For those turned off by my considering anything other than the issues, I can't help you. And for those who were hoping I'd bash either of these Democrats, well, I can't help you either. As of now, one of these two will be the Democratic nominee (could Joe Biden shake up the race? I doubt it, but one never knows). I would be happy and proud to work for and vote for either Hillary or Bernie in the general election.
If you just woke up from a coma and read only the past week's headlines, you'd be wondering when Clinton will be scheduling her concession speech, as she prepares to exit the race. That this is patent nonsense seems to have escaped everyone.
Many thoughtful progressives in the Democratic Party, myself included, are suffering from a feeling of helplessness these days. We believe the Party is headed for defeat under the banner of Hillary, whose poll numbers are already not looking good. We fear disaster but have not seen a better alternative.
As Joe Biden polls family and friends about entering the presidential fray, he's getting two kinds of advice -- personal and political. The personal is about his life, his values and what he can give to his country. The political is about Hillary Clinton's vulnerability.

If this election is going to be about who connects the best with economically frustrated voters, Joe Biden might have the advantage. He is a lunch bucket guy who never gave a one-hour speech for $250,000. He rode the Amtrak to Delaware every night to be with his family instead of partaking in the inside-the-Beltway culture.
So welcome to the modern political age of the anti-hero, kicked off in recent times with the impossible 2008 candidacy of Barack Obama. Remember him as the compelling, anti-Establishment voice that spoke of hope and change? Sometimes the anti-hero or anti-leader breaks through. Maybe we will see it again in next year's election cycle, a cycle that could be led by another "impossible" candidate.
Being authentic and true to myself was my decision and now I live in my own truth. My sisters and brothers lets strive to be the best citizens we can be and show our communities we are just people trying to live in our own truth.
Emails released on July 31 by the U.S. State Department reveal more about the origins of energy reform efforts in Mexico.

Have I taken biblical passages out of context? Perhaps. But who gets to decide context? Some Christians would deny that Obama is a Christian by quoting other biblical passages. For instance, Obama accepts the latest scientific advances, even if they conflict with the Bible.
The Democratic Party needs a horse race for its presidential nomination for 2016. They require the energy that a serious multi-candidate field brings to the electoral cycle. Primary campaigns, after all, ought to do the following things for a political party.
This will work out to a total of about 10 minutes for each candidate over the life of the show. Sounds more like an extended high school musical audition than any sort of serious effort to identify the policy proposals and positions, and test the temperament, of the persons now seeking the presidency on the GOP side.
The time has come for Joe Biden to run for president. Biden can give Hillary a run for her money, beat up any Republican challenger in a debate, and come out victorious. Joe Biden could just be our next president. I hope he decides to find out.
