Why Mitt Romney Will Win

I don’t know about you, but my head is spinning with all the theories out there about who will win this presidential election and why. I’m as guilty of promulgating them as anyone. Ask any political consultant for a prediction on a race — on anything really — and we’ll take you on a trip […]

How Bibi Can Get a Meeting with Barack

Barack Obama and Benjamin Netanyahu don’t like each other. That much is clear. But they’re really going to have to put aside personal grudges — and fast — because the world is getting scarier by the day.

Send Nevin Yildirim to Albany

Two striking stories of sexual abuse in the news: One springs from Albany, N.Y. The other from 5,000 miles away, in Turkey’s remote Yalvac district.

Shelly Silver Has to Go

Pay close attention to the deafening silence coming out of Albany legislators right now. It tells you everything you need to know about the reality of politics.
