Commentary: In this corner…..

By John Krull TheStatehouseFile.com  INDIANAPOLIS – Most election years, presidential debates are a bit like the soap bubbles children play with. They shimmer for a time and catch the eye.

Commentary: Strange crusade against Clinton Foundation

By John Krull TheStatehouseFile.com  INDIANAPOLIS – Thank goodness the Clinton Foundation didn’t fund or find a cure for cancer. If the foundation had put an end to that scourge, outraged conservatives likely would demand the death penalty for Bill, Hillary, Chelsea and their extended family.

Commentary: Hillary Clinton’s disappearing act

By John Krull TheStatehouseFile.com  INDIANAPOLIS – For a while there, it almost seemed as if we were going to see Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton’s face on the back of a milk carton.
