Europe And New Leaders Are Ukraine's Only Salvation (Patriots Not Politicians)

by Paul R. Gregoryvia Forbes.com
Thursday, February 27, 2014

Ukraine’s path is clear for those wishing it success. It must concentrate on joining the EU as quickly as the accession process allows. For its part, the EU must provide all possible assistance to expedite Ukraine’s accession. Mobilizing EU members to this task will not be easy given the consensus nature of decision making. The EU should not waste its time trying to draw in Russia as a cooperative partner. Putin clearly has another agenda.

Can We --- And Do We Want To --- Avoid Gridlock?

with Morris P. Fiorinavia Washington Examiner
Wednesday, February 26, 2014

Pundits love to lament gridlock and seek solutions. I’m not so sure gridlock is so bad, and the solutions I have seen strike me as worse. One reason is put forward with typical cogency by Stanford and Hoover Institution political scientist Morris Fiorina in the Washington Post's Monkey Cage blog. “But what is a majority?” he asks, and points out that there is no conceivable majority on abortion for either the Republican Party position (illegal in all cases) or the Democratic Party position (legal in just about every conceivable case). On this issue a victory for either party would be opposed by most voters. That argument is weakened a bit by the fact that most -- or at least many candidates -- do not take absolutist positions on abortion (Mainstream media reporters love to pin down the few Republicans who would prohibit abortion in cases of rape and show absolutely zero appetite for exposing the relatively few Democrats who would refuse to outlaw partial-birth abortions). And on some issues you do find all-or-nothing results: Obamacare may be one example. But Fiorina's larger point remains.
