Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid is determined to get a health care bill passed in the Senate by Christmas. This is a momentous time, as John Nichol...
Operating a business on Main Street is a lot different than lecturing at the Harvard Economic Club. The team Obama surrounded himself with has spent way more time in a faculty lounge than in the corner barber shop.
We have to wonder if the US had taken Hummer, especially with its dependence on the military version, and turned it into a government-owned operation, would the US benefit?
The debate over climate change legislation is probably the best example of a bill that seems unrelated to trade, and yet could be rendered almost completely meaningless if it doesn't include real trade reform.
The opt-out is a hard blow to the public option, and potentially a crippling one. When a solution sounds too good to be true -- we can compromise and still get everything we want! -- it probably is.

It's been a crazy rollercoaster of a week, and at the end of it, California can proudly state that not only do we no longer have the most embarrassing...
