A good night for Bush and Rubio, if that's possible

(Paul Mirengoff) In an earlier post, I wrote at length about what I thought was the big moment of tonight's debate — Donald Trump's attack on George W. Bush. I'll now offer my overall impression of how the various candidates did. I thought Jeb Bush and Marco Rubio had the best debates. Jeb went toe-to-toe with Trump and was considerably more forceful than in their previous encounters, especially the early ones. Bush

What kind of Supreme Court nominee will Obama select?

(Paul Mirengoff) I think that President Obama's nominee to replace Justice Scalia will be dead on arrival at the Senate, regardless of whom Obama selects. I suspect that Obama will reach the same conclusion. If so, Obama will select the person whose rejection will provide Democrats with the most political ammunition. Most likely, this means Obama will select an African-American female. That way, when the Senate refuses even to bring the nomination
