Christine O'Donnell's eagerness to go on television is coming back to haunt her campaign for U.S. Senate.
Stephen Colbert and Jon Stewart: Are they he-man enough to face the nation's ultimate gatekeeper?
With little left to say that hasn't been said about this fall's elections, let's look ahead to the contest everyone will be talking about in six weeks: the 2012 presidential contest.
After helping propel several upstart Republican contenders to recent primary victories, Sarah Palin said Friday in Des Moines that it's time for Republicans to unite now that primary season is over.
Did my ears deceive me? Did I hear House Minority Leader John Boehner say on CBS' "Face the Nation" Sunday: "If the only option I have is to vote for those at 250 or below, of course I'm going to do that." He was referring to voting for extending the Bush tax cuts to those making less than $250,000 a year.

The point was to provide an informed second opinion on U.S. policy toward the Kremlin.
On Friday evening, a tall, bespectacled 30-ish Englishman, Matthew Elliott, escorted Lady Margaret Thatcher into a reception at London's 800-year-old Guild Hall. Despite the fact that England is going through its worst economic crisis since Mrs. Thatcher became prime minister more than three decades ago, she was of good cheer as she conversed with those of us who had come to pay our respects. Perhaps a reason for her upbeat manner was that the ideas she (and Ronald Reagan in the United States) championed are once again gaining currency.
