Thousands of other Republicans running for offices around the country have not only a chance to win, but a chance to rededicate the Republican Party and reform our country in the process.

Once the source of the Republican Party’s (and the conservative movement’s) powerbase in Washington, the House is now the institution in which conservatives hold the least actual legislative power.

Moments after accusing everyone who had the temerity to actually believe her husband was lying about “that woman, Miss Lewinsky” of being part of a “vast right-wing conspiracy,” First Lady Hillary Clinton growled to her beaming staff, “That’ll teach them to [insert four letter word that is not “mess”] with us.”

I have a very important mission for all of you. Our good friend's at Freedom's Watch are running a $15 million ad buy calling on the American public to tell members of Congress to support full funding of the war in Iraq.

Denny Hastert never met a problem he couldn’t solve. He was so good at legislating that it’s possible he would have been just as successful in his career had he never been Speaker at all. That is to say, Denny didn’t need the gavel to lead, but to a greater degree than many know, Congress needed him to govern.

Judicial nominations are one of those issues that, for their overarching importance, should be of much greater interest than they are.

Last night on the House floor – that sprawling, brawling arena that was like a second home to me during my 22 year career in Congress – it seems pretty clear that a crime was perpetrated against the rule of law and the American people.

It's unlikely Sen. Clinton's coattails will be very long, seeing as she's so unpopular among Republicans and right-leaning independents, but that organization of hers is the closest thing in the 2008 race to a real chance at a national landslide.

If ever there was a window through which to view the modern liberal soul, it is the issue of climate change.

Without missing a beat, Gingrich quickly rattled off an eight-sentence, 165-word, perfectly constructed paragraph detailing six specific presidential policy initiatives, dropping in along the way references to Iraqi force capacity, economic diplomacy, a naval blockade of Iran, biometrics and Abraham Lincoln.

The thing you always need to remember when Democrat politicians talk is that they're lying.

The idea that Bill Clinton would somehow, in some region of the country, in some portion of the electorate, hurt Hillary Rodham Clinton's run for the White House is patently absurd.

There is almost never much benefit for individual members of Congress -- especially backbenchers -- to endorse early on in the nomination process.

If a minute in politics is an eternity, what does that make 18 months? Of course President Bush can recover his popularity.

The loss of a few seats on the other side of the Mississippi River during the 2006 election cycle wasn't much of a trend in itself; it was simply the Western part of an electoral thumpin'.

Just because the House ethics committee has, in recent years, been dragged into the Democrat Party's cancerous strategy of criminalizing politics is no reason to make the situation even worse with an "outside panel."

The problem with modern journalism is that there are so few real stories out there that deserve the cable news hypercoverage treatment. In between wars and terrorist attacks and election nights, reporters have very little to actually report.

The Democrats' overstepping of their electoral mandate began on election night, when they misinterpreted the election as a broad affirmation of liberalism instead of a protest against the lack of progress in Iraq.

At some point in the next few days, Don Imus may be fired from his nationally syndicated radio show and television simulcast. He will become that radio guy who got fired for saying something racist. But that won't be the real reason. Yes, his comments were deplorable, and, especially for a broadcaster of his experience, truly odd. He says it was a misfired joke, and he has apologized, several times, and seems genuinely sorry for letting such a joke cross his lips. But that's not enough – the liberals, true to form, want him publicly and professionally destroyed.
