Illustration on Hillary Clinton's vanished home in the modern Democrat Party by Alexander Hunter/The Washington Times

Illustration on speculation that Obama will install a successor to continue his agenda by Alexander Hunter/The Washington Times

Who will be Barack Obama's Dmitry Medvedev?

After months of a sleek "will he or won't he" campaign, Vice President Joe Biden announced that he will not seek the Democratic nomination for president.
