Obama interrupts Hoeven's turkey pardoning
BISMARCK -- The fate of a 19-week-old turkey was left hanging in the balance Tuesday when Gov. John Hoeven had to leave his annual turkey pardon to take a phone call from President Barack Obama. Ironically, Hoeven had just talked about building the suspense for the pardon. "At...

The shattering of McChrystal
In one fundamental way, Gen. Stanley McChrystal never was Gen. Douglas MacArthur. But in another, he absolutely was. And with the lives of thousands of U.S. and NATO troops dependent on his judgment, that is why McChrystal, although an intellectually brilliant general, has just...

Obama and oil rig management
It has several variations, but there's an old military adage that goes roughly, "When in trouble, when in doubt, run around in circles, jump and shout." A Navy officer explained that just the appearance of energetic activity might buy you enough time to think up a real solution. President...

Great orator not necessarily great communicator
What with the Tea Party all the rage these days and angry voters seeming like the new norm, even Washington is anti-Washington. Incumbents are running scared (except for those too scared to run). And all Washington Insiders have urgent new insights (gleaned from a fact-finding drop-by...

Letter: Best wishes to Dorgan and remember to do right thing
I have to admit that the announcement of Sen. Byron Dorgan's decision not to seek re-election came as a complete surprise to me. Despite the reasons he gave for his decision not to run again, I think the real reason is that he saw the handwriting on the wall. He knew that by supporting...
