Ken Connor | February 03, 2008

With his recent encouragement to Congress to ban human cloning, President Bush is sure to come under the fire of the scientific research community and a media that wants nothing to stand in the way of the progress of science towards "future cures."

Sat, Feb 02, 2008

Kevin McCullough | February 02, 2008

Much has been made of Mitt Romney's positions on a short list of issues previous to entering the 2008 Presidential race, the same has been said of Mike Huckabee.

Roy Innis | February 02, 2008

These unlicensed physicians are prescribing aspirin to counteract the poisons they routinely inject into our economy, while they prepare even bigger doses of arsenic.

Dick Morris and Eileen McGann | February 02, 2008

Make no mistake about it: If Hillary Clinton is elected president, her husband will be her rogue co-president, causing constant chaos, crises and conflicts for her new administration.

Doug Giles | February 02, 2008

Did any of you catch Ted Kennedy’s vociferous, flabby, sweat-laden, cheerleaderesque endorsement of Barack Obama last Monday?

Michael Barone | February 02, 2008

Now it appears that John McCain is on an unobstructed flight path to the nomination, facing a few crosswinds but no serious navigation hazards, while the two leading Democrats, Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton, are on the collision course.

Debra J. Saunders | February 02, 2008

The "he said/she said" debate was a historic first face-off between the first viable African-American and the first viable female candidate for president. But forget the history for a moment.

John Andrews | February 02, 2008

Precinct caucuses are coming up on Tuesday in seven states across the country, including mine. I'm telling fellow Coloradans that if you’re registered with a party, be there.

Robert Novak | February 02, 2008

While President George W. Bush has maintained neutrality among contenders for the Republican presidential nomination, he privately expresses to friends his exasperation with Mitt Romney's hard-line stance on immigration.

Robert Knight | February 02, 2008

The Big Game is a family affair, with literally hundreds of millions of people of all ages watching around the world. Which is why ED’s surprise appearances can be so… embarrassing.

Amy Menefee | February 02, 2008

What’s messier and more shameless than candidates campaigning to save the economy? Media coverage of that economy – the one all the candidates want to “stimulate.” The media coverage that’s driving people’s votes.

Brent Bozell | February 02, 2008

Few people in the public eye can escape hate mail. Public scrutiny is one thing, but the sophomoric and so often crude letters designed to ruin the recipient's day are increasingly the gambit of idiots.

Fri, Feb 01, 2008

Kathryn Lopez | February 01, 2008

It's long past time we got a political grip. Americans, Republicans especially, need a little perspective. In the days before Super Tuesday, as the race for the GOP nomination became John McCain's to lose, McCain continued his dishonest and dishonorable attacks against Mitt Romney.

Richard H. Collins | February 01, 2008

Instead of the heavy-weight fight the media was hoping for, Thursday’s Democratic debate in California turned into a love fest; one with lots of pandering to the liberal Hollywood audience.

Bill Steigerwald | February 01, 2008

Economist and syndicated columnist Thomas Sowell says he has lost track of how many books he’s written on economics, history, social policy, ethnicity and the history of ideas.

Michael Gerson | February 01, 2008

By my count, at least five former high-level Bush administration officials are deeply disillusioned with the current policy on North Korea.

Amanda Carpenter | February 01, 2008

Pollster Scott Rasmussen thinks the fight between Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama for the Democratic nomination will extend past “Super Tuesday” February 5.

Lee Culpepper | February 01, 2008

In the rare case of McCain’s hero image lasting longer than four hours, readers should seek immediate medical attention.

Amanda Carpenter | February 01, 2008

Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney painted his chief GOP rival John McCain as a “Washington insider” in a conference call Friday morning.

Rich Tucker | February 01, 2008

It’s a shame that the Kennedy family has already tossed its collective weight behind Barack Obama in the Democratic race for the presidency. After all, we haven’t heard from all the Democratic candidates yet.

John McCaslin | February 01, 2008

No wonder Sen. Edward M. Kennedy of Massachusetts endorses Barack Obama. The National Journal's study says Obama's voting record makes him the "most liberal" member of the U.S. Senate.

Rich Galen | February 01, 2008

I am now persuaded that Sen. John McCain will be the Republican nominee. I am neither rooting for nor against him, but that is the way it appears to me.

Lorie Byrd | February 01, 2008

I’ve given quite a bit of thought to that question this week because I happen to be one of those freaking out over the prospect of a McCain nomination.

Thomas Sowell | February 01, 2008

We have been hearing for years that Senator John McCain gives "straight talk" and his bus has been endlessly referred to as the "straight talk express." But endless repetition does not make something true.

John Hawkins | February 01, 2008

Admittedly the title is a wee bit of an exaggeration. Let me tell you, I understand where people are coming from with McCain, I really do.

Mike Adams | February 01, 2008

The University of North Carolina - Wishful Thinking (UNCW) has announced the establishment of a new journal called The Journal of Genetic Rationalization. Professors in the Department of Genetic and Social Engineering will be responsible for editing the quarterly journal.

Jonah Goldberg | February 01, 2008

The gods have made their choice. The Olympians have found their anointed one. Bow, bow, before the vessel of the Divine Spark!

David Limbaugh | February 01, 2008

It's true that McCain is unpopular with Reagan conservatives because he decidedly is not, on far too many issues, a Reagan conservative. But it's more than that. He is the anti-conservative.

Mona Charen | February 01, 2008

Usually the guy who's ahead finds it within himself to be gracious to his competitors whereas the desperate runner-up goes negative and reaches for any stick.

Oliver North | February 01, 2008

Moscow is not quite the Emerald City, but Vladimir Putin certainly is acting like the wizard, and he seems intent on trying to recreate the Iron Curtain.

Pat Buchanan | February 01, 2008

As of today, it appears the Republican Party will be led into the future by a Beltway favorite of the media and Washington insider who has spent the last quarter of a century on Capitol Hill.

Linda Chavez | February 01, 2008

I believe John McCain comes closest to the Reagan standard. There is no question that McCain has vision. He sees the danger the United States faces and doesn't flinch.

Diana West | February 01, 2008

President Bush, in this week's State of the Union address, held up as an example to the world how "Republicans and Democrats can compete for votes and cooperate for results at the same time."

Paul Greenberg | February 01, 2008

We're at that lull in the presidential primary season when pundits try to make the most of the least election returns. Iowa and New Hampshire are in, plus Barack Obama's landslide in South Carolina and now Florida's votes.

Mike Gallagher | February 01, 2008

Some of my colleagues have turned on each other with a vengeance. One host accused another one of acting like a liberal (which, in our business, is a low blow).

Kathleen Parker | February 01, 2008

When you're trying to fashion yourself as an agent of change, it isn't helpful when the sisters of politics past abandon their golf club picket lines in girly protest of mean men who support male candidates.

Charles Krauthammer | February 01, 2008

There was general amazement when (the now-muzzled) Bill Clinton did his red-faced, attack-dog, race-baiting performance in South Carolina. Friends, Democrats and longtime media sycophants were shocked.

Burt Prelutsky | February 01, 2008

I have a confession to make. On many occasions, I have been one of those people who have ridiculed people for no other reason than that they’ve been lawyers.

Hugh Hewitt | February 01, 2008

In the two days since Florida and in the one day from the debate at the Reagan Library, conservatives across the country are sounding the alarm that John McCain's nomination means the end of the Reagan agenda.

Thu, Jan 31, 2008

Bill Bunkley | January 31, 2008

Florida delivered as promised as national front runners were singled out in the state’s primary contest.

Michael Reagan | January 31, 2008

Until last night, when I watched the Republican debate, I had no idea how much John McCain dislikes me and just about everybody else but Rudy Giuliani, who if you believe The New York Times is a pretty good hater himself.

Ann Coulter | January 31, 2008

The Democrats are trying to give away an election they should win in a walk by nominating someone with real problems -- like, for example, a first-term senator with a 100 percent rating from Americans for Democratic Action and whose middle name is "Hussein."

Rich Lowry | January 31, 2008

The famously superstitious John McCain carries a lucky nickel. It apparently has been working its magic. Since McCain impaled his campaign in the summer on the issue of "comprehensive" immigration reform, everything has broken his way.

Cliff May | January 31, 2008

It’s become a ritual: The economy grows sluggish and politicians rush to “do something” about it. What they do almost never has a beneficial economic impact, as any reputable economist will tell you.

John McCaslin | January 31, 2008

Suffice it to say, the Smithsonian Institution is not buying into the "global warming" hysteria being spread by Al Gore.

Paul Weyrich | January 31, 2008

I have been critical of the fiscal irresponsibility displayed by Congress and President George W. Bush over the past several years. Neither has shown the restraint necessary to rein in the Federal Government's deficit spending.

Victor Davis Hanson | January 31, 2008

After Barack Obama's unexpected surge in Iowa, Bill and Hillary Clinton resorted to chewing him up through their trademark politics of personal destruction.

Larry Elder | January 31, 2008

"Stupid Black Men: How to Play the Race Card -- and Lose," my new book, comes out Feb. 5, Super Tuesday. Unfortunately for former President Bill Clinton and his wife, no one sent an advance copy.

Ken Blackwell | January 31, 2008

Now the race is down to John McCain and Mitt Romney, and Mike Huckabee. The conservative coalition is looking for one of them to take up the mantle of Ronald Reagan in truth, not just in name.

Cal Thomas | January 31, 2008

The endorsement of Barack Obama’s presidential campaign by three Kennedys from different generations was a political trifecta for the young upstart from Illinois.

Suzanne Fields | January 31, 2008

Politics makes strange bedfellows. Everyone knows that. This campaign makes for strange bed-hopping. (How post-modern.)

Ben Shapiro | January 31, 2008

Unless Romney brings out his rustic -- and personable -- side now, McCain will be the only Republican left standing, period.

Debra J. Saunders | January 31, 2008

Florida was big. Florida Republicans not only went for John McCain over Mitt Romney, but also, when you add the McCain vote (36 percent) to the now-withdrawn Rudy Giuliani vote (15 percent), you see a shift.

Matt Towery | January 31, 2008

Since well back into 2007, this column has been predicting that Florida would decide both the Democratic and GOP nominations. I believe it did, and in the process has blown apart the political world we have known for decades.

Donald Lambro | January 31, 2008

With all the economic gloom and doom we're hearing on the nightly news, it should be noted that not everyone believes we are heading into a recession.

Maggie Gallagher | January 31, 2008

He strode to the stage with all his loose, geeky charisma intact, looking like a cross between a rock star and an accountant. Not many men can pull off the look but, then, is there anyone else on the American stage quite like Rudy?

Steve Chapman | January 31, 2008

Listening to presidents reporting on the State of the Union, you would conclude that they came from Lake Wobegon, since every one of them, by his account, is well above average.

Emmett Tyrrell | January 31, 2008

In the acrid aftermath of the South Carolina primary, I think it is safe to say that novelist Toni Morrison was dealing in fiction when she pronounced Bill Clinton our first black president.

Robert Novak | January 31, 2008

As John McCain neared his momentous primary election victory in Florida after a ferocious campaign questioning his conservative credentials, right-wingers buzzed.

Joel Mowbray | January 31, 2008

Given that hard evidence is often scarce in trials of unsuccessful terrorists, federal prosecutors in Miami no doubt felt fortunate to be trying defendants who participated in a ceremony pledging allegiance to al Qaeda.

William Rusher | January 31, 2008

Like it or not, liberals are going to have to take Ronald Reagan on, head-first, and try to convince the American people, or at least the historians of his era, that he was a fundamentally bad guy.

Ross Mackenzie | January 31, 2008

Democrats tend to favor renewable fuels (solar, wind) and biofuels such as ethanol, but the prospects for such fuels adding much to the energy mix are limited.

William F. Buckley | January 31, 2008

President Bush didn't give Congress, in his State of the Union address, quite what was expected, especially in the area of taxation.

Marvin Olasky | January 31, 2008

HIV statistics in Africa show that many have chosen wrongly. The well-documented failure of many government and big philanthropic projects shows that many would-be helpers have chosen wrongly.

Wed, Jan 30, 2008

Dick Morris and Eileen McGann | January 30, 2008

Being the front-runner in the Republican primary is no small matter. The GOP believes in following the leader.

Michael Gerson | January 30, 2008

When President Bush took his final walk to the rostrum of the House chamber, his speech and manner conveyed little nostalgia.

Floyd and Mary Beth Brown | January 30, 2008

Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice is the hero of many a young girl in America. But do you know who Condoleezza Rice’s heroes are?

Paul Weyrich | January 30, 2008

With all the recent talk of recession, the housing crisis and the downturn in the stock market, many families and individuals are concerned that they may suffer significant financial hardships in the year ahead.

John Stossel | January 30, 2008

Should we worry that the people of China, India and other undeveloped countries are getting richer? Apparently so, according to the newspapers and the "experts" they quote.

John McCaslin | January 30, 2008

Forget Iowa and New Hampshire, ignore South Carolina and Florida yesterday, and pay no mind to Super Tuesday. In fact, why not skip the increasingly pointless Democratic and Republican national conventions?

Rich Galen | January 30, 2008

As I was driving home from doing a stint on Wolf Blitzer's CNN program yesterday afternoon, I got a call from an AP reporter Libby Quaid who asked me what I thought was going to happen in Florida.

Dick Morris and Eileen McGann | January 30, 2008

Some may agree with Sen. John McCain’s (R-Ariz.) positions on his myriad of causes and enthusiasms. Others may embrace Mitt Romney’s record as governor and his experience in business. But one fact remains pre-eminent — McCain has a much better chance of winning the election than does former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney (R).

Thomas Sowell | January 30, 2008

Both political parties seem determined that the federal government should create a "stimulus package" of things designed to cushion a downturn in the economy.

Michelle Malkin | January 30, 2008

Who says bipartisanship is dead? From President Bush to Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama and John Edwards, to Mitt Romney and John McCain, virtually everyone in Washington agrees: The government must Do Something.

Walter E. Williams | January 30, 2008

Some Democratic and Republican presidential hopefuls are preaching economic doom and gloom, disappearing middle class, and failing health care industry. What's their solution?

Brent Bozell | January 30, 2008

Brokaw doesn't want Republicans to have any troublesome litmus tests to decide which candidate is most conservative, not only because moderates like McCain will fail the test but because it leads Republicans to pitch campaign promises at that conservative base that the media would like to believe is irrelevant.

Jonah Goldberg | January 30, 2008

As Bush opened the final chapter of his presidency Monday night, the similarities between his tenure and his predecessor's seem to have finally eclipsed the differences.

Mike Adams | January 30, 2008

Fred Phelps, the pastor and head lunatic of Westboro Baptist Church has written an open letter to the family of Heath Ledger.

Tony Blankley | January 30, 2008

The metaphor that is being more bandied about is that this is "The Last Hurrah" for the Clintons. What the Clintons are betting on is that the correct correlation is to Walter Mondale's 1984 nomination fight with Gary Hart.

Terry Jeffrey | January 30, 2008

While the liberal establishment may be conflicted over whether it wants Hillary Clinton or Barack Obama as the Democratic presidential nominee, there's no doubt which Republican it favors.

Austin Bay | January 30, 2008

Late last month, allegations of vote fraud in Kenya's closely fought presidential election sparked riots and demonstrations throughout the country.

Paul Greenberg | January 30, 2008

A curious reader of our editorial page here at the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette wants to know if we publish every Paul Krugman column we get from the New York Times Syndicate or just the gloomy ones.

Jacob Sullum | January 30, 2008

In his 2007 State of the Union speech, right at the moment when the Democrats took over Congress, President Bush came out of the closet as a fiscal conservative.

Kathleen Parker | January 30, 2008

Smart Democratic candidates embrace both Kennedy and Reagan. That would be Barack Obama, who dared suggest the truism that Reagan got elected because he had the right message for the right time.

Michael Medved | January 30, 2008

During the last century, the American people have shown a notable reluctance to elect sitting U.S. Senators to the nation’s highest office.

Tue, Jan 29, 2008

Andrew Tallman | January 29, 2008

Several developments over the last three months seem to indicate that our society is at a moment of decision regarding capital punishment. It behooves us, therefore, to think seriously about this issue.

Paul Weyrich | January 29, 2008

Both my media and political friends have suggested that in all likelihood Hillary Clinton will be the nominee and she will be unable to invite Senator Obama to be her Vice Presidential running mate.

Janice Shaw Crouse | January 29, 2008

Bush's greatest challenge during the State of the Union address was to be heard above the cultural cacophony in America — fears about an economic recession, the still-simmering anger over the Iraqi war, and uncertainty in both parties.

Sen. Jim DeMint | January 29, 2008

I am delivering a Conservative Response not to oppose the President, but to compliment what the President has proposed. The President last night took some bold positions and we will work to support his principled stands. But more must be done.

John McCaslin | January 29, 2008

Nothing is free anymore — even the bumper sticker declaring your support for a particular presidential candidate, who, we add, receives in return not only your hard-earned cash, but free publicity wherever your vehicle travels.

Thomas Sowell | January 29, 2008

Whatever one may think about Barack Obama as a candidate or as a potential President, his candidacy has brought something new to the American political scene.

Chuck Norris | January 29, 2008

Just as fluctuating and fickle is this presidential election. With political surges, primary bypasses, midstream startups and blended politics, there are still no clear front-runners in either party.

David Limbaugh | January 29, 2008

It's a good thing for Hillary Clinton that she and her political-bodyguard husband aren't Republicans. She'd be out on her ear for race-baiting alone.

Cal Thomas | January 29, 2008

The aptly named Republican "retreat" last weekend at the ritzy Greenbrier resort in West Virginia should have included Democrats because Republicans are behaving just like them.

Dennis Prager | January 29, 2008

For four years, a list of alleged Republican positions has been circulating on the Internet and forwarded in countless e-mails. If people want to vote for a Democratic president, they should not do so based on falsehoods about Republicans.

Pat Buchanan | January 29, 2008

Barack Obama routed Hillary Clinton two to one in the heaviest turnout in a Democratic primary in the history of South Carolina. Such a defeat would normally be a crushing and perhaps fatal blow to a rival's campaign.

Debra J. Saunders | January 29, 2008

I have to wonder if Giuliani's biggest mistake was not touting himself as the only supporter of abortion rights in the Republican primary.

Bill Murchison | January 29, 2008

Our long, long, long presidential campaign is producing clarifications. Extended exposure to the candidates and their campaigns shows us things not generally in view before.

Ed Feulner | January 29, 2008

If the truth hurts, you can do two things: Get angry at the messenger, or fix the situation so the truth won’t hurt anymore.

Carrie Schwab Pomerantz | January 29, 2008

At a party over the holidays, a woman I've known forever asked me about long-term care insurance. She and her husband were starting to think about retirement and its more unpleasant partner: old age.

George Will | January 29, 2008

Although Edwards got just 18 percent of the vote in the Democrats' South Carolina primary, he received the support of half the white voters who made up their minds in the week before the voting.

Mon, Jan 28, 2008

Randy Mastro | January 28, 2008

A number of issues are weighing on the minds of voters. The economy, national security, and the rising cost of health care are only a few of them. America needs an accomplished and trusted leader to take on these problems.

Rich Lowry | January 28, 2008

If he weren't constantly belittling Barack Obama in racially charged terms, Bill Clinton might regard him with a self-referential nostalgia: "That," he might think to himself, "is what I used to be."

Dr. Matthew Ladner | January 28, 2008

America needs to invest more financial resources to help address a looming shortage of college graduates needed for the high-tech economy of tomorrow. Or do we?

Amy Ridenour | January 28, 2008

Can trial lawyer advertising put your health at risk? You wouldn't think so, but a new report by the Center for Medicine in the Public Interest explains how it can happen.

Amanda Carpenter | January 28, 2008

Here’s a round up of presidential campaign polls conducted and released within the last week.

Amanda Carpenter | January 28, 2008

White House aides are promising that President Bush will announce “unprecedented” action against earmarks in his last State of the Union address this evening, but there are grumblings that it’s nothing more than a lame duck promise.

William Phelps | January 28, 2008

Jerry Bowyer was correct that Fair Tax is a "crowd". It is a big "crowd"-- thousands of supporters all across the country; a grass roots movement to pass the bipartisan Fair Tax Act.

Phyllis Schlafly | January 28, 2008

M. Stanton Evans, journalism professor and board member of the American Conservative Union, has enacted a transformation for the most reviled American in modern U.S. history, Sen. Joseph McCarthy.

Frank Gaffney | January 28, 2008

On January 18th, America lost a gifted corporate leader, generous philanthropist and great patriot, Terrence Elkes. I was one of many who also lost a beloved friend.

Rich Galen | January 28, 2008

Barack Obama's overwhelming victory in South Carolina over a stunningly tone-deaf Hillary Clinton may change the political landscape in America for decades to come. Or, it may not have any effect on Super Tuesday (February 5) at all.

John McCaslin | January 28, 2008

We have it on good authority that George W. Bush tonight will not acknowledge a national "recession" in his last State of the Union address, which begins at 9 p.m. in the U.S. Capitol.

Kathryn Lopez | January 28, 2008

There is nothing like the prospect of losing to focus one's mind. That might explain the dynamic at work in the East Room of the White House on the anniversary of the Supreme Court decision that legalized abortion in the United States.

Dick Morris and Eileen McGann | January 28, 2008

Barack Obama used his victory in South Carolina to change the dialogue with the Clintons in the presidential race. He has taken Hillary’s and Bill’s attempt to use the race issue and replied with a clever move. He has basically called their bluff.

Dinesh D'Souza | January 28, 2008

Two leftist organizations have released a study that claims that the Bush administration lied about Iraq. Somehow I think we've heard that one before.

Douglas MacKinnon | January 28, 2008

During last week’s GOP debate in Boca Raton, Florida, Williams exercised all the subtlety of David Duke when he dropped this bigoted statement on the former Governor from Massachusetts:

Suzanne Fields | January 28, 2008

Our candidates for president are showing us how they think they can profit by imitating animals, especially the brainy ones. Like the elephants, for example.

Paul Greenberg | January 28, 2008

Instead of the new hope of his party, and maybe of the country, he may be pigeonholed as the Black Candidate, his appeal effectively limited to just one segment of the electorate.

Donald Lambro | January 28, 2008

Talk about a flip-flop. A month or two ago Mitt Romney and John McCain were trailing Rudy Giuliani and Mike Huckabee in the polls and all but declared politically dead.

Robert Novak | January 28, 2008

Sen. Hillary Clinton is relying on the big Latino vote as her firewall to prevent losing the California Democratic primary Feb. 5, the most important of 22 states contested on Mega Tuesday.

Burt Prelutsky | January 28, 2008

Some years ago, I was a movie reviewer. I started out at UCLA, reviewing for the Daily Bruin, and then moved on to be the first critic for Los Angeles magazine. All told, I stuck it out for about a dozen years.

Star Parker | January 28, 2008

Touted as the only "real conservative," a careful look shows that this label was pretty dubious. His ideas were devoid of the vision and leadership that fueled Republican ascendancy a quarter-century ago and badly needed today.

Salena Zito | January 28, 2008

Often key to the outcome of presidential elections, the Interstate 4 corridor here once again could shape a primary election Tuesday for Republicans.

Carol Platt Liebau | January 28, 2008

Last week, Bill Clinton took pains to point out that a Hillary Clinton-John McCain match-up would be “the most civilized election in American history” because the candidates “like and respect each other” so much.

Harry R. Jackson, Jr. | January 28, 2008

Last week I was privileged to join a discussion about the changing face of faith in America will affect the presidential campaign.

Doug Wilson | January 28, 2008

Ultimately, true economic freedom stands in stark contrast to the populist instinct to encourage government meddling in the economy.

Wynton Hall | January 28, 2008

Some unsatisfied Republican voters, especially conservative ones, have threatened to sit out the Republican primary in protest.

Mike Adams | January 28, 2008

According to the Massachusetts ACLU, universities must be vigilant in protecting their students from harassment but, in this case, no such harassment occurred.

Jerry Agar | January 28, 2008

Our tongue-in-cheek wager based on the political fortunes of “your” nanny-stater, John Edwards, against “my” nanny-stater, Barack Obama was justifiably tweaked by some readers who want us to take on the leftward slide on the Republican side.

W. Thomas Smith, Jr | January 28, 2008

No wonder Hezbollah was able to fight tooth-to-eyeball the way it did against the Israeli Army back in the summer of 2006.

Sun, Jan 27, 2008

Jeffrey Anderson | January 27, 2008

Even with their candidate out of the race, Fred Thompson’s supporters can make a big impact in Florida. They should do so by supporting Rudy Giuliani.

Jackie Gingrich Cushman | January 27, 2008

When I was small, my family took many camping trips and spent many hours canoeing. Before our trips, we planned where the canoe would go into the river and where we would pull out.

Steve Chapman | January 27, 2008

Washington, D.C. is a place where delusions go to thrive. That explains why Congress and the president are now agreed on remedies that will not work, expending money they do not have, to fix a problem that may not exist.

George Will | January 27, 2008

Come November, voters will decide more than half a million federal, state and local officeholders and ballot initiatives. Ninety-nine percent of these will matter less than five civil rights initiatives.

Austin Hill | January 27, 2008

Dear Mr. Obama; You’re right. Your assertion from the past week is absolutely correct. You ARE running against “both Clintons.”

Robert Bluey | January 27, 2008

The U.S. treasury secretary did such a poor job representing the White House in negotiations on the economic stimulus deal, it wasn’t clear if Paulson was purposely trying to help House Speaker Nancy Pelosi or simply unaccustomed to how business is done in Washington.

Salena Zito | January 27, 2008

If anything, this is the year of “nomentum” – the absence of a single candidate steamrolling to the respective parties' summer nominating conventions.

Kevin McCullough | January 27, 2008

In the border fence debate in 2007, McCain showed more contempt for his fellow Americans, his fellow Senators, and the voters he was even then campaigning in front of than can be recalled in recent years.

Paul Jacob | January 27, 2008

Guess who's coming to imbalance society by over-growing government. Come on. Guess.

Ken Connor | January 27, 2008

This past Tuesday marked the 35th anniversary of Roe v. Wade. Since that fateful decision, over 48.5 million children have perished at the hands of abortionists.
