While Giuliani and McCain register 'morally repugnant' on the religious right's traditional-values meter, Romney has a bigger problem: many conservative Christian evangelical leaders don't believe his religion measures up For more than two decades social and economic conservatives have artfully put aside their differences and forged a powerful coalition -- under the umbrella of the Republican Party -- that has won five of the last seven presidential elections and, until this past November, controlled Congress ...

Canada in the summer and Mexico in the spring offer good weather for planning international policies. Nervousness about the political weather, however, is putting the third Security and Prosperity Partnership summit taking place Aug. 20-21 at a site where the uninvited can be easily excluded: the Fairmont Le Chateau Montebello resort about 50 miles outside of Quebec. The cheering gallery for SPP is hysterically chanting that its goal is not a North American "union" modeled ... [full story]

Those who imagine an easy way out of Iraq via diplomacy see Iran and Syria as parts of the solution. That's wishful thinking, at least for now. Far from being candidates for a deal to stabilize Iraq, Iran and Syria are instead waging proxy war against U.S. forces in Iraq. The ruling mullahs in Tehran and the Assad dictatorship in Damascus want the United States defeated in Iraq. Listening to the Democrats' presidential candidates, watching ... [full story]

F. Scott Fitzgerald said that "The test of a first-rate intelligence is the ability to hold two opposed ideas in mind at the same time and still retain the ability to function." Congress is challenging this standard as it addresses the nation's energy future. Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nevada, and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., want Congress to complete comprehensive energy legislation soon. But Capitol Hill is increasingly paralyzed by the opposing ideas it ... [full story]

PORTSTEWART, NORTHERN IRELAND - The release of "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows," the final book in the Harry Potter series, has momentarily diverted the public's attention from certain realities: The weather, which normally depresses during winter months when there is less sunlight, has been crying unmercifully on Britain, bringing what the Daily Telegraph calls "chaos and misery" as homes are flooded, flights are canceled, or delayed, and train and subway service is disrupted.A government ...

Credit CNN with trying to shake things up in an otherwise dull, exasperating and too-long campaign season with its YouTube Democratic presidential "debate" Monday night. There was a good deal of silliness, like Sen. Chris Dodd claiming he has white hair because he's a hardworking senator (what does that make senators with dark hair, dyed hair or no hair?).There were also poignant moments, like the woman who suffers from breast cancer wanting to know more ...

Recently forced out as president of the World Bank, Paul Wolfowitz, one of the primary architects of U.S. President George W. Bush's Iraq war, is heading back to familiar surroundings. And the Washington-based American Enterprise Institute (AEI), one of the United States' premier conservative think-tanks, is more than pleased to welcome him back. Earlier this month, AEI President Christopher DeMuth announced that Wolfowitz would be coming on board as a visiting scholar to work on ... [full story]

To no one's surprise, all 16 U.S. intelligence agencies agree that Osama bin Laden's al-Qaeda network poses the main threat of terrorist attack on the United States. That's the message of the National Intelligence Estimate released last week. The same conspiracy of murderous fanatics that inflicted a terrorist Pearl Harbor on us Sept. 11, 2001, is still dedicated to hitting America again, if possible with the chemical, biological or nuclear weapons of mass murder. That ... [full story]

In extraordinary coordination, the judiciary committees of both the U.S. Senate and House of Representatives in the same week approved a bill, which, if it becomes law, will spell the end of America's world leadership in innovation. Called the Patent Reform Act, it is a direct attack on the unique and successful patent system created by the U.S. Constitution. Before 1999, the U.S. Patent Office was required to keep secret the contents of a patent ... [full story]

More than anything else, Harriet Beecher Stowe's "Uncle Tom's Cabin" alerted 19th century Americans to the evil of slavery. Greeting this author to the White House in early Civil War days, President Lincoln is said to have remarked, "So you're the little lady who started this big war!" Other names are attached historically to great causes. Thomas Paine's fiery "Common Sense" in 1776 inspired the Declaration of Independence. The immigrant Jacob Riis, a New York ... [full story]

Jay Leno and David Letterman never run out of material when they are making fun of politicians, especially when it involves sex and hypocrisy. After years of beating up on Bill Clinton for his sexual indiscretions, the late-night comedians are spending equal time chortling about Republicans who have been caught with their pants down.Their latest target is Sen. David Vitter, a Louisiana Republican. Vitter is an easy target for those looking to play "pin the ... [full story]

Senate Democrats, who had announced an all-nighter Tuesday to reiterate their anti-war positions, packed it in shortly before midnight, surrendering to a greater desire for a few hours sleep. Only a handful of stalwart senators kept the Senate - technically - in session. We know that Senate Democrats don't have the staying power to win the war in Iraq, but can't they even make it through the night without some shuteye?"Harry, sweetheart," said Sen. Barbara ...

The domestic political divide on Iraq is now starkly apparent. Democrats overwhelmingly have become the party of conceding defeat and leaving. Most Republicans, although war weary, too, are willing to persevere in Iraq a while longer. For now, that gives President Bush the upper hand on prosecuting a war he believes can, and must, still be won. To buttress his case, he can point to significant military gains in Iraq - antidotes to the pervasive ... [full story]
