The late Sen. Daniel Patrick Moynihan famously remarked that, "The central conservative truth is that it is culture, not politics, that determines the success of a society. The central liberal truth is that politics can change a culture and save it from itself. " I've always liked that quote, but I think it misleads. That two plus two equals four is not a conservative truth or a liberal truth. It's simply the truth. (Moynihan himself recognized this when he even more famously said that people are entitled to their own opinions but not their own facts.)

WASHINGTON -- For Daniel Patrick Moynihan, a star in the Washington galaxy for three decades, these are strange and troubling times.Widely regarded as the foremost congressional expert on welfare, Senator Moynihan has seemed disengaged, almost isolated, as newly dominant Republicans prepare to make major changes in the nation's support system for the poor.True, the New York Democrat has criticized the GOP plan. He has his own proposal and is scheduled to lead the Democratic opposition during the floor debate, which has been delayed by squabbling among Republicans.

CHARLOTTE, N.C. - Bank of America's board of directors has chosen consumer banking chief Brian Moynihan to replace Ken Lewis as CEO of the nation's biggest bank on Jan. 1. Their pick of an internal candidate on Wednesday followed a months-long search and unsuccessful attempts to hire a star industry executive for the top job. The negotiations were complicated by pay restrictions imposed by government pay czar Kenneth Feinberg before the bank repaid $45...

WASHINGTON -- There may be sound reasons for not removing President Clinton, but Sen. Pat Moynihan's reason is not among them. Indeed, Mr. Moynihan's enunciation of it becomes a reason for removing Mr. Clinton. Otherwise, retaining Mr. Clinton may seem to ratify Mr. Moynihan's reasoning, which is unjust to the nation.Identifying Mr. Moynihan as the Senate's pre-eminent intellectual akin to identifying Iowa's tallest mountain -- faint praise for the finest senator of his generation.When Mr. Moynihan leaves the Senate in 2000, public life will lose (in the words of Michael Barone, author of "The Almanac of American Politics")

WASHINGTON -- Senate Finance Committee Chairman Daniel P. Moynihan blasted the Clinton White House yesterday for failing to nominate a commissioner to lead the Social Security Administration, calling the long-running vacancy at the top "a scandal."It was by far the strongest criticism yet from the New York Democrat, who began publicly chastising the Clinton administration over the delay more than two months ago."It is a scandal," Mr. Moynihan told administration representatives at a Finance Committee hearing.

WASHINGTON -- Sen. Daniel Patrick Moynihan, D-N.Y., stirred up a virtual hornet's nest last month with a bill to forbid use of federally tax-exempt bonds to finance sports stadiums for private teams.From Nashville to Cleveland, Seattle to Denver, New Orleans to New York and multiple points in between, mayors and councils are readying bond issues to finance close to $7 billion worth of football, basketball, baseball, hockey facilities.The first deal imperiled was a $60 million bond sale by the city of Nashville as part of the tax-free bonding package it is assembling to pay for a $292 million state-of-the-art stadium to lure the Oilers football team from Houston.

WASHINGTON -- Sen. Daniel Patrick Moynihan moved yesterday to reshape the national debate on Social Security by offering a comprehensive proposal to cut payroll taxes, reduce the annual cost-of-living adjustment and encourage workers to establish personal savings accounts for retirement.Moynihan, a New York Democrat who is respected by members of both parties as an expert on social policy, said it is imperative that defenders of Social Security propose changes in the program, rather than just resist the proposals of conservatives hTC who want to turn it into a vehicle for investing in stocks and bonds.

WASHINGTON -- After four months, the Clinton administration still hasn't nominated a Social Security commissioner, and Sen. Daniel Patrick Moynihan is growing annoyed -- so annoyed that he may be holding up some administration appointments to the Health and Human Services Department.The New York Democrat, chairman of the Senate Finance Committee, which has oversight of Social Security, apparently will find his patience tested a while longer: There's no commissioner nominee in sight.A number of government officials believe Mr. Moynihan is delaying confirmation hearings on eight high-level nominees to HHS, which includes the Woodlawn-based Social Security Administration.

In late 1984, I had just returned to New York, the town of my birth, to be editorial page editor of the New York Daily News, at that time the largest circulation newspaper in the United States. One of the first people to call me was Daniel Patrick Moynihan, who with better recall than I could claim, recollected our first meeting, during the last months of the Kennedy administration, when he was assistant secretary of labor and I was a neophyte correspondent covering those less than sought after beats -- Labor, Commerce, Treasury, Agriculture and the like.

THE ALMANAC of American Politics once described former Sen. Daniel Patrick Moynihan, who died Wednesday at 76, as America's best thinker among politicians since Lincoln and its best politician among thinkers since Jefferson. We will not see his like anytime soon. Pat Moynihan was a unique amalgam of politico and scholar, of policy-maker and analyst, of practitioner and theorist. The academic Moynihan authored 18 books on sociology, political science and public policy, several of them hugely influential.

WASHINGTON - To those who came to know him along the way, what made Pat Moynihan such a special figure in American public life was less the distinction of his career than the enormous pleasure he drew from it. Whether arguing foreign policy or welfare reform or highway design, he enjoyed himself immensely. He saw politics as a way to achieve great purposes, not just the self-aggrandizement so obviously prized by so many men and women who achieve high office. In his four terms in the Senate and the staggering list of appointive posts he held under four presidents, Pat loved the game.

PLAYER OF THE YEAR Tara Stradling The Class 2A state champion Gladiators' unbeaten machine revolved around their versatile 5-foot-9 junior setter. Stradling ran the show as Glenelg went 20-0 to win its first state volleyball title since 1995 and its first Howard County championship. Stradling is also the first non-senior to win Player of the Year in at least 15 years. Stradling had 467 assists, served 92 percent, was second on the team in aces (42), had 36 kills and 107 digs. A two-time All-Howard County and three-year varsity setter, Stradling, whose attack jump is 8 feet 9, orchestrated the team's multi-attack with deceptive and balanced distribution, utilizing a deep front line.

WASHINGTON -- Demanding action to stop the country's epidemic of violence, a powerful Senate chairman declared yesterday that his panel would make handgun control an integral part of health care reform by drastically increasing the tax on bullets.Finance Committee Chairman Daniel Patrick Moynihan said the panel would build into health reform legislation such a huge increase in ammunition taxes that the most destructive types of bullets would effectively be taxed "out of existence."The New York Democrat introduced a measure yesterday -- which he would incorporate into a health care reform bill later on -- that would impose a 100-fold increase in the tax on certain bullets and a 50 percent tax on all other handgun ammunition, with the exception of .22 caliber rimfire bullets used in target shooting.

Daniel Patrick Moynihan, the Cyrano de Bergerac of American politics, is out with his umpteenth book. His white plume still blazes. He defeats masses of convectional wisdom. (Convectional? Webster's Collegiate, Fifth Edition, defines "convection" as "transfer of heat ... by moving masses of matter, as in currents in gasses or liquids caused by differences in density..." That is: hot air, trendy certitude.)The book is "Miles to Go: A Personal History of Social Policy" (Harvard University Press.

I have been a newspaper reporter, editor, columnist, editorial page editor and critic since John F. Kennedy was president. I have interviewed and otherwise covered eight U.S. presidents, including one, Harry S Truman, after his time in office. During those years, I've met six men who I believe had the qualities of character, principle, energy and ambition that could make them great presidents. Four had that job. Two did not. I will leave the other names for other occasions, but one of the latter was Daniel Patrick Moynihan.
