Macron on Trumpism: Non! (Thu, 26 Apr 2018)
WASHINGTON -- The early story line about President Trump and French President Emmanuel Macron focused on their "bromance" and Trump's puerile claim to dominance when he brushed what he said was dandruff off Macron's suit. But on the last day of his state visit on Wednesday, Macron showed he will not be trifled with. He used a speech to a joint session of Congress to engage in a full-scale takedown of Trumpism, wrapped in a love letter to the United States and a call on Americans to live up to the values embedded in our own history. Macron, speaking forcefully in English, held nothing back. He...

Trump Cannot Make the Manafort Case Disappear (Thu, 26 Apr 2018)
WASHINGTON -- When August 2016 began, Paul Manafort was about 11 weeks into his job as chairman of Donald Trump's campaign.

On the very day he was forced out, the financially strapped Manafort created a shell company that received $13 million in...

Trump's People Would Dirty Everyone's Nest But Their Own (Thu, 26 Apr 2018)

Just not in his state of Montana. Zinke may offer elaborate explanations for why he's exempting Montana, where the federal government owns 29 percent of the landmass. The obvious would be Zinke's possible interest in running for Montana governor. But...

Microtrends, Not Politics, Lead the Nation (Thu, 26 Apr 2018)
If you want to understand where America is heading, a good place to start is with Mark Penn's new book, "Microtrends Squared." Penn came to fame in the 1990s as a pollster in the Clinton White House, later served as chief strategy officer for Microsoft, and is now chairman of the Harris Poll. One of the most valuable parts of the book is its recognition that the culture leads and politicians lag behind. Of the 50 microtrends identified by Penn, only seven deal with politics. That ratio seems about right. The other 43 highlight trends involving love and relationships, health and diet,...
