Obama rebuilt this nation, under the most difficult of political situations, with unprecedented obstruction. Hope and Change happened. His legacies are remarkable. They should be celebrated.
As more Americans begin tuning into this election, it is hard to believe my ears when I hear people claim that Hillary Clinton needs to somehow burnish her credentials for promoting equality and fighting for working families.
A free trade agreement (FTA) expands economic opportunity in foreign markets for American workers and businesses, while doing the same for their foreign counterparts in our market. The increased trade improves the overall economy of each country. But, in order to avoid unwanted side effects, modern FTAs do more.
Bernie Sanders will save America from becoming a coin flip democracy because his value system is the antithesis of Clinton's coin flip evolution on almost every major topic. In terms of fundraising after Iowa, and delegates, he won the first contest.

The choices we make now -- whether we move our economy towards clean energy or deepen our dependence on dirty fuels -- will have huge repercussions for our children and grandchildren. It's bad enough to contemplate our kids asking us why didn't try harder to solve climate change.

To my friends supporting Sanders and O'Malley, we share common dreams and values that our Democratic nominee must fulfill. We need a Democratic president and a Democratic Congress to build on the progress that has been made.
Donald Trump dragged Senator Ted Cruz into what is now (at least) the sixth "birther controversy" in history of presidential elections since the Civil War. Cruz, the son of a Cuban father and American mother, was born in Calgary, Canada in 1970.
Former state Rep. Jon Keyser eagerly offered his opinion on the Iran nuclear deal, but he dodged questions on whether he'd like to change TABOR and abolish a state program offering in-state tuition for undocumented college students.

Republicans see even the slightest reform to gun policy as a slippery slope that could eventually lead to proposals to abolish the Second Amendment which is unfortunate when there is a credible middle ground to be reached.
Bernie's platform isn't just good policy, it is hands down superior to every other presidential candidate's platform. Bernie supporters are not naïve. The point of electing Bernie is not to get anything done. It is to stop all the corrupt, corporate, political forces from getting anything more done.
