The Two-Man Race. Only Rudy and Mitt have credible scenarios.by Fred Barnes Ron Paul has been a striking presence in the Republican presidential debates. One result is he's raised an unimaginable amount of money--$5.1 million in the third quarter--for an obscure congressman from Texas. Another is he's jumped to fourth place (7.4 percent) in a New Hampshire primary poll. Yet practically no one takes him seriously as a possible Republican presidential nominee. The reason is Paul has no credible... Sign in to see full entry.

Norman Podhoretz believes that America needs to go to war soon with Iran. As far as he knows, Rudy Giuliani thinks the same thing. “I was asked to come in and give him a briefing on the war, World War IV,” said Mr. Podhoretz, a founding father of neoconservatism and leading foreign policy adviser to Mr. Giuliani. “As far as I can tell there is very little difference in how he sees the war and how I see it.” During a long interview this week in his bookcase-lined East 81st Street home, Mr....

By Charlie Cook, NationalJournal.com© National Journal Group Inc.Tuesday, Oct. 23, 2007 One should expect each of the major political parties to step into a pile of political manure from time to time. While many voters might disagree with the Bush administration on foreign policy issues, it doesn't mean Democrats get a free pass. Of course, that's what keeps things in Washington interesting; it wouldn't be fun if the right call were always made and executed perfectly. House Republicans,... Sign in to see full entry.

October 22, 2007 We're Not in 2006 Anymore By Michael Barone Things are not working out as Democratic congressional leaders expected. For the first eight months of this year, they struggled to find some way to shut down the American military effort in Iraq. They took it for granted that we were stuck in a quagmire in Iraq, with continuous high casualties and very little to show for them. They pressed hard to get the Republican votes they needed to block a filibuster in the Senate and were... Sign in to see full entry.

Handicapping the GOP's presidential horse race By Jonathan Last for the Inquirer As I sat watching the last Republican debate, the following occurred to me: Hillary Rodham Clinton could carry 40 states. When you do the math, that's probably an overreaction. Not by much, though. For a number of reasons (the war, the housing market, the unpopularity of President Bush, the Senate seats up for grabs), the best-case scenario for the Democrats is a broad-realignment election in which the nominee...

October 19, 2007 Pelosi's Armenian Gambit By Charles Krauthammer There are three relevant questions concerning the Armenian genocide. (a) Did it happen? (b) Should the U.S. House of Representatives be expressing itself on this now? (c) Was House Speaker Nancy Pelosi's determination to bring this to a vote, knowing that it risked provoking Turkey into withdrawing crucial assistance to American soldiers in Iraq, a conscious (columnist Thomas Sowell) or unconscious (blogger Mickey Kaus) attempt to...

Polls Aside, Bush Is 'On Offense,' White House Says By Mort Kondracke October 18, 2007 President Bush's approval ratings are still in the low 30s, but White House aides insist that he's now on policy offense across the board. From Iraq to SCHIP to the budget, energy policy, trade, terrorist surveillance, the mortgage crisis and even prescription drug costs and student test scores, top Bush aides say that events are turning in his direction -- and that they are trying to get the word out more...

A host of horrors might yet haunt front-runners October 16, 2007 To hear some in the political community talk, Hillary Clinton has the Democratic nomination for president all locked up, and Rudy Giuliani has a commanding lead on the Republican side. Uh, people who want to place big bets on those two right now should ask President Howard Dean for some counseling. To be sure, Clinton and Giuliani lead in national polls. Both would like to have people believe they're the inevitable nominees in... Sign in to see full entry.

October 16, 2007 Sabotage in Wartime By Thomas Sowell With all the problems facing this country, both in Iraq and at home, why is Congress spending time trying to pass a resolution condemning the massacre of Armenians in the Ottoman Empire nearly a century ago? Make no mistake about it, that massacre of hundreds of thousands -- perhaps a million or more -- Armenians was one of the worst atrocities in all of history. As with the later Holocaust against the Jews, it was not considered sufficient... Sign in to see full entry.

October 15, 2007 Is the Tax Issue Back? By Michael Barone British politics sometimes moves in tandem with American politics. Ronald Reagan's administration was informed by the success of Margaret Thatcher's governance and vice versa. Tony Blair's New Labor drew inspiration from Bill Clinton's successful run as a "new Democrat." This month has seen a sharp turn in British politics. It raises the question of whether something similar could happen here in the next 13 months. The sharp turn was... Sign in to see full entry.
