We need new leadership in America. A conversation with paterfamilias John Andrews, former Nixon staffer and president of the Colorado Senate. To what extent is President Obama's rhetoric on law enforcement culpable for police slayings in Dallas and Baton Rouge? Did Obama "set the table" for these tragic events? Meanwhile, we review the selection of Gov. Mike Pence as running mate for Donald Trump -- a "solid gold" decision, says Andrews -- as we chronicle the "last gasps" of the Never Trump movement. Also, we survey the enduring challenges of the Hillary Clinton campaign with regards to basic "messaging." At this point in time, after all of her years in public life, does Hillary even know why she's running for office? Does her motivation stem from a devotion to principle -- or more of a desire for power? Plus, with an eye to recurrent terror in France, we recall the "James Taylor Diplomacy" of the Obama Administration, and suggest the need for an immediate uptick in seriousness to the level of "Hall and Oates."
