Pulling out troops in Afghanistan

I wrote today's column about the U.S. withdrawal from the Korengal Valley in eastern Afghanistan, the site of some of the deadliest conflict that American forces have seen in the war. Too late for deadline, I get an e-mail...

Sarah Palin is liked -- as long as she stays away from the White House

NYT Poll: Relatively good news for GOP. Bad news for Dems

Now that we know that self-identified Tea Party members in the New York Times poll "tend to be Republican," there are interesting implications for the GOP. The overall data have interesting implications for the Democrats, too. They're not good...

Should Obama nominate a politician for the Supreme Court?

Rangel conspiracy theories: one impossible, another almost certain

As conspiracy theories go, New York State Assemblymember Adam Clayton Powell IV's assertion that Rep. Charlie Rangel (D-N.Y.) is conspiring to choose his replacement for the seat he's held since 1971 is pretty rich. According to Powell, this diabolical...
