Brexiting: Clinton and Warren Look Like Strong Casting While Brit Pols Are Just Casting About There's a lot of calculation at work when a presidenti...
As the 2016 Democratic presidential nominee, Hillary Clinton has the opportunity to correct a mistake made almost a quarter century ago. She can reaffirm the party's commitment to full employment.
Either Elizabeth Warren just made Hillary Clinton's vice-presidential choice a lot harder or a lot easier, depending on how you see her strategic decision-making process and how much chance you think a Clinton/Warren ticket has of becoming reality.
Unless we "set the menu" by engaging politically to change our food system, we will find ourselves on the menu of either the regressive politics of the far right or the neoliberal politics of the established Democratic party. Let the Brexit be warning.
The people of the UK are realizing how significant and complicated their #Brexit "oops" moment is, and many want a do-over.
There are statements that may appear foolish and wrong-headed when initially uttered, yet which--after the passage of time--we recognize as containing previously unseen wisdom. This ain't one of them.
I believe that Senator Sanders has a major role to play in helping our nation find its way, without us having to go through a painful experience like a Brexit -- spurred by the anxieties of part of our population and that in the end is inimical to all of our true interests.
A ridiculous huckster and nativist named Donald J. Trump is only days away from officially being the Republican Party nominee for president. And in the United Kingdom, Brexit has just validated that working class anger isn't only an American phenomenon and concern.
If you can turn things around now and make a demonstration of a lasting, trusted peace with Hillary, I think your revolution will continue and thrive.
Brexit seemed harmless and cute at first -- like a Labradoodle -- but it was more like a Sharknado. The British referendum on whether to leave the European Union became a freak cyclone that flooded the city of London with shark-infested seawater.
Now that the Democratic Party has become the Republican Party, the wisest and only logical move for the Republican Party is to become the Democratic Party.
Matalin thinks that Trump can still come back while vanden Heuvel doubts it even though Hillary's no Bernie. But given Trump's awful polls/analytics/infrastructure/party split, Host sees a coming "Rolling Realignment" that'll change government & America.
I have been watching Klobuchar's rise to political power for 20 years. I, like many others, think she wants to be POTUS. Clearly, attaining the vice-presidential slot in 2016 puts her first-in-line among Democrats to make her own presidential run, (whether or not Hillary Clinton wins).
Early morning, June 24th, Great Britain did what few polls, and politicians, predicted it was capable of doing: stand up for itself. "
With today's topic being failure and my personal relationship with that particular vengeful God, I have to note what happened right before I set upon...
This week, as Britain broke with the EU, some in the U.S. media broke with reality by continuing to normalize the unreal candidacy of Donald Trump. After a speech on Wednesday focusing on economics and attacks on Hillary Clinton, many pundits gave Trump the gift of analyzing the speech as if it had been delivered by someone other than the most dangerous and unstable nominee in modern history. "That's called the pivot," said Joe Scarborough, while Mark Halperin allowed that "the themes Trump chose... were well chosen," the speech "decently written," and that Trump is "better on prompter." In other words, focusing on weeds in a forest of demonstrable lies: the U.S., for example, is not "the highest taxed nation in the world." As noted by Politifact, which has debunked this claim three times, the U.S. is "nowhere near the top." Meanwhile, Democrats broke with House rules and staged a sit-in on the House floor to demand votes on gun control legislation. The effort was labeled a "publicity stunt," by Paul Ryan -- a break from irony from a man who endorsed Donald Trump.
