A National Holiday To Honor America's Immigrants Our national holidays commemorate the birth of our nation, and honor our veterans, presidents, and great civilian leaders such as Martin Luther King. We honor with a holiday those who served our country and those who died in military service. But there isn't a holiday to honor those who actually built America, our immigrants.

Our American Spirit We Americans have always shared a simple philosophy. "Leave us alone." We make exceptions for important things, but our desire to be left alone is one of our strongest traits.

Goodbye to a Special Mascot It looks like my Alma mater is going to retire its mascot. I remember the first time I saw Chief Illiniwek. On that day a stadium full of people held Chief Illiniwek in a position of honor and respect. A lot has changed since 1967, including our tolerance and respect for each other.

Why Democrats should be trusted to control Congress President Bush said Saturday Democrats should not be trusted to control Congress because they have no idea how to win in Iraq. President Bush is wrong. Democrats should be trusted to control Congress because they recognize the mistakes Republicans refuse to see. The best plan for success starts with recognizing what doesn't work.

How Democrats Can Win When Republicans Don't Self Destruct In the 21st century, Democrats lost three important elections because many voters cannot support a national leadership that appears insensitive to the issue of abortion. Democrats may win this election, but Republicans have shot themselves in the foot this time. Both feet. Maybe all eight feet. On a level field, there is no reason to think this 2006 election would have been any different than the last three.

An Unlikely Lesson From Tokyo Rose House Speaker Dennis Hastert said Democrats who voted against a bill that would establish a military court system to prosecute terror suspects "voted today in favor of more rights for terrorists." But, maybe they were voting to oppose the careless conduct of justice. The pursuit of justice requires a well-laid trail of safeguards and correction points, not just a trial. Ask Tokyo Rose.

What This Election Is About It's not just the war in Iraq. George Bush's traditional territory is terror. But this election is about so much more. It's about choosing leaders to guard the heritage of America, and ones who are mindful of what that actually is. Don't be tricked into thinking it's about what Republican strategists want you to think it's about.

A Lesson From The People of Hungary This is America. We should be giving lessons to the world on democracy. Instead, we are taking lessons from the wonderful citizens of Hungary.

It's Time To Get Back Onto Lincoln's Path So far the 2006 elections are about terrorism and the war in Iraq. But it should be about the kind of America we want. There is a striking difference between what we are now and what is truly in our hearts.

The Next Five Years of Fear The Republicans are using the fear of another 9/11 as a campaign issue five years later. If we had made any real progress under their leadership, they wouldn't need to invoke fear. But they have little or nothing to brag about. The real fear is that five years from now we will have made little more progress under their leadership.
