Rahn: When voters have regret

Four years from now, will you regret having voted for the person you chose this year for president? In decision theory, there is a concept called “regret,” which is the emotion experienced when realizing that an alternative course of action would have likely resulted in a more favorable outcome.

Morici: Growing the economy, instead of bickering

The most disturbing aspect of the presidential campaign is neither major party nominee has adequately focused on rekindling economic growth.

Krauthammer: The bribery standard

The foundation is a massive family enterprise disguised as a charity, an opaque and elaborate mechanism for sucking money from the rich and the tyrannous to be channeled to Clinton Inc.

Keillor: What will Bill be wearing?

Everybody is wondering if white men will vote for Hillary and, speaking as a white man, I say it depends a lot on Bill. If he looks happy on the sidelines gazing up at her with dewy-eyed admiration, then yes.

Scarborough: The vapidity of America’s foreign policy debate

Though hard to believe, the current crop of candidates running for president may prove to be even worse than George W. Bush and Barack Obama.

Krauthammer: An air of menace about this campaign

By international and historical standards, political violence is exceedingly rare in the United States. In 2016, it may not remain so.

Winkler: It’s time to stop bashing Wall Street

There’s a perverse competition among some presidential candidates: Who can most loudly blame Wall Street for the problems of Main Street. They’ve got it wrong.

The Federal Reserve should delay further raising interest rates until after the major party presidential nominees emerge this summer.

In November 1968 a young Rhodes Scholar by the name of Bill Clinton was “mad as hell,” as he told a friend back in Arkansas in a letter penned from Oxford University.

Bloomberg: Clinton takes on Wall Street?

The industry that helped enrich Hillary Clinton also plays a central role in the economy – helping families afford homes, entrepreneurs launch small businesses, governments build schools, and seniors retire comfortably.

Will: Michael Bloomberg: an echo, not a choice

Michael Bloomberg’s epiphany about the 2016 presidential proceedings is that what is missing is a second bossy, big-government billionaire from Manhattan’s East Side – another candidate with malleable party loyalties.
