The Elephant in the Room

Peter A. Georgescu

In a good negotiation, both parties feel they lost something, while gaining merely a part of what they wanted. We've lost the ability to come to an agreement. Any agreement. Instead, we're looking to candidates who offer extreme solutions.

The biblical story of the Golden Calf goes like this: Moses answers God's call to climb Mount Sinai to receive the two tablets of the Ten Commandments. He stays on the peak for forty days to hear God's instructions.

The very ferocity and coordinated nature of the attacks on Sanders makes clear that the Democratic establishment views Sanders not merely as an annoyance, but as an existential threat. And he may be, at that.

Results, Not Revolution

Richard J. Rosendall

The most experienced and best-prepared presidential candidate this year happens to be a woman. Let us not look for excuses to miss the moment, or make the perfect the enemy of the good. We have too much at stake, and too much work ahead.

"It's the Work That Counts"

Jay Weston | Posted 08.12.2015 | Los Angeles
Jay Weston

Last weekend The New York Times ran a column by a woman named Dominique Browning, and it made a very deep impression on me. The subject was aging, which naturally concerns me as an octogenarian, and she made a few points which have resonated with me and might interest you.

Peggy Noonan on Torture

Steven Shiffrin | Posted 02.16.2015 | Politics
Steven Shiffrin

In her Saturday Wall Street Journal column, Peggy Noonan insists that the Senate torture report should not have been published, but instead reserved for public officials. She apparently regrets that the world will think less of us. Nonetheless, Noonan is ultimately right to maintain that the Senate document is partisan.

Howard's Daily: One Clear Advantage of Charter Schools

Philip K. Howard | Posted 05.11.2014 | Education
Philip K. Howard

The huge advantage of charter schools is that everybody involved -- teachers, parents, and yes, even funders -- have a sense of ownership. The operative question, at all times, is this: "What's the right thing to do?"

The Wisdom of Privacy

Mark Weinstein | Posted 04.20.2014 | Technology
Mark Weinstein

The wisdom of privacy is fundamental to the healthy evolution and future of human beings. It is perhaps the most essential ingredient of the natural order and balance in the social milieu and for a healthy human existence on earth. It makes the privacy revolution we are facing real, relevant, and vital to preserving ourselves as societies and individuals.

Howard's Daily: A Better Conservative Critique

Philip K. Howard | Posted 04.05.2014 | Politics
Philip K. Howard

Today's mainstream conservatives are predictably anti-big government -- a theme that ignores how government oversight is often essential to freedom in an interdependent society. Just as freedom requires cops on the street, so too it requires inspectors to safeguard against unsanitary restaurants and dingy nursing homes.

Freedom From Unauthorized Intrusion

Mark Weinstein | Posted 01.23.2014 | Technology
Mark Weinstein

Merriam-Webster's online dictionary defines privacy as "freedom from unauthorized intrusion." The United States government defines privacy as "freedom from unauthorized intrusion, except by us." Personally I prefer the former definition.

Scandals are not merely screw-ups, stupidities, mistakes, policy disagreements. They imply elements of willful deception, illegality, corruption or immorality.

BOTH SIDES NOW: Obama Doctrine Recasts W's War

HuffPost Radio | Posted 05.26.2013 | Politics
HuffPost Radio

Ron Reagan and Mary Matalin debate Obama's speech refuting Bush-Cheneyism on terrorism. Was it transformational or largely rhetorical? No more treating local thugs as UBL? And despite Noonan's & Will's best efforts to blur Obama & Nixon, 44 has the Teflon of 40. 2011-11-29-20111107bothsidesnow.jpg

The Crazy Uncle Party

Our national politics increasingly resembles a party in which your crazy uncle got hold of the karaoke microphone and won't give it back until he finishes a paranoid rant. Maybe if you pour him another Manhattan, he'll pass out before all your guests leave.

Rather than jumping into the heated battle of competing narratives about Obama's three "scandals" or ignoring this high-stakes story, follow it for insights on how to influence by labeling.

I spoke at a writing conference in Michigan where she was the keynoter, and I can unequivocally say she gave the worst keynote I'd ever heard anywhere, despite her being Ronald Reagan's speech writer. I am not exaggerating about how awful she was.
