How do you talk honestly about the “The Man from Hope” when your bumper sticker says “I’m With Her”? That dilemma is best represented by a name from the Clintons’ early days as a rising political couple in Arkansas: Juanita Broaddrick. Broaddrick claims Bill Clinton raped her in 1978 when he was the Attorney General of Arkansas. He was never charged, and no one knew about her story until the 1990s, when Clinton was impeached. But what if her story had come out now? Would she have been taken more seriously by the news media and by liberals?

Why is Trump so behind on filling staff jobs, establishing concrete policies? Yesterday Donald Trump signed a “decision memo” to revamp the air traffic control system. But there was little legislative detail in the plan. There’s not much to other splashy announcements from the White House, including tax cuts and the arms deal with Saudi Arabia. And hundreds of positions are unfilled in federal agencies.
