Bridging The Gap
Hillary Clinton's woman problem: Column Hillary Clinton's woman problem: Column
Bernie Sanders has captured the hearts of millennial voters with his inspirational and emotional promise to bring the nation “a future to believe in.” Although 74-year-old Sanders is a lifelong politician, his off-the-beaten-path campaign and perpetually disheveled aesthetic seem to be just the fresh (if wrinkled) face many young Democrats are looking for. That's even true of the women and part...

Are F-35s fit for combat? Pentagon doesn't know Are F-35s fit for combat? Pentagon doesn't know
Washington The military risks committing itself to buying billions of dollars of F-35 fighter jets before they have demonstrated they are fit for combat, a new Pentagon report warns. The development of the Joint Strike Fighter F-35, a fifth-generation stealth jet, has been beset by spiraling costs and schedule delays. The program's price tag is nearly $400 billion for 2,457 planes -- almost twi...

Donald Trump bid badly wounded in Iowa Donald Trump bid badly wounded in Iowa
Donald Trump must be very disappointed to discover that three quarters of Iowa Republicans are weak, low energy and have no interest in making America great again. The rest of the country, meanwhile, has been reminded that the Iowa caucus is a cruel thing to navigate. Many a high-profile, nationally popular campaign has been destroyed on those rocks. Trump's ship isn't sunk, but it'll be taking on...

Bernie’s Revolution vs. Hillary’s Getting Things Done Bernie’s Revolution vs. Hillary’s Getting Things Done
Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders are locked in an intense, occasionally nasty, policy battle — a fight finally being put to its first voter test today in Iowa. One advocates a single-payer health care system (Mr. Sanders), the other is attacking his plan to make it a reality (Mrs. Clinton). One refuses to raise taxes on the middle class (Mrs. Clinton), the other is O.K. with doing so in order to...

Shine light on dark campaign money: Our view Shine light on dark campaign money: Our view
If there’s anything worse than millionaires, corporations and unions trying to buy elections, it’s millionaires, corporations and unions trying to buy elections in secret. Secret money, enabled by court rulings and misguided decisions by the dysfunctional Federal Election Commission, has become a driving force in American politics. Groups that do not reveal donors are gearing up to spend signif...

Plenty of blame to go around in Flint water crisis Plenty of blame to go around in Flint water crisis
President Obama declared a federal state of emergency in Flint, Mich., on Jan. 16 over the city’s drinking water crisis. Comments from Facebook are edited for clarity and grammar: There’s a lot of blame to be shared by everyone, but it starts with the city and state water officials. However, this went on too long, and the Environmental Protection Agency got involved. Now, the regional EPA ad...

In Case of Blizzard, Do Nothing In Case of Blizzard, Do Nothing
In the winter of 1985 my hometown, Buffalo, was engulfed in a blizzard — not an uncommon occurrence for the region, which is justly famed for epic snows. But this was a big one, and the city’s blustery Irish-American mayor, Jimmy Griffin, was at pains to persuade people to stop trying to go about their business as conditions deteriorated. He urged Buffalonians to “relax, stay inside and grab a six...

Deregulating Corporate America Deregulating Corporate America
If you think Congress is hopelessly divided on party lines on every issue, think again. When it comes to regulating — more precisely, deregulating — corporate America, Republicans and Democrats are all too eager to find common ground. This week a bipartisan group of senators — four Republicans, three Democrats and one independent — is expected to introduce legislation that would slow and compli...

The Gospel According to Trump The Gospel According to Trump
IT is no secret that Donald J. Trump’s ruinous rise in the Republican presidential primaries has been powered, in large part, by a naked agenda of religious division and fear-mongering — an agenda that will likely inform his speech today at Liberty University, a conservative Christian college in Lynchburg, Va. But while his anti-Muslim provocations have rightly drawn the largest share of public...

States Should Raise the Gas Tax States Should Raise the Gas Tax
The tumbling price of crude oil is helping many Americans save money. It also presents a good opportunity for state governments to raise their gasoline taxes to help pay for road repairs and other needed transportation investments. Ideally, Congress should raise the national gasoline tax, which has remained at 18.4 cents per gallon since 1993. But federal lawmakers are so fearful of raising tax...
