Five Big Questions After the Harshest G.O.P. Debate Yet

nytimes.com — Trump's adversaries put his political evolution, past statements and even business career under more withering scrutiny on Saturday night than at any of the previous debates, as if finally - and belatedly - accepting that his candidacy is here to stay, that they can't trust time or some outside force to bring him down, and that he needs to be treated (and targeted) as the durable leader of the field.

Bruni: Feminism, hell and Hillary Clinton

pressdemocrat.com — There's a weird strain of thought swirling around Clinton's campaign: that we should vote for her because she's a woman. Or that she's inoculated from certain flaws or accusations by dint of gender. Or that, at the least, there's an onus on forward-looking people who care about gender inequality to promote her candidacy.

Feminism, hell and Hillary Clinton

newsobserver.com — I'm 51. My health is decent. And while my mother died young, there's longevity elsewhere in the family tree. I could live to see an openly gay presidential candidate with a real chance of victory. Will there be a "special place in hell" for me if I, as a gay man, don't support him or her?

Five Big Questions About the G.O.P. Debate

nytimes.com — The hands-down most bizarre development on Saturday night was that Rubio confronted an assault from Chris Christie that he knew was coming-and he utterly blew it.

Ted Cruz Won’t Be Denied

nytimes.com — MANCHESTER, N.H. - ANOTHER Ted Cruz rally, another Ted Cruz rant about the media's failure to give him his due. I endured one in the tiny town of Weare, N.H., on Thursday afternoon and had two thoughts. The first was that I'd seldom heard a voice as ripe with self-regard - as juicy with it - as his.

Iowa caucuses do not bode well for Clinton

As badly as Trump wants to build a wall along the Mexican border, I think he'd MUCH prefer a big wall around Bush and Cruz.

They need to replace that little bell with an enormous gong. Futile. #GOPDebate
