  • Where the buck really stops

    WASHINGTON -- The thrashing that voters administered to the Democrats in the midterm congressional elections confirmed the old admonition Harry Truman kept on his White House desk: "The buck stops here." The Republicans widened their hold on the House...

    Next for Democrats: Give the voters something to believe in
    All right, all right, I didn't see the wave coming. All those margin-of-error polls seemed to suggest that Democrats would likely hold their own — probably not keep the Senate but make a respectable showing overall. Wrong. All the caveats are...
  • Can Obama's presidency be saved?

    Can Obama's presidency be saved?
    Even before the drubbing his party suffered in last week's congressional election, President Obama was visibly frustrated by Republicans' tenacious opposition to his second-term agenda. Now he's heading into the final years of his presidency facing a...
  • John Kass: Even in defeat the president remains inscrutable

    In "The Secret Life of Barack Obama," our story begins, as such stories often do, with our hero in a dream. He's photographed on a Hawaiian beach, posed by his handlers like some Hollywood starlet, droplets of sea foam dripping from his Chicago...

    A $1.1 trillion spending bill that Congress completed action on over the weekend will provide funding to keep Chicago-area mass transit and roadway projects moving forward, as well as expand pedestrian and bicycle safety programs, transportation officials...
  • After this election, expect more, not less, confrontation

    At some point during the last two weeks, Democrats in Washington began privately acknowledging that they will almost certainly lose their majority in the U.S. Senate on Tuesday. Rather than discussing strategies for winning, they have shifted to excuses...
  • A D.C. cure: Take the hard votes

    What day is it?" "It's today," squeaked Piglet. "My favorite day," said Pooh. As a proud member of the "don't just do something, sit there" school of politics, I don't fret much about partisanship and gridlock. Partisanship and gridlock aren't bugs...
  • Supposed War On Women Built On Mythical Menaces

    One of the wonders of this political moment is feminist contentment about the infantilization of women in the name of progressive politics. Government, encouraging academic administrations to micromanage campus sexual interactions, now assumes that,...
  • Ethnic aristocracies have no place in modern America

    Once upon a time, the liberal position was to reject the old discriminatory branding of people by the color of their skins rather than by the content of their characters. Not now. Political and career advantage is found in trumpeting -- or occasionally...
