    Donald Trump’s damage to the Republican Party, although already extensive, has barely begun. Republican quislings will multiply, slinking into support of the most anti-conservative presidential aspirant in their party’s history. These collaborationists will render themselves ineligible to participate in the party’s reconstruction. Ted Cruz’s announcement of his preferred running mate has enhanced the nomination process by giving voters pertinent information. They already know the only important thing about Trump’s choice: His running mate will be unqualified for high office because he or she will think Trump is qualified. Hillary Clinton’s optimal running mate might be Sen. Sherrod Brown of Ohio,...

    George Russell Weller sat in a wheelchair Tuesday, wearing a loosely knotted tie, and looked up at a huge projection of his car after he had driven through an open-air market three years ago, killing 10 people and injuring more than 60. One dead man was draped across the hood while another victim lay under the front wheels. ... But Deputy Dist. Atty. Ann Ambrose said witnesses reported that Weller appeared intent and drove his car through the crowded weekly market along Arizona Avenue at speeds in excess of 60 mph. Ambrose said the case is much more than an...

    TORONTO (AFP) - Bill Clinton hates it, but it is true: He will be 60 on Saturday, and he is often the oldest man in the room. The former baby-boomer-in-chief and 42nd US president admitted at a world AIDS conference here -- at which delegates serenaded him with "Happy Birthday" -- that his approaching milestone filled him with trepidation. "In just a few days, I will be 60 years old. I hate it, but it's true," the snowy-haired veteran of two tumultuous White House terms said.

Cronkite said he is "inclined to think that Karl Rove, the political manager at the White House, who is a very clever man, he probably set up bin Laden to this thing." Interviewer Larry King did not ask Cronkite to elaborate on the provocative election eve accusation. Developing...

    Did anyone see the report earlier today on Fox News when they replayed a March 2002 interview with Fritz Mondale? This is dynamite! He said "my public service career is over"..."I thought about running for the Senate this year if Paul Wellstone stepped down [recall that Wellstone had term-limited himself and then welshed on the pledge], and Joan and I talked about it, and we decided that it's time for new people to step up and lead"..."I do not desire to have any leadership role in the national Democratic Party"....etc. etc. He was VERY emphatic (and also looked VERY old...
