  • Can a handshake ever be more than just a handshake?

    It was one of the most awe-inspiring events of our lifetime: Ninety world leaders joining 100,000 South Africans in Johannesburg's World Cup Stadium for a four-hour-long celebration of the life of Nelson Mandela. But what did the U.S. media focus on? Not...
  • Get serious: Shut the whole thing down!

    As luck would have it, I had two interesting experiences last week: visiting my granddaughter's kindergarten class; and watching Republicans in the House of Representatives deal with their constitutional responsibility to pass a budget. The two events...
  • Republicans in denial over the debt ceiling

    There are as many different opinions as there are men and women on the planet. Still, it's hard to believe what some people believe. There are those who still believe that we never landed a man on the moon, that George Bush personally ordered planes to...
  • Welcome to the land of second chances

    One thing for sure about American politics: We are quick to condemn. Just ask Bill Clinton, David Vitter, Mark Sanford and Anthony Weiner. But we are also quick to forgive. Just ask Bill Clinton, David Vitter, Mark Sanford and Anthony Weiner. Politically...
  • Stand your ground -- as long as you're white

    Most of us were not surprised by the verdict in the George Zimmerman trial. But millions of us were nonetheless disappointed and ashamed for the world to see that in this great country, in the 21st century, it's still possible for a white man to shoot and...

  • Bradley Manning no hero; no traitor, either

    The news from a Fort Meade courtroom was mixed, at best. Those expecting Pfc. Bradley Manning to be set free were disappointed. But so were those waiting for him to be marched straight to death row. In her Solomonesque decision, the military judge,...
  • All the news that's no longer in print

    How you greeted the news that the Graham family had sold the legendary Washington Post probably depended on the first thing you do every morning, after you brush your teeth. If you turn on your computer and click to the day's news, you didn't even think...
  • It's open warfare over the Fed

    In Washington, D.C., politics never takes a day off. But even in this city of nonstop campaigning, nobody's ever seen anything like this: a full-scale political campaign over who should replace Ben Bernanke as the next chairman of the Federal Reserve....
  • No easy answer on Syria

    To bomb, or not to bomb Syria? That is the question of the day. And there's no easy answer. Let's start with the givens. We know the deployment of chemical weapons is not just a "red line" drawn by President Obama. Their use has been universally...
  • Obama's 'rookie' mistake on Syria

    It was one of the biggest surprises pulled off by any president. The entire nation tuned in on Saturday afternoon, August 31, to hear President Obama detail his plans to bomb Syria in retaliation for Bashar al-Assad's use of chemical weapons. Instead,...
  • Dealing with Putin: 'Trust, but verify'

    In his masterful portrayal of John F. Kennedy, Ted Sorensen, special counsel to the president, revealed JFK's occasional frustration with the job of president. One evening, while changing clothes to get ready for a televised address to the nation on the...
