Let's all keep Kalief Browder's name and sacrifice alive. As Black History month starts. Let's add Kalief Browder's name to the list of heroes who died so that others might live a better life.
We have serious doubts that we'll see Trump at any future debates -- after all, if he can blow them off with impunity, why would he subject himself to them in the first place?
Donald Trump bragged that he could shoot someone and still win the nomination. But he's about to find that skipping the Fox News debate might actually be more costly to his campaign, especially if his followers see it as an insult or cowardice.

For too long, campaign-finance-reform advocates have been patient dupes. If Secretary Clinton thinks she can coast to the White House with Obama-style winking and nodding, let's hope she continues to "feel the Bern."
I blame John McCain more than anyone else for the fact that Donald Trump is the clear frontrunner of the Republican pack right now. McCain's pick of Palin as running mate truly set the stage for where the GOP finds itself now.
The Bush v. Gore case damaged the credibility of the court and knocked down trust in the institution. Determining Cruz's eligibility early on, no matter how ridiculous or politically-motivated is the argument, saves us from another divisive campaign that eats at the trust and credibility of our institutions.
Despite his best efforts to brush the issue off, all of this has to be unsettling for Ted Cruz. Perhaps he can reach out to President Obama for some advice.
After claiming a special expertise in foreign policy, GOP presidential wannabe Marco Rubio finds himself under fire because of his no-nothing, neoconservative tendencies. He's responded in the usual way for someone whose policies would keep America perpetually at war: accuse his critics of being "isolationists."
Trump has surprised all by maintaining his lead. But Frum and Alter agree that: A) the Republican Party will splinter if he's chosen, and B) Cruz is too ideologically rigid for general election. So GOP has to pick its poison. Also: Not hard to explain Dem schadenfreude over whether Cruz is a natural born Canadian.
Now that the primaries are getting a lot closer, some are doing mental pretzel-bends to rationalize their gut feeling about Trump's inevitable loss (since their gut feeling can't possibly be wrong, of course.)
Given the ever-increasing mobility and interaction of people of all nationalities, the odds of even more perplexing scenarios will only multiply in the future, so wouldn't it be a good idea to clarify once and for all the meaning of "natural born citizen"?
Conventional wisdom is that Trump and Hillary will get nominations, but the numbers currently show that Sanders is the main contender.
The phenomenon of Trumpism remains ascendant in the Republican Party, though the paunchy bully boy has yet to win a vote.
