President Bush has begun a six-day, five-nation visit to Latin America to promote the benefits of democracy and open markets in fighting poverty and improving health care. The trip also is designed to counter the growing influence of Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez, whose vast wealth from petrodollars is winning the hearts of Latin Americans who have not benefited from a decade and a half of U.S. policies designed to spur free trade and interdict drugs. ...

So much for the new spirit of fiscal discipline the Democrats promised to bring to Congress. During last fall's campaigns, Democrats wailed on Republicans for sleazy spending tactics, such as attaching special interest earmarks to other bills and larding up the budget with gifts for the folks back home. Democrats promised to end all that in January, when they returned to Washington as the masters of Congress. Thank goodness we didn't bet on that happening. ... [full story]

The trial of I. Lewis "Scooter" Libby was like the fancy, five-star restaurant you walk away from not quite full, wishing you'd ordered the main entree instead of multiple appetizers. In the end, you didn't get what you came for. Libby, the 56-year-old former chief of staff to Vice President Dick Cheney, was convicted Tuesday on four of five counts of lying under oath and obstructing justice in regards to his role in the leak ...

Conservative pundit Ann Coulter built her reputation by making inflammatory statements designed to infuriate her liberal critics. But her use of an anti-gay slur to describe Democratic presidential contender John Edwards was not merely inflammatory. It was bigoted hate speech warranting condemnation from liberals and conservatives alike. Speaking to the Conservative Political Action Conference in Washington, Coulter said "it turns out you have to go into rehab if you use the word 'faggot,' so I ... [full story]

In return for their service in war, our wounded troops are entitled to the nation's heartfelt thanks and the best medical care money can buy. The nation has betrayed this contract in the past, and now we're failing again. The Washington Post reported last month that Walter Reed Army Medical Center, which delivers world-class surgery and trauma care inside its hospital, has forced outpatients to suffer months or years of neglect as they try to ...

The Bush administration has been clear about what it wants from Congress in terms of comprehensive immigration reform, and it was just as clear Wednesday when it dispatched Homeland Security Secretary Michael Chertoff and Commerce Secretary Carlos Gutierrez to Capitol Hill to argue for what the White House thinks is the way to fix a broken system. It is ironic that President Bush, who encountered such resistance from fellow Republicans last year, may now find ... [full story]

A 9 percent drop in the Shanghai stock market triggered a 3.3 percent sell-off in the Dow Jones Industrial Average on Tuesday. It is a sign of how the rise of China as an economic powerhouse increasingly will send tremors through America's economy and politics in years to come. The Chinese stock meltdown was the trigger for the sell-off on Wall Street, but not the cause. That's a key distinction for those trying to understand ... [full story]
