It's important to cultivate an attitude of gratitude in our daily lives. We count our blessings in tough times, and today I am counting my many blessings in an hour of hope and determination.
The Democratic Party's special class of entitled and unelected VIP delegates helps explain what's wrong with the way we choose our presidential candidates.
What If They Wore Two Gloves? Awful terrorism seems to validate Trump's hard line. Security analysts point out that each of the two suspected sui...
There are two Democrats whose resignation from office right now would do their party and country a service.
In one telling moment, Obama reminded Schultz that the DNC post was not about her, but as he put it, "Don't forget you work for me." That's true at least in part. The part being that Obama put her in her DNC head post, and that means that he can take the lead in removing her.
We had two Democratic debates and one Republican debate last week. The GOP one was shocking -- because nobody said anything shocking! Yes, that's truly how far the Republicans have sunk -- to the Sherlockian level of the dog not snarling in the night being the big news.
A nationally-televised presidential debate stage is, indeed, neither the time nor the place, one would think. This year, however, all the rules have been thrown out and we've got Donald Trump and Marco Rubio comparing relative penis sizes in their effort to become the so-called leader of the free world.
Debbie's job is to get Democrats elected nationally in the congress and the presidency. She's also a House Democrat from Florida. Allegedly. Through her actions, you have to wonder if she's really some sort of Republican operative whose agenda is to destroy the Democratic Party.
If the Democratic Party wants a democratic nominating process, it should send a letter to news outlets demanding that they not misreport the results of primaries and caucuses. To the extent Debbie Wasserman Schultz doesn't do that, she advances the narrative that she's in the bag for Clinton.
Why is my opponent -- Debbie Wasserman Schultz -- introducing legislation in Congress to deregulate an industry that is already profiting from ripping off millions of Americans?
What makes the DNC's decision even more offensive and obtuse is the fact that a central and widely accepted platform of this entire election season is campaign finance reform, rejecting the use of corrupt money in politics, and overturning Citizens United.
After what can only be described as an absolute disaster of an electoral showing in the New Hampshire primary, Hillary Clinton's hopes of becoming the Democratic nominee in 2016 increasingly hinge on her support from the Democratic establishment.
Democrats are down to a head-to-head contest, which was on full display last night. Both Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders made their respective cases fairly well, and the jostling between them for position was notable.
Many have been comparing Senator Bernie Sanders' surge in the primary polls and his increasingly competitive battle with Hillary Clinton to 2008 and her fight with Barack Obama. It's not the same in two ways.
