Even then there was a lot of speculation about whether or not he might end up on the Democratic ticket come 2016; he showed a lot of promise, not just due to his superb oratory skills but because of his remarkable life story and the accomplishments he had accrued in just a short amount of time.

Trump And The Teslafication Of America

The presumptive GOP candidate, Orange Julius Caesar, has turned us all into Teslas -- and by this I mean thanks to his divisive and often blatantly racist language, we have become a country of freewheeling autonomous killing machines.

So how about it Mr. President, why not leave office on solid moral ground and set your country up for a golden age by quickly easing the way for Bernie to take his rightful place as our next president.

The horrific terrorist attack in Orlando--and before that in San Bernardino, Brussels, and Paris-- exploded out of nowhere with the same terrifying destructive force as a missile strike from an almost invisible U.S. drone.

What No One is Saying About Hillary

The Hillary story I have yet to see is the one that explains how any woman could have possibly gained the political clout she has, without being the person she is. Anything less would have made the glass ceiling impenetrable.

Why #ImWithHer... Wait, Take a Moment and Listen

Hillary isn't shady. She's been shaded by decades of right wing attack campaigns against her that are specifically intended to make people question her worthiness, and yet she's still standing strong with more popular votes, delegates, and super delegates than Sanders.

Bernie, Hillary, and the California Dream

Marianne Williamson | Posted 06.02.2016 | Politics

The Sanders campaign must do more than simply remind Hillary of what needs to change; it must bear genuine political pressure on the system to make sure the changes occur. And the most powerful way to do that is for Bernie to win big in California on June 7th.

Trump Can't Be Stopped With Conventional Weapons

You can't expose Trump's beliefs because he has no beliefs. Shit flows out of his mouth on an ad hoc basis, crafted to rile up the crowd. And it works, because they don't know what he's saying, they just love the way he says it.

Anis Shivani

You, Hillarybots, went for someone who would be handily beaten by any Republican not named Trump or Cruz. You cannot argue that you made the safe electoral choice. You made the unsafe electoral choice, desperately wanting to preserve what your generation has already socked away, hidden from our prying eyes.

With Hillary Clinton's recent victory in New York, her path to becoming the first female nominee for the Democratic party has become much more clear, but her victory in New York wasn't the only vote that garnered major headlines in the last week.

Some of the air has begun to leak out of the Trump bubble, but the fundamental split in the GOP remains. Hillary Clinton's path to nomination narrowed after Wisconsin, spurring Bernie Sanders to greater efforts in New York, which is genuinely the Big Apple for both parties this year.

It was the first electoral test since Trump's disastrous nuke and abortion mistakes last week and shows that, unless he can reverse the damage, he may just have peaked. That will likely result in a hung primary outcome and a brokered convention where Trump is decidedly the least favorite.
