Like millions of other Americans, Benjamin Warner is watching this year's presidential debates very closely. However, he's one of the few viewers doin...
The good news is I may not need to get onto Elon Musk's Mars expedition after all. The first Trump-Clinton debate had loomed as a potential hinge in h...
Hillary is wining and as she does it she's bringing all of us to the table -- and she's putting critically important policies that are too often overlooked and which lift our economy and our families front and center on the national agenda where they belong.
"Implicit" bias refers to associations that are not fully conscious. We could not survive if all our decisions were completely subject to the conscious mind. Because the mind processes so much information, the brain has evolved to look for short cuts.
Our unhappiness with national politics should not cause us to give up hope. These days, most positive political activity is close to home, where communities actually improve when clergy, congregation members, and elected officials work together for the common good.
There has been relatively little speculation this election year about what could possibly be the "October surprise." In a normal presidential election year, this is a fun subject to speculate about when the actual news from the campaign trail gets dull and repetitive. This year, of course, that hasn't exactly happened.
It was a beautiful thing to watch. There's nothing sweeter than witnessing a Donald Trump implosion in front of 100-million people. I suspect the first presidential debate will likely go down as the modern-day Kennedy-Nixon contest for its ultimate impact on the election.
The goal of tonight's debate is for the two candidates to win your approval and man can I ever relate to that. It seems on one level or another all I seem to do is try to win over someone's approval. All. The. Time.
Donald Trump defeated sixteen other candidates in order to win the Republican nomination. Hillary Clinton struggled for months to hold off a Bernie Sanders insurgency. Though she had been convincingly ahead in polls in the weeks after the Democratic National Convention in July, that lead has been slipping into the single digits in most battleground state and national polls.
We long ago reached a point at which it became difficult to keep track of the various reasons Trump is unfit for high public office. One almost needs a chart with categories and subcategories to sort it all out.
On the surface, the inability to find any skilled rhetoric to analyze in the first debate is the result of neither candidate having much skill to demonstrate.
It's not hard to see how that shortsightedness has occurred over the years. As the middle class have been pushed out of the playing field and the poor have gotten even poorer, we can't help but feel we've moved far from that vision of equality.
With his decades-long record of sexism and disdain for women, Donald Trump as president would be catastrophic for working women. This kind of backward...
Doing all that work to spread fear isn't easy but luckily we've compiled a list of the five times Trump has rewrote history to support his warped message.
This past week, our country has seen a rash of gun violence that continues to dominate headlines. More lives torn apart, more families destroyed. It's...
With Donald Trump as the Republican nominee, the party is no longer the Grand Old Party. It is now a party led by a demagogic, authoritarian strongman whose rhetoric compares with the authoritarian, anti-democratic strongmen of history.
