February 5th 2008 - Today's Columns:

Thomas Sowell : What Kind of "Experience"? - Another well thought-out piece from Tom Sowell.

It would be hard to find two people less trustworthy than the Clintons or with a longer trail of sleaze and slime.

Senator McCain's political record is full of zig-zags summarized in the word "maverick." That is another way of saying that you don't know what he is going to do next, except that it will be in the interests of John McCain.

It would be truly dangerous if McCain really considers himself a military expert, who can therefore ignore the advice of real military experts as President of the United States.

David Limbaugh : Republican Party Can't Afford More Liberal Leaders - A typical Limbaugh article, dead-on right but not terribly insightful. I would add that diluting the brand of Republicans in particular or conservatives in general is counter-productive to the long-term goals of the pary and movement.

Rich Lowry : Republicans for Hillary - I've been trying to square these feelings within myself:
Bill's relationship to Hillary is blissfully straightforward compared with that of Republicans. They hate her, and they love hating her. They have wanted her to lose the nomination for the mere sport of it, and they have wanted her to win because they think she's the weakest potential Democratic nominee.

Kathleen Parker : What If? - I accidentally clicked this link but read the article anyway. It's a pretty interesting way to look at the Presidential contest. What if Obama were a white man? Would Democrats think him experienced enough to be their standard bearer. She goes through each candidate in this manner and it helps to clarify the real issues involved.
