  • Lame duck ends on a wing and a prayer Dec 23, 2014 5:01 AM
    Columnist Donna Brazile: The “lame duck” Congress limped to an end and was able, despite gridlock, to make some accomplishments.

  • Highway Trust Fund needs a solution for the long haul Jul 15, 2014 5:01 AM
    Columnist Donna Brazile: Once again, Congress needs to act — this time to renew the Federal Highway Trust Fund, created in 1956 to help construct and fund our nation’s roadways, bridges, tunnels and sidewalks. The trust fund has been a complete success, but it’s about to run out of money soon if Congress fails to act.

  • The Ukraine: Back to the future Apr 1, 2014 5:01 AM
    Columnist Donna Brazile: Russian President Vladimir Putin seems to be doing his best to see that the world moves back into the future. He is a man of contradictory beliefs, saying he seeks no revival of the Soviet Union, and yet he draws upon the ghost of an empire as a model for the Russia of the future.

  • The good news that you probably haven’t heard Feb 11, 2014 5:01 AM
    Columnist Donna Brazile: Do you like surprises? I have two surprises for you: At least 19 states already in 2014, nearly half, are posting budget surpluses. Yes, surpluses. The other surprise: Since Obama took office, the national deficit has been reduced by one-half.

  • U.S. mayors forced to innovate Jan 28, 2014 5:00 AM
    Columnist Donna Brazile: I recently came across more proof that lawmakers blocking progress are weakening the institution of Congress.

  • The tale of one city Jan 2, 2014 5:00 AM
    Columnist Donna Brazile: “It was the best of times, it was the worst of times.” So goes the first sentence in “A Tale of Two Cities.” It applies to us now. Except, 2013 was the tale of two old dysfunctional political parties in one city, Washington, D.C.

  • Losing today for the unknown Dec 25, 2013 5:00 AM
    Columnist Donna Brazile: We are losing the present, overlooking things happening right where we live, eat, pray and work.

  • We’ll be better off with ACA than without it Nov 19, 2013 5:00 AM
    Columnist Donna Brazile: President Obama understands why people are frustrated. And now he must take the lead to fix it. And yes, keep his promise and work harder to ensure his policies work to help Americans grow, prosper and stay healthy in the process.

  • Amid chaos, listen to the songs of hope Nov 7, 2013 5:00 AM
    Columnist Donna Brazile: Of course there are problems with Obamacare’s rollout. All beginnings are difficult. But there are governors — governors like Republican John Kasich of Ohio and Democrat Steve Beshear of Kentucky — who recognize that health care can’t wait.

  • Ever so small signs this insanity won’t happen again Oct 20, 2013 5:00 AM
    Columnist Donna Brazile: Let’s hope the insanity — hers and the nation’s — was temporary. After all, when elected officials — in this case, a handful of House Republicans and a few members of the U.S. Senate — have a political breakdown, it drives the people nuts.

  • A ‘people’s contest’ for fair opportunity Aug 9, 2013 5:00 AM
    Columnist Donna Brazile: With the Civil War raging, Abraham Lincoln addressed the U.S. Congress on July 4, 1861, and talked about the stakes involved: “This is essentially a people’s contest." Almost exactly 152 years later, we’re having the same struggle. A “people’s contest” is under way across our land to see that the government provides a fair opportunity for all in bettering their lives. It’s a contest we’re losing.

  • So much about our rights can change in just a week Jul 7, 2013 5:00 AM
    Columnist Donna Brazile: The Supreme Court resolved four blockbuster cases — and each one raised the same fundamental questions. To what extent do minorities share in the “inalienable rights of life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness”? How far does the Equal Protection Clause of the 14th Amendment extend?

  • The poisoning of patriotism Jun 16, 2013 7:50 AM
    A number of libertarians and conservative populists have found data collection by the National Security Agency to be the final confirmation of their worst fears about Barack Obama and modern government. It is an attempt, according to Ron Paul, to “deliberately destroy the Constitution.”

  • Snowden: all-seeing, or myopic? Jun 16, 2013 7:44 AM
    Edward Snowden, the youthful information technician who leaked our nation’s top-secret cyber-spy program, has made his mark on history. I suspect his “moment of fame” will last more than 15 minutes. And after all the debate about what he did, history will have to decide if it’s really a moment of infamy.

  • People who help make America strong May 14, 2013 2:00 AM
    Columnist Donna Brazile: American character. We need people of good character — regardless of politics or profession. I'm proud of Charles Ramsey. Even with his flaws and troubled past, he makes me proud to be an American. Amanda Berry, 6-year-old Jocelyn, Gina DeJesus, Michelle Knight and Charles Ramsey — these are the people America is made of.

  • Obama sails a dangerous strait May 6, 2013 5:00 PM
    Columnist Donna Brazile: Syrian President Bashar Assad's air force has bombed citizens waiting for bread outside bakeries. His army's snipers have picked off children. And Syria may be a portend of things to come: United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees Antonio Guterres recently told a Washington, D.C., audience: "We are unprepared for what is to come. ... The international community has lost its ability to stop conflict. ... The very nature of human conflict is changing."

  • We’re in danger Apr 29, 2013 5:00 AM

  • How the gop learned to stop worrying and love taxes Apr 21, 2013 5:00 AM
    Columnist Donna Brazile: The current $40 billion budget gap among 30 states is an improvement over their red-ink shortfall of $71 billion just two years ago. They can thank Obama's economic policies for that improvement.

  • Compromise for the common good Apr 15, 2013 5:00 AM
    Columnist Donna Brazile: Compromises are no longer the work of moderates, who are becoming harder and harder to find in Congress, but of individuals coming together for common interests and the common good.

  • Burly guards or bipartisanship? Apr 8, 2013 5:00 AM
    Columnist Donna Brazile: The National Rifle Association has finally issued its recommendations in the wake of the Newtown massacre, where 20 children and seven adults were murdered. The 225-page report misses the target by a mile.
