Kevin McCarthy on Trump: America doesn't want "retribution" - CBS News

California Republican Kevin McCarthy holds a place in history as the first-ever Speaker of the House to be voted out of that position. Historic, but looking at how his tenure began, hardly a shock. Back in January, it took McCarthy 15 ballots – more than any Speaker dating back before the Civil War – to win the gavel. McCarthy said, “When you go into the Senate, it’s like being in a country club – not a lot of people around. The House is like you walk into a truck stop to have breakfast. But th…

The age-old question: How old is too old for Washington, D.C.? - CB...

The Washington Post’s Dan Balz is considered by many the dean of political reporters. Balz is 77 years old – the same age as former Presidents Trump, Clinton and Bush. He says the spotlight on President Biden’s age (81) is understandable, and nothing new.In 1984, when Ronald Reagan – then 73 – was running for reelection, he playfully used his age as an asset when debating his opponent, 56-year-old Walter Mondale: “I will not make age an issue of this campaign,” Reagan said. “I am not going to ex…

Doris Kearns Goodwin is a rare presence on our national stage – an historian with academic cred and pop-culture cachet. Her work, of course, is serious, but she shares it with joy, and sometimes a laugh, as when she made an entrance on “The Late Show Starring Stephen Colbert” on a litter carried by Lincoln impersonators.“It’s fun when a younger person comes up to you and says, ‘You know, my kids saw you on “The Simpsons”’!” Goodwin said.Goodwin, now 81, is renowned for telling the story of Ameri…

No one is spared Maher’s humor, or as he sees it, truth-telling – not the right (“If you’re gonna turn over your party to a foreign power, at least pick the right one. Russia? Are you kidding? It’s like the Republicans looked over all the companies they could merge with and picked Sears!”), nor the left (”…

Doris Kearns Goodwin on what history may tell Joe Biden - CBS News

By now, you know where things stand: President Biden says he’s all-in. And no one – well, almost no one – can convince him otherwise. Asked by George Stephanopoulos of ABC News last Friday whether, if he were convinced he could not defeat Donald Trump, he would stand down, Mr. Biden replied, “Well, it depends – if the Lord Almighty comes out and tells me that, I might do that!“On Friday he told a cheering crowd in Madison, Wisconsin, “Let me say this as clearly as I can: I’m staying in the race.…
