Thomas Sowell | November 04, 2000

Media pundits seem baffled that Vice President Al Gore is not doing better in the polls, since a prosperous economy is supposed to create voter support for the administration.

Robert Novak | November 04, 2000

When Republican insiders in Washington privately complain about George W. Bush turning down free time on television, his strategists in Austin claim they must maintain control of their message, even if that means relinquishing network access to Al Gore.

Thomas Sowell | November 03, 2000

As we confront the last election of the 20th century, we seem to have learned remarkably little from the tragic mistakes that have produced catastrophes around the world during this century.

Michelle Malkin | November 03, 2000

They came. They roared. They're being ignored. The top lieutenants of the Million Mom March have been put in their proper place: far back, out of sight, on the margins of national debate and the presidential campaign.

Mona Charen | November 03, 2000

Early Tuesday morning, you will find my husband and me at our local polling place with our three sons. Each of us recalls being taken to the voting booth when we were too young to have opinions.

Oliver North | November 03, 2000

Every week, millions of Americans watch with bated breath as Regis Philbin asks his TV game-show contestants the big question: "Is that your final answer?"

Debra J. Saunders | November 03, 2000

Expect the next Bill Clinton interview to read like this: Q: What possessed you to pose for the cover of Esquire with your knees spread in front of a photographer shooting below knee level?

Emmett Tyrrell | November 03, 2000

Though Americans follow sports and politics with a keen interest to know who might win and who might lose, news coverage of the two differs markedly. A sports commentator makes a prediction intent on being accurate.

Ann Coulter | November 02, 2000

Since almost no one these days -- no politician, certainly -- admits to being an atheist, Vice President Al Gore is about as close as you're going to get.

Thomas Sowell | November 02, 2000

Long election-year campaigns can make you weary and disgusted with politics. But, at the end of it all, is an election in which the stakes are as high as the fate of this country and the future of our children.

Larry Elder | November 02, 2000

"With respect to the words general welfare, I have always regarded them as qualified by the detail of powers (enumerated in the Constitution) connected with them.

Maggie Gallagher | November 02, 2000

You can tell a lot about a man's character by how he acts when he's down. And during this last week of the campaign, Al Gore, tied in national polls but unexpectedly fighting to save traditionally Democratic states such as California, Oregon and Washington (not to mention his home state of Tennessee), is looking more and more like a desperate candidate, thrashing about for a lifesaving issue.

Robert Novak | November 02, 2000

Al Gore's strategists in Nashville, who have crafted plans to lay waste George W. Bush in the campaign's closing days, could not be more irritated by Bill Clinton's frustrated eleventh hour intrusion.

Michelle Malkin | November 01, 2000

The GOP Revolution of 1994 now seems as quaint and distant a historical event as the American Revolution of 1776. Congressional Republicans pledged "to bring to the House a new majority that will transform the way Congress works."

Walter E. Williams | November 01, 2000

The social chaos seen in other countries such as sabotage, guerilla bands and political assassinations has yet to emerge in our country. Because of that, we Americans have little appreciation and even indifference to the attack on the laws, customs and institutions that create the fabric for a free society.

Brent Bozell | November 01, 2000

When Republicans win the White House, it's never the force of their ideas. It has to be some kind of dirty trick.

David Limbaugh | November 01, 2000

President Clinton's latest antics with Congress and his most recent reflections on impeachment provide a perfect contrasting backdrop for showcasing George Bush's qualities as a leader who will restore decency, civility and accountability to the office of the presidency.

Mona Charen | November 01, 2000

While the Middle East was erupting in savagery, Madeleine Albright decided to put that vexing problem to one side and traveled 10,000 miles for the most stilted photo-op in recent memory.

Debra J. Saunders | November 01, 2000

Last week, the Rand Corp. released a report on Texas education and test scores. Rand boasted that the report "raises 'serious questions' about the validity of" academic gains touted by Texas Gov. George W. Bush -- a.k.a. "the Texas miracle."

Linda Chavez | November 01, 2000

At some point, black voters are going to rebel against racist ploys to keep them in their place -- safe in the clutches of the Democratic Party. But Al Gore and Joe Lieberman are hoping that it won't be this year -- which is why they aren't saying much about the despicable NAACP ads running against George W. Bush.

Phyllis Schlafly | November 01, 2000

Few changes in our society have done as much to liberate women from the drudgery of "women's work" as the washing machine.

Jacob Sullum | November 01, 2000

Al Gore will fight for you. And not only you. He will also fight for desperate, beleaguered, downtrodden people all over the world, oppressed by dictators, menaced by neighbors, beset by ethnic strife and civil war.

Bill Murchison | November 01, 2000

Bill Clinton -- the largely, up to now, unseen elephant in our ongoing political circus -- tells Esquire that his eight years in office have made him "a better person.''

Bruce Bartlett | November 01, 2000

In a little less than a week, either Al Gore or George W. Bush will be basking in the glow of victory. No doubt each will go off to a well-deserved vacation and either savor victory or lick his wounds.

William F. Buckley | November 01, 2000

As the campaign draws to an end, the question of character slowly makes its way to the foreground.

Jack Kemp | November 01, 2000

Just in time for Halloween, Vice President Al Gore and the "status-quo crowd" are trying to scare senior citizens (now including Jack and Joanne Kemp, by the way) into believing that Gov. George W. Bush will bankrupt Social Security, if elected.

Ann Coulter | October 31, 2000

So Paula Jones has decided to pose for nudie pictures. I, for one, am deeply, pathetically despondent over it. I really did think, when I was spending weekends and evenings working on her behalf, that I was not only trying to expose a lying, felonious creep, but also was defending the honor of a good, sweet, innocent -- if somewhat naive -- girl.

Brent Bozell | October 31, 2000

Life, it is said, can only be understood backwards, but it must be lived forwards. In that spirit, let's explore the relationship between the television industry and the family viewing audience by examining the way in which that audience was served last season -- and what its options are these days.

Maggie Gallagher | October 31, 2000

One phase of the Art Wars came to an end in a New York courtroom recently when a Brooklyn jury took just 90 minutes to convict Dennis Heiner, 73, of criminal mischief, making graffiti, and possession of graffiti instruments. His crime?

William F. Buckley | October 31, 2000

Wide attention has been given to newspaper endorsements. They are put in perspective by recalling that the great majority of newspaper publishers in 1936 counseled their readers to vote for Alfred Landon, precipitating the greatest display of mutiny in modern times.

John Leo | October 31, 2000

The future makeup of the Supreme Court hasn't caught on as a major issue in the presidential race. One reason is that the media combed through George W. Bush's judicial selections in Texas without finding much to complain about. (The media don't worry much about potential Democratic nominees -- all of them are presumed to be safe.)

Robert Novak | October 31, 2000

On his demolition tour against George W. Bush, Al Gore arrived in this bellwether state last Wednesday night to address a macabre political event: a pep rally for the state's governor, who is dead, and his widow, who was absent.

Mon, Oct 30, 2000

Ann Coulter | October 30, 2000

Demonstrating the same nauseating capacity for exaggeration he now exhibits with wild abandon, when Al Gore was in Vietnam he wrote one of his friends: "When and if I get home ... I'm going to divinity school to atone for my sins."

Debra J. Saunders | October 30, 2000

The San Francisco Board of Education voted this week to withdraw tough graduation requirements adopted in 1997 -- the class of 2000 was to have been the first class to graduate under these standards.

Robert Novak | October 30, 2000

Some Blue Dog moderate House Democrats have approached Speaker Dennis Hastert to discuss the possibility of crossing the aisle to become Republicans after the election.
