Unlike Supreme Court Justices, these yet-unknowns rarely make an appearance into the thousands of hours of campaign speeches, written material, or off-the-record hints. And maybe -- just maybe -- that should change.
Obama saw that being President wasn't about him or about Clinton, but about serving the American people who were entrusting their future to him.
I support Obama's presidency because I am convinced that he is seized by this biblical vision of just and fair and compassionate governance. Yet, the presidency is a political position.
If social network analysis is so powerful, why isn't it used more often--in intelligence and elsewhere?
Speaking from the White House, Mr. Obama said, "I want to send a strong warning to this country's bankers," before turning to his economic team and saying, "I don't mean you guys."
Yes, there needs to be a cabinet shake-up. It's time to yank Tim Geithner and Larry Summers from the game. Their pro-bank, pro-Wall Street policies are failing. Isn't it obvious?
Evidence of Obama's plans to turn the US into a socialist state comes in the transcript of a recent Obama cabinet meeting, leaked to this reporter by an anonymous source.
It's not that I object to critical thinking. We need it. Yet, while we're reminding Obama of his promises and scrutinizing him on his decisions, we need to stand with him.

It is not unusual for a president to want to be his own secretary of state, but rarely has a secretary so badly wanted to be her own president.
The task awaiting Obama was massive. And yet, there is a rush to decide how he's doing after 100 days. Donnie Walsh gets two years to revive the Knicks, but the president only gets 100 days to fix the country?
We're faced with a charismatic, hard working, media savvy president and a somewhat bland, beltway, Wall Street cabinet.
