Disappointed in your "two choices" for President of the United States? Don't like the Tea Party, Green Party, Libertarian Party or any party for that matter? How about voting for a write-in candidate?
You don't know me from Eve, but I am now and always have been a member of the feminist party. That's not to say I don't like men, some of my best friends are men, even my husband, and I don't make this pronouncement to be arrogant or "uppity." It's just who I am.
Despite underestimating Trump, Shrum/Christie/Green prognosticate again post-primaries: Will great persona + viral message be ticket for future presidents? Will reactionary GOP reconstitute after realigning loss? Will Trump put bully Christie in VP pulpit or go nuclear with Knight? Should no-drama Hillary choose a guy to help with guys or win with Warren?
There's nothing in the Constitution that requires term-limits for the Vice President of the United States. With that in mind, why isn't Vice President Joe Biden part of the mix when it comes to those being contemplated as possible running mates for former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton?
This was a week of goodbyes. On Tuesday, with big wins in the New York primary by Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton, the chances for Ted Cruz and Bernie Sanders to win the nominations before the conventions didn't exactly leave the building, but they're headed for the exits. Later that night, Elizabeth Warren, in an epic Twitter rant, said goodbye to Ted Cruz's whining. In response to an email Cruz sent out about the "significant sacrifice" he was making by running, including that his "health and sleep are limited," Warren tweeted: "Know whose sleep is limited? Working parents who stay up worrying about getting kids thru college w/o big debt. @TedCruz blocked #refi." At least both agree on the importance of sleep. But the saddest goodbye came on Thursday with the news of Prince's death. He was an incredibly talented, versatile, gender-bending, glow-in-the-dark genius whose music was so undeniably human and irresistible - a force of harmony in a time of division. As he wrote in his song Baltimore, "Peace is more than the absence of war."
As the media now pivots to vice presidential candidates for presumptive Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton, she should take a page out of her husband's playbook and buck conventional wisdom.
To me, all of these questions stem from the fact that Hillary supporters assume that they and Bernie supporters are fundamentally on the same team. Doesn't the fundamental rule of "The enemy of my enemy is my friend" still apply?
There was some good news and some bad news on marijuana this week, which got us thinking about how the subject of federal marijuana policy relates to the presidential nomination race.
It's long past time for consumer protections to catch up to modern realities. For something as important as a family's retirement savings, there's no reason the retirement services industry shouldn't be held to a standard like that of other professions handling such serious matters.
As many Americans have learned this hard-fought election cycle, U.S. territories actually do participate in presidential primaries despite not having a vote in November.
Democratic populism seems to be growing. If Sanders falls short this time around, the next time a populist runs, they may actually succeed. Bernie has already gone a long way towards transforming the Democratic Party into a much more people-centered party.
The Republican presidential nomination race has previously devolved to the level of an elementary school playground (penis-measuring in a national debate), and has now risen to at least high school (if not a college frat house) with the vicious battle going on between Donald Trump and Ted Cruz over who can insult each other's wives the most.
What do you think are the real reasons that no Wall Street executives have been prosecuted for fraud as a result of the 2008 financial crisis? origina...
In spite of the extreme improbably that he'll ever be in a position to catch up to Clinton on the delegate front, Sanders' campaign is still very much alive and can continue to compete from a message perspective.
After the financial crisis, where were the full-scale public investigations? Where were the armies of auditors, seizing hard drives and poring over the financial statements? Where were the teams of regulators who were supposed to be checking the books all along?
The point that needs to be made and is often missed, when it comes to the utterances from the right-wing crazy train, is that the presidency is a real job and requires the person to fill that job to live in reality.
