Obama Was on the Ropes, Now Clinton Urged to Get Out of the Ring Last week, it appeared that Reverend Wright had put the kibosh on Barack Obama . Then came the speech about race and Bill Richardson's endorsement . Now pundits are asking when Hillary Clinton will hang up her running shoes.

Are swings in conventional wisdom about political campaigns determined by competition for hits on political websites?
Trump plays scolder-in-chief with NATO allies At the opening of NATO’s dramatic new headquarters in Brussels today, President Trump acknowledged that Article 5 — promising that “an attack on one nation is an attack on all” -- has only been invoked one time: in the aftermath of September 11.
