It is a line I have used to open speeches on the lecture circuit for years and it never fails to get a laugh: "I'm happy to be here tonight from Washington, D.C., where the only politicians with convictions are in prison."

Demography is destiny, we were told, and it is -- up to a point. But reality can change people's minds, especially those, like all Millennials and most Hispanics, who are relatively young. You can see evidence that this is happening by comparing Obama's percentages among these groups in the 2012...

Saturday was Flag Day, the anniversary of the date in 1777 when the Continental Congress adopted the Stars and Stripes as the official U.S. flag. The Democratic Party marked the occasion on its official Twitter feed with a picture of a child holding a flag. Happy Flag Day!...

"Eric. Freaking. Cantor." That's how Democratic National Committee Communications Director Mo Elleithee emphasized the major upset Tuesday night of House Majority Leader Eric Cantor, R-Va. “I’ve been working in Virginia politics for a long time, but I’ve never seen anything like what...

For President Obama to successfully deliver comprehensive immigration reform, he must convince skeptical Republicans he is committed to border security while not alienating progressives disillusioned by the record number of deportations under his watch. Soon-to-be White House press secretary...

In a recent op-ed, political Svengali Karl Rove correctly noted that history is against the same party winning the presidency three terms in a row. In fact, George H.W. Bush's win in 1988 is the only example in the last 60 years. Rove used this factoid to make the case against Hillary Clinton...

Last week I set out a 2016 nightmare scenario for Republicans -- not one that seems likely, but one that can be extrapolated from current polling. In that spirit, let me set out a 2016 nightmare scenario for Democrats — again, not likely but a plausible extrapolation. “When a president is...
