    2020 prospect Sen. Klobuchar: It's 'difficult to imagine' voting for Trump AG pick

    Minnesota Sen. Amy Klobuchar — a member of the Senate Judiciary Committee and prospective Democratic candidate for president in 2020 — says it is “very difficult to imagine” she will vote to confirm nominee William Barr as attorney general in light of his refusal to commit to releasing special counsel Robert Mueller’s report on the Russia investigation. While saying she still wants to finish reviewing the transcript of this week’s confirmation hearing before making a final decision, she criticized the nominee for his equivocation during this week’s confirmation hearing on two key issues relating to the Russia probe. “He wouldn’t say he would follow the ethics advice of career lawyers in the department when it came to recusal regarding the Russia investigation, and also he didn’t 100 percent commit — not even 80 percent commit — to making the report public,” Klobuchar said.

  • I called George Bush a ‘wimp’ on the cover of Newsweek. Why I was wrong.

    I called George Bush a ‘wimp’ on the cover of Newsweek. Why I was wrong.

    In October 1987, when George H.W. Bush announced his candidacy for the presidency of the United States, Newsweek magazine ran a cover story titled “Fighting the ‘Wimp Factor.’” The article did not quite come out and declare that Bush was a weakling, and it noted that Bush’s own advisers were worried about the “wimp” label. As the 41st president, Bush was anything but a wimp. In 1991, he had the courage to abandon his own “read my lips” vow and instead raise taxes in the cause of restoring fiscal sanity to the federal budget, left badly out of whack by his predecessor, Ronald Reagan.
