Most of the politicos who were paying attention to the P.U.M.A. movement of 2008 had then dismissed us as merely being sore-loser, tantrum-throwing Hillary supporters -- scorned voters seeking revenge by not voting for Barack Obama in the general election.
Every four years, as the snow flies, politicians who would be President come storming into caucuses, with reporters in their wake. And it can be hard work. Covering nominating conventions entailed four long concentrated days.
The final GOP debate was scheduled for March 21st in Salt Lake City, the first sans-Rubio showdown after a big March 15 primary battle. But when Donald Trump decided he wanted to sit it out Wednesday, Ohio Governor John Kasich dropped out as well, prompting debate host Fox News to cancel it entirely.
What many expected to be a coronation for establishment candidate Hillary Clinton has morphed into a pitched battle for the soul of the Democratic Party. Despite all the corporate media hype to the contrary, the long slog to the Democratic nomination is just getting started.
For some reason, we normally stop talking about caucuses vs. primaries after Iowa, but there are others. In theory, you might not assume that the diff...
Theoretically, all of these later winner-take-all states could offer an opportunity for any of the top three candidates to catch fire and challenge the leader, but only if the field has been cut down to no more than three by early March.
In a day marked by spirited political disagreement, everyone involved came together to agree on one thing: this was not what democracy was supposed to look like.
The very ferocity and coordinated nature of the attacks on Sanders makes clear that the Democratic establishment views Sanders not merely as an annoyance, but as an existential threat. And he may be, at that.

Week of 2/1/16 to 2/14/16 Twitter polls have become all the rage and I am continuing to take full advantage of them by boldly engaging the public o...
As the election year wears on, you can expect Republicans to blame the economic slide on the Obama Administration and the Democrats. You can expect Hillary Clinton to intensify her attacks on Bernie Sanders as the candidate of tax increases and big government. And you can expect the economic anxiety that drives the Trump and Sanders campaigns only to grow. On the GOP side, why are Republican elites so terrified of Trump? Let us count the ways. First, he doesn't need their money. So all the billions that were set to buy the election are suddenly like the worthless Marks of Weimar Germany. Second, it becomes clearer every day that Trump isn't a conservative. He's an anti-Wall Street, anti-foreign populist. And anti-foreign doesn't necessarily mean more interventionist. At the most recent Republican debate, he actually said that he would have voted to impeach George W. Bush over the invasion of Iraq.Trump finally overreached.
No, it wasn't just your imagination -- it was a very different message. Is that a good thing?
For decades now, each of the political parties have been paying more attention to those who fund their political campaigns than to the plight of those who cast the ballots, and now they are reaping the whirlwind.
I'm dying to know how many of you are seriously going to move to Canada when someone you don't like becomes our next president. Are you really moving to Canada?
