The Hunt for Willing Volunteers

February 8, 2005 Diane Farrell is the Democrat who last November held longtime Republican Rep. Christopher Shays (CT-04) to the lowest winning percentage (52 percent) of his career. She was in Washington recently to check in with top House Democrats and fundraisers. She's hesitant to commit to challenging Shays a second time, despite...

Fork in the Road

February 1, 2005 House Ways and Means Committee Chairman Bill Thomas, R-Calif., may well be the prickliest and most explosive lawmaker on Capitol Hill, but the White House would be well advised to listen to him on Social Security and tax reform. What Thomas may lack in social graces, he makes up for...

Follow the Leader?

January 25, 2005 Now that both President Bush and the 109th Congress have been sworn in, the real work is just beginning. It's hard to remember when a new Congress and a re-elected president faced such monumental challenges under such difficult circumstances. Many Republican members of Congress -- particularly those in potentially competitive...

Rallying Cry

January 18, 2005 Saying that the next major speech to be given by a president is "the most important of his career" has become a tired cliche.

Bernard Sanders of Vermont as a Democrat. Before the Nov. 2 general...

Up or Down

December 21, 2004 At some point in the next few months, Senate Republicans will decide whether to exercise the so-called "nuclear option," which would end the use of filibusters to block judicial nominees. Fights over presidential appointments to the federal bench are nothing new. Two of the most notable involved President Nixon's failed...

Election 2006

December 14, 2004 Early in the 2004 election cycle, it became clear that Senate Democrats were in an unenviable situation. Even though Republicans held just a shaky one-seat majority, the playing field was decidedly tilted in the GOP's favor. Not only did the Democrats have to defend 19 seats, compared with 15 for...

The Dealmaker

December 7, 2004 Much has already been written lamenting the retirement of Democratic Sen. John Breaux of Louisiana, who for years has been an important bridge between Democrats and Republicans, conservatives and liberals, in a polarized and bitter Congress. Breaux's moderation, personality, manner, and legislative style enabled him to develop close relationships on...

Taming the Wild Cards

November 30, 2004 One of the most fascinating shows to watch for the next two years is a drama focusing on what Republicans will be able to do with their unexpectedly large 55-45 majority in the United States Senate. While most observers anticipated that Republicans would hold onto their majority, or maybe increase...
