Column: How Ryan could recuse himself
WASHINGTON — My fellow Republicans, my fellow Americans: I stand before you today with a heavy heart, to say that I cannot in good conscience support the man my party appears to have chosen to be its nominee for the presidency. As a result, I will be asking Republican National Committee...

Column: Sheryl Sandberg, business titan and single mother
WASHINGTON — Sheryl Sandberg, the chief operating officer of Facebook, would be the first to acknowledge that she is the world’s least-typical single mom. But on this, her second Mother’s Day in that unexpected status — Sandberg’s husband, Dave Goldberg, died suddenly last...

Column: The November reckonings
WASHINGTON — Now that the contours of the general election are reasonably predictable, it is time to start thinking about the tripartite institutional reckoning that should come in November’s aftermath — for the media, Republicans and Democrats. For the media, the assessment...

Column: If Trump were a woman
WASHINGTON — Regarding Donald Trump’s insulting, diminishing assertion about Hillary Clinton that she is only succeeding by playing “the woman’s card” and that if she “were a man, I don’t think she’d get 5 percent of the vote”: If Trump were a woman, he’d be lucky...

Column: The fault line between parties and voters
WASHINGTON — Donald Trump claims the Republican presidential primary system is “corrupt” and “rigged” against him. If anything, the opposite is true: The party’s rules have largely operated in Trump’s favor. Witness the fact that, going into Tuesday’s primaries, Trump...

Column: A conversation beyond bathroom talk
WASHINGTON — Into the overheated, under-informed bathroom wars comes a well-timed intrusion of sanity in the form of a decision by the 4th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals. The court’s ruling in the case of Virginia high-school junior Gavin Grimm, a transgender boy, was correct —...

Column: An unpopularity contest for the ages
WASHINGTON — The 2016 presidential election is shaping up as an unpopularity contest of unprecedented proportions. Assuming, as now appears most likely, that Hillary Clinton will win the Democratic nomination and that either Donald Trump or Ted Cruz becomes the Republican nominee,...

Column: Trump has reached peak incoherence
WASHINGTON — Perhaps the laws of political gravity are about to take hold in the case of Donald Trump. But the lesson of this appalling primary season cautions against discounting Trump’s appeal — which prompts another Trump column, this one on the utter incoherence of his policy...

Column: The battle of the candidates' wives
WASHINGTON — “I think the retweet speaks for itself,” said Donald Trump’s senior policy adviser, Stephen Miller, about the candidate’s posting of an unflattering photo of Heidi Cruz, juxtaposed against his own supermodel spouse. “No need to ‘spill the beans,’”...

Column: Trump's thuggery is inexcusable
WASHINGTON — As he edges closer to winning the Republican nomination, it is possible to discern, at intermittent intervals and in trace amounts, an instinct in Donald Trump to act presidential. There was Trump in a debate earlier this month with a paean to the relative civility...

Column: Meet Merrick Garland
WASHINGTON — Maybe sometimes, even in this crazy town and in this crazy season, the best policy turns out to be the best politics. In the context of the Supreme Court vacancy, President Obama’s choice of Merrick Garland may be the hardest for Republicans to reject — or, as they...

Column: The steep price of a Trump presidency
WASHINGTON — I write today to confess error. A few months back, pondering the ghastly parlor game of choosing between President Donald Trump and President Ted Cruz, I opted — reluctantly, disbelievingly — for Trump, as the lesser of two dangers. Yes, the real estate tycoon is...

Column: A shared resistance to transparency
WASHINGTON — Transparency is not the natural instinct of the politician. The political mind tends to think: What voters don’t know can’t hurt you. What political opponents, and media, do with information can. So the ordinary urge is to hold close, to dribble out, to yield the...

Column: Confirmation gridlock is fixable
WASHINGTON — The judicial wars threaten to engulf us in ceaseless cycles of partisan warfare and recriminations. Herewith, two modest (read: unlikely) proposals to try to mitigate the damage, one involving the chief justice, the other the president. To begin with, though, a stipulation...
