It is utterly ridiculous that Trump is throwing such a hissy-fit over Megyn Kelly, the Fox News host and debate moderator, merely because she asked him a question that he didn't like in a prior debate.
Sanders' key policy proposals would radically improve the lives of many African-Americans. In addition, Black Lives Matter activists have praised his racial justice plan, which details exactly how he would turn this country into one that "affirms the values of its people of color."
From the outside, the Des Lux Hotel bar doesn't look like much. No brightly-lit signs hang in the windows to draw in customers. It's location outside Iowa capital city's East Village separates it from the majority of this city's hangout spots. Seen through the windows, the bar's interior is dimly lit and inconspicuous.

Imagine you are in a room with 100 people. Ninety-nine people are white, two-thirds are 45 years or older, 57 are men, and more than half are born-again or evangelical Christians. Are you at the Oscars, a retirement seminar, a Rick Warren sermon or the Republican Iowa caucuses?
With the Iowa caucuses only seven days away, the Rand Paul campaign is working to secure students caucusing for their candidate. Cliff Maloney, 24, is the National Youth Director for the campaign. He has been working on an initiative to have 10,000 students turnout to caucus for Paul since September. Maloney said he is confident that they will reach their goal Monday, Feb. 1.
We hear a great deal about the presidential election, including how is running, how they are polling, and how much money they have raised. However, few understand exactly how we pick the leader of the free world.
As a speechwriter for CEOs and others, I thought I could help her -- I like Bernie, but I don't think he can win, and I do think she can -- so I wrote a speech that, if sincerely delivered, might turn her campaign around.
At this point, both races are so close in Iowa that nobody really knows what will happen next Monday night. Will the polls turn out to be correct? Nobody knows. Will enthusiasm trump (pun intended) longtime voter turnout?
If we're lucky, the day will come when we look back at the Iowa caucuses and the quadrennial carnival they inaugurate with the same embarrassed horror we now feel for duck-and-cover as a safety drill for nuclear war.
What the landscape of American politics has lacked since the summer of 1963 is a grassroots movement with enough momentum to force existing power structures to yield ground.
Thirty Chinese high school and college students are braving the frozen tundra of Iowa to learn about the United States' electoral process and the Iowa caucuses.
Iowa has a choice between one candidate who understands the reality we face in the world today and has the experience to handle it; and the other whose policies suggest he believes in an alternative reality and a record with a distinct lack of real accomplishments.
DAVOS, SWITZERLAND -- This week, while candidates "squirmished" in advance of Iowa, more than 2,000 global leaders gathered here for the World Economic Forum. The theme was The Fourth Industrial Revolution -- the coming era of automation and smart technology -- and what business can do to help meet the big challenges ahead of us. The dominant refrain was the need for business leaders to put purpose at the center of the definition of business itself. It's a shift, already underway, with the power to not only improve the world but also boost the bottom line. As Unilever CEO Paul Polman put it, "investing in the common good, investing in the long term, is a better investment than just your short-term self-interest." What came through loud and clear this year was a growing realization that companies that chase short-term profits at the expense of social responsibility won't last very long. It's not just a better and more enlightened way forward; it's the only way forward.
The most shocking discovery of my first six days in Des Moines was that Bernie Sanders, a Democrat, and Donald Trump, who is seeking the GOP nod, are the strongest Presidential candidates heading into the 2016 Iowa caucuses.
