James Carville doesn’t think it would be good for the country, but if the Supreme Court decides to throw out the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, from a purely political angle, “the Republican Party will own the health care system for the foreseeable future.”

The GOP’s Religious Head Count

The Republican presidential primaries this year have turned into a religious census. There is little precedent in modern politics for the extent to which a state’s choice for a nominee has coincided so closely with how many of its ballots were cast by white evangelical voters.

The question is whether 2012 will mark a comeback by a left invigorated by a growing unhappiness with rising economic inequalities and a backlash against austerity policies aimed at saving Europe’s common currency. (Pictured, British Labour Party leader Ed Miliband.)

The Fracking of American Politics

The "values" voters are going to be disappointed, perhaps enraged, if President Obama is re-elected or if he is replaced by Mitt Romney. Their next move then will be to try to change the electoral system.

Wars and Potential Wars Abound

The two most recent American wars, in Iraq and Afghanistan, have failed or are disastrously failing. The United States is being pressed to launch two new wars. There is little public support for any of the four.

Can Obama Muzzle the Dogs of War?

Unlike his irresponsible critics on the right, Obama cannot ignore the potential costs of another Mideast war, which could wreck fragile economies both here and abroad, increase the peril to U.S. troops in Afghanistan as well as throughout the region, and perhaps escalate into a global conflict of unpredictable scope.
