"Front Row at the Trump Show"

Human Life or Economic Life?

If President Donald Trump has already made fateful choices in the new coronavirus crisis, wait for what's to come. Trump appears unwilling if not unlikely to wait on the advice of medical professionals before nudging American society back to life. It's as stark and bleak a choice as any president can face: human life or economic life.

"A Wartime President"

Tuesday's races marked big wins for the former vice president, whose delegate lead is now in the realm of being virtually insurmountable. Meanwhile, President Trumps administration looks for solutions as cases of COVID-19 continue to spread across the country and the economy hangs in the balance.

"A Wartime President"

Biden's Blowout

The end is in sight for the Democratic primary campaign. The next move in this race belongs to Sen. Bernie Sanders, and him alone. But it's looking like a quieter close all around -- and not just because public rallies are off for a while and Sanders chose not to speak Tuesday night. A range of factors are pointing toward a cleaner and earlier exit by Sanders than anything the party witnessed in 2016.

Biden's Blowout

And Then There Were Two

This is now a two-way race for the Democratic nomination. Former Vice President Joe Biden's huge Super Tuesday reorders the race but doesn't come close to locking anything down. Sen. Bernie Sanders and the progressive movement now regroup, with an intriguing series of states up next, even as California votes still roll in.

Bloomberg Takes the Stage

Michael Bloomberg gets his very expensive wish in Las Vegas Wednesday night: a Democratic debate where he can draw direct contrasts with his rivals -- Sen. Bernie Sanders in particular. But Bloomberg will have company in making arguments around electability and practicality. And Sanders could have even more company in blasting the billionaire former New York City mayor and his long record running a complicated business and an even more complicated city.

After New Hampshire

Former Vice President Joe Biden didn't stick around in New Hampshire to see how far he fell in the final votes. A clean New Hampshire win by Sen. Bernie Sanders provides little clarity in the race. Former Mayor Pete Buttigieg comes out of the first two states with two more delegates than Sanders, and Sen. Amy Klobuchars surprise finish puts her in renewed contention, too.
