How one state conquered partisan chaos

Posted 10/22/2013 in National Columns

Posted 10/19/2013 in National Columns

Last week, hours before a historic default, Congress finally stopped playing chicken with the world's largest economy and ended the government shutdown. So . . . hurray, right?

 

 

Susan Estrich: Goodbye, affirmative action

Posted 10/19/2013 in National Columns

If Tuesday's argument before the Supreme Court is any indication, a Michigan law prohibiting "preferential treatment" is on its way to being upheld by the United States Supreme Court.

Charles Krauthammer: The way out

Posted 10/12/2013 in National Columns

For all the hyped indignation over GOP "anarchism," there has been remarkable media reticence about the president's intransigence. He has refused to negotiate anything unless the Republicans fully fund the government and raise the debt ceiling - unconditionally.

Clarence Page: Our new three-party system

Posted 10/5/2013 in National Columns

Why another shutdown? Our government has three parties these days: Democrats, Republicans and the new radical Republicans. That "radical Republican" label has some history.
