It's an odd day indeed when a lifelong Republican finds himself in agreement with Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders. It's the very definition of "politics makes strange bedfellows."
Calling Florida is pretty easy, on both sides of the aisle. Hillary Clinton will dominate, continuing her sweep of the South. The big news here, however, is going to be Donald Trump beating Marco Rubio in his home state.
Latino Voters in Florida are looking for a President who will put Latin America as one of their top priorities when it comes to foreign policy. With that criteria in mind, there is only one person fit for the job: Hillary Clinton.
A President Trump would turn our country into a place where violence becomes a tool used by the government in order to maintain authority, just as it was, to cite the most egregious example, during the era of Jim Crow. We must not let that happen.
The constant media frame for the shocking-to-many success of Donald Trump and Bernie Sanders is that both campaigns represent the rejection of elites in favor of populism, albeit contradictory populisms of the right and left. Would that it were so simplistic.
This summer, Congress passed a trade bill that, for the first time, formally defines "Israel" as including Arab territories that are recognized by the international community as under foreign belligerent occupation.
The conduct of the Republican primaries makes Lord of the Flies look like a well-ordered society.
Trump is cultivating a modern day lynch mob that could possibly kill Americans in the coming days of this pathetic and depressing campaign. He has appealed to the worst in all of us and brought out the worst in Americans who had never been involved in previous elections.
Marco Rubio claims he is against government choosing winners and losers, but Rubio's support of Big Sugar in Florida and against proactive measures to veer away from climate change impacts is making losers of us all.
In an interview with CNN on February 8, Senator Ted Cruz said, "In my view, American boots on the ground should always be the last step, and we need t...
"I'm a unifier," said Donald Trump, the odds-on favorite to be the Republican Party's nominee. Commonly referred to as a divider, a bully, bombastic, someone who embraces scaremongering, is erratic, thin-skinned and a ticking-time bomb, I'm not sure it's conceivable that a statement from "The Donald" could be further from the truth.
The American people will have a clear choice this November, no matter who the nominees are. The Democrats are united in favoring expanding, not cutting, Social Security. The Republicans stand against expanding, and with the exception of Trump, for deep cuts to Social Security.
This time, the goal was not finding someone who could beat Trump to the 1,237 delegates needed for a first ballot victory in Cleveland in July, but instead simply to deny Trump a first ballot victory.
Republican voters face a bad choice. The Donald's shortcomings are manifest. Marco Rubio may be young, well-spoken, and attractive. But his foreign policy judgment is awful. If you want more foolish, costly, and unnecessary wars, vote for Rubio.
We had two Democratic debates and one Republican debate last week. The GOP one was shocking -- because nobody said anything shocking! Yes, that's truly how far the Republicans have sunk -- to the Sherlockian level of the dog not snarling in the night being the big news.
After the chaos of the 1968 Democratic Convention in Chicago, Senator George McGovern and his colleagues developed a series of reforms to the primary system, including getting rid of many "winner-take-all primaries" for his party.
