    President Obama said the U.S. commitment to Israel's security "must not waver" and that the world must unite against Iran's nuclear ambitions.

  • Dreaming of a wave election

    By Marty Kaplan

    September 7, 2012 | 9:25 am

    What just happened in American politics is not just that Charlotte mopped the floor with Tampa.  It’s that Democrats connected with the country beyond their wildest dreams.

    Here’s my fantasy:  Coming out of their convention, Democrats will realize that their message sings. 


  • Democrats return to the economy after Jerusalem detour

    September 7, 2012 | 8:37 am

    It was the nuts-and-bolts convention that nearly broke down over the most ethereal of issues: Jerusalem and God.

  • Don Miller and Barack Obama exchange emails

    By Brad A. Greenberg

    August 28, 2008 | 5:51 pm

    Donald Miller, the “Blue Like Jazz” author who replaced Cameron Strang in the youngish, hip evangelical prayer slot at the Democrat National Convention, has on his new blog a funny “exchange” of e-mails between he and Barack Obama.
