A Momentous Week, and a GOP That Needs to Change

June 30, 2015 The momentous events of the last week can be interpreted in numerous ways. But one thing has become increasingly clear: The Republican Party needs to change. One of the key organizing principles—an obsession, even—of Republicans in recent years has been their vehement opposition to the Affordable Care Act. This has...

Bernie Sanders and the Age Question

June 16, 2015 In recent weeks, many have started treating Sen. Bernie Sanders' campaign for the 2016 Democratic presidential nomination seriously, but without addressing or even acknowledging the elephant in the room—Sanders' age.

A Tough Question for 2016 Candidates

May 19, 2015 Several developments over the past week in the presidential race seem worthy of note.

Bush, Clinton and the Fatigue Factor

January 17, 2015 There are some surprising events that warrant being taken very seriously; others, well, not so much. Prior to Thanksgiving, it looked pretty unlikely that former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush would actually pull the trigger and seek the 2016 Republican presidential nomination, even though it was obvious that he personally wanted...

October 20, 2014 With just a little more than two weeks to go before the midterm election, Democrats are increasingly in need of a break or two to salvage their Senate majority.
