Clinton needs a good media grilling
It’s crystal clear that Hillary Clinton stands a very good chance at becoming the next president of the United States. But win or lose, now is the time for her to act like the president she hopes to be.

Democrats, Clinton hoping for a big convention bounce
Last week, halfway through the Republican convention in Cleveland, I wrote that the GOP gathering was so shambolic that it might not give Donald Trump the “bounce” he needed.

Trump proves he’s Russia’s chump
You can’t make this stuff up. No, you wouldn’t want to make this stuff up about a presidential candidate who could wind up running this country.

LGBT inclusion is good for business
Like many of my colleagues in the community, I am pleased to see the unbelievable amount of support being given to passing a non-discrimination ordinance in Butler. Despite that, there is probably still some misunderstanding, so I hope to provide a bit of clarity here.

Half the country may be “with her” but are we “with him”?

Future under Clinton might be dim
Sen. Bernie Sanders said one good thing when he spoke Monday at the Democratic National Convention. It was that the presidential election is not about gossip, fundraising, campaign strategies or polls, all the things that preoccupy news outlets. It is about the kind of future we are going to have.

Here’s one Russian athlete who didn’t cheat
The Summer Olympics in Rio are less than two weeks away, and there’s no shortage of marquee athletes poised to captivate and inspire: American swimmer Michael Phelps, with 18 gold medals on his shelf, competing in his fifth Olympics; the world’s fastest man and four-time gold medalist Usain Bolt of Jamaica, running in what he says is his last Olympics; the unbeatable 4-foot-9-inch U.S.

Clinton grappling over likability
En route to fight one of his many duels, French politician Georges Clemenceau bought a one-way train ticket. Was he pessimistic? “Not at all. I always use my opponent’s return ticket for the trip back.” Some Hillary Clinton advisers, although not that serene, think her victory is probable and can be assured.

Clinton’s free college plan is unrealistic
Hillary Clinton’s proposal for making public higher education not just cheaper but free to most Americans sounds good on paper. A few years after the plan’s implementation, a family that earns as much as $125,000 annually would not have to pay tuition to send a child to a state-sponsored college or university.

Clinton’s 3 big convention challenges
Donald Trump made one part of Hillary Clinton’s job easier last week — by making the braggadocios claim that he alone can cure the nation’s ills, a boast that sounded more like a promise of one-man rule. But Clinton faces three other big challenges at her convention in Philadelphia this week, and they won’t be as easy as painting Trump as a dangerous blowhard.

Echoes of tyrants in Trump’s speech
CLEVELAND — Donald Trump was a man in full Thursday night as he accepted the Republican nomination: Full-throated, full of fury and full of himself: “I am your voice”; “I alone can fix it the system”; “I am the law and order candidate.”

No subtlety, specifics in Trump speech
There wasn’t much subtlety in Donald Trump’s acceptance speech — or much innovation, either. Beforehand, some Republicans ventured that this was their nominee’s biggest opportunity to retool his agenda for the general election and to present a softer, more inclusive, more thoughtful Trump.
