For the last six weeks, my inbox has been jammed with "urgent" messages from various congressional candidates and progressive organizations. They use a number of tricks to get you to open the email.
The Supreme Court has unwittingly uncovered and exposed the depth of most often GOP partisans to deprive modest and low income voters -- those most likely to be dependent upon over-burdened public transport and trying to feed and shelter families -- of the franchise.
Fantasy makes great television and literature. It also makes poor public policy. Poverty denial molds how many conservatives, and even independents, understand economic deprivation.
The season of progressive discontent over Hillary's coming 2016 candidacy is upon us.
The Boston Globe about Wall Street's secretly purchased influence in Washington, D.C. was somewhat mistitled as being about the "struggle for the Democratic Party's Soul." It's also about how Wall Street's virtually unlimited cash secretly influences the key debates as well as the policy outcomes in the nation's capital.
She may want to talk about giving us a 'fighting chance' and the 'fair shot' we deserve. But Truman-esque and Warren-esque don't work for Clinton because, for better or worse, we know her, specifically Democratic party goers know her, far too well.

Cover of her book. Elizabeth Warren for Vice President! That's the exciting idea which came to mind when I watched her making the rounds of the tal...
It's hard to square Orman's initial denial with the admission that immediately followed. Perhaps it was a lawyerish parsing -- "it depends on what the meaning of 'at' is."
On the third anniversary of Occupy Wall Street, don't be so sure that that the ranting and raving about income inequality, fracking and student debt is dead.
When former Congressman Anthony Weiner -- a Democrat from New York -- dismissed my concerns about the Wall Street-Washington revolving door, it was business as usual.
Now that Corinthian, which was taking in as much as $1.4 billion a year in taxpayer dollars, is collapsing under the weight of law enforcement probes and bad student outcomes, I worry that a prolonged focus on its horrid acts might allow other terrible actors in the for-profit college industry to sneak out the back door.
In 2008, as you'll recall, the overwhelming frontrunner finished third in Iowa behind Barack Obama and John Edwards. She ended up just a weekend of furious Bill Clinton campaigning in New Hampshire away from being stampeded from the race at its very beginning.
Student loan debt is exploding. It has grown so much and so fast that it not only crushes millions of young people, but it also has started to weigh down our entire economy.
When Clinton, unlike Gillibrand, isn't on an important list of America's big political thinkers, does it matter?
An expert on how Wall Street and the banking industry are destroying the middle class, Senator Warren has put that knowledge to powerful use on Capitol Hill, rapidly becoming the most authoritative and articulate voice of the Democratic Party's progressive wing. Many are urging her to run for president.
