Democratic primary voters, who chose Hillary Clinton because they believed she was the most electable Democrat against Donald Trump, may be in for a rude awakening. They may have picked the least electable Democrat and placed the country and the world in jeopardy...

Trump's Strategy To Make America Safe Again: Talk Loudly And Carry A Small Stick

(0) Comments | Posted July 19, 2016 | 1:18 AM

Republican President Teddy Roosevelt, hardly anyone's idea of a dove, famously proclaimed that in exercising diplomatic and military power, the US should "Talk softly and carry a big stick."

In contrast, each time there's a terror attack or other violent incident anywhere in the world, Donald Trump speaks loudly, while...

If Donald Trump's strange appetites run towards a three-some, he'd better be careful about getting what he wants. Because he may be about to have his private parts crushed by a pair of tough, powerful women.

What It Will Take To Unite Clinton and Sanders and Their Supporters

(0) Comments | Posted June 9, 2016 | 12:49 PM

Bernie Sanders is scheduled to meet today with President Obama and Harry Reid, who will almost certainly urge Bernie to give up his campaign to flip superdelegates and to endorse Hillary, campaign for her, and urge his supporters to vote for her to defeat Donald Trump.

And whether it takes...

Defeating the racist, misogynist, xenophobic Donald Trump will require a principled and united front between Hillary, Bernie and their supporters.

So yes, Bernie should come around to endorsing Hillary, campaign for her, and urge all of his supporters to vote for her to...

Donald Trump is a really tough guy.

He's so tough that he'd build a "beautiful" 3000 mile wall and make Mexico pay for it.

He's so tough that he'd magically make ISIS disappear.

He's so tough that he'd call up the CEO of...

In Hillary Clinton, the Democrats seem determined to nominate the most disliked Presidential candidate in polling history, unless, that is, the Republican establishment fails to stop Donald Trump, who's even more disliked.

The latest NBC/Wall Street Journal poll shows 56% of...

The Clinton and Sanders campaigns are harming themselves and each of their chances of defeating the Republican nominee by descending into the gutter of charges over whether or not the other is qualified to be President.

The biggest question for Bernie Sanders and his supporters is whether they'll transform his presidential campaign into a permanent organization that can carry his political revolution forward in the long-term; or whether, like Occupy Wall Street, it will quickly disappear.

"I will not promise you something I cannot deliver," Hillary Clinton has repeatedly told voters, including a group of mainly African American voters in South Carolina last week.

This is meant to contrast Hillary's "achievable" small bore reforms to Bernie Sander's more sweeping reform proposals which are allegedly less...

The best question at last week's Democratic debate originated not with the moderators but apparently from a voter through New England Cable News who asked whether Secretary Clinton would release the transcripts of her private speeches to Goldman Sachs (for which...

Why Iowa Was a Virtual Tie and Not a 'Win' for Hillary

(56) Comments | Posted February 2, 2016 | 6:21 PM

It's obvious why Hillary Clinton and her campaign would like to spin Iowa as a "win" for Hillary.

And the mainstream media likes to covers the race like it's ball game with a clear winner and loser in each caucus or primary.

But proclaiming a Hillary "win" is misleading when...

The Clinton campaign's aggressive attacks on Bernie Sanders' long-term goal of Medicare-For-All are shameful, disingenuous and betray fundamental Democratic values:

It's a fundamental distortion to claim that Medicare-For-All would deprive millions of Americans of their healthcare by eliminating Medicare, Medicaid, and...
