(3) Comments | Posted August 31, 2015 | 2:40 PM

미국 민주당 경선은 '백 투 더 퓨쳐'

(0) Comments | Posted August 26, 2015 | 5:14 PM

2008년 미국 민주당은 당 역사상 가장 젊은 축에 속하는 후보를 지명했고, 그는 민주당 최초의 아프리카 계 미국인 대선 후보였다. 47세 버락 오바마를 선택한 것은 새로운 시대를 의미한다고 모두 생각했다.

그러나 7년이 지난 지금, 2016년 대선을 위한 경선은 신선한 정체성과 새로운 아이디어, 리더, 유권자들을 절실히 필요로 하는 오래된 당을 장악하기 위한...

WASHINGTON -- Sen. Rand Paul's campaign is teetering on the edge, with the once-trendy presidential candidate telling fellow Kentucky Republicans that his chances of winning the 2016 GOP nomination are no better than "1 in 10."

It’s late August 2015. There are already more than 20 people running for president. Only about five of those have a realistic chance of actually winning, and we should not be encouraging anybody else to participate in the race. But here we are, just a group of...

All Is Not Well In Hillaryland

(27) Comments | Posted August 13, 2015 | 4:20 PM

Things are getting weird when even Al Gore is thinking of getting into the Democratic presidential race, which is turning into a last hurrah for the Baby Boomers and their tad-older camp counselors.

도널드 트럼프는 공화당 TV 토론에서 자멸했지만 트럼프주의는 이겼다

(0) Comments | Posted August 10, 2015 | 4:07 PM

도널드 트럼프의 후보 지위가 어떻게 되든 간에 - 그는 8월 6일 밤에 후보로서 실수를 했다 - 공화당 첫 TV 토론이 있은 지금 미국과 세계에게 있어 확실해진 사실이 있다.

트럼프주의는 내년 대선에서 승리할 가능성이 큰 정당을 장악하고 있다.

즉, 2016년에 공화당이 백악관을 차지하게 된다면, 트럼프의 영향력과 트럼프주의의 다음과 같은 면을 전적으로...

Ranking The GOP Race To Overtake You-Know-Who

(0) Comments | Posted August 9, 2015 | 1:48 PM

2016 First to Last is facing an unpleasant fact: that the entertaining, traffic-generating fling with He-Who-Must Not-Be-Named is fading. His junior-high insult humor is getting old fast. We predict that, come January, he’ll be playing golf in sunny Palm Beach, Florida, not shaking gloved hands in Portsmouth,...

Εμφανίστηκε αλαζόνας, εύθικτος, και κακός –αλλά οι τραβηγμένες μεγαλοστομίες του «κερδίζουν» τους Ρεπουμπλικάνους

Κλίβελαντ – Ό,τι κι αν γίνει τελικά με την υποψηφιότητα του Ντόναλντ Τραμπ – ο οποίος πραγματικά γελοιοποιήθηκε στο ντιμπέιτ της 6ης Αυγούστου – τα παρακάτω πρέπει να είναι ξεκάθαρα...

Der Triumph des Trumpismus: Das erstaunliche Erfolgsgeheimnis des Donald Trump

(5) Comments | Posted August 7, 2015 | 3:37 PM

Er trat arrogant, dünnhäutig und beleidigend auf, aber mit seinen stürmischen Äußerungen übernimmt er bei den Republikanern immer mehr das Ruder.

Was auch immer aus Donald Trumps Präsidentschaftskandidatur schließlich wird - und als Kandidat ist er am Donnerstagabend ganz klar ins Straucheln geraten - so sollten Amerika und die Welt...

Quoi qu’il advienne de la candidature de Donald Trump, qui s’est franchement ridiculisé lors du débat organisé jeudi 6 août, les États-Unis et le reste du monde ne pourront pas dire qu’ils n’ont pas été prévenus. Les propos du milliardaire américain séduisent les électeurs d’un parti qui a...

CLEVELAND -- The place, time, format and cast of Thursday night's first 2016 presidential candidate debate raise the central questions in our public life: Has politics become an irreversible self-parody, comprehensible only as cynical comedy?

Or is it still capable of addressing real problems, such as the decline of the...

Comment l'ascension politique de Donald Trump reflète l'évolution de la société américaine

(0) Comments | Posted July 28, 2015 | 2:17 PM

Donald Trump est un personnage hors du commun. Il est grand et sa frange de cheveux mandarine le fait paraître plus grand encore. Il exsude le calme d’un homme qui vient de passer au sauna et qui s’est peut-être offert une manucure. Quand il s’adresse à vous (je...
