Soap Opera Digest: The Caroline Kennedy Issue

Well, I guess our long national soap opera is over. Could this have been botched any more -- by both sides? New York Gov. David Paterson conducted the search for Hillary Clinton’s replacement in a way that made Rod...

Andrew Cuomo's Problem

Two things to consider for all those who are breathlessly speculating that New York State Attorney General Andrew Cuomo will most assuredly get the Senate nod from Gov. David Paterson: 1.) Guess who picks the new state AG if...

Caroline Crumbles

Not since Gov. Mario Cuomo chartered two planes to ferry him to New Hampshire to launch a presumed presidential bid -- but left the aircraft idling and unused on a runway at the Albany airport -- has New York...

Copy-editing the Constitution?

I certainly hope that the off-the-cuff revision Chief Justice John Roberts performed on the presidential oath of office today was not a sign of conservative judicial activism to come. And I doubt that Roberts simply dislikes the Founders' prose...

From Mr. Cool, a Brisk Shower

President Barack Obama, who made his political reputation as an elegant orator, couldn’t possibly have lived up to the rhetorical expectation millions of Americans had for his historic inaugural address. So he didn’t try. But that doesn’t mean he...

Yes, We Really Can

By Eva Rodriguez I cried, too, just like 18-year-old Darianne Allen, who teared up when she stepped onto the Mall after a 16-hour bus ride from Selma, Ala. "It's really real," she said. For me, the moment came when Malia...

So Long...

Boarding Executive One for his final aerial spin around the city he dominated for eight tumultuous years, George W. Bush, the 43rd president of the United States, looked as relieved to leave Washington as those gathered on the Mall...

Cheney's New Persona

During his tenure as vice president, Dick Cheney has found himself compared to movie villains time and again. He is Darth Vader, the embodiment of evil in the Star Wars movies. Or he is Dr. Evil, the more comic...

We May Be One, but Certain Feelings Endure

Shortly after we arrived at the Capitol, we got a lesson not only in national unity, but in how certain feelings from the campaign just won’t go away. Here in Section 16, there was an enormous roar when Bruce...

'We Are One' Metro Ride

When my family and I climbed aboard the Metro at the Falls Church station in Virginia and headed toward the inauguration, we did not realize we were entering a party, an affinity group and a bit of a political...

I'm at the Lincoln Memorial -- the best spot in Washington this morning. Sunny and uncrowded and no security. We have a clear view of a jumbotron. As I was trying to pick a seat on the steps that...
