  • Here's how to fix our broken system

    The 2012 election cycle was ugly and dirty, a cut below women's mud wrestling. It brought out the worst in all of us: We watched it after all. Supposedly, when Benjamin Franklin emerged from Independence Hall at the end of the Constitutional Convention in...
  • GOP doesn't need bigger tent but needs to dump bad apples

    Since last week's election, Republicans have been talking at a fever pitch about their big tent, and the obvious need to make that tent bigger in light of the defeat of Mitt Romney and so many others in the GOP. The dialogue is a dramatic departure from...
  • Here's the sleaze, but where's the crime?

    After hearing the latest daily take from the John Edwards trial, now under way in Greensboro, N.C., you almost want to take a shower. It's better (or worse) than any daytime soap. It makes tabloids look tame. In essence, what sounds like a weighty case...

  • Obama Dodging Key Foreign Policy Questions

    It's embarrassing when President Barack Obama's risk-averse refusal to engage foreign policy issues becomes so obvious that it's a laugh line for the president of Iran. "I do believe that some conversations and key issues must be talked about again...
  • Labor's love lost

    WASHINGTON -- Any way you slice it, the refusal of Wisconsin voters to recall Republican Gov. Scott Walker for limiting the collective-bargaining rights of unionized public-sector employees was a blow not only to organized labor but to the Democratic...
  • Supreme doubt

    WASHINGTON -- It should come as no surprise that in the latest New York Times/CBS News Poll, less than half of Americans surveyed -- 44 percent -- said they approve of the U.S. Supreme Court. Furthermore, three-quarters said they believed individual...
  • Robert B. Reich: The billionaires' long game

    I keep hearing that the billionaires and big corporations that poured all that money into the 2012 election learned their lesson. They lost their shirts and won't do it again. So we don't need campaign finance reform. Baloney. It's true their...
  • Romney arrives at condensed GOP convention

    Romney arrives at condensed GOP convention
    Mitt Romney arrived Tuesday at the condensed Republican National Convention in Tampa as organizers kept a nervous eye on Hurricane Isaac churning toward Louisiana's coast. The storm caused a one-day delay in the convention agenda, but Republican...
  • Election is over, but 'super PACs' remain a threat

    Election is over, but 'super PACs' remain a threat
    Just as the devil's finest trick is persuading you that he doesn't exist (according to the poet Baudelaire), the best trick of big-money political donors may be persuading Americans that Citizens United doesn't matter. Citizens United, of course, is the...
