Trump and His Generals (Thu, 22 Jun 2017)
Donald Trump earned respect from the Washington establishment for appointing three of the nation's most accomplished generals to direct his national security policy: James Mattis (secretary of defense), H.R. McMaster (national security adviser) and John Kelly (secretary of homeland security). In the first five months of the Trump administration, the three generals -- along with Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, the former Exxon Mobil CEO -- have already recalibrated America's defenses. At home, illegal immigration is down by some 70 percent. Abroad, a new policy of principled realism seeks to...

It's Not About Trump, It's About His Voters (Thu, 22 Jun 2017)
In Election 2016, Democrats seemed to assume that the unpopularity of Donald Trump would be enough to keep him out of the White House.

They look at the president's low job approval ratings and assume that simply opposing President Trump should be sufficient to win elections. That was the theory behind...

But just what kind of message and what kind of candidates will deliver victories in the Trump era remain...

A Victory for Party, Not Trump (Thu, 22 Jun 2017)
WASHINGTON -- What we learned from Tuesday's special congressional election in Georgia is that there is no magical solution to the country's Trump problem. This will be a long fight. Karen Handel's victory over Democrat Jon Ossoff was not an endorsement of the president. It was a personal and party success achieved despite him. Democrats are, well, blue because a loss is a loss. You can measure their disappointment by imagining the triumphalism we'd be hearing had Ossoff prevailed. But nothing that happened should make Republicans feel secure about their hold on the House of Representatives....
