Mike Pence Embraces Foreign Policy That GOP Voters Left Behind

October 5, 2016 Pundits say that Mike Pence performed better in his debate than Donald Trump did in his. I’m not so sure. Yes, Pence was better stylistically. He spoke more crisply. He more deftly pivoted away from uncomfortable subjects. But on both trade and national security, Pence hewed to the established conservative...

Hillary Clinton Fails to Offer a Foreign-Policy Vision

September 8, 2016 The best thing you can say about Hillary Clinton’s performance at Wednesday night’s Commander in Chief Forum is this: Matt Lauer was worse. Lauer’s first real question to Clinton concerned her emails. He then asked, by my count, five follow-up questions on the subject. He then turned to a handpicked...

Do Republicans Still Think America Is Exceptional?

July 21, 2016 Maybe Donald Trump is lucky that Ted Cruz knifed him on Wednesday night at the Republican National Convention. Otherwise, the big story would be Trump’s new interview with The New York Times. Trump’s most astonishing policy statement is his declaration that America would only defend the Baltic states from Russian...

No, Rubio, ISIS Attacks Are Not About 'Hating Freedom’

July 1, 2016 On Wednesday on CNN, Marco Rubio said the Islamic State, which Turkish officials believe carried out this week’s attack at Istanbul’s Ataturk airport, had two motivations. First, “they ultimately want them to be a part of the caliphate.” Sure, but “ultimately,” ISIS wants every place on earth to be part...

The Real Scandal of Hillary Clinton's Emails

May 28, 2016 In a February 23 hearing on a Freedom of Information Act request for Hillary Clinton’s official State Department emails—emails that don’t exist because Hillary Clinton secretly conducted email on a private Blackberrry connected to a private server—District Court Judge Emmet G. Sullivan exclaimed, “How in the world could this happen?”...

Battle of the Surrogates

May 26, 2016 On Tuesday, the Clinton and Trump campaigns did what they will do pretty much every day between now and November: try to define their opponent in the media. Hillary Clinton’s message for the day was: Donald Trump screws the little guy. At a campaign rally, Clinton herself attacked Trump for...

Clinton's Battle Plan

May 3, 2016 As they look ahead to the general election, some commentators envision a campaign in which Donald Trump attacks viciously and Hillary Clinton makes a virtue of her refusal to stoop to his level. “I think Trump’s method will be to turn on the insult comedy against Hillary Clinton,” declared GOP...

Can Clinton Reconstruct Trump Supporters' Hope?

April 1, 2016 Hillary Clinton will soon face the strangest general-election campaign in modern American history. In a conventional sense, it’s the easiest. That’s because her likely opponent, Donald Trump, is almost certainly too unpopular to win. A full two-thirds of Americans view him unfavorably. To be sure, Clinton’s unfavorability rating is high...

What Trump Got Right About Brussels

March 23, 2016 Right after the attacks in Brussels on Tuesday, Donald Trump did something bizarre. He spoke the truth. Appearing on Fox and Friends, the GOP presidential frontrunner declared that, “This all happened because frankly there is no assimilation.” OK, Trump’s comment wasn’t entirely true. The attacks are also likely related to...

Donald Trump and Ted Cruz Should Learn These Lessons From Belgium

March 23, 2016 Right after the attacks in Brussels on Tuesday, Donald Trump did something bizarre. He spoke the truth. Appearing on Fox and Friends, the GOP presidential frontrunner declared that, “This all happened because frankly there is no assimilation.” OK, Trump’s comment wasn’t entirely true.
