Opinion: For 2020, Democrats need to look forward
 John Kerry has been a superb public servant, beginning with his heroic service in Vietnam and extending through a 28-year career in the Senate and a productive four-year stint as secretary of state. He is as qualified as anyone in U.S. history to serve as president of the United States. Yet, John Kerry should not run for president in 2020...

 Donald Trump and his allies turned the 2018 midterms into a de facto referendum on his anti-immigrant “caravan” paranoia and his obsession with a border wall.

Opinion: ‘Everybody knew’ about Russian contacts, lies Trump
 Over and over in the 2016 campaign, Donald Trump denied any contacts with Russia or Russians. “I have nothing to do with Russia,” he said. “I have no relationship with Russia whatsoever.” Trump denied it during the primaries; he denied it into the general election. He denied it in interviews, in debates, in speeches...

Opinion: Finally, some real-life election fraud

Posted: 9 days ago

For years, Republicans have warned about widespread voting-fraud allegedly swaying election outcomes. The claim has become a conservative obsession, with President Trump even alleging that up to five million illegal immigrants voted in the 2016 elections, just enough to account for his loss in the popular vote. “People get in line that...

And by honor, I don’t mean the type of honor that accrues to a person just by virtue of rising to the presidency, because not all who achieve that post are people of honor.

Opinion: Two years of bluster wear thin for Trump
 As Donald Trump tells it, he got “very tough” in a recent conversation with the head of General Motors about the layoff of some 14,000 people and the closure of four U.S. auto plants: “You’re playing around with the wrong person ….,” Trump claims to have warned CEO Mary Barra. “And they better damn...

 In an interview this week with the Daily Caller, President Trump was asked who he might nominate to replace Jeff Sessions as attorney general.

Opinion: An end and a beginning

12:53 AM Friday, Nov. 16, 2018

After more than 40 years in daily newspapers and 28 years at the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, it’s time to go.  The decision doesn’t come easy.  Writing for newspapers has been my goal since childhood and has been my calling all of my adult life.
