President Obama has nearly two years to make the rapprochements with Iran and Cuba irreversible. If he can do that, and bring about a ceasefire in Syria to boot, then his diplomatic legacy will be secure -- no matter what his successor does to reassert the worst kind of dumb power.
Since the Citizens United Supreme Court ruling five years ago, the influx of big money in politics has distorted Washington's ability to represent the people's interests over corporate interests.
You can count me as one of your biggest fans, and a huge supporter of your bid for the presidency. You've probably got some of the best, most highly paid political consultants planning your every move, but stop listening to them. I already don't like what I see.
Senator Rubio, you say we cannot go back to the leaders of the past. Your party would elect George W. Bush, Ronald Reagan, or Jeb Bush, instead of you today. Yes, yesterday is over. Unfortunately for you, tomorrow doesn't look so good.
History tells us that 2016 ought to be a Republican year since it's difficult for a political party to win a third consecutive term. But while history may be on the Republican side, the electoral map is not.
I am a strong supporter of Hillary Clinton for president, but here is my warning to her: American voters don't want to be sold a "new Hillary," which is reminiscent of an earlier politician whose handlers invented the term "new Nixon."
I see no one who can begin to match Hillary Clinton's qualifications for the presidency. So why not let the elephants outspend her while she demonstrates, once again, that money alone cannot fill the gap between a weak candidate and a strong one?
My favorite reality television series -- the U.S. Presidential Primary Season -- is about to begin with this weekend's expected announcement of Hillary Clinton's candidacy.
In one of the more surreal emails of the still-young 2016 presidential campaign, John Podesta, Bill Clinton's former chief of staff, sent a note to De...
It struck me that if indeed America delivers a battle between its contemporary political aristocracies, the Bushes and the Clintons, that the challenge for Hillary will be to overcome comparisons not with her Republican rival but with her peripatetic global do-gooding husband.
You can tell it's been a slow week in politics, when we're wasting paragraphs on such trivia. But that's life here at the meager beginnings of the 2016 campaign trail. It's April, after all, and we've only got two announced candidacies, officially.
It's finally here. You-know-who is going to do you-know what. You don't know? Take our latest Week to Week news quiz and find out. Here are some rand...
At Credible we are writing about how the 2016 presidential candidates would affect student loans and the financing of education for students and ...
With all of this talk of privatization ramping up, now is the time for Hillary Clinton and other Democrats to knock the idea down. Veterans will be watching.
Republican White House hopefuls have received better, more sympathetic press coverage than Hillary Clinton, whose page-one coverage to date has been almost devoid of positive Times treatments.
This was a strong and welcomed statement from the Obama Administration. I just wish that the president would apply this sentiment to the "religious freedom" provisions maintained by his own administration.
