While both candidates had very different stress responses toward each other and toward the issues through the debate, both were hitting their individual emotional highs and lows and both were able to find their balance.
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...
One has to be careful, wise and know how to delicately appeal to the tastes of the people. Trump can do none of this. And if we open the provisional to reveal the real when it comes to this election, we see the horrors of the untrained mind alone. Only together with reason can the untrained mind bloom.
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.
In Monday's debate, Hilary Clinton pledged to spend $275 billion investing in America's infrastructure. Donald Trump doubled down, promises lots mor...
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.
Looking at Hillary Clinton the other day at the debate gave me great pleasure! Listening to her did too, by the way. We had a case of almost glowing 'Mature Beauty' here. Very fetching hair in an amazing color, soft lipstick, sparkling blue eyes!
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.
