Column: Making a good first impression

Column: Biden can't bean Clinton; she can do that herself
WASHINGTON — Maybe Joe Biden can help Hillary Clinton get her groove back. Or, get her groove at all. It’s been sorely missing this cam-paign. Clinton is at her best, or at least does best with voters, when she’s down. See the misty-eyed moment in New Hampshire 2008. Clinton...

Column: A leap of faith -- into thin air
WASHINGTON — The apparently intentional downing of a Germanwings airliner by the co-pilot has us riveted, as commercial plane crashes usually do. In each terrible instance, we put ourselves in the cabin, imagining what our last thoughts or actions would be. Would we close our eyes...
