    When Meriwether Lewis and William Clark set out on their legendary journey across the newly acquired lands of the Louisiana Purchase, they didn’t know what discoveries lay ahead. One was the grizzly bear, bigger and more fearsome than any bears they had seen before. In his journal, Clark told of an encounter with a “terrible looking animal, which we found very hard to kill.”

    WASHINGTON — When Barack Obama moves 2 miles from 1600 Pennsylvania Ave. to 2446 Belmont Road in Washington’s Kalorama neighborhood, he will live half a mile from 2340 S St., where Woodrow Wilson spent his three post-presidential years. Wilson’s embittering foreign policy failure was the Senate’s rejection of the U.S. participation in the embodiment of Wilsonian aspirations, the League of Nations. Obama leaves office serene because “almost every country on Earth sees America as stronger and more respected today than they did eight years ago.”

    The 115th Congress began its work Tuesday, less than three weeks in advance of the inauguration of Donald Trump on Jan. 20. Republicans have a 52-seat majority in the Senate, over the 46 Democrats and two independents who generally caucus with them. Republicans hold a larger majority in the House of Representatives, with 241 seats, to 194 Democrats. Thus, with the White House in GOP hands, the Republicans will stand in a strong position to be able to make changes and to put forward a coherent agenda for the future.

    Ebola, the disease that caused an international scare two years ago, might be on the ropes. A recent study led by the World Health Organization showed a new vaccine to be “highly effective” against the fatal disease, proving even the most stubborn public health problems can be solved when the world’s best minds work together.

    The U.S. Department of Transportation is proposing to require new cars to communicate with one another. Such communication is a great idea. But that doesn’t mean the federal government should mandate it or that it will prevent all accidents.

    WASHINGTON — Any summation of Barack Obama’s impact on domestic policy and politics should begin with this: In 2008, he assured supporters, “We are the ones we’ve been waiting for. We are the change that we seek.” Soon, he will be replaced by someone who says, “I alone can fix it.” So, Americans have paid Obama the compliment of choosing continuity, if only in presidential narcissism.
