A plausible plan to rescue the automakers

THE IMPENDING collapse of at least two of the Big Three U.S. automakers, General Motors and Chrysler, is not the sort of crisis that lends itself to a formulaic response. If this were a different, more prosperous time, the best option might be to let the companies file for Chapter 11 bankruptcy and... Sign in to see full entry.

Invest in Mass Transit

VOTERS SENT a clear message to Capitol Hill on Election Day: Even when times are hard, they're willing to pay for mass transit. Nationwide, voters approved over 70 percent of major transportation-funding measures, according to the Center for Transportation Excellence. That's double the rate at which...

Can Romney Save the Republican Party?

The next chairman, or any chairman, of the Republican National Committee must possess three skills: management ability, fundraising prowess, and press savvy. Given the current disarray of the party, it would seem obvious that management ability would be the most important of these three qualities.... Sign in to see full entry.

Homeland Security Priorities

BY ALL ACCOUNTS, Arizona Gov. Janet Napolitano (D) is an inspired choice for homeland security secretary. If Ms. Napolitano is confirmed, President-elect Barack Obama will get a skilled and highly regarded border-state governor and former state attorney general and U.S. attorney on the front lines...

Barack Obama's national security appointees have plenty in common.

BARACK OBAMA's announcement of his national security team immediately prompted questions about whether he had created a "team of rivals" who would spend as much time feuding as formulating policy. That strikes me as unlikely. True, Secretary of State-designate Hillary Rodham Clinton and Defense... Sign in to see full entry.

In Burma, a test of Barack Obama's attitude toward promoting democracy

BARBARITY IN Burma last week served as a reminder that, with or without President-elect Barack Obama, the global struggle for liberty will rage on long after George W. Bush takes his "freedom agenda" home to Texas. Some of Mr. Obama's foreign policy advisers are nearly as impatient to deep-six that... Sign in to see full entry.

Is Bush Hoover?

Last week, assembled at Miami’s InterContinental Hotel for a meeting of the Republican Governors Association, the governors seemed cheerful. The G.O.P. had lost only one statehouse on Election Day. The prospects for a Republican pickup in Virginia in 2009 were decent, and good candidates were... Sign in to see full entry.

The 2010 Landcape

The day after the 2008 election ended, the 2010 cycle began for political junkies. For both parties and their political operatives this is a time filled with possibility and hope. Maybe, just maybe, that governor who has held out on a Senate race for so long will finally make the leap. Maybe, just... Sign in to see full entry.
