Uncommon Ground | New Republic

newrepublic.com — In May, The Boston Globe conducted a poll to find out what Bostonians think of their city's mayor, Tom Menino. Most of the questions were common to public-opinion surveys about elected officials: Do you approve or disapprove of the way he is doing his job? Do you have a favorable or unfavorable opinion of him?

Martha Coakley Isn't Choking in the Massachusetts Governor Race

newrepublic.com — There's always been a predetermined quality to Martha Coakley's campaign for Massachusetts governor-with pundits and politicos just waiting for her to fall on her face so that they can flash the "choke" sign. Having so badly blown her run for the U.S.

UNC Academic Scandal: A Reminder that Student-Athlete Is a Myth

newrepublic.com — Friday night, my seven-year-old son will go the University of North Carolina men's basketball team's first exhibition game of the season. He'll wear his #5 Carolina-blue jersey, in honor of his favorite player Marcus Paige, and he'll cheer loudly for his second-favorite player, Kennedy Meeks.

Kay Hagan: BP Oil Spill Was Obama's Most Inspiring Moment

newrepublic.com — If the homestretch of a campaign brings to mind the state fairthe crisp fall air, the abundance of fried foods, pigs!then the most popular carnival game on the Midterms Midway has been Democratic candidates distancing themselves from Barack Obama.

Alison Lundergan Grimes' 2014 Senate Campaign Is a Disaster

newrepublic.com — It seems like a safe assumption that if you're currently a Democratic candidate for the U.S. Senate, you voted for Barack Obama two years ago. And if you're a Democratic candidate for the U.S. Senate who also served as a delegate for Obama at the 2012 Democratic Convention?

Mike Allen's Politico Playbook Dings Obama, Flacks for Cafe Milano

newrepublic.com — "ONE FOR THE BOOKS," Mike Allen writes in this morning's "Playbook" while calling our attention to a New York Post article about Barack Obama's Tuesday night fundraiser: "Obama slams billionaires at the home of a guy named Rich Richman," by N.Y.

Jim Webb for President: Why He's Unlikely to Run in 2016

newrepublic.com — The response from political journalists to yesterday's announcement by Jim Webb that he was "seriously looking" at a 2016 White House run fell into two categories. Among some, there was anticipation and maybe even gratitude, since a Webb presidential campaign would give reporters something to write about other than Hillary Clinton.

Chuck Todd on Meet the Press Has a Terrible Metaphor for Politics

newrepublic.com — Sunday on "Meet the Press," Chuck Todd decreed that the 2014 Senate races aren't about Democrat versus Republican or liberal versus conservative but, rather, coffee versus chicken-or, to borrow Todd's terminology, "Starbucks Nation" versus "Chick-fil-A Country." As Todd explained it, "Starbucks Nation" exists in "big cities" and their "adjacent suburbs" and is populated by Democrats.

Rand Paul's Foreign Policy Evolution: From Isolationist to Realist

newrepublic.com — When it comes to foreign policy, Rand Paul contains multitudes. He was for ending foreign aid to Israel before he was against it-before he was for it again but only after ending foreign aid to lots of other countries first. He was against building a fence along the U.S.-Mexican border before he was for one-and a "double-layered" fence at that.

Jason Zengerle on Rand Paul

gq.com — Not so long ago, Rand Paul -son of Ron, "modern-day revolutionary," and practicing ophthalmologist-would have been written off as a harmless political extremist. For believing that the Federal Reserve should be gutted. Or that the Civil Rights Act was unconstitutional. Or that the Department of Education is un-American.

Call me cynical, but the Nike/Beats/Sprite LeBron ads leave me cold. They make it seem like his going back to CLE was a marketing ploy.

@JillDLawrence @AlecMacGillis @charlescwcooke Markey, Swift, Cellucci, and Brown all fall somewhere on the hack spectrum.
