Want to govern effectively, Mr. Trump?

Lee H. Hamilton - Guest Column
 As Mario Cuomo said, politicians campaign in poetry but have to govern in prose. Now we have a president-elect who campaigned in tweets...but still will have to govern in prose.

An exercise of Democracy

John L. Micek - Syndicated Columnist
Meet Megan Hicks, sore loser.
The Philadelphian was camped on a bench in the Pennsylvania state Capitol rotunda in Harrisburg on Monday morning, waiting, like the rest of us, for the Keystone State’s presidential electors to go through a hugely symbolic, yet no less hugely important, exercise.

Republicans are the masters of not ‘getting over’ things

Will Durst - Syndicated Columnist
And now a few choice words for all Republicans advising Democrats to “stop whining about the election and get over it.” Oh, really. Get over losing a presidential election to a high-strung petulant flake soon to be in possession of the nuclear codes?
