    Sen. Lindsey Graham is one of the strongest advocates of an American military strike against the Assad regime in Syria. He was unhappy when President Obama decided to seek congressional authorization for an attack, and then unhappy when his fellow lawmakers voiced disapproval of the president's plan. Graham believes the diplomatic path chosen by the administration will lead to a debacle.

    As San Francisco and other Bay Area cities prepare for gay pride celebrations this month, Gov. Jerry Brown issued a proclamation Saturday declaring June 2012 Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender Pride Month.

    As Democrats pursue an uphill battle to recapture City Hall on Tuesday, this year's mayoral campaign has already exposed the long-term fracturing of Democratic power in the city, from splinters in the black and Hispanic vote to defections in liberal bastions like the West Side. Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg's popularity and his $66 million in campaign spending are two pressure points as the campaign winds into its final phase this weekend. Yet it is the permanent structural changes in New York politics - such as term limits, campaign finance reforms and evolving demographics - that are really shaking the once-dominant...

    It's official. There will not be a Republican primary for mayor today. A federal court has refused to hear an expedited appeal from Thomas Ognibene to restore him to the ballot. The Board of Elections threw him off last month after Mayor Michael Bloomberg said Ognibene did not have enough valid signatures on his nominating petitions.

    Shep showed a dead body along the freeway. How low can you go to grandstand? Things are bad in N.O., but he didn't have to show it.
