It occurs to me that Bernie Sanders may not want to be President. Perhaps he knows in his heart that a self-proclaimed Socialist, even a Democratic Socialist, has no chance of winning in a general election outside of a few states with distinctly liberal tilts and a high percentage of college students.
Living in Iowa during election season is a bit like being the unpopular kid at school who just won two all-expense paid tickets to Disneyland: all of ...
With just hours left until Campaign 2016 finally leaves the Incessant Talking Heads status and goes to the voters, there is one data point that is as clear today as it was 10 months ago -- Hillary Clinton is the only candidate who is qualified and prepared to be president.
As the Democratic race has tightened, presidential hopeful Hillary Clinton has brought out the big guns; her husband, Bill Clinton.
With the Iowa caucuses around the corner, the election fever should ideally be catching up. Far from it. There is an apparent gloom looming large over the American electorate.
If you've watched the Democratic debates (I feel your pain if you've suffered through the rancor of the Republican ones), you've probably noticed something else about Bernie Sanders: he's tough, but he's not a gutter fighter.
The bad news for Cruz was that because Trump wasn't present to take incoming from all the challengers, Cruz became the target of attacks from most of the other candidates.
DES MOINES, Iowa -- Only 8.4 percent of American homes with TV sets watched last night's GOP debate at the Iowa Events Center, according to early da...
This week on the Daily Show, host Trevor Noah poked fun at Democratic presidential candidate Martin O'Malley for a question CNN's Chris Cuomo asked h...
As someone who has both crafted and professionally scoffed at headlines in many ways through many elections, I'd like to just reassure everyone, right now, that yes, your instincts are correct: most of the ones you'll see after the Iowa caucus will be absurd and should be ignored.
Trump's refusal to debate his Republican opponents in Monday's Iowa Republican caucus provided an unexpected spark of controversy and more evidence of a growing split within the Republican Party. Although Trump forwent the debate, candidates present wasted no time jabbing at the business mogul.
It's time for Iowa! Can you believe it? It is my first election season, and I cannot explain how excited I am to vote in the primaries and then in the...
I will vote for Hillary with my head and my heart. I will be hopeful that a woman who does think before she speaks is not completely perceived as "guarded," because a man who thinks before he speaks is called "thoughtful."
To Iowa? That sounds like travel not time. We know what the media means. Or do we? I live in Iowa. So, a few things I would like to say "on the way to Iowa" from one who is already here: Misconceptions about Iowa; Curiosity about a Caucus; Disbelief about Participatory Democracy; and Even the children, Especially the children.
Right now, today, there are hundreds of young, idealistic political operatives from both parties strewn across Iowa, committed to trying to make a difference in the upcoming and all-important Iowa caucuses. Unfortunately, in all likelihood, they won't.
