While the fight for control of the U.S. Senate has long hung fire, what’s new in the election stretch-run reckoning is the possibility that a generally bad year for Republicans is eroding the previously very high odds the GOP would maintain its majority in the House. Republicans are probably going...More »]]>

In the wake of last night’s final presidential debate and the ongoing flight of GOP “insiders” from Donald Trump’s banana-republican refusal to say he will accept the election results, the odds of a post-election “struggle for the soul of the party” have gone up significantly. As noted conservative-watcher Robert Costa...More »]]>

In an election cycle that has pushed American politics to new heights of partisan acrimony, the Washington foreign-policy elite has represented a singular bastion of bipartisan comity. A large segment of the GOP’s neoconservative wing broke with Donald Trump in the early days of his general-election campaign. A significant number...More »]]>

Hillary Clinton has spent a lot of time and money arguing that she is a far better role model for America’s youth than Donald Trump is. In making this (incredibly easy) case, Clinton has focused on the mogul’s cruelty, intolerance, and misogyny. But the Democratic nominee’s strongest argument...More »]]>
