Obama and Boehner ? Clinton and Gingrich

The assumption is that the Democrats will rebound and there will be progress in the halls of Congress under new bipartisan leadership between President Obama and Rep. John Boehner, as in 1994 between then-President Clinton and former Rep. Newt Gingrich. But Obama is no Clinton.

Russ Feingold’s Loss is the Most Tragic

I used to have nothing against the voters of Wisconsin, however yesterday’s election changed that perspective completely.  Wisconsin had, in the U.S. Senate, campaign finance reform’s most fearless advocate.

We are all tired.  This election season is exhausting.  Those working on campaigns have been clocking hours reaching the triple digits per week to help boost their candidates chances of getting elected.  For the most part, an election such as this deserves a strict degree of seriousness throughout.  Our country’s

Where is the Coverage For the Contentious Races?

Do we really need this much coverage on the Deleware Senate and New York Gubernatorial races? Everyone likes a good show, but when it comes down to it we need more media coverage on the still contentious races across the country.

The God Factor and The U.S. Senate

By now most have seen, or at least heard about, the ad that Jack Conway (D-KY) is running to attack Rand Paul (R-KY) on religion. Conway took, what I consider to be, a cowardly last-ditch effort to discredit Rand Paul. In a race where Paul has been consistently leading Conway
