There's a Special Place for Hillary, Too, and It's the South

Well, that was a catastrophe. Hillary Clinton lost in New Hampshire Tuesday night, which was not a surprise. The surprise came a few days before the election, when her friend Madeleine Albright warned young women that there is a special place in hell for girls like them, who don’t help other women. And when Gloria Steinem mused on Bill Maher’s show that Bernie Sanders’ young female supporters were just showing up for the eye candy of liberal boys who were going for the Bern.

New Hampshire Triggers Hazard Lights for Clinton Campaign

HOOKSETT, N.H. — The long line of cars was still snaking down the dark country road on their way to the Hillary Clinton “victory party” when the networks called the New Hampshire primary for Bernie Sanders.

Empathy: Trump's New Hampshire Snow Job

Londonderry, N.H. — The final questioner at a deliberately understated Donald Trump town hall was a former United Airlines flight attendant who had almost been working on one of the doomed 9/11 flights. As she explained in her moving, but rambling, tale of survivor guilt, “I was so angry and so sad. And the two together, it was tough to function.”

A Lecture on Sexism from Noted Feminist Bill Clinton

Like other humans, women don’t usually love being told how to feel, what to think or whom to support. Guilt trips often go nowhere. And threats that those naughty girls who won’t fall in line just might go to hell? They not only don’t work, but backfire.

N.H. Forecast: Only the Snow Is a Definite

NASHUA, N.H. — What will happen in Tuesday’s Republican primary here? First, let’s examine the unlikely possibility that someone other than Donald Trump could win the state. Again, this is highly unlikely, as The Donald has amassed a “yuge” lead, but of course it’s still possible; New Hampshire likes to surprise us, likes to keep us guessing.

Rubio: Too Glib for His Own Good?

Jeb's Last Stand: 'Let's Talk About Getting George Bush Elected!'

Bedford, N.H. — Tom Ridge had barely begun introducing Jeb Bush at a town hall here on Saturday when he called out to the over-capacity crowd, “Let’s talk about getting George Bush elected!”

When Even Poisoning Children Is Political, That’s an American Tragedy

A Long Primary Is Good for Hillary Clinton

Hillary Clinton’s victory in Iowa Monday night was far more decisive than the razor-thin margin would indicate.

Stayin' Alive: Marco's Moment?

“This is the moment they said would never happen,” Marco Rubio declared after the Iowa results were announced. “For months they told us we had no chance. Because we offered too much optimism in a time of anger, we had no chance.”

Bloomberg Can't Win, Ought to Run Anyway

If former New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg decides to run for president this year, he’s not going to win. He should still run, however, to establish a moderate political movement that lasts beyond 2016.

Democrats Say: Learn From the Bern

If you are a Democratic member of Congress or care about someone who is, I understand the pit in your stomach. Hillary Clinton had a 69-percent approval rating when you thought she’d boogaloo her way to the nomination in 2016. Now that it actually is 2016, it’s Bernard Sanders, the 74-year-old unkempt, professional grump who is filling stadiums with college kids and running ads so good they make you remember why you got into this soul-crushing business in the first place. And did I mention he’s a socialist?

Cruz Wins, But Iowa Barely Winnows Field
