The Marijuana Policy Project came out with its report card for 22 presidential candidates and hopefuls and the headline is that no one is sticking their neck out very far when it comes to the legalization of marijuana or the loosening of federal pot laws.
The political dissent Chaffee displayed in the U.S. Senate was not only courageous, it showed a level of sophistication and understanding of international events that is sadly lacking among the current crop of presidential contenders.
Instead of talking about if a non-Clinton candidate can win, or "move Clinton to the left," let's talk about how a strong and unified message on climate action can clear the way for more bold leadership on this issue, from both sides of the aisle.
There's only one candidate who so far has been either ignored or ridiculed by the majority of the American media during his entire campaign. He is a candidate with firm values and authentic determination. That candidate's name is Bernie Sanders -- and he could, and should, be the 45th President of the United States of America.
Hastert shocking... but Alter recalls how he sleazily pocketed millions when legislation enhanced his private property. Alter-Matalin debate how Pope wants to phase out fossil fuels while many Catholic Republicans are in big oil's pockets. Then: Is O'Malley Hart and Hillary Mondale? Is Obama Jew-ish?
Should Americans join the military if the next commander-in-chief of the armed services is an arrogant, ignorant, irresponsible, war-happy hawk? Many of America's best and brightest join the armed services. But with the U.S. constantly at war, joining is a life or death decision, dependent on the judgment of whoever sits in the Oval Office.
At a time when Clinton's Democratic rivals are exploiting a dip in her approval numbers, Clinton should be going on the offensive as the candidate fighting for full equality during a civil rights movement of our time.
