To my friends supporting Sanders and O'Malley, we share common dreams and values that our Democratic nominee must fulfill. We need a Democratic president and a Democratic Congress to build on the progress that has been made.
If and when Bernie Sanders is brought down by the very party he is championing, the millions of Bernie supporters, especially young voters, will have to consider breaking off into a new political party that will make American history.
If one believes nay-saying conservatives: It's Obama's fault for Palin's son's PTSD, For hair loss, acne, and the sting of a bee. It's Obama's ...
How do women measure success? Is it by mothering and having a career? How do they carry out both forms of work to their satisfaction? What helps? Wha...
The power relationships in TPP will be great for factories in Vietnam, where 90,000 workers make Nike's shoes. TPP will be great for Hewlett-Packard, Intel, AMD, Dell, Apple and other electronics producers who use components from Malaysia, where 28 percent of workers in the electronics industry are subject to forced labor.
It's hard to feel sorry for Republicans, given that they control both sides of Congress and two-thirds of state legislatures. Nonetheless, in 2015 the GOP's rank-and-file get royally conned, not once but twice.
It's not funny anymore -- it's getting closer and closer to becoming reality. Donald Trump, leader of the Republican Party. Deal with it, everyone.

Republicans have succeeded in crippling much of government with their no tax raise mantra. This budget compromise will help current programs. But it doesn't cure the revenue problem.
It's probably due to the fact that I'm turning 80 next year, but I've been looking back on my life a lot lately. It was 50 years ago that I came to Washington as a young newspaper correspondent, 38 years ago that I became Vice President Mondale's press secretary, 21 years ago that I helped start The Hill, and ten years ago that I began writing for the Huffington Post.
Now that Rep. Kevin McCarthy has bowed out of the race to replace House Speaker John Boehner, there's only one logical choice to replace him: Washington Congresswoman Catherine McMorris Rodgers.

The clumsiness has been a hallmark of hearings on Capitol Hill, especially now that the Republicans are in charge. Committee members are more interested in the limelight than in persuading the television audience of any abuses requiring reforms, so that viewers might support a legislative remedy.
We see politicians alienated from the electorate who are inarticulate and inelegant in their language, not only unable to create the optimum sound bite on message, but mistake prone; in short, they are remarkably unqualified to appear before the camera.
