I've discovered that many of my friends and family, and quite a few of their friends and family, are part of that large block of voters in America, the Undecided.  The Undecided will probably determine many election outcomes, including the Presidency.  It worries me because many more...

It's the age of action, a commercial proclaims as a man drives his old pick up truck along, towing a horse trailer.  The commercial talks about how he knows what to do, how he doesn't get upset, as the truck gets stuck.  He leads his horses out of the trailer, hooks them up to the truck...

On a day when both a Supreme Court judge, and a controversial Democratic senator announced their retirement, another major announcement largely slipped through the cracks. The President's pick to head the Justice Department's Office of Legal Counsel, Dawn Johnsen, withdrew her bid for confirmation...

Dear President Obama: I find myself ending 2009 feeling far less optimistic than I did one year ago. I supported you, not because you were the most experienced candidate or the one with the most impressive résumé, but because I thought I recognized in you a genuine leader capable of persuading...
