Paul Jacob | January 25, 2004

As the New Hampshire Primary looms, and her husband?s campaign continues to slip, ordinary Americans are quietly hoping she will pick up the torch and enter the fray. If a Democrat ends up being the next president of the United States, please let it be Judy Dean.

William F. Buckley | January 25, 2004

What some voters will want to dwell upon is not Kerry the acknowledged hero of Vietnam, but Kerry the analyst of the Vietnam chapter in U.S. history.

George Will | January 25, 2004

Gavin Newsom, 36, a fourth-generation San Franciscan who has just become this city's youngest mayor in a century, is, of course, a Democrat.

Kathleen Parker | January 24, 2004

In his State of the Union address, President Bush offered few surprises, other than his weird concern about steroid use among athletes, but he did demonstrate something reassuring.

Robert Novak | January 24, 2004

The most discourteous Democrat in Congress during this year's State of the Union address was veteran Rep. Maxine Waters of California.

Brent Bozell | January 23, 2004

Just weeks ago, Howard Dean looked like he was popping corn in Iowa, comfortably on his way to the Democratic nomination. In the end, he was just creamed spinach, and most unmagnanimous in defeat.

Jonah Goldberg | January 23, 2004

As luck - or bad timing - would have it, I was invited to Manhattan to address the New York State Conservative Party right before the president addressed the nation.

David Limbaugh | January 23, 2004

No sooner than the media were heaping praise on Senator John Edwards for the positive tone of his campaign, an Edwards campaign document surfaced revealing specific plans to attack other candidates. So is Edwards committed to positive campaigning, or not?

Mona Charen | January 23, 2004

Reem al-Riyashi was a normal-looking 22-year-old Palestinian woman. On Jan. 14, she strapped several pounds of explosives and nails to her body and approached an Israeli security checkpoint in the Gaza Strip.

Oliver North | January 23, 2004

Before the Iowa voters sent him back to the showers in Missouri, the statement people remember most from Dick Gephardt was his repeated and revolting accusation that President George W. Bush is a "miserable failure."

Bruce Bartlett | January 23, 2004

One of the more remarkable results of last Monday's Iowa caucuses was the utter collapse of Congressman Dick Gephardt, who won the caucuses in 1988. The political clout of organized labor also took a hit. There may be larger political implications from this result.

Chuck Colson | January 23, 2004

Good news: Adult stem cell research has produced amazing medical breakthroughs. Embryonic stem cell research has produced none. But the media ignores the good news.

Charles Krauthammer | January 23, 2004

I am bereft. I yield to no one -- not a single orange-cap-wearing, twentysomething vegan Deaniac -- in my disappointment over Howard Dean's Iowa debacle.

Thu, Jan 22, 2004

Ann Coulter | January 22, 2004

The endless receding nightmare of the Iowa caucuses has finally produced something interesting: The Democrats have one hellacious catfight on their hands.

Thomas Sowell | January 22, 2004

What do you do when you don't have as much of something as you need? One of the things you can do is stretch it out to make it last as long as it can.

Larry Elder | January 22, 2004

Did Saddam Hussein and his interest in weapons of mass destruction pose a threat to the United States? Just ask the Democrats.

Suzanne Fields | January 22, 2004

When I heard the other day that two students at Calvin Coolidge High in Washington, my alma mater, had been threatened with a trip to the principal's office if they didn't behave themselves, I was perplexed. What was left to offend?

Emmett Tyrrell | January 22, 2004

Well, look around you my Democratic friends. Look at the Internet, talk radio, the Fox Network, the intellectual reviews. You are losing cultural dominance, too.

Larry Kudlow | January 22, 2004

The Iowa Democrats did the entire party a favor by nominating Sens. Kerry and Edwards -- rather than the nutty Howard Dean -- in their caucus votes Monday. But the results need a reality check.

Marvin Olasky | January 22, 2004

In "Braveheart," when evil men slit the throat of William Wallace's wife, it's clearly time to fight. In "The Lord of the Rings," when orcs attack Gondor and Rohan, it's clearly time to fight.

Rich Lowry | January 22, 2004

Kerry has long said that he is a great fighter. If he completes his miraculous comeback to win the Democratic nomination, he will indeed have the fight of his life on his hands -- against his own legislative record.

Alan Reynolds | January 22, 2004

I never understood what Alan Greenspan meant by "irrational exuberance" until I saw Howard Dean's reaction to getting 18 percent of the Iowa vote.

Robert Novak | January 22, 2004

How did John Kerry and John Edwards escape political oblivion to finish one-two in Iowa's caucuses as contenders for the Democratic presidential nomination?

John McCaslin | January 22, 2004

In a most unfashionable poll, Time asked the campaign staffs of top Democratic presidential contenders where they shop for clothes. The answers: Howard Dean (Gap), John Kerry (American Eagle), Wesley Clark (J. Crew), John Edwards (Banana Republic), Joe Lieberman (Urban Outfitters) and Dennis Kucinich (Salvation Army).

Ross Mackenzie | January 22, 2004

The week has provided sharp contrasts in the points of view offered by the nation's two principal parties. On Monday, the Democratic caucuses in Iowa; on Tuesday, the president's State of the Union address.

Wed, Jan 21, 2004

Thomas Sowell | January 21, 2004

The headline story out of the Iowa caucuses is Senator John Kerry's surprising victory and the collapse of Governor Howard Dean's political bubble. This is all very well for those in the media who treat politics as the personal stories of politicians.

Michelle Malkin | January 21, 2004

Gwyneth Paltrow, the fashionable blond actress who once chopped off her hair to look exactly like ex-boyfriend Brad Pitt and who showed up at the Oscars a few years ago in a transparent Goth-meets-Heidi costume, has some nerve calling anybody ?weird.?

Walter E. Williams | January 21, 2004

What needs to be done to improve black education? Whether it's civil rights organizations, politicians or the education establishment, you'll get answers that cover the gamut from more money for teachers and smaller class sizes to school desegregation and racial preferences in higher education.

Brent Bozell | January 21, 2004

Don't look now, but a barrel of common sense seems to have rolled through the front door of the Federal Communications Commission. The FCC is finally upset over the issue of filthy cursing on broadcast television.

Jonah Goldberg | January 21, 2004

Howard Dean has jumped the shark! Now, I could be wrong - indeed, all the pundits have been so far.

Tony Blankley | January 21, 2004

Not having a clue about what the future holds is one of the least appreciated conditions of life. If we knew, probably most of us would be in a constant state of despair.

Cal Thomas | January 21, 2004

After months of pounding by the Democratic presidential candidates and many in the media, President Bush struck back Tuesday night.

Pat Buchanan | January 21, 2004

In 2002, Fox News anchor Neil Cavuto, the managing editor for business at the network, contributed $1,000 to a fund-raising dinner for President Bush.

Terry Jeffrey | January 21, 2004

In his best-selling book, "A National Party No More -- The Conscience of a Conservative Democrat," Miller dedicates a chapter(entitled "Abortion and a God Above") to describing his conversion from a pro-choice Democrat who supported Roe v. Wade, to a pro-life Democrat who doesn't.

Ben Shapiro | January 21, 2004

Dean's a lily-white guy from a lily-white state. If he can't win in lily-white Iowa (2.1 percent black), how can Dean expect to win in the far more crucial Southern primaries?

Linda Chavez | January 21, 2004

Howard Dean wasn't the only loser in Monday night's Iowa caucuses. Big Labor gambled big -- and lost even bigger.

Rebecca Hagelin | January 21, 2004

To meet Star Parker is to come face-to-face with hope. Her radiant smile and graceful manner make you feel as if you've known her all your life.

Bill Murchison | January 21, 2004

Brashness wears thin, as Ross Perot twice discovered in the '90s. And Perot had a certain goofy charm about him -- a larger claim than supporters of the Mad Doctor of Vermont would make for their man.

Ed Feulner | January 21, 2004

Americans shell out more than $2 trillion each year to keep our federal government running. The least we should expect in return is honesty.

Kathleen Parker | January 21, 2004

The latest advance in "knowing," creepily called "preimplantation genetic diagnosis," allows prospective parents not only to know, but to select the sex of their barely conceived offspring.

Joel Mowbray | January 21, 2004

Although President Bush devoted much time to foreign policy in his State of the Union address, there is one issue he did not tackle in detail that could yet cause him political harm before November: Islamists? increasing power inside Iraq.

Chuck Colson | January 21, 2004

In his State of the Union Address last night, President Bush said, "America...is a nation called to great responsibilities. And we are rising to meet them..."

Armstrong Williams | January 21, 2004

In the midst of a civil upheaval that threatened to erode the very structure that keeps us huddled together as a society, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. spoke of love and the need to overcome oppression without resorting to oppression.

Mike Adams | January 20, 2004

Back in the 1960s, there was a revolution on our nation?s college campuses. Liberal students were organizing protests outside buildings, and even sit-ins inside the offices of deans and college presidents.

David Limbaugh | January 20, 2004

Isn't it ironic that as the Republican primaries were gearing up four years ago, Democrats and the media began their refrain that George W. Bush was not presidential material because he lacked "gravitas"?

Cal Thomas | January 20, 2004

Reacting to President George Bush's recess appointment of Charles W. Pickering Sr. to a federal appeals court seat, Sen. Jon Corzine (D-N.J.) called it a "travesty" that dishonors the civil rights movement.

Dennis Prager | January 20, 2004

The differences between Democratic and Republican positions on almost all subjects of major importance are growing so great that it is fair to say that we are experiencing a second American civil war.

Debra J. Saunders | January 20, 2004

Judy Dean, Dr. Judith Steinberg, Mrs. Howard Brush Dean III -- whatever you call her -- you can also call her the smartest woman in politics. Steinberg, a practicing internist, knows enough to want out.

Diana West | January 20, 2004

When Jacques Chirac announced his intention to unveil Islamic schoolgirls in France by barring the hijab, or headscarf, from state-run schools, he raised some provocative questions.

Matt Towery | January 20, 2004

Since I am in the unenviable position of writing this column before the results of the Iowa caucuses are in and before the president's State of the Union address, I've decided to turn my focus to the South, where political pundits will soon be turning their attention.

John McCaslin | January 20, 2004

When Vice President Dick Cheney was growing up in Lincoln, Neb., his father toiled for the Department of Agriculture's Soil Conservation Service.

George Will | January 20, 2004

Iowa's political market, called caucuses, where barriers to entry were negligible and information was abundant, worked well.

Bruce Bartlett | January 20, 2004

Having failed miserably in its effort to shore-up U.S. manufacturing with trade protection, it now appears that the Bush administration is preparing to use direct government subsidies instead. Like the ill-fated steel tariffs, this effort, too, is doomed to failure.

Suzanne Fields | January 19, 2004

We must wish Al Franken well. Heaven knows the left needs all the help it can get in its search for a place on the radio dial, but Al is going unarmed into a battle of wits and humor against Rush Limbaugh.

Debra J. Saunders | January 19, 2004

I want a Democratic nominee who orders Grey Poupon with his Philly cheese steak sandwich.

Phyllis Schlafly | January 19, 2004

When President George W. Bush unveiled his temporary foreign workers plan on Jan. 7, he got cheers from his carefully selected invitees in the East Room of the White House.

Robert Novak | January 19, 2004

If Iowa were kicking off the Democratic presidential selection with a regular primary election instead of Monday night's caucuses, the fabulous campaign of Howard Dean would suffer a possibly mortal wound.

Rich Lowry | January 19, 2004

He charged that the Iraq War was driven by domestic political considerations, as White House operative Karl Rove and other administration officials dragged the country to war to improve the president's political standing.

John Leo | January 19, 2004

Are you excited about going to the moon and Mars? Neither am I.

Jack Kemp | January 19, 2004

I just returned from a remarkable conference in Cairo, Egypt, put on jointly by the Egyptian Center for Economic Studies and Instituto Libertad y Democracia.

Paul Jacob | January 18, 2004

Lord Acton said, "Power tends to corrupt and absolute power corrupts absolutely.

Larry Kudlow | January 18, 2004

For months, the inflation hawks have been decrying the upward price of gold and the weakening dollar -- both historic signals that prices are headed up.

George Will | January 18, 2004

The plan is for the good ship California to float to safety over jagged economic reefs -- mostly reefs of its own making -- on a tide of testosterone.
