Verbal Impact

June 28, 2005 Someday I may write a book about the 100 most repeated mistakes in politics. Without question, one will be comparing any person, place, thing, action, or circumstance to the Holocaust, Nazi Germany, the Gestapo, or Nazi concentration camps. At least once a year, a politician or group gets into hot...

Midterm Mixers

June 21, 2005 Think about all the problems for Republicans and the White House to worry about: Americans are increasingly pessimistic about the economy, with concerns about jobs clearly trumping strong economic growth numbers; as American casualties in Iraq are mounting, public opinion surveys show patience for the war wearing thin; President Bush's...

Close Calls

June 14, 2005 SEATTLE -- Last week's court decision upholding Democrat Christine Gregoire's victory over Republican Dino Rossi in Washington state's 2004 gubernatorial election serves as a reminder that the only time the inadequacies of our election-administration system draw attention is when that system breaks down. By then, the atmosphere tends to be...

High Anxiety

June 7, 2005 If the Capitol physician tested all the House Republicans these days, I wouldn't be surprised if the results showed that their blood pressure has shot up from the readings of six months ago -- or even three months ago. House Republicans find themselves buffeted by a wide array of emotions,...

Moderate Success

May 27, 2005 For much of the past six months, official Washington has been obsessed with the idea that Senate Republicans might pull the trigger on the so-called nuclear option. Journalists have consumed barrels of ink and pundits have talked themselves blue over whether Republicans had the votes, what banning the filibustering of...

GOP's Tumbling Numbers

May 24, 2005 Even though the GOP is very unlikely to lose control of the House or Senate next year, any Republican in a potentially competitive race would be wise to call a pollster. Recent surveys -- nationwide and in key states and districts -- indicate that support for the GOP has deteriorated...

Quick and Dirty

May 17, 2005 Perhaps it is my imagination, but the men and women nominated to the federal bench over the past 25 years by presidents of both parties seem considerably more ideological than their predecessors and considerably less likely to command the respect of a broad swath of the legal community. The judicial...

Growing Pains

May 10, 2005 The Senate fight over filibustering President Bush's judicial nominations and, before that, the congressional intervention in the Terry Schiavo case expose a large and growing rift between the "sacred" and "secular" factions of the Republican Party. The "seculars" are primarily concerned about how government affects business. The "sacreds," while they...

A Date With 2008

May 3, 2005 Only in a place as obsessed with politics as Washington could an election more than three and a half years away dominate so many discussions. But, heading into the first presidential campaign in 80 years without an incumbent president or vice president running, the possibilities are fascinating. On the Republican...

Start Your Engines!

April 25, 2005 Just as everyone was trying to divine the meaning of the selection of Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger to be the 265th pope, a different and unexpected puff of smoke became visible -- a puff that signaled independent Sen. Jim Jeffords's decision not to seek a fourth term. Jeffords, 70, who served...

  • Data-Centric Security vs. Database-Level Security

    Database-level encryption had its origins in the 1990s and early 2000s in response to very basic risks which largely revolved around the theft of servers, backup tapes and other physical-layer assets. As noted in Verizon’s 2014, Data Breach Investigations Report (DBIR)1, threats today are far more advanced and dangerous.
