I have been in denial through the years as I have witnessed the Clinton / Clinton shift to right wing foreign policies that parrot the fear-mongering drum beats perpetuated by the well-funded islamophobia industry. I say to Bill Clinton, listening to your speech last night where you romanticized your wife gave me some comfort in this political circus -- until you said what you said. And I'm not alone.

In the presidential election, the choice is clear. Clinton and Kaine are the gun sense champions. They agree we can reduce the too-easy access to guns in America -- and reduce gun deaths -- without infringing on anyone's rights. They understand that freedom means being able to pray, go to the movies, go to a dance club, without fearing for your life.
My wife, a schoolteacher, watched the DNC for hours today, tearing up as Hillary Clinton was nominated for president. But my thirteen-year-old daughter didn't share the same emotion, wondering what the fuss was all about. She's now used to hearing about the accomplishments of women. And that's a good thing.
I am an idealist and I fight for what I believe in, but I am also a realist. Either Donald Trump or Hillary Clinton will be elected president.
To see what the Trump/Clinton matchup really means, it's helpful to look not just at this week's Democratic convention but to another convention. Earlier in July, speaking to an energized crowd at the annual LULAC (League of United Latin American Citizens) gathering in Washington, D.C.
Research, including new work from our Human Cooperation Laboratory at Yale, suggests Trump may be successful precisely because of his hotheadedness and lack of carefully thought-out proposals. Being seen as uncalculating can make people trust you.
Even obsessive Star Wars fans have trouble describing Darth Vader's role within the evil Empire. He's not running the show. Emperor Palpatine is the one in charge. And at board meetings, Vader is simply one of several military high-ranking officials... although unlike the generals and lieutenants, Darth Vader doesn't really have an official title.
I have nothing against an inductive rather than deductive approach to political reasoning--that is, premised on observation rather than theory. In fact, I support it; the latter leads to a puerile dogmatism that rears its head on both the right and now, with troubling frequency, on the left as well.

I used this cartoon for when Hillary won Iowa, oh, so many months ago. Now it means even more since she has won the Democratic nomination. The first...
If a company is done with an employee, guest workers often find themselves stranded in the U.S. without a job. After five years as an H-1B, employers are required to start paying social security, so the worker becomes less attractive. When the job is over, so is the visa, making them into illegals. Their staffing company may h
The Democratic National Convention is featuring not only many of politic's biggest names, such as President Obama, First Lady Michelle Obama, and former President Bill Clinton, but also Hollywood luminaries. A dozen A List celebs - including starlets Lena Dunham, Demi Lovato, Chloë Grace Moretz, Katy Perry, Eva Longoria, Alicia Keys, and more - will speak or appear in Philadelphia in support of Hillary Clinton and the Democrats.
Clinton must present a strikingly different message to the one delivered last week by GOP presidential candidate Donald Trump. To do this, her speech should be short and sweet, in sharp contrast to Trump's rambling, "It's-Always-Darkest-Before-It-Gets-Pitch-Black" hooey.
Instead of preying on the fear of the nation, Obama focused her speech around two people. No, not Clinton and Trump, but Sasha and Malia Obama.
