Donald Trump's name lends itself to all sorts of mashed-up words, but we find it doesn't really work with the big story of the week. British voters decided to take the so-called "Brexit" (or "British exit") from the European Union.

Dave R. Jacobson

There's nothing in the Constitution that requires term-limits for the Vice President of the United States. With that in mind, why isn't Vice President Joe Biden part of the mix when it comes to those being contemplated as possible running mates for former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton?

This was never an attack on Julián Castro personally. It is about the Department of Housing and Urban Development's track record of playing footsie with Wall Street in terms of distressed housing. And however great Secretary Castro is on other issues, this track record sure isn't great.

Hillary is no different from the Republicans, the Bernie or Bust folks say, and the same goes for Obama and the Democratic Party in general. Although I do believe Bernie would be the better nominee and president than Hillary, I firmly reject this false equivalency.

Calling for shame and charity in order to get our country to pay attention to poverty or the lack of mobility is old, and wrong. For 50 years, the stories from the war on poverty have almost singularly tried to shame us into addressing these issues, but, ultimately, they harm the cause.
