Tomorrow's the big night, whether you prefer to call it Super Tuesday or the "SEC Tuesday" (because of all the Southern states). So rather than scramble to get this out before the polls close tomorrow night, I'm posting all my primary picks today.

Trump: The Kardashian of Politics

Heather Higgins | Posted 02.29.2016 | Politics
Heather Higgins

Donald Trump's galvanizing celebrity is trumping political certitudes, pundits, and pollsters. But consider the parallels between two brilliant marketers: Donald Trump, candidate, and Kris Jenner, mother and architect of all things Kardashian.

Why I Am Inspired to Educate

Kermit S. Randa | Posted 02.22.2016 | Education
Kermit S. Randa

There are so many teachers, administrators, and educators who impacted my life; I am unable to pick just one to highlight. And as I think back on all that they collectively taught me, I realize the incredible gifts I received every time I pause to think a step ahead, or tackle an analytic challenge or pick up a book. I would not be who I am today without them.

Life on the Campaign Trail

John Roman, Ph.D.

I've heard candidate's say jaw-dropping things in private. I've been berated by family for associating with candidates they despised. I was subject to very public and profane tirades for being eight minutes late early morning meetings after two hours of sleep.

Chris Weigant

Yes, we've got two primary races to be decided this Saturday, in two different states and two different parties. Democrats in Nevada and South Carolina Republicans will both vote on the same day, for no real logical reason. Let's take a look forward to Saturday's races.

Corporate conservatives have taken notice of the Bernie Sanders campaign, and have started accusing him of "buying votes" by "promising" "free stuff." Is it true? Here are some examples of what the corporate/billionaire-funded right is saying.

My New Hampshire Picks

Chris Weigant

It is time once again to peer deeply into my somewhat-foggy crystal ball, and attempt to pick the winners of tomorrow night's New Hampshire primary. Before I get to that, though, some old business needs to be brought up. First, we have some very recent old business and then some truly ancient business, so bear with me.

Bern the Witch-Hunters

David Trumble | Posted 02.03.2016 | Politics
David Trumble

In the absence of name-calling, smear campaigns, misogyny and conspiracy theorizing by Bernie, his supporters have compensated by doing it all themselves. The Sanders campaign has no need for attack ads, their supporters write infinitely more toxic slurs and accusations in countless blogs.

My Iowa Predictions

Chris Weigant | Posted 02.01.2016 | Politics
Chris Weigant

The primary season officially gets underway tonight, as Iowa voters brave the winter weather and head to the caucuses. This will give political wonks some actual hard data to discuss, instead of just opinion polling and sheer speculation, so it's a big day on the political calendar for us.

Sanders Versus Trump, Revisited

Chris Weigant | Posted 01.13.2016 | Politics
Chris Weigant

Bernie Sanders versus Donald Trump in the general election? How preposterous an idea! Of course, when writing one of these articles a good rule of thumb is to always point out how speculative the concept all is, which I dutifully did.

Donald Trump Faces The Music

Malcolm Kushner | Posted 01.13.2016 | Politics
Malcolm Kushner

Many political pundits accuse Donald Trump of blowing his own horn. So much that they sound like a broken record. But maybe it's time they changed their tune. Because when it comes to his presidential campaign, Mr. Trump may have to march to the beat of his own drum.

Clinton Not Inevitable Nominee

Chris Weigant | Posted 01.11.2016 | Politics
Chris Weigant

There is no guarantee that the name on that ballot will be Hillary Clinton. She's already vulnerable in at least two of the first four states to vote, and if she loses both Iowa and New Hampshire then the rest of the country (including the media) will start paying a lot more attention to Bernie.

Dave Johnson | Posted 12.07.2015 | Politics
Dave Johnson

There is one test that, if she passes it, could convince voters that Clinton is on their side. It involves what Clinton does over the next few months to prove that she meant it when she came out in opposition to the Trans-Pacific Partnership trade deal a few weeks ago.

Nake M. Kamrany

The next president should note that it is vital for the U.S. government to reduce its reliance on military engagement as a solution to world concerns and instead focus its resources on tackling domestic problems such as our prison and justice system failures, immigration, and the burden of college debt.
