  • Diversity lost

    By Gina Nahai

    May 1, 2008 | 6:00 pm

    Forgive me for going on about this. I keep promising myself I'll stop being outraged, turn off the radio and stop reading the papers. But if you'll permit me one more question here:
    Whatever happened to the Democrats being the party of tolerance and diversity?
    These days, it's...
  • Voice of reason in a sea of insanity,  Jewish Dodgers, Prager, archaeologists, politicians and peace

    April 24, 2008 | 6:00 pm

    Food Issues

    Rob Eshman's article about food issues is a voice of reason in a sea of insanity ("Food Issues," April 11).

    Much of the meaning behind the holiday is in its simplicity, as Rob indicates. Changing one's diet for seven or eight days obviously extends beyond the seders....
  • Clinton to Iran: We will ‘totally obliterate’ you

    By Brad A. Greenberg

    April 22, 2008 | 11:04 am

    A pair of Silversteins, Richard and Ken, drew my attention this morning to Hillary Clinton’s promise to wipe out Iran if it were to strike Israel with nukes in the near future. Here’s the story from Ha’aretz:

    Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton, facing a crucial primary...

  • Is Hillary God’s choice for prez?

    By Brad A. Greenberg

    April 14, 2008 | 10:41 am

    At the Democratic presidential forum last night, Sen. Hillary Clinton was asked a question quite comical when considering the event’s host (Messiah College in Pennsylvania).

    There was a moment of levity on Sunday night when Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton was asked...

  • Briefs: U.S. House recognizes Jewish refugees from Arab lands,  Woody Allen sues American Apparel

    April 3, 2008 | 6:00 pm

    Woody Allen Sues Over Rabbi Billboard

    Woody Allen is suing a clothing company for advertisements showing the actor dressed as a rabbi. Allen filed a $10 million lawsuit Monday in U.S. District Court in Manhattan against American Apparel Inc. for using an image from one of the...

  • Richardson endorses Obama: Another turning point?

    By Pol Observer

    March 21, 2008 | 4:10 pm

    Today, New Mexico governor Bill Richardson endorsed Barack Obama for president. I’d call this a turning point for sure, if all previous turning points hadn’t simply turned out to be wrong turns that take us who knows where.

    But it certainly changes the chemistry of this race one...

  • I was right!  Now what?

    By Pol Observer

    March 5, 2008 | 8:10 pm

    I was right on the button about Tuesday’s results when I swore that I had absolutely no clue what was going to happen.  But now that it has happened, and Hillary Clinton has had a really big night, we can certainly try to make sense of where things go from here.

    The main story is...

  • ‘Hating Hillary’

    By Brad A. Greenberg

    March 4, 2008 | 3:59 pm

    A Christianity Today editorial now online takes up a phenomenon that could dog Hillary Clinton if she survives as the Democratic nominee—an increasingly unlikely event unless things turn around tonight. The issue is one I’ve mentioned here before: Despite the findings of a recent...

  • LA Times poll: McCain would beat Democrats

    By Brad A. Greenberg

    February 26, 2008 | 6:03 pm

    We already know Hillary Clinton’s campaign has one foot in the grave. But is the Democrat’s overall effort to take back the White House also moribund? Another shocker in a wild presidential election:

    WASHINGTON—After a sometimes bitter primary campaign, presumptive Republican nominee...

  • The Democratic endgame ain’t pretty

    By Pol Observer

    February 25, 2008 | 2:06 pm

    It’s getting painful to watch the endgame of the Democratic nomination.  If Obama wins, I imagine we might date the beginning of the end from the time that Clinton accused Obama of selling “false hope.” 

    Running against hope is, of course, hopeless, as the spouse of the original...

  • Zogby must be wrong: evangelicals like Hillary?

    By Brad A. Greenberg

    February 13, 2008 | 12:06 am

    This can’t be. It just doesn’t jibe with everything we’ve been told: Hillary Clinton is the Democratic favorite among white evangelicals? They split the Christian vote on Super Tuesday, but this Zogby poll from the primaries shows Clinton is way ahead with evangelicals and points to...

  • Clinton and Obama split California Jews, too

    By Brad A. Greenberg

    February 6, 2008 | 11:29 am

    Jews, who made up 5 percent of California’s Democratic vote, split between Hillary Clinton, who got 47 percent, and Barack Obama, who got 49 percent. Clinton once had a significant lead over Obama, but the Illinois senator made a strong run in the past few weeks.

  • Clinton and Obama split religious vote

    By Brad A. Greenberg

    February 6, 2008 | 8:56 am

    It seems the Clinton campaign’s concerns were either premature or a ploy to lower expectations because she won California handily, and for both parties a long fight appears to be in order. I asked last night how religious voters would chose between the two Democratic candidates...

  • Clinton’s hold on California slipping *

    By Brad A. Greenberg

    February 5, 2008 | 5:49 pm

    Polls in more than half of the 24 states holding primaries or caucuses today are still open, but Barack Obama has already surprised the Clinton campaign with a dominant win in Georgia (that’s based on returns from about 10 percent of the precincts.)

    It’s almost inconceivable that...

  • Why I support Hillary

    By Rep. Brad Sherman

    January 31, 2008 | 7:00 pm

    Last year, Senator Clinton voted to label the Iran Revolutionary Guard Corps as a terrorist organization.

    Barack Obama attacked her vote ferociously.

    Hillary stood her ground.

    As a strong Democrat, I was drawn to Senator Clinton's unparalleled and tenacious stands on domestic...

  • Hillary and evangelicals: ‘The Antichrist is here’

    By Brad A. Greenberg

    January 23, 2008 | 4:30 pm

    As you know, Hillary Clinton has been talking a lot about her lifelong commitment to the Methodist church, a part of the Godtalk game that I spoke with Georgetown associate professor Jacques Berlinerblau about today. (He’s got a knew book out called “Thumpin’ It.”)

    “In Hillary’s...

  • Playing a frayed and faded ‘race card’

    By Joe R. Hicks

    January 17, 2008 | 7:00 pm

    Sen. Barack Obama (D-Ill.) is making a truly impressive run for the White House, and in doing so is being considered by many as America's first mainstream "black" candidate -- in other words a "black" candidate not running on a near-exclusive agenda of identity politics.

    In fact,...

  • Israelis keep a close eye on U.S. elections

    By Dina Kraft

    January 17, 2008 | 7:00 pm

    Hillary Clinton is the favorite U.S. presidential candidate at Itzik Nir's tiny juice stand, a veritable neighborhood listening post where opinions pile up as quickly as the signature orange-banana-passion fruit blends are served.

    Customers giggle trying to pronounce Mike Huckabee's...

  • The religious politics for ‘08

    By Brad A. Greenberg

    September 28, 2007 | 10:04 am

    I couldn’t make it to the Religion Newswriters Association’s annual conference this week in San Antonio, but fortunately Jeffrey Weiss of the Dallas Morning News has been blogging the details. I found interesting the political insights he relayed from one of my favorite religion and...

  • Clinton soon to be a Jew?

    By Brad A. Greenberg

    August 1, 2007 | 12:15 pm

    That would be Chelsea Clinton, daughter of former President Bill Clinton and hopeful-future President Hillary Clinton. Her boyfriend, Marc Mezvinsky (son of former Congressman Edward Mezvinsky), is Jewish, and she recently visited his parents’ home for Shabbat dinner.

    The retreat...

  • Hillary Clinton on faith

    By Brad A. Greenberg

    July 10, 2007 | 10:05 am

    This is a gripe I will return to throughout the 2008 presidential election, in which hopefuls already are pandering to Americans’ desire to connect religiously with the commander-in-chief (probably because of this). I personally think it is dangerous to put too much stock in...

  • Bill Clinton and Liel Kolet sing ‘Imagine’

    January 5, 2007 | 11:22 pm

    Only 15 at the time, Israel’s Liel Kolet coaxes Bill Clinton onstage to sing ‘Imagine’ with a Jewish-Arab kids choir at a concert for Shimon Peres’ 85th birthday

  • Everyone’s Jewish—until proven otherwise

    By Charles Krauthammer

    September 28, 2006 | 8:00 pm

    Strange doings in Virginia. George Allen, former governor, one-term senator, son of a famous football coach and in the midst of a heated battle for reelection, has just been outed as a Jew.
    An odd turn of events, given that his having Jewish origins has nothing to do with anything...
  • Paper on ‘Israel Lobby’ Poses Threat

    By Jonathan Rosenblum

    April 27, 2006 | 8:00 pm

    Are we Jews too sensitive to what non-Jews say about us? The haggadah, which we just read on seder night, hints at the answer. The telling of the story of our enslavement in Egypt begins, "The Egyptians [spoke] evil about us" (usually mistranslated as "the Egyptians did evil to us"),...

  • Political Centrism Stirring Up Interest

    By Raphael J. Sonenshein

    December 15, 2005 | 7:00 pm

    Political centrism is in the air these days. Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon, under fire from Likud for the withdrawal from Gaza, and Foreign Minister Shimon Peres, defeated in his bid to remain as leader of Labor, have joined forces to form a new centrist party. Suddenly, the...

  • Libby, Judaism and the Leak Probe

    By Ron Kampeas

    November 10, 2005 | 7:00 pm

    When Joshua Muravchik, perhaps the pre-eminent expert on the interventionist foreign policy that has become known as neo-conservatism, was looking for non-Jewish neo-cons to prove that the movement isn't pervasively Jewish, he naturally included Lewis Libby.

    "Non-Jews figuring...

    Hillary Clinton to Speak on Forgiveness at Temple

    Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton (D-N.Y.) will speak on Yom Kippur, Oct. 13, at Temple of the Arts in Beverly Hills.

    Clinton will deliver a 10-12 minute speech on forgiveness, as part of Rabbi David Baron's "living sermons," which...

  • A Frantic Hour

    By Rob Eshman

    September 8, 2005 | 8:00 pm

    The dumbest question asked by any reporter anywhere in response to Hurricane Katrina came last Monday in Houston.

    Former Presidents Bill Clinton and George H. Bush had just finished announcing a special relief effort -- the Hurricane Katrina Fund -- when someone in the press pool...
