Like it or not, Trump has beat all rivals for the Republican nomination before the convention has even started. Just about everyone, except perhaps ...
Trump only likes veterans when he thinks they can give him PR cover -- like when he needed a reason to duck a debate moderated by Megyn Kelly, leading to his sham fundraiser for veterans.
Just as America's veterans organization are coming together to demand better government protection against deceptive and abusive practices by for-profit colleges, Senator Joe Manchin (D-WV) seems to want to move in the opposite direction.
PUMAs, for those who have forgotten the 2008 Democratic primary race, were the supposedly-numerous Hillary Clinton supporters who refused to back Barack Obama. The name stood for "Party Unity My Ass!" which was also their rallying cry. This year, they may be replaced by the "Bernie Or Bust!" crowd, or (to coin a neologism) the BOBs.
Can we all just take a deep breath? I'm speaking to many Democratic voters as well as the bulk of the mainstream media here, just to clarify. Because far too many seem to currently be going off the deep end. But from where I sit, this is an overreaction to a very short-term situation.
If the Democrats decide to run Joe Biden, it will be like a breath of fresh air in a very toxic campaign. They'll have a united party, Trump will be defeated and the world and we will be a much better place. I'm in with Biden.
Perhaps our memories are too short. We need to return to that moment in Ames, Iowa. When you disrespect veterans who made the greatest sacrifices for our country, you are unfit to serve as commander-in-chief of the United States Armed Forces.
The question for many Republicans now is how can they embrace a candidate who is not a true conservative, and whose extensive use of personal attacks has dragged the campaign into the gutter?
Whither America? Whither the conscience and soul of America? A campaign based on negativity leavened with bombastic claims without details of how we...
It's been a pretty momentous week in the history of American politics, folks. The Republican Party is going to nominate Donald Trump to run for the highest office in the land. Politics and entertainment are now one.
Massachusetts voters, like voters in all "safe states," should have votes of equal weight as those voters who are fortunate enough to reside in "showdown states." The present Presidential voting system is riddled with inequities. Sadly, "I'm from Massachusetts: My Vote Doesn't Count."

Previous to the recent New York primary, which Hillary Clinton won handily, the same 2008 dynamic was at play. And that is why she showed anger against the Sanders campaign, its mucking up of her march to history.
Hillary Clinton herself has repeatedly stated that she's not a natural politician, contrasting herself to Bill Clinton and Barack Obama. And there are certainly skills associated with politicians that they have in more abundance than she does.
Many Ukrainians expect America and Europe to save them. Suggest that they are living a fantasy gets you tarred as a blatant fool and Russian stooge. Yet Ukraine shouldn't waste time posing as a fairy tale maiden in distress waiting for rescue by the Western knight in shining armor. Kiev risks ending up as a failed state.
Ensconced in his aerie in Trump Tower high above Fifth Avenue, Donald Trump has been poring over a copy of Doris Kearns Goodwin's Team of Rivals, searching for ideas how he could emulate "the political genius of Abraham Lincoln."
