Has Paul Ryan become so disaffected with Donald Trump that he quietly changed political parties, when no one was looking? We know the Washington Post just made a typo, but still, it's fun to think about, right?
Bernie Sanders has pledged to take his fight all the way to the party's June gathering even if the California primary clinches the nomination for Hillary Clinton. But are both parties headed for a showdown? The answer is no.
How can we explain the virulent hatred toward Hillary Clinton from men and women of both political parties? The attacks against her: Benghazi, personal emails, lying, etc., are relatively minor, the usual political scuttlebutt, in contrast to the extreme intensity of her vilification.
This has been an election season filled with extremes--some believe that it's one of the craziest, nastiest, and most vitriolic elections we've seen in decades. And it's (potentially) about to be one of the loudest.
Many including me have consistently given Bernie Sanders the credit for fighting for what he believes in and suggesting he should decide on his own wh...
Whether or not the debate between Donald Trump and Bernie Sanders materializes, the mere possibility of such an event merits our consideration. Apart from making history, what would a Trump-Sanders face-off mean for the three principal stakeholders?
The ideological divide between Democrats in the U.S. is unmistakable when you look at a map of their respective wins--and it's not a positive sign for Clinton's general election chances.
And while the Hillary folks are complaining about the unreasonable "Bernie or Bust" people, the bare truth of the matter is that Hillary's most formidable opponent is her own record.
I am not so opposed to Hillary Clinton that I would consider supporting a 3rd party candidate. I understand why establishment GOP politicians don't want to be seen voting for Donald Trump -- who is lacks conservative values -- or for Hillary Clinton, who they have been ideologically opposed to for decades.
Hillary, I understand that you want to discuss issues that are important to our country but you don't get to determine the rules of the game. The voters do. They seem to be responding to the Trump side show, so you need to become a carnival barker.
Many recall "Clinton Fatigue," one of the reasons Hillary Clinton's 2008 presidential campaign faltered and fell. Now people are tired of even bringi...
If we can't report that things have happened when our personal opinion is that they've happened or "as good as" happened, I don't see what the point of having wall-to-wall cable news on fifty different channels is.
So what if Superman can fly? Olivia Pope has him beat. My daughter's friend got me started watching the TV show, Scandal. I know the show is ridicul...
The wonderful Australian-born economist, Arthur Smithies, became a warm friend of mine one summer long ago in Saigon. I drank beer, he drank martinis....
If you want to try to make the argument that Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton are essentially the same, go ahead ... I guess. But just remember the faces of those you're going to have to convince.
Is it possible that a misogynist, nativist, racist, faux billionaire who refuses to release his tax returns, a "reality" TV celebrity and tweeting buffoon has a shot at becoming the President of the United States after the age of Obama?
