The major argument for free public college and university education is the same as for free public education in general: like the free public elementary, middle, and high schools already existing in the United States, free public higher education provides educational opportunity for all.
The country is in a fundamentally different place than it was 15 years ago when the Supreme Court handed George W. Bush the White House. If Kasich is able to win the Republican nomination -- that will be tough since GOP voters have no appetite for emotions other than anger -- his attempts at expressing empathy in the fall will be unconvincing when Americans learn about his record in Ohio.
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's speech claiming that Hitler had not planned to exterminate Jews until a prominent Palestinian cleric pressured him to do so, while outrageous, is consistent with the longstanding narrative of the right-wing government and its U.S. supporters.
Polls, fundraising and basic logic pertaining to recent Clinton scandals show Bernie Sanders winning the Democratic nomination. Nobody goes from less than 1 percent nationally to over 30 percent without serious momentum and unprecedented energy among grass roots supporters.
My mother on Facebook: There is nothing more frightening than a mom with a Facebook account on the loose with photos of you in compromising positions. From tips about 'packing a clean pair of underwear' to dating advice on your public wall, mom's can be a social media nightmare.
Clinton actually leads all Republican candidates in contributions from this industry. She has received over 40 times more money than Sanders has from individuals associated with Wall Street.
Given their typically unprolific publishing pace, The Atlantic and its subsidiary, Quartz, snuck in what amounted to a relative barrage of jabs at Bernie Sanders around midday on Monday.

Bernie is a real person, both inside and outside of the political arena. For Bernie, political expediency comes second to moral integrity. Like Carson and perhaps Trump, albeit more intelligently, Bernie mostly says what he thinks. Period.
America continues to struggle with racism. What has the Republican Party done in the last ten years to improve race relations? What will each of you do to improve race relations if you're elected president?
Today, regardless of lessons learned over the years, it is important that every young person understand that Hillary Clinton is one of the most important global voices on LGBT human rights in our time.
Former President Bill Clinton and House Speaker Newt Gingrich called out today's would-be government shutdowners as a bunch of sissies. Reminiscing about the differences between the shutdown of 1995 and a potential one before the end of 2015, the two former leaders of their parties called out today's players.
What has taken Clinton and Trump decades and billions of dollars in name recognition to accomplish, Bernie Sanders has done with grass roots organizing and fundraising. He is the only electable Democrat for president.
I can see Biden's point about solving the nation's problems: If you're working toward solutions, why call an advocate of a policy you oppose your "enemy," when "my good friend across the aisle" will do? My reservation is that speaking well of the other party can drain genuinely moral disputes of authentic moral authority.
