O’Malley on the Bubble for Next Democratic Debate

January 8, 2016 Could Mar­tin O’Mal­ley be the odd man out at next week’s Demo­crat­ic de­bate in South Car­o­lina? Newly re­leased cri­ter­ia from NBC News, which is host­ing the de­bate, sug­gests he’s right on the cusp of the re­quired polling num­bers to par­ti­cip­ate in the Jan. 17 gath­er­ing in Char­le­ston, South Car­o­lina—but the...

Clinton Says ISIS Is Using Trump as a Recruiting Tool. Is She Right?

December 21, 2015 Hil­lary Clin­ton said Sat­urday night dur­ing the Demo­crat­ic de­bate that Is­lam­ic State of Ir­aq and Syr­ia is us­ing Don­ald Trump’s com­ments about Muslim im­mig­ra­tion as a re­cruit­ing tool. “He is be­com­ing IS­IS’s best re­cruit­er,” she said, dur­ing a dis­cus­sion about for­eign policy and the rise of IS­IS in the Middle...

December 15, 2015 After the San Bern­ardino at­tacks, Demo­crats were eager to talk about gun policy. Re­pub­lic­ans were eager to dis­cuss do­mest­ic ter­ror­ism. Hil­lary Clin­ton wants to the two top­ics in­to one con­ver­sa­tion. At a coun­terter­ror­ism speech in Min­neapol­is Tues­day, Clin­ton cri­ti­cized Re­pub­lic­ans for re­fus­ing to make a con­nec­tion between ac­cess­ible guns and...

Sanders Looks to Reconcile National Security and Socialism

November 20, 2015 Bernie Sanders had two goals Thursday af­ter­noon when he stepped on stage for his ma­jor speech at Geor­getown: to fi­nally of­fer an ex­plan­a­tion of what he means when he de­scribes him­self as a “Demo­crat­ic so­cial­ist,” and to prove his bona fides on for­eign policy is­sues. Try­ing to ac­com­plish them to­geth­er...

State Releases Another Trove of Hillary Clinton Emails

November 2, 2015 The State De­part­ment re­leased more than 7,000 pages of Hil­lary Clin­ton’s emails Wed­nes­day af­ter­noon, a move that will provide more in­sight in­to Clin­ton’s four-year ten­ure as sec­ret­ary of State but is un­likely to in­clude any bomb­shells. The new trove of emails—the sixth such re­lease from State—came largely from mes­sages that...

October 22, 2015 In a highly an­ti­cip­ated ap­pear­ance be­fore the Benghazi Com­mit­tee on Cap­it­ol Hill, Hil­lary Clin­ton on Thursday said she was there to hon­or the memory of the four Amer­ic­ans killed in the 2012 at­tacks and called for bi­par­tis­an re­spect and co­oper­a­tion in the wake of ques­tions about “par­tis­an agen­das.” “We should...

October 21, 2015 Vice Pres­id­ent Joe Biden will not run for pres­id­ent in 2016, he an­nounced at the White House Wed­nes­day, put­ting an end to weeks and months of spec­u­la­tion about wheth­er he would enter and re­shape the race for the Demo­crat­ic nom­in­a­tion. “As my fam­ily and I have worked through the griev­ing...

Pressure Points as Clinton, Sanders Square Off in First Debate

October 13, 2015 LAS VE­GAS—When the 2016 Demo­crat­ic pres­id­en­tial field con­venes here Tues­day night, they’ll do so with a clear schism in the field: It’s Hil­lary Clin­ton, Bernie Sanders, and every­body else. And so when the five do meet for their first de­bate, they’ll be do­ing it with very dif­fi­cult goals in mind....

October 9, 2015 As House Re­pub­lic­ans des­cen­ded in­to chaos Thursday with the sur­prise an­nounce­ment that Rep. Kev­in Mc­Carthy is no longer seek­ing to run for House Speak­er, one group of people had cause for cel­eb­ra­tion: Hil­lary Clin­ton and her al­lies.
