Matt Cory Column: A historic night for Tristen, even if he doesn’t know it yet
First off, this is not a column about politics or politicians or policies. It is not an endorsement of any one candidate or party. This column is about history. This column is about Tristen. Like millions of Americans, I watched Thursday night as Hillary Clinton officially became...

Gene Lyons: The only capable candidate
In my estimation, there’s only one presidential candidate in 2016 fully capable of doing the job, and she’s anything but a natural. As Hillary Clinton’s also been the target of maybe the longest-running smear campaign in American history — including roughly a dozen partisan...

Dick Polman: Is Hillary ready for ISIS?
If Hillary Clinton hopes to sell herself as a foreign policy whiz and credible commander-in-chief, she’ll need to perform better than she did this weekend in response to the Paris attacks. What we wanted to hear from Hillary, in Saturday night’s debate, was a substantive strategy...

Gene Lyons: Hillary’s staffers aren’t doing her any favors
Although nobody sensible would choose to do it this way, America’s political fate has become captive to the TV news media’s never-ending quest for ratings. Months before the earliest votes are cast, the 2016 presidential contest has turned into a “reality TV” melodrama. The...

Byron York: Benghazi investigators ponder: Is Hillary lying, or the State Department?
Last March, when Hillary Clinton made her first public comments on the secret email system she maintained while secretary of state, she took care to say she had turned over everything to the State Department. “I ... provided all my emails that could possibly be work-related,”...

Byron York: Hillary Clinton’s new Iraq war trap
President Obama’s decision to send 450 more American troops to Iraq has put Hillary Clinton in a tough spot. What will she say about the fight against the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria? The answer, beyond a few boilerplate remarks, is nothing. There is no topic more radioactive...

Byron York: If Hillary becomes president, who will make her obey the law?
Last year, before Hillary Clinton’s secret email system became publicly known, Congress passed a law to keep presidents from trying the same trick. If Clinton wins the White House, the law could well be put to the test. The statute is the Presidential and Federal Records Act Amendments...

Dick Polman: Bad news for Hillary
Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders insists, “We’re going to do better than people think.” I agree. Granted, a 73-year-old socialist (he prefers the western European term “democratic socialist”) is a long shot to wrest the 2016 nomination from Hillary Clinton....

Rich Lowry: Sid Vicious returns
Charity Navigator should make this an informal rule: If your charity is employing Sidney Blumenthal, it automatically goes on the watch list. The ethical controversies around Hillary Clinton and the Clinton Foundation have often seemed 1990s redux, and never more so than when a New...

Joseph Cotto: Remember the ‘B’ word
Things are looking up for Hillary Clinton. Her daughter, Chelsea, recently went through a high-profile pregnancy and gave birth to a celebration fit for major royalty. Bill has long-since reinvented himself as a human rights crusader and political science guru. The days of Monica...

Donna Brazile: Clinton makes it official
Hillary Clinton’s announcement was as inevitable as the coming of springtime — and with the way the weather has been, the coming of springtime seemed a lot iffier for a while. But now it’s official: Hillary Clinton is running for president of the United States. Now that she’s...

Donna Brazile: Can Hillary survive this new ‘scandal?’
Former U.S. Sen. Hillary Clinton confronted the controversy that’s enveloped Washington, D.C., over the private email account she used exclusively when secretary of state. Like all issues that capture the attention of our partisan-obsessed Congress, this one has been politicized....
