Chris Weigant

Many are now pointing out that Warren's elevation pretty much assures she won't be running for president in 2016, but then we never really believed she would run in the first place. At this point, she'll be much more effective within the Senate Democrats.

Aryanna Prasad

You can't change what you are, Governor Jindal. I can't either. We must embrace our identities rather than asking people to look past them. If you ask people to respect -- not merely accept -- your Indian identity, perhaps we can build toward a Louisiana that isn't built off of racial prejudice.
