    October 13, 2014 | 12:08 pm

    Is it too early to declare Barack Obama’s presidency a failure?  It seems to be the talk of Washington pundits lately and a new poll showed a clear majority thinks so.

    When Obama came on the scene, I like others, warned that someone who had pretty much done nothing of...

    By Shmuel Rosner

    A week ago we presented here a comparison between two lists of probable 2016 Presidential candidates and our Israel Factor list of desirable 2016 candidates. The idea was simple: both The Fix and Prez16 have lists of "candidates with the best chances" and we have our own list of...

  • Israel Factor: Clinton First, Paul Last on Chance-Desirability Combo

    By Shmuel Rosner

    February 18, 2013 | 9:32 am

    I was looking at two lists of possible 2016 presidential contenders and their probable chances for success. Surely, making such projections at such an early stage is more sport than science (and maybe even more like gambling than an actual sport). But since we at the Israel Factor...

    With Hillary Rodham Clinton's concession on Saturday, the real race begins. In the struggle between Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) and Sen. Barack Obama (D-Ill.), there will be a fierce competition for Jewish support. Seeing potential weakness in Obama's Jewish flank, McCain will work...
  • Why George W. Bush?

    By Dan Cohen

    September 16, 2004 | 8:00 pm

    Considering where he's been, it seemed unlikely that Craig Wyckoff would have been the man inducted on July 12 as president of Valley Outreach Synagogue (VOS).

    The entertainment agent was once so disillusioned with Judaism that he flirted with Eastern religions, until his wife Mary...
