It is wonderful to be back in Nevada and at Rancho. I am delighted to be joined by a number of young people who are going to talk with me, and all of you, about their lives and their stories, particularly immigration.
It's interesting to note that during his 2012 campaign, Romney often distanced himself from the campaign press and provided limited access, the same allegations being made against Clinton this year. But the way the press covered the two media strategies stands in stark contrast.
My mother once told me a girl's reputation is worth her weight in lipstick and I believed her. Not so much for boys, I guess. If Donald Trump is a...
What Republicans are trying to do is make sure that the Iran deal, if it cannot be stopped, is a "one-off" -- that it doesn't lead to broader conclusions about what we can accomplish by pursuing diplomacy and preventing war.
Wall Street and the Koch brothers have an agenda for America that, unless you are a top executive of a powerful corporate conglomerate, won't work out very well for you. The Democratic Party must embrace a progressive populist economic agenda if it wants to offer a winning alternative in 2016.
Bernie Sanders doesn't need the money of billionaires, since most likely they'd be 'wasting' money on donating to his campaign. After all, Sanders is quoted in the Washington Post as saying things that no other politician in America would dare utter during an election cycle.
In the 2016 presidential general election, which voters will ultimately determine victory?
House Speaker, John Boehner remains guarded about Pope Francis' upcoming visit. "We're walking on eggshells here," says Boehner, "If we let the Pope address Congress with Jumbotrons on the Mall, next thing you know, we're going to have to give equal time to the Evangelicals, the Seventh Day Adventists, and, lord help us, the Grand Imam."
Hillary Clinton won't propose reinstating a bank break-up law known as the Glass-Steagall Act - at least according to Alan Blinder, an economist who has been advising Clinton's campaign. "You're not going to see Glass-Steagall," Blinder said after her economic speech Monday in which she failed to mention it. Blinder said he had spoken to Clinton directly about Glass-Steagall. This is a big mistake. It's a mistake politically because people who believe Hillary Clinton is still too close to Wall Street will not be reassured by her position on Glass-Steagall. Many will recall that her husband led the way to repealing Glass Steagall in 1999 at the request of the big Wall Street banks. It's a big mistake economically because the repeal of Glass-Steagall led directly to the 2008 Wall Street crash, and without it we're in danger of another one.
Could Hillary Clinton really be in trouble in the Democratic presidential primaries against a self-described socialist senator from tiny Vermont? She could. But not yet.
This multilateral negotiation, which was started by the George W. Bush administration, has always been about Iran's nuclear program and nothing else. It's not about Syria. It's not about Yemen. The Iran deal will not make you look five pounds thinner, as Gil Scott-Heron might have said.
Republicans ought to be ashamed for using tragedies to advance their political agenda that can only promote an increase of hate crimes against brown-skinned people.
Disappointingly, but perhaps not surprisingly, the many candidates vying for the GOP nomination have not come out in support of paid family leave
What we don't need are right-wing politicians (particularly those running for president) who see people receiving Social Security, Medicare and disability benefits as malingerers whose economic security can be put on the chopping block.
One wonders what a Republican like Roosevelt would make of a Republican like Governor Walker. Roosevelt believed in democracy and the power of government to bring about change and progress.
In describing his economic agenda last week, Republican president candidate Jeb Bush said that "people need to work longer hours." While he quickly tried to walk this one back, there can be little doubt that Mr. Bush meant what he said.
