Humpty Dumpty sat on a wall and it didn't end well for him. Donald Trump has promised to build a wall across the US/Mexican border, and the results ar...
Hillary needs to overcome the stereotype by being the strong leader on issues that many of us who support her know she is. That means boldly stating her positions and not taking the safe road so she can generate headlines of her own.
On the surface, Sanders looks like a concerned 74-year old grandfather who has spent his political career serving a state that is 95 percent White. But go a little deeper and you will find that there is much more to the man who some believe has what it takes to pulverize the political machine.
In implicating Trump as a bigot and, by association, the audience as cohorts or sheep, the media, especially the photo media, thoroughly missed the most curious and unscripted moment of this dispiriting campaign.
Even given the policy analysis failures of Trump's positions, other leading Republican contenders for the presidency are far more clearly referring to mental health as an excuse to dodge gun control rather than develop a functional system.
Google has spoken. Apparently shaken by my recent article in Politico -- "How Google Can Rig the 2016 Election" -- Google's head of search, Dr. Amit Singhal, has published a critique -- "A Flawed Elections Conspiracy Theory." I encourage you to read it closely.
All of us who have been candidates, winners and losers, know the difference between being a potential or a real one. In this race, Joe would immediately be under pressure, under attack and the target of intense and sometimes seemingly insane social media scrutiny.
The Harvard University Institute of Politics, well known for its polling data on voting patterns, created the National Campaign back in 2003 to explore ways to translate Millennial buzz around social justice and service into more tangible civic and political outcomes.
Ultimately, this is a decision that Joe Biden has to make. And, by all accounts, it is a hell of an emotional one. I feel for him. There's always a chance that Biden could run, and win. But the chances are, frankly, slim.
Spoiler alert! If Republicans were given the choice of Trump or "other," most Republicans would vote "other." However, because our election system is "first past the post" (FPTP), the winner takes all.
With apologies to the immortal Casey Kasem, here's America's top tunes on the summer 2015 campaign hit parade. This Number One hit goes out on request to Hillary in Chappaqua.
Trump is a breath of fresh air for those who want a brash, honest voice untainted by the political institution. His confident, grandiose speeches invigorate his supporters, who are largely dissatisfied with the political establishment and obsessed with "taking their country back."
I have no doubt that Dr. Carson is a fantastic surgeon, and I highly encourage him to keep doing what he's good at, what made him famous, what made him loved and what kept him far too busy--presumably and understandably--to read the United States Constitution.
With a stroke of his pen, President Obama can help address one particularly troubling area of dark money spending in elections. He can issue an Executive Order requiring major companies that are awarded federal contracts to disclose all of their political donations.
Asian Americans are the fastest growing immigrant group in the country and will comprise the largest immigrant population in the nation in several decades. You wouldn't know these facts if listening to the Republican candidates on the campaign trail.
Poor Jeb. He's stepped in it again. Responding to the possible need for new gun laws following the most recent school shootings and killings, this time Roseburg, Oregon, Jeb noted, "Look, stuff happens."
