Amazing Grace

Thu, 08 Dec 2016 14:32:00 +0000

Eight years ago, toward the end of the 2008 presidential campaign, Michelle Obama asked me, “Klein, are you going to write a book like Primary Colors about us?” referring to my satirical novel about the 1992 campaign. I spluttered a bit; the thought had never occurred to me. Her husband started to laugh. “Klein can’t…(image)



The Teddy Awards, Even In a Year That Set New Lows for Politicians

Thu, 08 Dec 2016 13:56:06 +0000

It isn’t easy to bestow awards for political courage in an election year–and it’s near impossible after a campaign like the one we’ve just experienced, which set a sad new standard for ugliness and mendacity. But as an eternal optimist, I proceed with my annual chore and will even say something nice about Donald Trump,…(image)



Style Over Substance: Why Fidel Castro’s Revolutionary Chic Was a Fraud

Thu, 01 Dec 2016 18:11:06 +0000

I met Fidel Castro 40 years ago, and he was really, really cool. I was part of an American delegation to Cuba led by Senator George McGovern; we met Castro at his brother Raúl’s farm. He showed up in an open Jeep, in a cloud of dust, wearing his famous combat fatigues. He took us…(image)



Why We Must Focus Now on Maintaining Democracy, Civility and Perspective

Mon, 30 Nov -0001 00:00:00 +0000

Twenty-five years ago, at the beginning of the era that has just ended, I watched Bill Clinton give a pretty good speech in Chicago. Afterward, we talked about it–I was his traveling press corps that evening, and George Stephanopoulos was his entire staff. I had a strange itch of an idea: “Why don’t you ever…(image)



What Comes Next With President Trumpfuture-gop-election-2016-usa-mark-peterson

Mon, 30 Nov -0001 00:00:00 +0000

It turns out that Donald Trump was qualified to be President, after all. He was credentialed by the American people on Election Day. I’m still not sure he’s fit for the job, and I’m certain he’s not prepared for it, and his demeanor remains profoundly unpresidential–but make no mistake, it was his demeanor that won…(image)

Why Hillary Clinton Is the Only Choice to Keep America GreatUS-VOTE-POLITICS-CLINTON

Thu, 03 Nov 2016 11:01:31 +0000

“It is the job of editorial writers,” the late, great Murray Kempton once observed, “to come down from the hills after the battle is over and shoot the wounded.” I’ve been thinking about that as publication after publication has come forward to endorse Hillary Clinton for President–including some that have never made an endorsement before…(image)

The Ultimate Insider Who Could Still Change the Game In the Oval Office

Thu, 27 Oct 2016 09:47:41 +0000

There haven’t been many exhilarating moments in Hillary Clinton’s long slog to the presidency, but this may have been one of them: a gorgeous late-October afternoon in New Hampshire, an outdoor rally amid the falling leaves, a stage full of female candidates–two for Congress, one for the Senate, one for President plus Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth…(image)



Beware the Toxic Sequel to Donald Trump’s Flailing Presidential Campaign

Fri, 21 Oct 2016 09:52:43 +0000

Donald Trump will probably lose this election, which is good news. Here’s the bad news: that loss may be just the beginning of Trump’s toxic presence in American political life. Nightmare scenarios are floating through Republican circles. The best cases posit a bitter and continuing Republican civil war between the Trump and “Establishment” factions of…(image)



7 Key Lessons From the Final Presidential Debate161019_Debate3_Zazoom

Thu, 20 Oct 2016 05:48:08 +0000

Some thoughts about the third Presidential debate: 1. Donald Trump is unfit for the presidency because he doesn’t believe in the will of the American people. Every news outlet said that his refusal to accept the results of the election was the headline tonight—and a very dangerous moment in American history—and I think there needs…(image)

Why the Russian Hacks of Hillary Clinton’s Campaign Should Reassure Us All

Thu, 13 Oct 2016 11:07:59 +0000

In the midst of our bountiful October harvest of Trump grotesqueries, the Russians and Julian Assange organized a WikiLeaks dump of private emails from the Clinton campaign. These revealed a shocking and scandalous fact about the former Secretary of State: she is a politician. Indeed, the documents represent one of the most reassuring moments of…(image)
