2008-06-09 01:15:00
In “The Things They Carried,” a short story about a platoon of soldiers during the Vietnam War, author Tim O’Brien describes in detail what the soldiers carry as they plod through the war.

Why Clinton Lost: Change and the Bush legacy
2008-06-09 01:14:00
Hitting the “Smite” button on the whole Bush legacy As Hunter has pointed out, Hillary Clinton lost the nomination for a variety of reasons and in a variety of ways, some of them seemingly counter-intuitive.

Why Clinton Lost
2008-06-09 01:14:00
