My original intent was to title this installment The Miscellaneous because today’s three (Julian Castro, Eric Holder and Terry McAuliffe) possible candidates defied categorization into any of the other groups. Then I discovered a common denominator: They all come from a specific power player/wing of the Democratic Party and could very well be a surrogate of a past first family. Let’s explore.

Too many articles of late consist of a list of negative observations and complaints about the Trump administration in a futile effort to catch up. It’s like having a continuous conversation with my readers. Today is no different. Let’s explore. Continue reading A Continuing Conversation
One of the many political parlor games of late is speculating on why Sean Hannity would have used the legal services of Michael Cohen. Cohen is far from one of New York City’s let alone the nation’s top legal minds. In fact the conventional wisdom is that you only retain Cohen if you want to make a mistress problems disappear. That does not fit Hannity’s reputation. He is not known to cheat on his wife nor are there any credible rumors of sexual harassment in his past.

Could it be possible that he was mainly telling the truth when he said his conversations with Cohen mostly pertained to real estate? CNN and Paul Begala may have shed some light on that Monday night.

Continue reading What’s In The Cabinet?
It is late Thursday morning as I write this article. You can’t possibly read it until early Sunday morning. I doubt the situation in Texas and Louisiana will be completely under control by Sunday. Yet on Tuesday President Trump visited Texas purportedly to tour the damage Hurricane Harvey had inflicted on the Lone Star State and bring aid with him. Instead he turned it into an infomercial to sell a hat. The constraints of time and space will not allow me to review everything he did wrong. Nonetheless I invite you along to explore with me.
