Huntsman may be hard-pressed to gain traction in S.C.

Potential presidential contender Jon Huntsman, known as a Harley Davidson enthusiast in his home state of Utah, may soon hit the road as an official candidate for the Republican Party, but he'll need more than a shiny motorcycle helmet and a leather jacket to electrify voters in South Carolina.

What John Edwards already has lost

Hard cases made bad law, an old legal saying goes. So, I suppose, do sad cases. The sad case of John Edwards could lead to sadder law.

Constitutional controversy

The General Assembly will be back at the Statehouse tomorrow to continue work on items that were included in the concurrent resolution extending the session. These items are the budget, gubernatorial vetoes, conference and free conference reports, redistricting, and appointments.

Time has come for new rec center

For years, elected officials and residents have wished for an alternative to Rhame Arena, which has become a shell of what it once was. For years, we have envisioned an active, vibrant recreation center that can become a haven for our youth, an asset for our elderly and a shining light for our city. For years, we have heard much talk but seen little action.

Don't call me 'ma'am'

The danger in 140 characters

Online to be 2012 campaign battlefield

Presidential candidates had it easy in the pre-Internet age. Campaigns considered in the increasingly distant past didn't have to worry about Internet fundraising, emailing supporters, or trying to stay up to date and compete with their opponents online. They didn't even have to create a website, a move that every candidate must now do in order to win an election -- unless you're Alvin Greene running for a nomination in a South Carolina U.S. Senate campaign.

Not lost, just seeing the sights

In 1964, the World's Fair was in New York City. I was 6 years old and went with my parents and older sister to the fair. New York City seemed like a different world to a little boy from Dexter, Mo., but it was all good. We rode on subway trains, we had cheeseburgers in a diner where the staff had funny accents and rode the Staten Island Ferry and saw the Statue of Liberty.

The hand that rocks the ballot box

In their denouncements of the Supreme Court's Hobby Lobby ruling, Hillary Clinton and other Democrats have been accused of pandering to single women -- the so-called "Beyoncé voter" demographic, as one Fox News commentator sniggered.

S.C., immigration and ‘Us vs. Them’

First things first: every nation must secure and control its borders. This is not political rhetoric or an ideological judgment but a simple geo-political fact.
