    Mikulski honored as longest-serving woman in Congress
    Call her Maryland's Iron Lady. U.S. Sen. Barbara A. Mikulski was lauded Wednesday on the floor of the Senate for setting the record as the longest-serving woman in Congress, a streak that her colleague, Sen. Ben Cardin, likened to that of another...
  • Intellectual dishonesty and politicking led to debt downgrade

    When Sen. John Kerry called Standard & Poor's downgrade of the U.S. credit rating "The tea party downgrade," he illustrated perfectly the intellectual dishonesty and absurd politicking that has given Congress its stellar 14 percent approval rating. If...
  • Iraq withdrawal: An end to the nonsense talk of 'American empire'

    Iraq withdrawal: An end to the nonsense talk of 'American empire'
    And so it ends. The United States is leaving Iraq. I'm solidly in the camp that sees this as a strategic blunder. Iraqi democracy is fragile and Iran's desire to undermine it is strong. Also, announcing our withdrawal is a weird way to respond to a...
  • Political impact of 9/11 fades

    At a town hall meeting in Catonsville last week, Sen. Benjamin L. Cardin spent a half-hour answering questions, including whether Congress would cut Medicare, address immigration or impeach President Barack Obama. Despite the breadth of the discussion,...
  • Walking to deliver a message to Obama

    Imagine de Tocqueville with a Twitter account. Or maybe Jack Kerouac without a car. B.J. Hill started walking across the country in March 2008, carrying a then-empty journal and asking people he met if they wanted to write a message to the president they...
  • We need better fiscal management, not higher taxes

    This past week Sen. John Kerry explained that tax increases are necessary due the current federal government's revenue shortfall (less citizen income, less income tax revenues). This all-too-common view assumes the moral right of government to a...
  • Volunteers help Obama carry Virginia

    At first Marc Broklawski's problem was an easy one. Whenever another volunteer trickled in -- the lawyer from Washington, the small business owner from Annapolis -- he just plugged them into the network of poll workers and door knockers he'd already...
  • Analysis: Young, minorities join to form new U.S. majority

    America turned a page yesterday. Barack Obama broke through the racial barrier to the Oval Office, becoming the first African-American to gain the presidency. And his electoral landslide delivered a powerful message about a new generation of American...
  • In Carney, diverse neighbors eager to vote

    Not that I have a thing for CNN's John King, but I long to feel his touch. Not directly, mind you, but I do get jealous when he glides his fingertips over that magic board, and it's never my precinct or even state that zooms up large and significant in...
  • Obama selects Emanuel as top aide

    President-elect Barack Obama pivoted quickly to begin filling out his new administration yesterday, selecting hard-charging Illinois Rep. Rahm Emanuel as White House chief of staff, while aides stepped up the pace of transition work that had been...
  • Obama's challenge changes

    Obama's challenge changes
    In running a successful national campaign, Barack Obama laid down guidelines that came to be seen as hallmarks of his leadership style. He prizes loyalty, discretion, teamwork and selflessness, say those who have worked with him. But as he shapes a new...
  • Martin O'Malley forged his leadership style through trial, error of political office

    Martin O'Malley forged his leadership style through trial, error of political office
    Occasionally on the campaign trail, Baltimore Mayor Martin O'Malley gets the rare chance to talk about something other than politics - such as in a restaurant during a recent Sunday swing through the Eastern Shore. "How's the band doing?" asked Jesse...
