Democrats Are Making The Same Mistake Politicians Have Made For Decades

by David Davenportvia Washington Examiner
Wednesday, December 12, 2018

It’s such a classic mistake that it’s difficult to understand why politicians keep making it. They win an election and proceed to overplay their so-called mandate, setting themselves up for failure and positioning their opponents for a rebound. Presidents Bill Clinton and George W.

by Peter Berkowitzvia Real Clear Politics
Tuesday, December 11, 2018

A Democratic-controlled House coupled with a fortified Republican Senate majority is likely to exacerbate the rancor and vitriol that have suffused national politics since long before Donald Trump’s theatrical announcement in the summer of 2015 that he was running for president.

Kenan Professor of Government Harvey Mansfield wrote to this magazine in late November to share a story about the belated, posthumous publication of a dissertation he supervised 44 years ago—that of Delba Winthrop, Ph.D. ’74, who later became his wife. She takes up book three of Aristotle's Politics, on the subject of democracy, and the balance of the whole versus the parts, so fundamental to self-governance in a democratic society. A conference honoring the book takes place today at the Hoover Institution in Washington, D.C.
