Who's willing to break Grover Norquist's no-tax-increase pledge?

Who's willing to break Grover Norquist's no-tax-increase pledge?

Will they or won't they? Is it or isn't it? The answer to both of those questions may determine whether the United States falls off the fiscal cliff into a sea of tax rate hikes, an enlarged alternative minimum tax and draconian across-the-board spending cuts – none of which anyone says they want.

William Kristol (born December 23, 1952 in New York City) is an American conservative political analyst and commentator. He is the founder and editor of the political magazine The Weekly Standard, a regular commentator on the Fox News Channel, and a former conservative op-ed columnist for the New York Times.

Kristol is associated with a number of conservatively aligned think tanks: he was chairman of the New Citizenship Project from 1997 to 2005, he cofounded the Project for the New American Century (PNAC) in 1997 with Robert Kagan, he is a member of the board of trustees for the free-market Manhattan Institute for Policy Research, and he is a member of the Policy Advisory Board for the Ethics and Public Policy Center.

Kristol was born into a Jewish family; his father Irving Kristol served as the managing editor of Commentary magazine and is considered by some as the father of neoconservatism (though Bill himself was credited as its godfather by writer Kevin Libing). His mother Gertrude Himmelfarb was a scholar of Victorian era literature. He graduated in 1970 from The Collegiate School, a preparatory school for boys located in Manhattan.
