Bridging The Gap
Obama didn't want a 'what now' moment if he won. Trump didn't plan and now we have chaos. Obama didn't want a 'what now' moment if he won. Trump didn't plan and now we have chaos.
In April 2008, then-Sen. Barack Obama tasked me to start planning for a possible presidential transition. Even for a politician who had called one of his books “The Audacity of Hope,” this was pretty audacious. At the time, Obama was waging a hard-fought primary contest against Hillary Clinton. If he prevailed, there would be five months of general election campaigning. In discussing the need f...

The World Grows More Dangerous by the Day The World Grows More Dangerous by the Day
My experience at the United Nations Security Council over the last five years has led me to see a harsh truth: The world is growing more dangerous and less predictable by the day.

Robert Mueller speaks, but this shouldn't be his last word on Donald Trump Robert Mueller speaks, but this shouldn't be his last word on Donald Trump
In his first and last public appearance Wednesday as special counsel, Robert Mueller did a service to his country.

He said he was resigning and closing up shop. And he made plain his desire to let the report speak for itself. But Mueller re...

The organisers of the Milan furniture fair have issued a manifesto about being more responsible and sustainable. It’s time participants played along. April means more than showers to those in the design game but there will of course be a fair few finely honed faucets at Salone del Mobile, which kicks off in Milan next Tuesday. It’s the jamboree to end all (furniture-themed, northern Italian) ...

Is a luxury US retail chain opening two new shops in Manhattan a bit of a, well, luxury? Nordstrom doesn’t think so. Is a luxury US retail chain opening two new shops in Manhattan a bit of a, well, luxury? Nordstrom doesn’t think so.
As many retailers retreat to online selling, Nordstrom is betting big on bricks and mortar. One of the last remaining retail dynasties, the multibrand monolith opens its first New York shop tomorrow. The secret to its success? Confidence, perhaps. “We are going to have a lot of unique things that you won’t be able to find in other Nordstrom stores or, frankly, any other store in the city,” say...

Opinion: Jim Mattis' exit leaves Donald Trump surrounded by yes-men. Opinion: Jim Mattis' exit leaves Donald Trump surrounded by yes-men.

Civil is nice, but winning elections is better. Civil is nice, but winning elections is better.
Everybody wants to go to heaven, the wise man observed, but nobody wants to die. It’s not a puzzlement. Everybody wants kind and gentle in our politics, but nobody wants to risk losing an election. That’s not such a puzzlement, either. The passing of George Herbert Walker Bush, a genuinely decent, kind and polite man, has caught the country up in a frenzy of good feelings, and some kind, gentle...
