Sizing up the contenders in New Hampshire.
If we can believe Hillary Clinton (and there’s no reason why anyone should), she and Bubba have gone from “dead broke” when they left the White House to accumulating riches that beggar Croesus, the ancient king of Lydia, and Midas, who was rich even before he started selling mufflers for Pontiacs and Chevys. Nevertheless, Hillary and Bubba are lining up now for seconds.
This week, Kraft Foods announced that it was changing the formulation of its famous macaroni and cheese. The company will remove food coloring after being the latest target of an online peasants-with-pitchforks campaign run by a blogger calling herself “The Food Babe.”
Anyone looking for signs that Barack Obama’s presidency is running out of gas got a glimmer of hope this week from his daily schedule.
The first attorney general to be held in contempt of Congress has demonstrated shocking contempt for the law, and the ability to abuse and corrupt it for the political and social agenda of this president.

She already has lambasted vast differences in compensation. “The average CEO makes about 300 times what the average worker makes,” Mrs. Clinton warned. She is right — but she can best appreciate that fact from her own career and family.
With his remarks about Ramadi not mattering, Gen. Dempsey has reached a new low.
As a final nuclear agreement with Iran is pending, there are valuable lessons learned from decades of negotiations with North Korea. Ignoring these lessons would be unfortunate.
The caustic attacks on NBC reporter Richard Engel about the circumstances surrounding his 2012 abduction in Syria puzzled and troubled me — until I listened to some of his comments about the Obama administration’s failures, particularly in the Middle East.
