Despite Dick Cheney's problems as the Republican vice-presidential candidate, George W. Bush plans to campaign with him more rather than hide him for the balance of the campaign.

Ann Coulter | September 15, 2000

Maybe George W. Bush couldn't name the leader of little Swaziland last November in a pop quiz administered by a radio jock (who apparently could name very little himself with a No. 2 pencil back in high school). But Bush can name the former Washington bureau chief of The New York Times, and with some precision.

Thomas Sowell | September 15, 2000

Many people were amazed when Governor George W. Bush proposed reforming Social Security because Social Security was considered to be "the third rail" of American politics.

Michelle Malkin | September 15, 2000

Hillary Clinton and Rick Lazio agree on one thing: New York deserves medical pork. The two U.S. Senate candidates debated this week, both eager to highlight what the first lady called their "big differences."

Brent Bozell | September 15, 2000

From coast to coast, folks are counting the days until the Clinton presidency ends. But would the end of the Clinton presidency really mean the end of Clintonism?

Mona Charen | September 15, 2000

This year, the press (with the notable exception of Fox News) seems to have taken a collective breath of helium, producing news judgment that is even more frothy and insubstantial than usual -- but still, as always, biased toward the Democrats.

Oliver North | September 15, 2000

A few years ago, my wife and I were invited to Time magazine's 75th anniversary party in New York. Since we're not regulars on the Big Apple social circuit, Betsy and I were surprised to be asked to hobnob with the likes of The Donald and his paramour, Rudy Giuliani, George Steinbrenner, assorted diplomats and sundry big wigs.

Maggie Gallagher | September 15, 2000

Like almost 9 million other Americans, I have diabetes, a chronic, incurable and eventually life-threatening disease. Al Gore has made one thing very clear: He very much wants my vote.

Robert Novak | September 15, 2000

George W. Bush looked good campaigning in Florida this week, his issues hardened and his format changed. But his spending a day and a half here shows how the presidential campaign has been transformed in the four weeks since the Democratic convention.

Thomas Sowell | September 14, 2000

Now that the presidential candidates are trying to outbid each other for the votes of the elderly, by offering to have the government pay for their prescription drugs, it is time for the voters to start thinking for themselves -- if that is still possible, after decades of dumbed-down education.

Michelle Malkin | September 14, 2000

"I want to live. I do not want to die." So spoke an unborn baby to a Massachusetts judge. If only more pro-abortion feminists and politicians would open their deaf ears to the voices of the innocents.

Brent Bozell | September 14, 2000

A new survey of more than 4,000 television viewers finds that 1) more than one-third of them have seen programming they consider "personally offensive or morally objectionable," and that they associate such programming more with broadcast networks than with cable channels;

Larry Elder | September 14, 2000

With "experts" like these, bring on the amateurs. In California, voters approved an initiative to end traditional bilingual education programs.

Debra J. Saunders | September 14, 2000

If all goes as planned, Los Alamos physicist Wen Ho Lee will plead guilty tomorrow to one felony count of "unlawful gathering of national defense information." He originally had been indicted on 59 charges concerning top-secret national security documents.

Emmett Tyrrell | September 14, 2000

I am in Prague, and you should be, too. The city has realized much of the radiant promise discernible to visitors from the West in the early 1990s, after Communism's fall.

Walter E. Williams | September 13, 2000

One political question we have to answer is whether George W. Bush or Albert Gore shall be president, and just which party will control the House of Representatives and the Senate. But I'd suggest that there's a far more important long-run question we must answer:

David Limbaugh | September 13, 2000

I know there are many of you who disagree with our founding fathers that when it comes to electing the president, character is vitally important.

Phyllis Schlafly | September 13, 2000

Can a judge constitutionally order a controversial drug to be given to a child over the opposition of his parents? Such action by a Family Court judge in Albany, N.Y., has touched off a national debate pitting public schools and the courts against parental rights.

Bruce Bartlett | September 13, 2000

In recent days, there have been widespread protests throughout Europe by drivers angry at skyrocketing fuel prices. While the cause of the price spike may lie with OPEC and the falling Euro, the new European currency, high gasoline taxes have gotten the blame.

Jack Kemp | September 13, 2000

As the presidential campaign heads into its final eight weeks, foreign policy and America's role in the world have been discussed hardly at all, and the debate over national security policy has deteriorated into an exercise in bomb counting.

William F. Buckley | September 13, 2000

Didn't you hear Candidate Gore's speech? He said six months after he was sworn in, Hollywood would have to yield or --"

Ann Coulter | September 12, 2000

It's hard to see how Democrats can use the Supreme Court as a campaign issue anymore. It would take a modern plague to make any headway in confining the justices to interpreting the Constitution rather than issuing wild policy pronouncements offensive to most Americans.

David Limbaugh | September 12, 2000

I'm sorry, but I'm growing a bit weary of all this negative talk about negative campaigning. I think it's time we started being positive about this gloriously negative American tradition.

Mona Charen | September 12, 2000

This is not the first time that George W. Bush has faced a different race from the one for which he had prepared.

Linda Chavez | September 12, 2000

A friend's e-mail got me thinking. "I guess Gore's vision is that now that his boss 'ended welfare as we know it' for the underclass, he will institute welfare as we have never known it for the rest of us," he writes.

Maggie Gallagher | September 12, 2000

Time: crack of dawn. My oldest, Patrick, who is 17 and about to be a senior in high school, grumbles about the illogic of the new school schedule. Classes start at 7:35 a.m. this year. Something to do with the demand for busses. "Little kids are always up at the crack of dawn," he complains. "Why don't they make the kindergartners go to school early?"

Jacob Sullum | September 12, 2000

Accusing George W. Bush of trying to limit the audience for this year's presidential debates, Al Gore demanded that they be inflicted on as many people as possible. Now that Bush has capitulated, he is not the only loser; TV viewers will suffer, too.

Bill Murchison | September 12, 2000

Just a tad polite, aren't you, Gov. Bush -- imputing to Al Gore only a certain tardiness in blasting the corruptions of modern 'entertainment''?

John Leo | September 12, 2000

Have we had enough coverage of George W. Bush's vulgar comment about New York Times reporter Adam Clymer? For a while there, it seemed impossible to turn on the tube without hearing a bleeped version of the candidate's one-line outburst into an open mike.

Robert Novak | September 12, 2000

Never before in my 43 years of reporting on Congress had I ever seen a U.S. senator publicly tongue-lash a Cabinet member as Sen. Robert Byrd of West Virginia did Secretary of Energy Bill Richardson on June 21.

William F. Buckley | September 12, 2000

Well, did you hear what Castro, that old joker, did when he went on stage to speak to the General Assembly at the United Nations? There is a light on the podium that begins to blink five minutes after the head of state begins talking.

Bruce Bartlett | September 11, 2000

On August 31, Bill Clinton vetoed a cut in the estate tax passed by a bipartisan majority in Congress. He called it unfair and fiscally irresponsible. Interestingly, that same day, the Socialist government of France announced plans for one of the largest tax cuts in that nation's history.
