When Rep. John Kasich, the conservative Ohio Republican, and Rep. Ronald Dellums, the liberal California Democrat, agree on something, the House ought to pay attention. Especially when they are supported by the civilian leadership of the Pentagon as well as the Joint Chiefs of Staff. Not to mention the former Bush administration. The issue they agree on? The Air Force doesn't need 20 more B2 Stealth bombers at $1.5 billion each.Usually attempts to force unwanted weaponry on the military is fueled by legislators from districts where those products are made.

Gov. Chris Christie, beleaguered back in New Jersey and in the national media over the scandal of contrived traffic jams on the George Washington Bridge, unveiled his strategy for putting his 2016 presidential aspirations back on track the other day before the annual Conservative Political Action Conference. As they say in some unsavory Jersey quarters, he clammed up in the hope of making the problem go away. His earlier claim of having been kept in the dark about the plot to make a Democratic mayor pay for failing to endorse his successful re-election only heightened the political heat on him. So Mr. Christie pivoted to preaching to the choir on his conservative bona fides.

Somebody needs to break the news to the Republican candidates looking to unseat President Barack Obama that the conservative tide that swept the nation in 2010 has receded. Denying public employees the right to bargain collectively and calling for strict limits on the reproductive rights of women won't necessarily play well in 2012. At least it didn't on Tuesday, when voters in several telltale states went to the polls for local elections. Most encouraging for Democrats was the overwhelming defeat of Republican Ohio Gov. John Kasich's law limiting the collective bargaining rights of some 350,000 government workers.

Last week we looked at the Democrats' increasingly progressive platform and constituencies, particularly their attendant enthusiasm for large government and ever-higher spending. But what about the other party? Is the GOP ready (and able) to win the next national election, or is it a dinosaur careening toward regional status? Happy you asked, as I have been pondering this question for quite some time. For the optimists, it was less than three years ago wherein a tea party-led, grass-roots surge removed Nancy Pelosi from the House speaker's chair.

WOLFEBORO, N.H. -- With his avuncular smile, his shopworn homilies, his lanky first-baseman gait and his rusticated innocence, he hardly looks the part. But within a year it may be clear: For Republicans seeking the GOP's 2000 presidential nomination, Bob Smith will be the most dangerous man alive.Not because Mr. Smith, the New Hampshire senator who officially entered the nomination fight here last week, has much of a chance to be president. But because he has almost no chance to be president.

WASHINGTON -- President Clinton, in two recent little-noticed speeches, has said the 1993 tax increases he proposed and shepherded through Congress were too high.But in an interpretation that left congressional leaders in both parties flabbergasted, Mr. Clinton blamed Republicans for it."In the first week I showed up in Washington, the leaders of the minority in Congress -- who are now the majority leader and the speaker of the House -- told me that I would not get one [Republican] vote for my budget no matter what I did," Mr. Clinton told a business group in Williamsburg, Va., on Friday night.

Rather than secede from Maryland to form a state that represents only the conservative and libertarian political view points, I invite Scott Strzelczyk and his followers to consider moving to Ohio ( "Conservative group wants liberation for western Maryland," Sept. 10). Since taking power in 2010, Republican Gov. John Kasich and the Republican controlled state house have created exactly what Mr. Strzelczyk longs for. They have steadily cut spending on education, libraries and social services.

When Donald L. Fowler showed up in Towson yesterday to stump for 2nd District congressional candidate Connie Galiazzo DeJuliis, not many local people knew who he was. But her rival, Rep. Robert L. Ehrlich Jr., changed all that.Though the name of Fowler, the Democratic national party co-chairman, isn't exactly a household word, his brief appearance at the old courthouse prompted Republican Ehrlich's harshest attack yet on DeJuliis.In a statement issued several hours before Fowler's appearance, he painted Democrat DeJuliis as a tool of "the nation's labor bosses" and a slave to political action committee money.

DESPITE HAPPY TALK about balancing the budget by 2002, the nation's fiscal outlook remains a lot grimmer than most incumbent politicians want voters to think. Listen to a real deficit hawk, Rep. Christopher Shays, R-Conn.: "I'm fearful that we will see an agreement that allows the president to have a pleasant two years and allows the Congress to get re-elected."Exactly.Although important gaps remain between Democratic and Republican proposals for getting to zero in five years, the real problem is not 2002.

PRESIDENT CLINTON's State of the Union address tonight, and the reception it is likely to receive from Republicans, may usher in an era of political accommodation unlike anything Washington has seen since Dwight Eisenhower, Lyndon Johnson and Sam Rayburn made it their business to get along in the 1950s. If this is so, if the harsh partisanship of the Clinton first term is behind us, chalk it up to the collective wisdom of the American people.Even before voters went to the polls last November to elect a Democratic president and a Republican Congress, they had made it clear that their preference for divided government did not mean they were in favor of deadlock, shutdown and ideological shouting matches.
