Behind the public acclaim for Sen. Joseph Lieberman as the Democratic vice presidential nominee is deep discontent among prominent liberals over Vice President Al Gore's choice.

The modern age has been called "the age of reason," as distinguished from past ages of faith. However, ideological faith has now begun displacing both reason and facts.

Michelle Malkin | August 11, 2000

Four years ago, I wrote a check to the Make-A-Wish Foundation to honor an extraordinary kid diagnosed with brain cancer. Now, the charity has dishonored him by caving in to political correctness and abandoning other terminally ill children who share this boy's passions.

Ann Coulter | August 10, 2000

At least we know Al Gore is still breathing. Choosing Sen. Joseph Lieberman as his running mate may not be the amazingly bold stroke that the press is hyperventilating about, but it does show the presence of brain waves.

Thomas Sowell | August 10, 2000

One of the things I have been falsely accused of many times over the years is advising blacks to lift themselves up by their own bootstraps.

Brent Bozell | August 10, 2000

It tells you just how low society's standards have fallen when approximately seventeen million people can be found glued to a TV set for four hours over six days watching a house full of people talking.

Larry Elder | August 10, 2000

"Spiraling" gas prices deeply concern Vice President Al Gore. After all, Gore condemns oil company profits as "enormous and completely unreasonable," and says that "Big Oil is gouging American consumers."

Emmett Tyrrell | August 10, 2000

Wait a minute, I thought we had put the Boy President's moral life behind us! The media's sages said Americans have had enough of this lurid stuff. We were told that even the Republicans understood.

Bruce Bartlett | August 10, 2000

On Aug. 2, Gary Gensler, the Treasury Department official responsible for the federal debt, announced that $221 billion of the debt will be paid off this year.

"A funny thing happened to me on the way to the state AFL-CIO convention today," an elated Sen. Joseph Lieberman told the Connecticut labor gathering in Hartford Monday morning.

Politicians, lawyers, assorted rascals and do-gooders are rapidly undermining our common-law rules of torts, while the rest of us either applaud their efforts or are indifferent.

David Limbaugh | August 09, 2000

There is something about George W. Bush that simultaneously confounds pundits and appeals to swing voters. He doesn't fit the profile of the ordinary presidential candidate, which leaves pundits perplexed and the electorate impressed.

Debra J. Saunders | August 09, 2000

Here is the balance that Sen. Joe Lieberman of Connecticut brings to the Democratic ticket.

Phyllis Schlafly | August 09, 2000

Sen. Jesse Helms has been calling for the United Nations to reform itself and reduce its bloated budgets, but the U.N. reform agenda now being implemented is very different from what Helms has in mind (

Bill Murchison | August 09, 2000

In Senator Joe Lieberman, Democratic nominee presumptive for vice president, Al Gore has a certified good guy. Good guys, in national politics, don't come a dime a carload.

Maggie Gallagher | August 09, 2000

The first concrete result of George W. Bush's brilliant convention-closer on the Democrats was evident Saturday when President Clinton vetoed marriage tax relief.

Jack Kemp | August 09, 2000

Colin Powell was certainly right when he told the Republican Convention that for too long America has been divided over the issue of race and color and has paid a high price for not living up to the spirit and letter of the Declaration of Independence.

Bruce Bartlett | August 09, 2000

The liberal media are baffled by George W. Bush's extraordinary popularity among the Republican Party's right wing, despite a campaign and a convention noticeably lacking in traditional "red meat" conservative issues and rhetoric.

Jack Kemp | August 09, 2000

Colin Powell was certainly right when he told the Republican Convention that for too long America has been divided over the issue of race and color and has paid a high price for not living up to the spirit and letter of the Declaration of Independence.

William F. Buckley | August 09, 2000

The political world is having a ball on the Lieberman business, based mostly on the now-you-see-it, now-you-don't aspect of it. As a human being, Joe Lieberman is a resplendent example of the species.

Ann Coulter | August 08, 2000

You never become so aware of race as when reading a New York Times news report on a Republican gathering.

Mona Charen | August 08, 2000

It may sound peculiar for a Protestant to turn to a Jew for a Catholic dispensation, but that's what seems to explain Vice President Gore's selection of Sen. Joseph Lieberman as his running mate.

Linda Chavez | August 08, 2000

He's every Republican's favorite Democrat. Sen. Joseph Lieberman, Al Gore's pick for vice president, is the epitome of moral rectitude and political independence.

Jacob Sullum | August 08, 2000

My wife and I both drive cars that are getting on in years: a 1992 Honda Accord inherited from her parents, and a 1989 Ford Crown Victoria inherited from mine.

William F. Buckley | August 08, 2000

The convention made clear not only the need to commend the Republican Party to the favor of Hispanic voters, but also the evanescence in America of ethnocentrism.

Robert Novak | August 08, 2000

One of the largely overlooked but most important applause lines in George W. Bush's remarkable acceptance speech last Thursday night came as an invigorating surprise to conservative doubters about the governor of Texas: "No one in America should have to pay a third of their income to the federal government."

Ann Coulter | August 07, 2000

At least you could print what John Rocker said. The latest in a long list of "false" (subject to later revision) stories circulated about the Clintons comes from Jerry Oppenheimer's excellent little page-turner, "State of a Union,"

Brent Bozell | August 07, 2000

Any observer of political convention coverage would have noticed once again this week that it seems there's no way for the Republicans to win with the press.

David Limbaugh | August 07, 2000

To me, the most interesting thing about the Republican convention is the mainstream media coverage. They are absolutely confounded with this upbeat display of class

Maggie Gallagher | August 07, 2000

Al and Hillary had a plan. Bill Clinton moved the country a good ways left, or so they thought. Newt Gingrich was history, and Americans clearly hated the idea of right-wing revolutionaries upsetting the country's rosy applecart.

William F. Buckley | August 07, 2000

Gen. Colin Powell is a formidable asset of the GOP and indeed the nation. That he is himself black is providential. If he were a Scandinavian, one likes to think that he'd have risen as fast as he has.

John Leo | August 07, 2000

Quiz time. What is "compassionate conservatism"? Some possible answers:

Gov. George W. Bush's campaign strategists figure the Democratic attack on vice-presidential nominee Dick Cheney's old congressional voting record will end within two weeks.
