Hillary Has ‘Half a Dream’

nytimes.com — Durham, N.H. - One of the most striking statistics to come of the Iowa caucus entry polling was the enormous skew of young voters away from Hillary Clinton and to Bernie Sanders. Only 14 percent of caucusgoers 17 to 29 supported Clinton, while 84 percent supported Sanders.

White America’s ‘Broken Heart’

nytimes.com — On Sunday, at the Corinthian Baptist Church in Des Moines, former President Bill Clinton, looking frail and sounding faint, stumped for his wife, working through her qualifications with a husband's devotion and a Svengali's facility.

nytimes.com — Monday night's presidential town hall provided the best format and platform yet for the Democratic candidates. Each was able to play to his or her strengths without the back-and-forth conflict-baiting that debate moderators seem to demand. Even so, Hillary Clinton stood out.

Hillary Clinton Stumbles

nytimes.com — In October, when Hillary Clinton made a spectacle of the congressional Benghazi committee during a marathon interrogation that seemed designed to make a spectacle of her, she emerged stronger than ever. Her polls numbers surged. That performance had come on the heels of a strong debate performance the week before in the first Democratic presidential debate.

Charles Blow: GOP candidates and the Apocalypse

heraldtribune.com — Last week I suffered through another dust-dry Republican debate in which a slimmed-down roster of seven candidates leveled many of the same attacks and regurgitated many of the same staid pitches.There were a few flashes of life that caught my attention or made me chuckle:Ted Cruz debuted some entertaining lines of attack to rebuff the questions the real estate developer keeps raising about whether Cruz is indeed a "natural born citizen" and able to become president.
