    Rand Paul is determined to keep 2016 interesting [Commentary]
    I know it's disturbingly early to get into this, but here is my out-of-nowhere prediction for the 2016 presidential race: Hillary Clinton vs. Rand Paul. Ms. Clinton is an easy pick. She was on "The Daily Show" with Jon Stewart on Tuesday night looking...

    A fairer (small) business environment  [Commentary]
    Is there a way to actually unite economic populists on the liberal left and libertarian right? Maybe not. But one promising possibility is the prioritization of American small businesses over powerful, multinational corporate dominance. The events of...
  • Let's not let the ravings of mass killers dictate our laws

    Let's not let the ravings of mass killers dictate our laws
    Can we please stop holding the country hostage to crazy people? Every year a tiny number of mentally ill people go on horrific killing sprees. It just happened in California. I won't name the person because I think the media attention lavished on...
  • Watching reruns in the Capitol [Editorial]

    Watching reruns in the Capitol  [Editorial]
    The nation's debt ceiling is back in the news this week and for all the old, familiar reasons. By month's end, it will need to be raised or the U.S. Treasury will run out of money to pay the country's outstanding bills, and House Republicans are once...
  • Uninformed politicians are dangerous [Commentary]

    Uninformed politicians are dangerous [Commentary]
    Former U.S. Senator Ted Stevens once famously stated that the Internet is a "series of tubes," an observation that would have been more comical if his committee hadn't been responsible for regulating the Internet. Rep. Michele Bachmann suggested that...
  • GOP can't help overreaching on Obama scandals

    GOP can't help overreaching on Obama scandals
    Well, that didn't take long. Just as several genuine scandals cast the Obama administration in an unfavorable light, Republicans in Congress are already overreaching — with hyperbolic comparisons to Watergate, calls for special prosecutors,...
  • Female vs. male senators

    Female vs. male senators
    As the son of a woman, the husband of a woman and the father of daughters and granddaughters, I celebrate the record number of females who are now United States senators. However, I do see some differences in the way these and other women are treated,...
  • As DGA run ends, O'Malley likely to stay on national stage

    As DGA run ends, O'Malley likely to stay on national stage
    President Barack Obama no longer needs Gov. Martin O'Malley as a top campaign surrogate, and the Democratic Governors Association is set to elect someone else as its chairman on Monday when the group meets in Los Angeles. But neither development is...
  • Bush deserves the criticism he's getting

    Bush deserves the criticism he's getting
    When I read Stanley J. Glinka's recent letter defending the presidency of George W. Bush I wanted to laugh, but it was 6 a.m. and I did not want to wake up my still sleeping wife ("Stop blaming Bush," May 1). Now I know how people like Michele...
  • GOP's biggest problem is itself

    GOP's biggest problem is itself
    "How ya like me now?" -- Barack Obama OK, so President Obama didn't really say that, but surely he must have thought it behind a private smile at some point Tuesday night. There are no smiles among the Republicans, however, only a pressing question:...
  • Obama critics show little interest in facts

    I really had to mull my response to letter writer Ilene O'Connell ("Ashamed of the country that re-elected Obama," Nov. 8). Initially, I was incredulous and dismissive. I realize that won't help here. First, she could have looked up that he was a U.S....
  • The frump factor and Holly Petraeus

    The frump factor and Holly Petraeus
    Last week was a historic one for women. Eighteen women won or reclaimed Senate seats, bringing the number of women in that body to 20. Nearly 80 women now occupy the House. New Hampshire became the first state to elect a female governor and an all-women...
