All we know for sure is that Ted Cruz dropping out of the Republican race has changed the Democratic race almost as profoundly as the Republican one.
Bernie Sanders defeated Hillary Clinton in Indiana on Tuesday. The Senator from Vermont cashed in on his overwhelming support from independent voters, who are allowed to participate in Indiana's open primary.
As it becomes clear to all but the most dedicated, and deluded, supporters of Bernie Sanders that Hillary Clinton will be the Democratic nominee, some in the Vermont Senator's camp have turned their attention to reforming the nominating process in the Democratic Party.
The presidential nomination race is finally getting closer and closer to being over. But it's not going to end quietly. The race is so close and in such contention, in fact, that presidential hopefuls on both sides are calling for a contested convention.
I will deeply miss President Obama. His will be remembered as one of the finest intellects ever to occupy the office. He's also hilarious; his performance at his final White House Correspondents Dinner was funnier than the vast majority of stand-up routines I've seen.
There's no guarantee that the enthusiasm, passion, energy, and sense of making history that was there for Obama will be there for Clinton. The red flag on this are the negatives. Trump has them in spades, but so does Clinton with two huge troubling differences.
Most of the politicos who were paying attention to the P.U.M.A. movement of 2008 had then dismissed us as merely being sore-loser, tantrum-throwing Hillary supporters -- scorned voters seeking revenge by not voting for Barack Obama in the general election.
When you are president, you often don't get a second chance. Fatal decisions send young Americans to war and often disastrously change the course of world events.
The State of Indiana, the State of the Campaign It was as if some blindfolded ISIS thugs were towering over a crouched Mike Pence. That's when th...
It is not my intention, for example, to pass any overall judgment of Hillary's hawkishness. That would require more detailed knowledge than I possess. But I do have a couple of observations to offer that, in my view, should lessen the weight of evidence for this characterization of Hillary as a superhawk.
Today, I'm offering up my own clip show as a retrospective for how we all got to where we stand today: on the brink of Donald Trump essentially wrapping up the Republican nomination for the highest office in the land.
At this stage in the 2016 race for President, Hillary Clinton is not just in a better position than Donald Trump according to polling data, but also because her primary battle is over, and his isn't.
Hillary represents timid incrementalism at a time when the people are restless for bold transformational change, and at a time when such dramatic change is needed to ensure our survival as a species. Fortunately, we have another choice.
It is clear that climate action and renewable energy development have become topics with considerable standing in the public and political discussion. Evidently, one of the major figures history will note for that change is President Barack Obama.
If we learned anything this presidential cycle, expect the unexpected, don't trust the polls or pundits, and a majority of Americans think are politics are broken and don't want an establishment candidate. One can only say good luck to Secretary Clinton.
