Column: Harry Reid's bountiful bile
WASHINGTON -- NASA scientists may have noticed a wobble in Earth's axis Tuesday morning. Harry Reid, the irascible top Democrat in the Senate, had shown contrition. The day before, Reid had attacked the integrity of Republicans, including the majority whip, John Cornyn, suggesting...

Hillary Clinton’s concrete shoes
ST. PAUL -- I saw Hillary Clinton once working a rope line for more than an hour, a Secret Service man holding her firmly by the hips as she leaned over the rope and reached into the mass of arms and hands reaching out to her. She had learned the art of encountering the crowd and...

Column: The Trumpification of Mike Pence
WASHINGTON -- Why does Mike Pence keep getting himself into such deplorable situations? Donald Trump's vice-presidential nominee went on CNN on Monday evening, trying to make hay from Hillary Clinton's calling half of Trump's backers racists and other "deplorables." But the appearance...

Column: Hillary's deplorable basket case
WASHINGTON -- She didn't want to say she was sick. Hillary Clinton, that is, who recently has suffered coughing fits followed Sunday by a near collapse during New York's 9/11 memorial ceremony. She left the ceremony early, claiming over-heatedness, and appeared to weave, lose her...

Column: On immigration, Clinton has been a tumbler
SAN DIEGO -- Having written about immigration for a quarter-century, I’ve heard more than my share of lies, contradictions and inconsistencies from elected officials in both parties. So it’s been extremely refreshing these last few weeks to see my colleagues in the media get...

Column: Donald Trump's war with the U.S. military
WASHINGTON -- Donald Trump, who had five draft deferments, never had to fight in the jungles of Vietnam. But he had a different sort of war record, as he told radio host Howard Stern years ago: He slept with many women without getting STDs. "It is my personal Vietnam," he said....

Column: The glass ceiling isn't shattered yet
WASHINGTON -- There are many better reasons to oppose Donald Trump than his rampant sexism. But the brazenness of Trump's recent comments, and the not-so-subtle piling on by the Republican National Committee, demand some attention. The remarks are worth noting not only because of...

Column: Incident in Hangzhou
WASHINGTON -- The president of the United States lands with all the majesty of Air Force One, waiting to exit the front door and stride down the rolling staircase to the red-carpeted tarmac. Except that there is no rolling staircase. He is forced to exit — as one China expert put...

Column: The Capitol restoration left Congress just as useless
WASHINGTON -- The smell of fresh paint greeted lawmakers reacquainting themselves with their workplace after their seven-week break. The scaffolding was coming down, revealing a gleaming dome and, underneath it, restored friezes, oil paintings and statues. The Capitol has been returned...

Column: Cashing in on presidential prestige
WASHINGTON -- The president, as he prepared to leave office, was dead broke. So broke, in fact, that he had to take out a loan to get him through the transition. Bill Clinton in 2001? No, Harry Truman in 1953 -- and the resemblance ends there. Back then, although Truman had only...

Column: Trump wants you to trust him -- blindly
WASHINGTON -- Donald Trump just renewed his vow of opacity. Asked by ABC News's David Muir on Monday afternoon whether he'd be releasing his income-tax returns, as every other major-party presidential nominee has done for 40-plus years, Trump brushed off the inquiry. "I think...
