Bill Clinton Tries to Humanize His Wife With a Political Love Story

July 27, 2016 PHIL­ADELPHIA—His­tory was made here Tues­day, with Hil­lary Clin­ton break­ing the pro­ver­bi­al glass ceil­ing to be­come the first wo­man pres­id­en­tial nom­in­ee in Amer­ic­an his­tory. But it was Bill Clin­ton’s clos­ing con­ven­tion speech that stole the show. He made the kind of case for Hil­lary Clin­ton that only he could, of­fer­ing a...

On Convention’s First Night, Bernie Sanders and His Supporters Upstage Clinton

July 26, 2016 PHIL­ADELPHIA—Hil­lary Clin­ton was greeted as an in­ter­loper at her own con­ven­tion, at least judged by the chilly re­cep­tion she re­ceived on the first day of the Demo­crat­ic Na­tion­al Con­ven­tion. Amid a hack­ing scan­dal that ex­posed the Demo­crat­ic Na­tion­al Com­mit­tee’s bi­as to­wards Clin­ton dur­ing the primar­ies, Bernie Sanders del­eg­ates were in...

For Trump, It’s Not Morning In America Anymore

July 22, 2016 CLEV­E­LAND—Don­ald Trump’s clos­ing speech at the Re­pub­lic­an con­ven­tion was one of the most pess­im­ist­ic pieces of polit­ic­al rhet­or­ic in re­cent his­tory. Most can­did­ates, even in times of tur­moil, try to make the case that hope is on the way. Trump’s speech, by con­trast, offered a lit­any of bad news so...

Cruz Roils GOP Convention With Last Stand Against Trump

July 21, 2016 CLEV­E­LAND—It was sab­ot­age night at the Re­pub­lic­an Na­tion­al Con­ven­tion on Wed­nes­day. Trump’s rival, Sen. Ted Cruz, used his prime-time speak­ing op­por­tun­ity to de­liv­er a con­ser­vat­ive stem­winder dis­tin­guished by his re­fus­al to en­dorse the GOP pres­id­en­tial nom­in­ee on stage. “Stand, and speak, and vote your con­science, vote for can­did­ates up and...

Republicans Slam Clinton, But Don’t Make the Case for Trump

July 19, 2016 CLEV­E­LAND—When Pat Smith offered emo­tion­al testi­mony about how the gov­ern­ment failed to pro­tect her son dur­ing the Benghazi at­tacks, Don­ald Trump was call­ing in­to Bill O’Re­illy’s Fox News show to pre­view his speech at the con­ven­tion. As Smith power­fully re­coun­ted Hil­lary Clin­ton’s un­re­spons­ive­ness to her fam­ily’s plight, Trump at­tacked John...

Why Gingrich Is Right for Trump

July 13, 2016 Now that Don­ald Trump is be­com­ing more de­pend­ent on out­side coun­sel for ad­vice, he ap­pears to be slowly morph­ing in­to a more con­ven­tion­al pres­id­en­tial can­did­ate. And as he mulls over his op­tions for a run­ning mate, he’s be­ing urged to pick In­di­ana Gov. Mike Pence, the most bor­ing, check-the-box fi­nal­ist....

Why Hillary Clinton Should Worry About Brexit

June 27, 2016 The out­come of the pres­id­en­tial elec­tion will hinge on wheth­er dis­af­fected voters be­lieve it is a choice between two can­did­ates or—like Brexit—a ref­er­en­dum on the dir­ec­tion of the coun­try. Hil­lary Clin­ton holds ad­vant­ages over Trump in nearly every way can­did­ates are usu­ally meas­ured: She’s qual­i­fied for the job, she’s run­ning...

Obama Floats Above the Malaise in His Job Approval Ratings

May 25, 2016 On pa­per, 2016 has been a fairly tu­mul­tu­ous year for Pres­id­ent Obama. The pres­id­ent’s seni­or for­eign policy strategist, Ben Rhodes, ad­mit­ted to spin­ning mis­lead­ing nar­rat­ives to sell a con­tro­ver­sial nuc­le­ar deal with Ir­an. The eco­nomy con­tin­ues to sput­ter along, with quarterly GDP growth ad­van­cing at its low­est level in two...

With Vote for Trump, Indiana Spurns its Conservative Roots

May 4, 2016 Indi­ana has long been home base for con­ser­vat­ives. Mike Pence was one of the bright­est con­ser­vat­ive stars in the House be­fore be­com­ing In­di­ana’s gov­ernor. The last two pres­id­ents of the an­ti­tax Club for Growth rep­res­en­ted the state in Con­gress. In 2012, anti­es­tab­lish­ment con­ser­vat­ives scored one of their most con­sequen­tial (if...

The Lesser of Three Evils

April 25, 2016 Real­ity-check time: Don­ald Trump’s re­sound­ing vic­tory in his home state of New York didn’t sig­ni­fic­antly al­ter his pro­spects for win­ning the ne­ces­sary del­eg­ates be­fore the Clev­e­land con­ven­tion. He won 89 out of 95 del­eg­ates in his home state, not many more than ex­pec­ted. He’s still on pace to fin­ish short...
