Pop singer Demi Lovato endorsed Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton Thursday night at the University of Iowa. Lovato was pretty 'Confident' in Clinton, "I truly believe there is nobody more qualified to run this country," Lovato said. But, not everyone in the U of I crowd was as 'Confident.' "All we got was I think a five minute kind of celebratory speech and that was it," said Eric Dirth, 24, an U of I law student. He was just one of many who were left with a bad taste after the night.
For the next few months the people who are vying to be our next president will be amazingly accessible.

Trump's whole agenda is provocation, which isn't to say he doesn't believe what he's saying. But he's also so over the top, so almost unbelievably bold, that he's become something of a parody of himself. And it feels as if he's fully in on the joke, which he may be. We could use a little provocation.
