With apologies to Bob Dylan, you can’t tell which way the wind is blowing without a weather vane, particularly if you are indoors looking out. We had no way of knowing what was happening in the bowels of the Justice Department and the White House before Joe Biden decided not to run. Now, we know:

In the aftermath of the Oct.15 debate, Senator Bernie Sanders closed the gap between himself and front-runner Hillary Clinton. The average of the last six national polls, as reported by, stretching over a three-week period before the debate, Hillary’s vote share in a Democratic primary was 44 percent. In the CNN/ORG poll right after

The filings last week of campaign finances reveal that Sanders has $27 million cash on hand, just slightly short of Hillary Clinton’s $33 million. When funds earmarked for the general election are subtracted from each total, the gap will probably be even narrower. Clinton has outraised Sanders by more than 2:1, but she has spent

The rapid rise and equally rapid fall of Carly Fiorina deserves our attention. Before the most recent debate, she was languishing in the polls with only 4 percent of the vote (CBS, Sept. 9-13). After a smashing performance in the second debate, she soared into second place with 15 percent (CNN, Sept. 17-19). Now the

Ever since the coup of 2010, when almost 70 new Republicans powered their way up to Congress, overturning longtime Democratic incumbents, the established House leadership — elevated to power by the triumph of their youngsters — has disregarded, disrespected and disappointed them. Now

The last fundraising report indicates that the Sanders-Clinton match has all the hallmarks of the Obama-Clinton race of 2008, with Hillary Clinton making the same mistakes: —As her momentum slows, so has Clinton’s fundraising. In the winter — second quarter — she raised $48 million. But in the third quarter, this past summer, she raised

The latest NBC/WSJ poll, conducted Sept. 20-24, has Hillary Clinton only slightly ahead of Bernie Sanders in the national sample of registered Democratic voters. Clinton polls at 42 percent, Sanders at 35 percent and Joe Biden at 17 percent. With Sanders a bare seven points behind the former secretary of state, her candidacy is in

John Boehner needed resigning. His leadership has consisted of acting as an intermediary in the ongoing surrender negotiations of the conservatives we elected to Congress and the president we were trying to circumscribe.
