A Deal with the Devil

On one side – five battle-hardened terrorists, men who live for killing Americans and returning the Taliban to power.

When pollsters put that question to military veterans, 68% said President Obama made the…

Carter, Take Two. Or is it Nixon?

You know things are tough for President Obama when some his biggest fans start taking shots at their guy.

What’s Up, Docs?

In its first episode on AMC, the hit series "Mad Men" was set in early 1960; now, as the show nears an end, Don Draper and his pals are in 1969. That was a decade during which America went from Ike to Nixon, from chimps in space to men on the moon, from The Andy…
