Both parties need to wise up

"Don't blame all the things that have happened to us lately on the Republicans," humorist Will Rogers once said. "They're not smart enough to have thought 'em up." That advice still rings true, especially after our recent midterm elections. Both parties need to wise up.

Following Clinton's lead

When Republicans handed Bill Clinton's hat to him in the 1994 election, gaining control of Congress in a GOP landslide, the former Arkansas governor moved deftly to the middle of the political spectrum. It was a spectacular turnaround following his and his wife's failed health care initiatives, and it not only saved his presidency, it made him a model for other elected officials who learned to listen to what voters said and adapt their own policies to the mood of the country.

A GOP not for whites only

What's the most overlooked, underappreciated story from the midterm elections? My nominee would be the surprising new racial and ethnic diversity of Republican congressional and gubernatorial winners -- even if we don't see as much diversity among the party's voters.

Not so transparent

President Obama, who promised the most transparent administration in history, has delivered perhaps the least transparent. Following the trend of other recent presidents, Obama has kept a tight lid on the press, rarely interacting with reporters in a spontaneous fashion and instead relying on the spin of his White House press directors. And it has gotten worse the longer Obama has been in office; one report last week indicated that the administration was denying access on a variety of subjects with increasing regularity. The Associated Press reported, "In category after category -- except for reducing numbers of old requests and a ...
