Nikki Haley speech

South Carolina governor Nikki Haley’s political capital is rising. Her leadership in the wake of the shooting in Charleston has some wondering if she’s now a contender for vice president on the GOP’s 2016 ticket.

It’s not like we didn’t see this coming.

On May 19, 2015, I wrote that Hillary has a Blumenthal Problem – Two of Them:

I knew that Hillary was going to have a Blumenthal problem for her 2016 campaign.

But I expected that the problem would be Max Blumenthal, son of close Clinton advisor...

Today, popular department chain Macy’s announced that it is pulling Donald Trump’s line of menswear from its stores. Progressive activists renewed pressure on the company to adopt a more “inclusive” image following comments Trump made about immigrants.

Another day, another tiny, minuscule, pin-width beam of light shining down on who knew what, when, and how during and in the wake of the 2012 attacks on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi.

Most recently, we saw Sid Blumenthal, having been dragged before a Congressional committee, providing investigators with a batch...

Ah yes, the media and gun control.

Senator Cruz joined PBS host Tavis Smiley Tuesday. Smiley seized the opportunity to peg Sen. Cruz on gun control.

“To me and to others who’ve seen this, it seemed in bad taste, but maybe that’s my assessment,” Smiley said. “We all know what happened...

Donald Trump’s big presidential announcement mostly went over like a lead balloon here at Legal Insurrection. For me, it felt like just another announcement; in terms of political theatre it was huge, but in terms of substance…to be honest, I’m still distracted by all the theatre.

The progressive opposition research machine/PAC thing, American Bridge, is wetting their britches over what might be the absolutely lamest “gotcha” video I’ve ever seen.

American Bridge describes itself as a, “progressive research and communications organization committed to holding Republicans accountable for their words and actions and helping you ascertain when Republican...

The New York Times yesterday featured an article on Hillary Clinton’s electoral strategy for 2016. In short, she apparently is mimicking President Barack Obama’s strategy for his second term.

Instead, she is poised to retrace Barack Obama’s far narrower path to the presidency: a campaign focused more on mobilizing supporters in the...

Hillary Clinton is trying very hard to frame herself as a candidate who can identify with average Americans, but the vast wealth she and her husband have accumulated through giving speeches conflicts with that message.

Philip Bump of the Washington Post recently pointed this out:

George Stephanopoulos issued a formal apology for not disclosing his $75,000 in contributions to the Clinton Foundation.

He calls the contributions a mistake, in hindsight.

ABC News appears to be standing by their man, but what should become of him?
