One thing is certain: intolerance and hatred inevitably lead to violence and death. Our primary response to the horrific massacre at the Pulse nightclub must be to rededicate ourselves to creating a culturally diverse society that is based on tolerance and respect for other religions, sexual orientations, races and life styles.
Poor Bernie Sanders. He made his big post-primary return to Washington Thursday, meeting with President Obama, Vice President Biden, and Senate Democr...
When in the past have you ever heard the term "unendorse" used? We haven't checked, but we believe it just got coined and added to the political lexicon.
The passing of Brother Muhammad Ali, at 74, will doubtless stimulate recollections and reflections in many Americans, non-Muslim no less than Muslim.
I had the privilege of attending a wonderful interfaith conference in Pristina, the capital of Kosovo last week, with over 300 people from more than 50 countries around the world.
I was at LA's Greek Theater Monday night watching Hillary Clinton speak after the AP announced she had clinched the nomination. It was an electric, historic turning point that reminded me of another time I saw Hillary on another electric, historic turning point years ago.
Hillary Clinton has finally done herself some real good with her big speech late last week in San Diego going after Donald Trump's aggressively ignorant and dangerous approach to geopolitics and national security affairs.
Many Americans will not explore the details of the Whitewater scandal, the distress of Vince Foster, multiple allegations against Bill Clinton of coer...
It's hard to believe it, but Barack Obama today is more popular than Ronald Reagan was at this juncture in his last year of office, in 1988. But will it help Hillary Clinton secure another term for the Democrats? A look at the evidence produces a surprising finding.
Love the screaming headline, Jonathan Cohn. But I know you didn't write it. It's those sleazy editors who do that. You're right, yesterday (or as...
Trump graduated college in 1968 and managed to not serve in the Vietnam War as the conflict reached its deadly apex. For some reason this campaign season the press doesn't much care about the topic and has largely walked away from the model of previous cycles when Baby Boomer candidates were repeatedly pressed to explain their '60s wartime years.
California public polls are all over the place. One very respected poll has a statistical tie, while a couple of other public polls have double-digit Clinton leads. My read is that both are off, that Hillary is ahead, but Bernie is in striking distance.
It might make sense for Hillary Clinton to play the long game and campaign in high-profile locales - but it's a drag the Democratic frontrunner couldn't at least hold a rally in beautiful Oregon before the recent primary here.
Presidents and their parties live and die on the performance of the economy. Every incumbent president defeated for reelection since World War I confronted a bad economy. Perceptions of economic health and economic opportunity shape voter choices and candidate strategies.

The State Department issues a report -- and Rick hears echoes... ...
