Jan 18,2008
Bill Clinton was elected president in 1992 using James Carville's slogan "It's the economy, stupid." The Democrats thus capitalized on a temporary economic recession during the last year of George H.W. Bush's administration. Could 2008 be a repeat performance? The falling stock market, rising unemployment, skyrocketing oil prices, subprime mortgage collapse and the Michigan recession have moved to front and center in the primaries. Will the Republicans get it? Or will they just keep mouthing ... [full story]

With the 110th Congress convening soon, the race for president is likely to heavily influence activities on Capitol Hill in 2008. From the president's annual State of the Union Address and submission of the fiscal 2009 federal budget to formulation of a congressional budget resolution and allocation of funds to federal agencies, it all will take place in anticipation of an electoral and largely partisan storm front. This year's session is "do or die" time ... [full story]

Give Barack Obama his due. He won a smashing victory in Iowa, then gave a stirring speech framed as a transformational moment in American history. Millions watching him speak Thursday night presumably saw a plausible president, quite possibly the next president. But first, a few gritty details. Obama is still the presidential contender with a one-page resume. The Illinois state legislature and half of one term in the U.S. Senate is scant preparation to be ... [full story]

When U.S. Sen. Hillary Clinton, D-N.Y., showed television viewers the Christmas presents she wants to give us if she is elected president, her most important was universal pre-kindergarten, following closely after universal health care. Clinton was reminding us of her status as the grand dame of the ideology expressed in her favorite African slogan, "It takes a village to raise a child." Indeed, there seem to be many busybodies who believe the village, i.e., government ... [full story]

With the holiday season over and 2008 upon us, it's time to reflect upon the past year and assess our achievements and setbacks in order to start the New Year anew. In January 2007, the black community observed the installation of new congressional leaders, including the first ever black chairman of the powerful House Ways and Means Committee - New York Rep. Charles Rangel. Rangel was joined by a handful of other blacks ascending to ... [full story]

"WTO" now stands for "World Trade Outrage" rather than its original name, World Trade Organization. The World Trade Organization just ruled that the Caribbean nation of Antigua and Barbuda can freely violate American copyrights and trademarks in order to punish the United States for laws prohibiting Internet gambling. Congress passed the Unlawful Internet Gambling Enforcement Act in 2006 after finding that "Internet gambling is a growing cause of debt collection problems for insured depository institutions ...

Americans are in a somber mood as the book closes on 2007. Economic worries, underperforming politicians and an unsettled world mar America's traditional optimism. Yet, a closer look yields more reasons for hope than many imagine. Start with the economy. True, most forecasts see a slowing economy, perhaps even recession looming. Declining home prices, after the giddy run-up of recent years, are making millions of American families feel less affluent even as mortgage defaults rise ... [full story]

Assassination. It's one of the ugliest words in human history, describing a crime so heinous it rates a special definition beyond murder. Not always the action of demented malcontents, the killing of political leaders - from the plot against Julius Caesar to the recent outrage in Pakistan - has often foiled workable self-government. For Benazir Bhutto's troubled country, her killing may mean yet another discouraging resort to martial law. Americans this week are reminded that ... [full story]

The latest polls show that Republican voters are far from agreeing on a consensus candidate, a presidential nominee who embodies conservative ideals and can win in 2008. Even as that search continues, Arizona's Sen. John McCain has climbed back into contention with a dramatic resurgence showing conclusively that he deserves a second look from the Republican faithful. In recent weeks, McCain has garnered national-news endorsements from four newspapers; two from traditionally conservative papers, the Manchester, ... [full story]

Christmas may have come early this year for the families of thousands of federal inmates with crack cocaine convictions, thanks to recent actions by the U.S. Supreme Court, President George W. Bush and the U.S. Sentencing Commission. Back in the 1980s at the height of the crack epidemic in urban America, our nation's leaders labored under the misconception that the less expensive form of cocaine was much more addictive than its powder form, based on ...

OK, so I never spent a dime to see any of the Terminator's movies. But I'm beginning to like what I see in the California Governor's Office. Arnold Schwarzenegger chose to be a Republican, yes - but he's avoided that familiar trap called party loyalty. One must reject the implication of a whimsical look at the governor in last Sunday's Los Angeles Times, titled "Benedict Arnold?" Suffice it to say Schwarzenegger is the first truly ... [full story]

U.S. News & World Report, which has made a name for itself by ranking and announcing the best colleges every year, is now ranking and listing the best careers for young people. A comparison of the latest lists shows a shocking disconnect and makes for dispiriting holiday reading. While the price of a college education has skyrocketed far faster than inflation, many careers for which colleges prepare their graduates are disappearing. U.S. News' Best Careers ... [full story]

In the Gospel According to Seinfeld, here's how the Christmas story might go: Joseph: Did you see what those strange-looking men gave to little Jesus? Mary: Yes, dear. Joseph: What on earth can a baby do with gold, frankincense and myrrh? Mary: Well, I suppose we could always regift them. The Word came from a 1995 episode of the "Seinfeld" TV sitcom. Regift: The gift that keeps on giving. And it stuck like gum on ... [full story]
