One doesn't normally think of Bob Dole, John McCain, and Mitt Romney when hearing Hillary Clinton's name. Like these one-time GOP nominees, many people believe that Clinton deserves the presidency because of her decades of experience. However, she already lost the nomination in 2008, so we know that her future in the Oval Office isn't set in stone. Although Clinton is impressive in many respects, she might ...

Conservatives in all corners of the globe must have felt their hearts sing, if only for a moment, when the Financial Times ran a piece entitled "Piketty findings undercut by errors." Sadly for them, the FT's claims proved untrue. But if you think that put an end to the accusations against the French economist and his findings on inequality, you don't know today's conservatives.
