Nobody feels bad for Hillary Clinton anymore, and nobody's going to really read her new book. Some people might pick it up to have it on their shelves, though.

Republicans can't afford to blow it on healthcare reform, we write in today’s editorial. And it would be a pity if they did because six GOP senators went back on their promises.

Speaking of which, here are the six Republican senators who flip-flopped on Obamacare repeal.

Republicans have spent plenty of time voting on the repeal of Obamacare. One thing they haven’t done much of is sell their ideas for reform to the public.

Everyone is discussing insurance regulation, but there are other aspects of health care reform that could significantly lower costs.

Trump just banned transgender Americans from joining the U.S. Military. Here are the rights and wrongs of his decision.

What did servicemembers think of the Obama-era transgender military policy? We have a poll to tell us.

Also, here's what the public thinks about a transgender military ban.

When it comes to Kid Rock and John James, there’s only one choice for the U.S. Senate. Teddy Roosevelt explains why.

A majority of conservatives support fines or bans against biased media outlets. It’s a terrible, terrible idea that no conservative should ever support. Here’s why.

Trump's attacks on Attorney General Jeff Sessions are ominous and seemingly non-stop -- a strange thing, given Sessions’ loyal support.

A decade ago, it was “a New Direction.” Now it’s “a Better Deal.” The Democratic Party's. Deja Vu all over again -- new name, same old failed policies.

A lot of bogus claims are being spread about the the Senate's proposed Israel Anti-Boycott Act. Here’s the real story of what it would do.

Intolerance of differing ideas is not the way to achieve positive social change. Intolerance only begets negative outcomes.

Rep. Mo Brooks encouraged Jeff Sessions to come back and take his old Senate seat. Funny thing is, Brooks is running for that seat right now against Sessions’ appointed replacement.

Sharp takes:
Killing Obamacare Softly
Maybe It's the Democrats' Ideas That Are the Problem
Democrats and Trump are both behaving irrationally
It's High Noon on the GOP's Promise to 'Repeal and Replace'
