At RealClearPolitics, Peter Berkowitz offers a thoughtful critique of the Iran deal, unlike the foolishness with Trump and Cruz at the Capitol yesterday. Having listened to the debate so far, I remain convinced that this vote is a very close call and no one should be throwing stones at people who decide differently.
At RNS, Mark Silk on the seduction of martyrdom. I have to say, over the weekend I felt sympathy for Ms. Davis but watching her march onto the stage with Mike Huckabee, to the sounds of "Eye of the Tiger," I think Silk's interpretation is ringing true.
At Brookings, Vanessa Williamson on the state of the labor movement today. The key takeaway - many workers would love to join a union, but there are now ideological and structural impediments to labor organizing that did not exist before the Thatcher-Reagan attack on labor. And, guess what? We won't fix the core problem of our economy, growing income inequality, until labor is strong again.
