The appeal of a billionaire "telling it like it is" has me thinking about Money, Investing and the key American ideal of Liberty. I am wondering if a...

World Peace BBQ Ribs

Elaine Ambrose

The adults at our recent family BBQ will cancel each other's votes in the next presidential election. Yet we were all able to come together and eschew politics to chew on the best ribs in the whole world. And no one was offended, criticized, or shot -- and that's always a goal at my dinner parties.

We're really in the home stretch of the Democratic primaries now, as the last few territories and the last eight states will all be voting in the upcoming weeks. Tuesday night, Oregon and Kentucky will weigh in, and then the last six states (who, for some unfathomable reason, all decided to go last this year) will finally get a chance to vote.

Now that both parties have presumptive nominees for the 2016 Presidential election, given the outcomes of Tuesday's primaries in five states, we are all holding our breath to see what happens next.

Calling Tomorrow's Primary Races

The nation's smallest state will vote tomorrow night. Not a whole lot of polling exists here, but it's pretty clear on the Republican side. Donald Trump will sail to victory here, with a huge margin. John Kasich looks to take second, with Cruz far behind.

Tomorrow's New York primary will be the decisive one, the pundits tell us. It will join a long list of other primaries and caucuses which were also deemed to be the crucial one which would decide the whole race.

The ever momentous campaign of Donald Trump, once considered the ugly step-child of the Republican presidential field, has made the him leading contender for the party's presidential nomination. And that is in part a reflection of how many Americans' appetite for entertainment and celebrity culture.

As we see it, three urgent questions face America, and if the next president, Congress and the American people themselves do not answer those questions honestly and realistically, the future for our children and the nation will be immensely more difficult.

My Daughter Is Afraid of Donald Trump

Kristie Stumpf Rork

Snuggling on the sofa with my eight-year daughter one evening, a commercial for the nightly news hinted of a sensational story about the 2016 political candidates. My daughter looked at me, with sadness in her eyes, "Mommy, I don't want Trump to be president." "Why is that, baby?" I ask. "Because half of my friends would disappear from school!"

Predicting Tuesday's Primaries

Calling Florida is pretty easy, on both sides of the aisle. Hillary Clinton will dominate, continuing her sweep of the South. The big news here, however, is going to be Donald Trump beating Marco Rubio in his home state.

My Super Tuesday Picks

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.

My Picks for Nevada (D) and South Carolina (R)

Chris Weigant | Posted 02.17.2016 | Politics
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.

My New Hampshire Picks

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.

My Iowa Predictions

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.

A New Years Musing: Aquasize for the Candidates

Carol Smaldino | Posted 01.05.2016 | Politics

It's been some years already that my friend Craig and I have been collaborating, at least in fantasy, in various ideas as to how Aquasize -- exercise in the water -- might be used as a variant of tranquilizer and cooperation agent, in meetings of great importance which often are burdened with conflict bordering on hatred.

I am submitting my annual Christmas list with the hope that you will recognize how good my fellow college presidents and I have tried to be during the past year. We have strived to remain student-centered, faculty-friendly, alumni-attentive, constituent-conscious, and donor-diligent.

Presidential Candidates on Supporting Women in the Workforce

Rana Florida | Posted 11.19.2015 | Business
Rana Florida

I see it happening all the time -- women who went to Ivy League schools and who held highly-demanding, high-status, high-pay jobs -- deciding to stay at home after they have a baby. They all thought carefully about their decisions, weighing the pros and cons. Instead of the prison of a 9 to 5 work culture, they preferred to keep their brains sharp and stay connected by volunteering and sitting on boards.
