Goldberg: Democrats’ loss is no win for Hillary Clinton

In the old Soviet Union, Kremlinologists would read the state party newspaper Pravda not so much for the news it contained, but to glean what the commissars wanted readers to believe the commissars were thinking.

Goldberg: Narratives are more powerful than ideas

There is an enormous amount of whining these days about our ideological debates. This gets the problem wrong. Ideological debates are fought over ideas, but politics is more often about competing stories, or, as the eggheads call them, "narratives."

Krauthammer: Barack Obama, our bewildered bystander in chief

Charles Krauthammer: World rallies, yet Obama says ‘Charlie who?’

Last Sunday, at the great Paris rally, the whole world was Charlie. By Tuesday, the veneer of solidarity was exposed as tissue thin.
