I turned on the campaign coverage early today just in time to catch the big floor fight among the delegates. Call it the final death throes of the "Never Trump" movement.
This past Saturday June 11, 2016 there was a meeting of Bernie Supporters at the "Bravehearts for Bernie: a Brews for Bernie event" at Caution Brewin...
Shame on Senator Elizabeth Warren. How could she appear on MSNBC's Rachel Maddow show to endorse Hillary Clinton on the same afternoon that Bernie San...
Thank you for reawakening a wave of excitement within the Democratic Party. Thank you for championing a list of issues that I could heartily agree with, and for refusing to be distracted from your agenda by the usual mudslinging and other negative campaigning tactics so common in politics today.
One poll exists from New Mexico, but it is really too old to be very informative. Back in late February, Clinton was up over Sanders by 14 points (47 to 33 percent). That's not much to go on now, though.
I can now say I have felt the Bern, from beginning to end. I have seen how the Bernie revolution began and I have also seen it entering the homestretch of campaigning during the primary season, one short week before California and a few other states become the last to vote.
Abstain from Hillary. Your loyalty to Hillary cannot be questioned, but you allow the torch to be passed to a new generation by saying nothing. If you were elected as delegate BEFORE the Inspector General's Report you can say you withheld judgment until further information has become available. With a clear mind you can abstain.
It might make sense for Hillary Clinton to play the long game and campaign in high-profile locales - but it's a drag the Democratic frontrunner couldn't at least hold a rally in beautiful Oregon before the recent primary here.
It seems that Sanders and his supporters have monopolized the moral high ground and cornered the market on outrage. At the same time, their moral purity is unencumbered by a morally reprehensible election strategy.
Can we all just take a deep breath? I'm speaking to many Democratic voters as well as the bulk of the mainstream media here, just to clarify. Because far too many seem to currently be going off the deep end. But from where I sit, this is an overreaction to a very short-term situation.
The state Democratic convention in Nevada Saturday devolved into a chaotic demonstration of party division and the emotional theatrics of candidate-centered movements.
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.
Today, I'm offering up my own clip show as a retrospective for how we all got to where we stand today: on the brink of Donald Trump essentially wrapping up the Republican nomination for the highest office in the land.
Sanders hangs his claim on defining "contested convention" in a way it never has been before and ignoring the way voting takes place at the convention.
There comes a time in every presidential campaign that finds itself increasingly away from the finish line to reassess their chances. This is precisely what Hillary Clinton had to do eight years ago when then-Senator Barack Obama created an insurmountable lead in the Democratic primary and kept a lock on his superdelegates heading into the convention.
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.
