At our Election Night party, my friends and neighbors gathered their daughters, sat them on the couch, and psyched up the under-8 crowd by shouting "y...
Even now, in the last days of this horrendous campaign, we're amazed by fervent assertions coming from some progressives about Donald Trump. Here are three key myths.
Donald Trump has a new answer for why he's about to lose in a landslide. It's all a vast left-wing conspiracy. No, really.
To be sure, ours is an era marked by big data. Never before have everyday citizens, governments, companies, and journalists had access to such massive...
Reflecting on my past year as a Global Health Corps fellow, I wanted to talk a bit about identity, ideology, and social change. Although this is my personal narrative, I believe that shrinking our identity and moving past ideology as much as one can are key steps to maximizing the positive impact that we have on the world.
Donald Trump now suggests that he will be defeated in a rigged election, but with prominent businessmen, independents, and Republicans, including Michael Bloomberg, Mark Cuban, Henry Paulson, Brent Scowcroft, and Richard Armitage declaring their support for Hillary Clinton, and with almost daily gaffes by Trump, one might think that the Republican ticket has almost zero chance of success even in a fair election.
If there is a single key to understanding what motivates Donald Trump -- that is, other than his extreme narcissism -- it is his determination to avoid, at all costs, the pain of humiliation.
Although we progressives don't like to contemplate the prospect of a Trump presidency, it would be wise to at least be prepared for such an even...

Whatever complaints one might have about the economic policies favored by Democrats over the last 50 years, no one outside the American Enterprise Institute and Paul Ryan's office seriously believes that Republican economics have been better for the white working-class.
Over at CBS, Will Rahn has a go at libertarians. He calls Libertarian presidential candidate Gov. Gary Johnson a "bit of an oddball," but never actually explains why.
Pretty much every pundit in the mainstream media got down on their knees and thanked a recent poll which showed Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton neck-and-neck in three key swing states this week, because they truly want this gravy train to continue.
It's been a pretty momentous week in the history of American politics, folks. The Republican Party is going to nominate Donald Trump to run for the highest office in the land. Politics and entertainment are now one.
Have you ever noticed that some people have out of the blue events in their lives while other people have a more moderate life experience? In an astrology chart the planet that symbolizes these sudden unexpected events is Uranus, the so called cataclysmic planet.
Move over Nate Silver! The statistician and author of The Signal and the Noise: Why So Many Predictions Fail -- But Some Don't may have called 49 out of 50 states right in the 2012 US Presidential election. But today I note that my predictions for the 2014 mid-term elections were 100 percent correct.
