One of the ultimate signs of the settlement of the Kurdish issue in Turkey will be the representation of the Kurds in the political centre with their own identity and demands. This may be the harbinger of such an eventuality.

Biden Speculation

Joe Biden certainly has got the media talking. All it really took was one leak to Maureen Dowd and a meeting with Senator Elizabeth Warren, and he's now seriously considering it. But a Biden candidacy bears political examination beyond the simple question of "Will he or won't he run?"

Never mind the decades of gibberish we have been subjected to about "tax cuts increase revenue to the government" and "low taxes means more jobs" and "pro-growth policies" and "government takes money out of the economy" and "tax cuts hurt growth" and "taxes are theft."

In normal years, this would be the official kickoff to the political Silly Season.

Donald Trump is the bull in a china shop, and I mean that in the nicest way. His competitors, delicate breakables, are lined up on the shelf, concerned that any bold move could topple them to the ground.

The Not-So-Secret Reason Why Women Lack Political Power

Charlotte Hill | Posted 07.17.2015 | Politics

When these economic elites are predominantly male -- the names of Jeb Bush's super PAC donors read like a bachelor party guest list -- this means that American public policy is disproportionately influenced by men. Decisions about whether to prioritize issues like paid sick leave, affordable child care, birth control access and equal pay are not ultimately made by the people they impact most: women.
