Lawmakers Weigh Political Risks of Stance on Bailout Plan

BY Sarah Lueck

With leaders in Congress working on a controversial financial-rescue plan, rank-and-file lawmakers face a crucial election-year question: If they back the proposal, will they pay at the polls? Populist outrage has been spilling out across the country from people of all political stripes. Lawmakers say they have received hundreds of calls and emails in recent days, almost uniformly against the idea of giving the government the power to buy billions of dollars in distressed assets to keep the financial system afloat.

It's Judgment Day for McCain

BY Thomas Frank

Last week, Republican presidential candidate John McCain called for a commission to "find out what went wrong" on Wall Street. It was an excellent suggestion: Public inquiries into Wall Street practices served the country well in the 1930s.

Congress's Fingerprint Fine Print

BY John Berlau

Fingerprints have long been considered to be among the most personal of information. Proposals for creating fingerprint databases are usually controversial and often lead to a spirited public debate. Even when a fingerprint registry will likely help fight terrorism or crime, many still fear it will lead to a surveillance state.

California Dreaming

BY Matt Kibbe

The San Andreas Fault separates California from the rest of America, but politicians in the Golden State aren't waiting for the "Big One" to split from the rest of country. Last October, the General Assembly in Sacramento triggered a legislative earthquake by imposing draconian, state-wide limits on carbon dioxide production, the byproduct of human activity and purportedly one of the leading causes of global warming.

A Conservative Statement

At this critical moment in the immigration debate, conservatives need to examine the role we are playing in this great national issue. In many respects, the way we position ourselves on immigration will determine whether we retain the mantle of majority leadership. What side of history do conservatives want to be on? Will we remain a movement that governs -- that offers practical solutions to the problems facing the country?

The Huge Immigrant Tide -- I Have a Plan

BY Bill Owens

My seven years as Colorado governor have seen momentous changes: recession and prosperity, catastrophic forest fires and drought, massive transportation improvements and new state parks, a completely new approach to public education and tax policy. But other more subtle changes have also been taking place. Perhaps the most significant transformation of our state's economy, culture and character is the extraordinary growth in the number of illegal aliens.

Greenspan's Boots

BY Cesar V. Conda

An individual who is destined to influence the livelihood of Americans -- and for a long period of time -- will soon face confirmation before the U.S. Senate. I am not referring to the next Supreme Court justice but to the next chairman of Federal Reserve Board of Governors. The Fed chairman is more than the chief U.S. central banker. He is a major voice on economic public policy matters; a "comforter-in-chief" to global financial markets; and, because of globalization, effectively the key central banker to the world.

Bush Speech Shows U.S. Conservatism Has a New Playbook

BY Alan Murray

I spent Thursday evening on the floor of the Republican convention, and I can report with confidence that the delegates didn't once break into a chant of "OWN-ER-SHIP." They were happy, of course. They would have been happy if George W. Bush had read from the phone book. But when he started discussing his "ownership society," some looked as if they thought he was reading from the phone book.

NADER-KERRY Relations

BY Avery Johnson

Mr. Nader, the Green Party's presidential candidate in 2000, pledged to run as an independent in March and courted endorsements of the Green Party and the Reform Party. The Reform Party endorsed him, but the Green Party instead nominated longtime activist David Cobb. Without a convention of his own, Mr. Nader views the Democratic and Republican gatherings as ways to attract much-needed attention to his campaign. During the Democratic Convention, he expects to place an opinion piece in the Boston Globe on withdrawing from Iraq and other issues that Democrats won't discuss at the convention. He will also appear on a major talk show, says Nader spokesman Kevin Zeese. "We're still hoping for 'Good Morning America,' " Mr. Nader says.

Media's Malpractice in Coverage of ImClone

BY Matt Kibbe

The timing of your June 3 editorial "Erbitux and the Press" was wonderful, running exactly one year from the day my surgeon declared my body cancer-free. During the winter of 2002 I had the unique experience of watching the press commit mass journalistic malpractice on ImClone as I watched television and read newspapers while lying on my hospital bed undergoing chemotherapy. Regardless of whom Martha Stewart talked to before she sold, the real crime was the lost potential and lost lives caused by the FDA's bureaucratic delays of a cancer treatment with real promise. But no serious reporter, save those at the Journal's editorial page, even thought to ask the right questions.
