Hillary, I understand that you want to discuss issues that are important to our country but you don't get to determine the rules of the game. The voters do. They seem to be responding to the Trump side show, so you need to become a carnival barker.
Many recall "Clinton Fatigue," one of the reasons Hillary Clinton's 2008 presidential campaign faltered and fell. Now people are tired of even bringi...
The most common response is that Bernie as yet has not been tested by the Republican's slime machine. This meme is repeated so often (especially by Hillary surrogates) that it has taken on the status of conventional wisdom. It must be true or why would everyone be saying it?
Last Sunday, I drove back to my old 'hood in the Flatbush/Midwood neighborhood of Brooklyn to show my son where I was born. It is the same neighborhood where Bernie Sanders and my mother were born and raised and attended James Madison High.

As the primary phase of the presidential campaign winds down speculation about the prospect of a Donald Trump versus Hillary Clinton general election ...
If you're one of the many who don't like any presidential nominee this election cycle, don't waste your energy trying to decide whether to vote or not to vote, focus your thinking on which nominee's spouse you could tolerate in the White House.
People need to get this through some rather thick skulls. It can happen here. Donald Trump can be elected president. This country can become a much bigger mess than it already is.
All right. Stop whatcha doin' cause I'm about to ruin the image and the style that ya used to. Remember the ridiculous old rap classic "The Humpty Da...
There's no shame in staying. People who do the work on their relationships and come out the other side are truly warriors. They value love, commitment and marriage. To that I say, "Bravo."
Across the Democratic coalition as a whole, the last seven years have witnessed the increasing presence in the progressive policy debate of two linked but competing lists of policy preferences.
Last month Axelrod authoritatively declared a new piece of political conventional wisdom; Gun Violence Prevention is a winning political platform.
