In No Mood For Trophies

June 23, 2014 With the midterm elections less than six months away, it's a good time to take stock of things and even venture a few assumptions.

Hillary Clinton's Hardest Choice Still Lies Ahead

June 16, 2014 A virtual cottage industry has developed from journalists who do little else but cover—or perhaps the better term is obsess over—Hillary Clinton. Every week there seem to be hundreds of thousands, if not millions, of words written about her, particularly as she kicked off her new book tour Tuesday. Considering...

Political Myopia

June 9, 2014 "Where you stand depends on where you sit." It is an age-old expression that I've heard a thousand times and often found quite relevant.

May 19, 2014 The best thing about long airline flights is the time they offer for delving into long reports, uninterrupted by phone calls and emails.

Why Democrats Shouldn't Be Celebrating

May 5, 2014 There seemed to be a pop-the-champagne mood among Democrats after the Obama administration's announcement that 8 million Americans had signed up for health care coverage under the Affordable Care Act.

April 28, 2014 Leading up to last year's Senate debate and the eventual passage of comprehensive immigration reform, GOP Senate leaders and party strategists were privately arguing that failure to do something real on immigration reform, while not necessary to capturing a majority in 2014, was extremely important for 2016. They emphasized that...
