A 2016 Romney candidacy seemed a bit farfetched in the immediate aftermath of 2012. Should Romney run for president again, he would be on the same trajectory as Democrat Hubert Humphrey. Will Romney suffer the same fate should he declare a third presidential candidacy?
The 2016 Presidential Campaign will be a long and excruciatingly dull one. But not if you're a candidate. Run for president, Sarah. You've done more comedy than any politician since Richard Nixon. It was, after all, you who made Saturday Night Live relevant again.
Reagan-era conservatism is a far cry removed from the Ayn Rand-infused Libertarian ideals the MEvangelicals often flirt with these days.
Personally, I'm not holding my breath waiting for rousing choruses of "Kumbaya" to be echoing through the Capitol any time soon.
Immigration, global warming, Cuba, Keystone, with much more to come. For the Left, it comes as a kind of relief. For the Right, the gauntlet has been thrown down and the fight has begun.
Loath as we are to admit it, there was no single Biggest Winner Of 2014, because the award must be handed, collectively, to the Republican Party. A case could be made for Mitch McConnell, since he will win the biggest prize of any Republican next year: control of the United States Senate.
If Jeb does run, he may face Hillary Clinton on the Democratic side. Now, a "Clinton vs. Bush" contest doesn't exactly thrill many people who are looking for perhaps a little more variety (and a little less dynasty) in our presidential choices, but it is indeed worth contemplating at this point, at least if Jeb is serious about running.
Hillary is electorally vulnerable to a Republican campaign that paints her as the candidate of economic extremes.
If conservatives really want citizens in control or prefer to reduce the power and influence of a few individuals and groups, they could team up with liberals who have pushed this for years.
A legal, constitutionally protected way to defeat racism is right in front of us. After all, everyone can relate to not wanting to be viewed as a criminal, regardless of how they feel about climate change or taxes.
The 90-minute undertaking is a call for justice when it's become shockingly clear that injustice looks to be a national scourge no less potent now than it was nine decades ago.
There are plenty of metaphors to choose from, as we all breathlessly watch the Republican Party make their latest attempt at semi-rational governing.
After years of entrenched positioning of both parties, the president finally used his now famous pen and created a new dynamic; the immigration debate in America has changed forever. And that is a good thing for the country.
It's a sign of how far right the Republican Party has moved that John Boehner is the standard bearer for moderate Republicans. But there's a new meaning to the word "moderate" that illuminates the new political reality for the GOP and for the country.
Yes, apparently that's a new word now: "cromnibus." Now, some, editorially-speaking, have been insisting on "CRomnibus" or "Cromnibus," but for the time being here, we've decided that it doesn't qualify for proper-name status in any way.
