WASHINGTON -- The political calculus on President-elect Bill Clinton's choices for his new government is so simple even a child could do it -- Lloyd Bentsen to reassure the establishment, Leon Panetta to placate the deficit hawks, several women to show Clinton remembers who put him where he is today and so forth.But what may be lacking in the current orgy of analysis is a realistic view of how policy decisions will be made in the new administration. Judging by Clinton's history as governor and as a candidate this year, he is not likely to take a vote among his advisers to settle on a policy direction.

President Barack Obama went to the United Nations this week to rally the world against what he called "the network of death" embodied by the Islamic State and other extremist groups that have captured large parts of Iraq and Syria in recent months. Mr. Obama said that such groups only understand "the language of force" and that confronting their brutality compels the world "to look into the heart of darkness. " But for all the president's soaring rhetoric about the need to defeat ISIS, it's unclear whether he can do that without putting American boots on the ground - something he has repeatedly ruled out - or whether he could survive the political fallout at home from doing so if that eventually became necessary.

State health officials reported Thursday they have confirmed the first case of West Nile Virus in Maryland for the year. The infected adult lives in the suburbs of Washington. The virus has also been detected in a Washington-area horse, and in special mosquito traps placed in Harford, Montgomery, Prince George's and Talbot counties. Officials at the state Department of Health and Mental Hygiene said the human case was not unexpected - there were 16 reported cases last year. But they reminded people to take precautions by avoiding areas where mosquitoes are prevalent, covering their skin with clothes and hats, using insect repellent, and if possible, avoiding outdoor activities during mosquitoes' most active times at dusk and dawn.

WASHINGTON -- George Bush launches himself today back into the heady realm of international statesmanship that once served his image so well but lately appears to have lost its political advantage.Political advisers had hoped this five-day journey to Poland, Finland and Germany -- probably his last overseas trip before the fall elections -- would give a desperately needed boost to Mr. Bush's sinking prospects for a second term.But now they say the president will do well simply to break the string of bad luck that has jinxed each of his foreign trips this year and called into question the diplomatic craftsmanship considered his strongest asset.

WASHINGTON - President Bush gave the order to go to war last night shortly before 7 p.m. Soon after, he retired to the White House residence to have dinner with his wife, having made a decision that could define his presidency and change the United States' role in the world. Bush's order came toward the end of an Oval Office meeting with military advisers that lasted more than 3 1/2 hours, far longer than usual for a president who is sometimes short on patience and demands that advisers be brief and to the point.

UPDATES AT END... Ray Rice's Friday news conference was one of those media events I wanted to give myself some time to think about. Now that I've thought about it for almost 24 hours, I can say without reservation it is one of the worst media PR disasters I have ever seen. And that perhaps says as much about the Ravens and Rice's apparent legion of advisers and handlers as it does the troubled running back himself. It violated almost every rule of how to use a news conference to try to redeem a badly damaged image.

Under intense pressure to do something about the collapsing Iraqi state, President Barack Obama announced that he will send up to 300 special operations forces there to assess the situation and provide training and support to Iraq's armed forces. Meanwhile, he has positioned warships in the area and left open the possibility of air strikes in a battle zone that straddles the Iraq-Syria border. We worry that even this degree of involvement is a mistake. The conflict is transnational and sectarian, with Sunni Muslim groups that had been fighting the murderous Bashar Assad regime in Syria spilling into Iraq to fight the Shiite-dominated forces of President Nouri al-Maliki, whose policies have been oppressive toward the Sunni minority there.

ALBANY, N.Y. - Resistance is emerging among Democratic officials against Caroline Kennedy as she pursues Hillary Clinton's seat in the U.S. Senate, with Gov. David A. Paterson bristling over suggestions that her selection is inevitable, according to his advisers, and other leading Democrats concerned that she is too beholden to Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg. The governor is frustrated and chagrined, the advisers said, because he believes that he extended Kennedy the chance to demonstrate her qualifications but that her operatives have exploited the opportunity to convey a sense that she is all but appointed already.

Anne Arundel Republican county executive candidates Laura Neuman and Steve Schuh traded barbs in a debate this week in Annapolis. Neuman, who was appointed county executive to replace John R. Leopold last year, and Schuh, a two-term state delegate, have been duking it out in the GOP primary for months. Neuman used Monday's debate to attack Schuh for his actions as a state legislator and his campaign tactics. She mentioned multiple times that Schuh voted for the state law that requires Anne Arundel and other jurisdictions to charge a stormwater remediation fee — dubbed a "rain tax" by detractors — to pay for pollution-reduction programs.
