EDITORIAL: Questions about Kagan

U.S. Solicitor General Elena Kagan is reported to be on the short list to replace Justice David Souter on the Supreme Court. If she were a Republican on the short list for a court opening, Senate Democrats would move heaven and Earth to turn a 1996 contretemps into a major scandal.

EDITORIAL: Palestinians aren't ready for statehood

The expression "two state solution" has taken up residence in Washington as the framing device for yesterday's White House meeting between President Obama and Israel's Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. It is a handy cliche that assumes that creating a Palestinian state will actually solve something. We beg to differ. Published May 19, 2009
