When you combine a Putin personality (says Kasparov) with a sociopath (says author of "Art of The Deal"), you get a Convention that wants to jail Hillary Clinton. Stuart Stevens & Ron Reagan agree that he's unlikely to win but may splinter the GOP into Reform-icon and Nativist Wings.
That this whole GOP event feels somehow out-of-step seems appropriate. If there is a word for this convention so far it might be "soulless," as if the zombies of The Walking Dead suddenly were in a position to vote, make speeches, influence policy decisions -- and dance.
A chill went down my spine when I saw private remarks from Chris Christie, regarding one of Donald Trump's first moves, if he is elected.
A few of my college students copied entire papers - in one case, a paper was bought off an internet site. But mostly, they lifted bits and pieces verbatim, without citing their sources. I'd still give them an F. It doesn't matter if you cheat a little or you cheat a lot, you're still a cheater.
The coming presidential election could cause a liberty lover to commit ritual seppuku. A left-wing corporatist and friend of influence-peddlers will face off against an unprincipled populist who supports big government and carries protectionist and anti-immigration banners.
These are exciting political questions, eliciting no shortage of educated guesses and snarky tweets. But what's harder to find is real data. The public polling -- while not flawed -- ultimately just measures underlying partisanship or the hard ID of the different candidates.
Donald Trump is set to announce his running mate in the 2016 presidential election on Friday. Four individuals have repeatedly been mentioned as strong contenders for the position by sources close to the Trump campaign.
The anticipation is killing us: What name will appear along with Donald Trump's on the Republican ticket? The presumptive nominee could announce his VP pick any day now, just in time for the Republican National Convention in Cleveland next week.
Sources close to Jared Kushner, who is Ivanka Trump's husband, say that Kushner has been telling them that New Jersey Governor Chris Christie will b...
One of the mysteries of life is why Atlantic City, with all its natural advantages including proximity to the ocean, a long boardwalk and a location...
It is a sad day for equity and opportunity in New Jersey that Governor Christie has decided to overturn America's most important education lawsuit.
As the stream of Republicans fleeing the Donald Trump candidacy becomes a flood, it does seem the appropriate metaphor to use -- the ships are leaving the sinking rat this time, not the other way 'round.
It's clear that Governor Christie isn't even trying.
Assuming he isn't ousted as the GOP's presidential nominee at the party's Cleveland convention next month, who will be Donald Trump's vice presidential running mate?
The historian Ken Burns used, or perhaps coined, the phrase "Vichy Republicans" in a recent commencement address.
no amount of re-watching US House Speaker Paul D. Ryan can persuade us of his genuine endorsement of Donald Trump. Vacant eyes of veiled dishonesty try to assure us that he has spoken to the man he believes shares his Republican values.
