Littwin: In taking on Trump’s shutdown wall, Pelosi decides to build one of her...

It’s another day for Democrats to be thankful that Ed Perlmutter, Jason Crow and the other resisters failed in their bid to take away Nancy Pelosi’s gavel. Nearly four weeks into the shutdown showdown, the...

Littwin: Trump’s shutdown battle cry — praise the Lord and pass the candy

Donald Trump is losing badly in the government shutdown battle, and that scares the hell out of me. I don’t see any viable, face-saving way out of this self-inflicted crisis for Trump, and that...

Littwin: It wasn’t just Polis who made history — it was also Colorado’s voters

It wasn’t just Jared Polis who made history as the first openly gay man to be sworn in as governor of any state.  Most of that history was made by Colorado voters. And by Colorado...

Littwin: Cory Gardner picks the exact right time to go rogue on Trump’s shutdown

Give Cory Gardner credit. Not only did he go rogue — shocking in its own right — he went rogue at just the right moment. I mean, Gardner couldn’t have had any idea that just...

Littwin: The best books I read in 2018. None are about Trump, but somehow...

Michael Bennet

Littwin: Colorado’s not a swing state anymore, but that doesn’t mean we’ll skip 2020...

When the news broke that Michael Bennet was mulling a run for president and even talking to Iowa politicos about the possibility, one thought immediately sprang to mind: What the hell? I mean, I’m not exactly...

Littwin: As Trump sees a glimpse of the future, he definitely doesn’t like the...

I’m not sure what the headline should be from the Oval Office Throwdown (h/t breitbart.com, which actually thinks Trump won the fight). You could go with “Nancy Pelosi saves her job” or “Donald Trump...

Littwin: Findings may be bad for Trump and bad for Cohen, but they’re worse...

The more I think about the latest shocks from the Mueller Russia probe, the more I realize how great a disaster the findings represent. And not just for Individual 1 and his vast array of...
