Little disgusts me more than spineless politicians spewing elect-me slogans field tested to slap negativity on their opponent while laminating sugar over their own record. Both Democrats and Republicans excel at this.
Vote your interests in November. Continue to be partisan to your heart's delight. Just don't call yourself a patriot if you search to find reasons to disregard objective facts, data and documented history in an attempt to justify rooting against a sitting president.
When the new Senate convenes next year, the most influential person on Capitol Hill could be Greg Orman, the independent candidate for senator from Kansas, who I predict today will be elected in November.

Because Clinton can act as both a star player for Democrats and a believable referee for voters, alone among national figures, he provides a major advantage to Democrats.
Sen. Schumer urged Congress to craft a stricter definition of inversion and enact a ban on "earnings stripping." Earnings stripping? You'll love this. Earnings stripping refers to a practice by which a foreign-based parent corporation loans large sums to -- wait for it -- itself.
