Bernie Sanders, to put this another way, doesn't need a focus group or a poll to tell him what he ought to stand for. He already knows what he stands for, and he'll freely tell you exactly what that is.

I have been thinking of Donald Trump and of my grandfather. His name was Shmuel Finklestein. The two are linked, though neither knew the other. My grandfather did not come across the border with Mexico. He came through the port of New York.

How long is five seconds? It's the amount of time the average driver looks away from the road to send a text. If you're going about 55 mph, by the time you look up from your phone, you'll have driven the whole length of a football field without looking at the road. Touchdown? Not quite.

Jeb?

Jeb Bush could wind up being America's next president. That's a statement that my fingers would actually refuse to type for several other Republicans, just because attempting to substitute "Donald Trump" or "Carly Fiorina" in that sentence would be so downright laughable.

All those who criticize President Obama's handling of foreign policy -- which includes the entire Republican presidential field, it almost goes without saying -- should really have to detail precisely what they'd do differently. The voters really do deserve an answer to this question, since these people are running to take Obama's place in the White House.

Toughening Up Hillary

Chris Weigant | Posted 06.20.2015 | Politics
Chris Weigant

I write today to challenge what is fast becoming conventional wisdom in the political world -- in particular, the notion that Hillary Clinton really needs a strong primary challenge to "toughen her up" for the upcoming race with whomever the Republicans decide upon. When you deconstruct the logic behind this idea, however, it falls apart.

Strange but true, the "Scooby van" is now part of our political lexicon. Hillary Clinton herself is apparently to blame for this one, as this was the playful name she came up with for the van she used to get from New York to Iowa this week.

Whether we wind up with President Clinton, Cruz, Rubio or Kardashian, whoever wins in 2016 will likely appoint justices to a court that already has a precarious ideological divide. There's no way to know, for sure, what cases they'll face in a few years, but there are already some major issues that appear likely to come before the court in some form.
