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: Metadata muddle
By Ruth Marcus WASHINGTON — In policymaking, as in life, there is an important difference between can and should. Whether a particular practice is constitutional does not make it sound. Whether the government is permitted to do something does not mean that it ought to. The raging...

Column: Women can have a lot
WASHINGTON -- The most unintentionally funny part of Anne-Marie Slaughter's Atlantic article, the latest in the "mommies-can't-have-it-all" genre, comes when she describes her supersonic version of the Mommy Track. "I have not exactly left the ranks of full-time career women," writes...

Column: Stirring the constitutional pot
WASHINGTON -- In the age of eight-figure checks to super PACs, is it time to for a constitutional amendment that could end this dangerous farce? The notion of fiddling with the First Amendment should make anyone nervous -- especially anyone who has spent a career benefiting from...

Column: A submissive president?
WASHINGTON -- I didn't want to write a column about Michele Bachmann, but my husband told me to. Naturally, I listened. Not! Poor man, he can hardly get me to pick up the dry cleaning. Apparently, things are different Chez Bachmann. Running for Congress in 2006, the Minnesota...

Column: All talk, no action
DAVOS, Switzerland -- The state of the union is ... leaderless. Sounds harsh, but when it comes to digging America out from what President Obama calls its "mountain of debt," I'm becoming increasingly worried that this assessment is accurate. The president talks the talk about...

Column: It's too late for dignity
WASHINGTON -- My favorite part of the ethics report on Charlie Rangel involves his efforts to "close" a $10 million gift "to create AIG Hall" as part of the Rangel Center at the City College of New York. Yes, that AIG. At a meeting in April 2008, the New York Democrat, then chairman...
