What does leadership look like
By Joe Garofoli Updated 12:05 pm PDT, Thursday, April 4, 2019 There’s one question that dogs Rep. Eric Swalwell’s widely expected, perhaps soon-to-be announced run for president: What is he thinking? He’s got a safe East Bay congressional seat, probably for life if he wants it. He’s making a national impression through his presence on two major House committees and his ubiquity on cable TV news shows. Speaker Nancy Pelosi likes him enough to put him on a leadership track. So why ditch that to chase the longest of long shots? The 38-year-old Dublin Democrat has no discernible national fundraising base, little name recognition outside of cable TV junkies and people who know where the Livermore outlet malls are, and he’s a straight white guy from the suburbs running in the most diverse field of candidates in history. He doesn’t even have the late 30s white guy lane locked up — 37-year-old Pete Buttigieg has a huge jump on him there, … [Read more...] about Eric Swalwell looks like he’s running for president.

That the Seattle SuperSonics were lousy, having their worst season in 20 years, was only the beginning. Though the Sonics were a storied N.B.A. franchise, with a league championship in 1979, attendance was down at their Seattle arena along with points scored and revenues earned. As the team’s lead owner, Mr. Schultz was facing unrest from fans and partners alike. At the same time, Starbucks, the coffee company he had built into a global giant, was about to hit a bad patch, too, as the first ripples of the Great Recession began to rise into a flood tide. You don’t have to be a basketball … [Read more...] about For Clues to Howard Schultz’s Leadership, Look Beyond Starbucks
World Donald Trump Kim Jong Un International Affairs President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un are meeting in Vietnam to discuss the denuclearization of the Korean peninsula, and many observers are waiting to find out what the two leaders will agree on. The White House announced Wednesday that Trump and Kim will sign a joint agreement at the end of their two-day meeting on Thursday, but little is known about what will be included in the document. Following their last meeting in Singapore in June, the two leaders signed a declaration stating their intention to denuclearize the Korean peninsula and forge stronger ties. But analysts were quick to point out that both countries have very different ideas of what denuclearization will look like. Still, some analysts say that this meeting could yield more concrete results than the previous one. What North Korea wants from the meeting is clear, experts say. “The deal I see is a four-part deal that would be historic if it … [Read more...] about What Does Kim Jong Un Want From Donald Trump and What Will the U.S. President Make Him Give Up to Get It?
Here are a few of the people Minnesotans voted to send to Congress next year: a Muslim-American woman and Somali refugee who is a national left-wing icon, an arch-conservative rural Minnesotan who ran on being a “reinforcement” for President Donald Trump in D.C., and a millionaire entrepreneur who detests political labels and vowed to join a caucus of centrists if elected. Voters across the country made at least one thing clear in this year’s midterm elections: that a majority of them are ready for Democratic control of the U.S. House of Representatives after two years of the Trump administration and eight years of Republican control of the chamber. But the candidates who Americans selected to populate the new Democratic majority — which will number at least 227 members to Republicans’ 198 — are hardly all the same kind of Democrat. In the next Congress, Democratic leadership must work to reconcile an upstart, progressive vanguard of the party, … [Read more...] about The same state — and party — sent Rep. Collin Peterson and Rep-elect Ilhan Omar to Congress. What does that mean for Democrats’ agenda?
