Column: Don't blame the media for Trump
WASHINGTON — For nine months, Republican leaders refused to take on Donald Trump when it would have done some good. Now that it may be too late, they’re blaming their own failures on the media. “The media’s pumping him up,” Marco Rubio complained. The Republican presidential...

Column: Trump's flirtation with fascism
WASHINGTON — So it has come to this: The front-runner for the Republican presidential nomination, at a campaign rally Saturday in Orlando, leading supporters in what looked very much like a fascist salute. “Can I have a pledge? A swearing?” Trump asked, raising his right hand...

Column: A running mate for Clinton
WASHINGTON — Hillary Clinton has a knack for turning triumph into tedium. On the night of Super Tuesday, after her wins all but guaranteed her the Democratic presidential nomination, she served up a victory speech that was a bowl of mush. “We know we’ve got work to do, but that...

Column: Too satisfied to feel the Bern
WASHINGTON — Why did Bernie Sanders fail? Sanders continues his campaign after his Super Tuesday losses, but he has no real chance of wresting the Democratic presidential nomination from Hillary Clinton. The socialist insurgent went further than most thought possible, drawing huge...

Column: Democrats answer to GOP court farce
WASHINGTON — Senate Republicans say they will refuse to have a hearing for President Obama’s nominee to fill the Supreme Court vacancy. So Democrats last Wednesday took matters into their own hands: They held a hearing all by themselves. A dozen members of the Senate minority...

Column: Trump may win GOP nomination without majority
WASHINGTON — Last Thursday, Donald Trump called Pope Francis a “pawn” of the Mexican government and accused the leader of the world’s Catholics of “disgraceful” rhetoric. The next day, he approvingly retold an apocryphal story about a U.S. general ordering Muslims shot...

Column: Why the DNC is worried about Bernie Sanders
WASHINGTON — Why does the Democratic establishment so dislike Bernie Sanders? Consider this statistic: Hillary Clinton has raised more than $26 million for the Democratic National Committee and state Democratic parties so far this campaign. And Sanders? $1,000. That’s no typo....

Column: Donald Trump makes me miss George W. Bush
WASHINGTON — I had a twinge of nostalgia watching George W. Bush campaign for his little brother in South Carolina Monday night. He was earthy. He recalled a previous visit to a South Carolina breakfast spot, where an animal-rights demonstrator dressed as a pig interrupted Bush’s...

Column: The ugly politics around Scalia's death
WASHINGTON — In the first minutes after the shocking news spread Saturday that Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia had died, Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Charles E. Grassley tried to be reasonable. It didn’t go well for him. The Iowa Republican, informed in a phone call...

Column: Rubio self-destructs in New Hampshire
WASHINGTON — Let’s dispel once and for all with this fiction that Marco Rubio knows what he’s doing. A week ago, the youthful senator from Florida was in great shape. His surprisingly strong finish in the Iowa caucuses left him with a clear chance to consolidate mainstream Republican...

Column: Cut Clinton some slack
NASHUA, N.H. — Q: When is a win not a win? A: When the winner is Hillary Clinton. The Iowa Democratic Party confirmed in its final tally Tuesday that Clinton had won Monday night’s caucuses. She not only beat Bernie Sanders but got more votes than any Republican candidate, and...

Column: GOP establishment strikes back
WAUKEE, Iowa — The establishment struck back. The headlines will show that Ted Cruz won the Iowa caucuses, but the more significant message out of Iowa was that Marco Rubio was neck-and-neck with Donald Trump for second place and within a few points of the lead: It showed that mainstream...

Column: Nominating Sanders would be insane
WASHINGTON — I adore Bernie Sanders. I agree with his message of fairness and I share his outrage over inequality and corporate abuses. I think his righteous populism has captured the moment perfectly. I respect the uplifting campaign he has run. I admire his authenticity. And I...

Column: For Trump, a British response of ridicule
WASHINGTON — The British Parliament set out Monday afternoon to debate a question that is often argued on this side of pond but has never before been taken up in the halls of Westminster: Is Donald Trump dangerous? Or is he merely a buffoon? The man who would Make America Great...

Column: High court again shows its political stripes
WASHINGTON — Just in time for the 2016 election, the Roberts Court has found yet another way to stack the deck in favor of the rich. By all appearances at Monday’s argument, the five Republican-appointed justices are ready to upend a 40-year precedent guiding labor relations in...
