Without taking her eye off the ball, Hillary Clinton (D-NY) should immediately start campaigning against gridlock. Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) should nationalize the race for Congress on this issue. Same for Chuck Schumer (D-NY).
Well, wasn't that something? The fourth (let's not forget the non-epic Pence v. Kaine) shitstorm in lieu of statesmanlike debate in this showdown between the two most unpopular presidential nominees in history is done and gone.
Are you looking for a nonpartisan voter guide for the Ann Kirkpatrick vs. John McCain Senate race? One that will give you an accurate, no-spin compar...
Hillary Clinton wasn't as dominant against Donald Trump in comparison to the first debate, but her opponent with his unhinged responses that went all over the place convinced me that on the whole Mrs. Clinton won.
Donald Trump may be toast.
When The Donald rode down the escalator with an entrance that would make Wayne Newton blush, I laughed out loud, giddy with the thought that a whole n...
This will be shorter than usual, because vice presidential debates don't matter nearly so much, witness Senator Lloyd Bentsen's annihilation of Senator Dan Quayle in 1988 with his "Senator, you're no Jack Kennedy" reference to Quayle, yet George H.W. Bush still beat Michael Dukakis.
Political incorrectness is not why decent people feel revulsion at what Trump says and does. Decent people object because what he says and does is indecent, ignorant and wrong.
It is difficult for voters to keep track of the many legal and personal scandals surrounding Donald Trump, but it is easier to remember the many people whom he has insulted. Both pose liabilities for Trump's campaign for president, but perhaps ironically, it is the insults that are likely to do more damage than the scandals.
Washington, September 23, 2016. Power is an old game in this city, but a style in play last week made all others seem crude. Aung San Suu Kyi, the effective head of state of Burma, was in town, and in her presence, the American government performed at peak form.
History is about to be made at Hofstra University, and excitement is building to a crescendo among the school's nearly 11,000 students. On Monday evening, Democrat Hillary Clinton will face Republican Donald Trump in a presidential debate that will likely be the most-watched television program in U.S. history.
Endorsing Clinton would obviously be bold, politically risky, even treasonous to some. But this isn't your GOP anymore. Why hitch your wagon to Trump and align yourself with the ugliness, folly, and outright lies propping him up?
The media got played by Donald Trump this morning, once again. Picture Charlie Brown lying flat on his back, wondering why he keeps falling for the old kick-the-football bit.
No doubt Lauer, like many others in the media, feared being labeled "partial towards liberals," despite the absence of evidence that such a liberal media bias exists.
We all suffer from this curse of unequal bias as we witness false equivalency bleeding from national politics back into daily life.
Donald Trump going to Mexico could have had a certain "Nixon goes to China" flavor about it, and he actually was getting some good reviews for crossing the very low bar of "not totally embarrassing himself or his country" -- at least for the first few hours. Then he went to Phoenix, and Mr. Hyde came back out.
