Emails released on July 31 by the U.S. State Department reveal more about the origins of energy reform efforts in Mexico. The State Department released them as part of the once-a-month rolling release schedule for emails generated by former U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, now a Democratic presidential candidate.
With millions watching, a governor vanishes! ...
Well, that was entertaining, wasn't it? We refer, of course, to the grand spectacle of the first Republican presidential debates, held last night on Fox News. Since this is all anyone's talking about in the political world today, we are going to follow suit and devote most of this column to our reactions.
I came away from last night's first televised Republican presidential debate feeling pretty disappointed in the lack of both questions and answers on climate change or clean energy. Maybe I shouldn't be so surprised.
I watched the debates last night with two questions in mind: Who would give Hillary Clinton a run for her money? And who would be a good and useful vice-presidential running mate? Both lists are surprisingly short.
The GOP Debate. It came, we watched, it blew our minds! Donald Trump is like teflon...nothing sticks to that guy. Marco Rubio was a surprise standout. Jeb Bush looked pretty old. Scott Walker was boring.
It is hard to believe that the roster of 10 men could land such a despicable debate. It is a shame for them, and a shame for their party. I congratulate the moderators on having found enough substance in their questions.
If the Republican circus of presidential candidates manages to persuade -- by the regular repetition of inadequate and ill-informed talking points -- that the route to future U.S. economic prosperity and national security is through ever more military belligerence abroad, then we are on the way to yet more wars.
Bernie Sanders can win--not just the primary, but the general. Democrats should back him, and ignore the arguments made by Barney Frank and others, who say giving Hillary the nod early is the only hope for victory in 2016.
Donald Trump is producing an endless field day of a political season for any psychologically-inclined media looky loo. The outrage and shock waves fo...
President Obama's announcement of final rules for his historic plan to reduce carbon pollution from power plants illuminated both the strength of his commitment to addressing climate change and the limit of his reach.
The move away from conventional politics doesn't represent a shift by the electorate towards political extremism, rather a growing frustration at the ruling political class. As Trump said recently, people are tired of "incompetent politicians." The political class may scoff, but it's Trump leading the polls.
I am becoming increasingly concerned that New York's Mayor may be losing touch with the normally genial, coalition-building side of his persona. His behavior of late could cost the City in the future.
If the ten Republican candidates on stage tonight all hold the exact same positions, is it really even a debate?
Former Texas Governor Rick Perry is confirming our long-held astonishment that he could be Governor of anything, let alone the 12th largest economy in the world. One day, and hopefully soon, Rick Perry will not seem like a blubbering doofus. That day is not today.
Hillary Clinton understands different times require different solutions. She has lived her life by a set of principles and convictions formed as a young woman who learned from her mother when life presents you with challenges you must work hard to overcome them to thrive.
