  • Why Do Ex-Clinton Attack Dogs Davis and Stephanopoulos Get a Pass?

    Lanny Davis represents Michael Cohen, the lawyer who secretly taped his then-client, now-President Donald Trump.

    The Question That Will Decide the Election

    In the 1980 presidential debate, Ronald Reagan secured his landslide by asking the American people: “Are you better off than you were four years ago?” Today, Congressional Republicans can turn the tide in a close midterm contest by posing a similar question: “Are you better off than you were two…

    The Republican Challenge with Young Voters

    Political analysts give plenty of attention to our partisan divisions according to race or gender, but not enough to the stark differences based on age.
