    Is the GOP handing the election to Obama?
    The last time a Republican candidate for president defeated an incumbent Democrat running for reelection, the primary returns were a lopsided affair. Ronald Reagan won convincingly in New Hampshire and South Carolina (after George H.W. Bush took Iowa) and...

    Is the GOP already feeling buyer's remorse?
    It's not unusual in politics for a party to nominate in haste and repent in leisure. In 2008, many Republicans feared before the election that they had chosen a loser in John McCain, and in 2004 many Democrats felt the same about John Kerry. It's known as...

    "My rival in this race," Barack Obama announced early in 2007, "is not other candidates. It's cynicism." It's now clear that what he meant by this was other people's cynicism -- not his own. As you may recall, President Obama came into office a very...
  • What's in a name

    A reporter inquires about the way we refer to U.S. Sen. Benjamin L. Cardin, because his staff says that he prefers to be known as plain old Ben Cardin. (He's running for re-election.) Can we do that? Sure. We're easy. We accommodated Jimmy Carter and...
