    ...Which brings us back to our question: Why would so smart a candidate play political Russian roulette with virtually all the bullet chambers loaded? Sometimes only a shrink can decipher why some politicians persist in flagrantly taking giant risks, all but daring others to catch them in the act (see: Spitzer, Eliot). Carl Bernstein, a sometimes admiring Hillary Clinton biographer, has called the Bosnia debacle “a watershed event” for her campaign because it revives her long history of balancing good works with “ ‘misstatements’ and elisions,” from the health-care task force fiasco onward. But this event may be a watershed...
  • GOP leaders shift onus to detractors in domestic spying

    WASHINGTON - Far from ducking the controversy about a secret domestic spying program authorized by President Bush, top White House political strategist Karl Rove signaled Friday that Republicans plan a full-throated run on the issue in fall congressional elections. "Let me be as clear as I can: President Bush believes if al-Qaida is calling somebody in America, it is in our national security interest to know who they're calling and why," the White House deputy chief of staff told the Republican National Committee winter meeting. "Some important Democrats clearly disagree." Shift in strategy Rove's speech, along with similar remarks by...
  • Hypocrisy Causing Democrat Election Losses (Reagan)

    If the Democrats want to know why they keep losing, all they have to do is run a replay of Martin Luther King Day. If they do, and if they are not brain dead, they'll immediately notice the difference between Republican President George W. Bush's MLK Day speech at Georgetown University and the rantings of the opposition party. In one speech, the president took pains to say how proud he was to be in the presence of the president of the NAACP even though that organization has never supported him, has frequently said disparaging things about him, and even ran...

    The official website of Washington State Democrats sold magnetic car stickers of the Christian fish symbol and cross emblazoned with the word "hypocrite" on a background of hellish flames. The item was removed about mid-day yesterday after a weblog took note, calling it an example of Democrat Party hostility toward religious believers, especially Christians.
  • Kerry lawyer seeks Ohio ballots

    US Democrat John Kerry is asking county elections officials to allow his witnesses to inspect the 92,000 ballots cast in Ohio in which no vote for president was recorded, a Kerry lawyer said. The request is one of 11 the Kerry campaign made in a letter sent over the weekend to Ohio's 88 county boards of election, which will begin recounting presidential ballots this week. "We're trying to increase the transparency of the election process," Donald McTigue, the lawyer handling the recount for the Kerry campaign, said last night. But he said that several requests - such as using independent...

    A couple of days after the election, my husband and I were walking down the street when I saw a sign that made my jaw drop: "REPUBLICAN PARKING." "My God, they work fast," I thought. "They've already taken over the parking lots!" Then I did a double take. The sign actually read: "PUBLIC PARKING." Oh. As Emily Littella used to say, "Never mind." But I do think my subconscious got it right: It's a Republican country now. The rest of us just sulk in it. Or, at least, that's what most progressives are doing. But me, I have yet to...

    WASHINGTON — House Democrats have canceled plans to spend nearly $1 million in television advertising on two House races in New Hampshire, a move they said was forced by an unusual demand that the entire ad buy be paid for up front. The top official at WMUR-TV said there is nothing unusual about the demand; cash in advance is the standard policy when it comes to political advertising, said station General Manager Jeff Bartlett. Losing campaigns can’t raise money to pay bills, he said. “If you want to book five weeks, you pay five weeks,” Bartlett said. “We don’t put...

    WASHINGTON - The war on terrorism is a dominant issue in the campaign for the White House and has been one of President Bush's strongest issues. By acting quickly on a proposed intelligence overhaul, he signaled a determination to protect that advantage.Bush urged Congress on Monday to create the post of national intelligence director, a recommendation in last month's Sept. 11 commission's report.The report has gained political potency heading toward the November elections, and Bush and John Kerry have been maneuvering to gain advantage.Bush has a huge edge. While Kerry's platform is that of the Democratic presidential nominee, Bush has...

    In South Dakota, Democratic Senator Tim Johnson won re-election in the face of everything the White House could throw at him. The President recruited his opponent, helped raise him all the money in the world, and visited and revisited to galvanize Republican voters in a state that Bush carried easily in the 2000 presidential race. But Johnson won. He survived in part because he ran a remarkably populist campaign on corporate scandals and kitchen table issues like protecting Social Security and standing up for small farmers. People who listened to the debates -- and in South Dakota people do listen...
