From where I stand: The leaders of the two major political parties should have refused a move as dangerous to the country's democratic integrity as the "nuclear option." They failed.
From Where I Stand
From Where I Stand: In a political world that is normalizing the irrational more and more every day, our obligation is not to be like those who would secure themselves by making others insecure.
From Where I Stand: Is there no hope left for solidarity, given these cavernous divides between us, even if we can't all get behind the president as a person right now?
From Where I Stand: Party politics do not explain how and why our national electorate voted the way it did for the highest office in the land.
From Where I Stand: We must be thankful for memory -- the memory of the values and ideals this country has bred into us since its inception.
From Where I Stand: Up to now, I didn't write about so important a subject as the presidential election, which seemed like a tiger, impossible to ride.
From Where I Stand: The national concerns in presidential elections are no longer about policy but rather temperament, honesty -- and low standards.
From Where I Stand: Human rights forum at Carter Center brought together people from around the globe who had invested their lives in the welfare of people they did not know.
From Where I Stand: We can take two problems in America, the lack of jobs and the need for infrastructure, and combine them to make our country truly greater.
From Where I Stand: At this point in the history of this country, the tangle between the political system itself and the politicians it spawns is impossible to ignore.
