Don’t Take New Hampshire for Granite

wsj.com — News Corp is a network of leading companies in the worlds of diversified media, news, education, and information services. The candidates face a confident electorate, ready to winnow their ranks. You've heard all the Iowa analysis you need. It was a triumph for Cruz, a humbling for Trump, a boost for Rubio.

Socialism Gets a Second Life

wsj.com — News Corp is a network of leading companies in the worlds of diversified media, news, education, and information services. Why do the young love Bernie Sanders? Because their experience of capitalism is different. Nashua, N.H. I was watching Bernie Sanders speak last week at a town hall in Bedford when an early intuition became a conviction: Take Mr. Sanders seriously.

Palin and the GOP’s Uncertain Trumpeters

wsj.com — News Corp is a network of leading companies in the worlds of diversified media, news, education, and information services. What Donald Trump needs is an injection of seriousness. The same is true of his opponents. Sarah Palin's public performances continue to be distinctive.

The GOP Establishment’s Civil War

wsj.com — News Corp is a network of leading companies in the worlds of diversified media, news, education, and information services. A free-for-all between Christie, Rubio, Cruz and others, while Trump hovers above it all. What everyone's waiting for is the winnowing.

Will the New Year’s Tumult Trump the Old?

wsj.com — In 2016-soon, in just about a month-we'll find out if Donald Trump voters vote. They say they're voters and not just rally-goers. In Iowa on Feb. 1 and New Hampshire on Feb. 9, we'll know if it's a movement or a moment. We are going to learn a lot pretty quickly.

In Celebration of Modest Christmases Past

wsj.com — A long time ago in a country far, far away, America had less of everything and holidays were easier and more modest. Only 50 and 60 years ago, well within human memory, Christmas was a plainer, simpler affair. Everyone-even the rich, but certainly the poor and in-between-had less. Because America had less.
