Last weekend, Hillary Clinton spoke in India. There, she continued to struggle publicly with the most humiliating experience of her life, not her husband’s continual sexual misconduct or her State Department’s mishandling of Benghazi but her loss of the presidency to a reality television sho…
She can't let go. She can't stop talking about what happened. She wrote an entire book about it. Now she's telling people in other countries about why she should have won. In India last weekend, she told an audience that she won in all the smart, cool places and then hit a pandering low that puts a catalogue of others to shame.
A father who made his 10-year-old son run to school in the rain after the boy was barred from the bus because of bullying made a video of the boy’s trek and posted it on Facebook. Now he has become a pariah or a folk hero, depending on which comments you read.
You may have missed the starting shot, but the midterm races officially began last week with the Texas primaries. This coming Tuesday, voters in Pennsylvania's 18th Congressional District head to the polls for a special election to fill the seat left vacant by Republican Tim Murphy.
For a while there, it seemed like you couldn't get away from headlines wailing about "baby geniuses," the "Tao of babies, or that special "baby wisdom."
What a glorious thing, watching West Virginia teachers, most of them women, shut down the state’s public schools for nearly two weeks to force their elected officials to give them the 5 percent raise they surely deserve.
As a nation, we’ve spent better than two weeks wrestling with the latest mass shooting and how to stop the most violent episodes of the killing of innocent children and citizens. While I certainly don’t have all the answers, I do have a suggestion: Begin.
The Washington Post recently published an op-ed by writer Adam Weinstein in which he argues that Second Amendment advocates “use jargon to bully gun-control supporters.” “While debating the merits of various gun control proposals,” he contends, “Second Amendment enthusiasts often diminish, o…
Here is a question at the crossroads of psychology and political philosophy: How can a leader so enamored by authoritarianism be so allergic to order?
No Capitol institution has undergone more change in recent years than the state Senate that will soon decide the fate of Republican Gov. Scott Walker’s re-election priorities.
“Achtung Baby: An American Mom on the German Art of Raising Self-Reliant Children,” by Sara Zaske, represents the latest in a series of books about other countries getting right what American parents get wrong.
A University of Pennsylvania Law School professor recently made bold to write an essay for the Philadelphia Inquirer. Her name is Amy Wax, and I have no idea what her politics might be.
“Darkest Hour” follows Winston Churchill’s struggle to rouse Britain to confront the Nazi menace. Winning the war was step two. Step one, the movie’s theme, was to get the country to agree to wage war.
CNN recently hosted an anti-gun town hall featuring a number of grieving children and parents from Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, who aimed their ire at the National Rifle Association, politicians peripherally associated with the NRA and anyone who didn’t say exactly what…
Widespread displeasure with Donald Trump and his party bodes well for Democrats in November. They have a good chance of retaking the House and a decent one of winning a Senate majority. But to get there, they must be smart. And being smart includes attracting Republicans repelled by Trump.
It was a reasonable question: Did a U.S. Supreme Court order that told Pennsylvania legislators to immediately redraw the districts of U.S. House members signal how the court would rule in the challenge to Wisconsin Assembly districts?
