Saying that you have actually won more votes, more contests or more pledged delegates will not, in fact, make any of those things true. Even if you say it a lot, or in the form of angry tweets and Internet comments.
The travesty that happened in Nevada crystallized that a counteraction that needs to be taken in order to save our broken democracy. The Wild West th...
If the Democrats decide to run Joe Biden, it will be like a breath of fresh air in a very toxic campaign. They'll have a united party, Trump will be defeated and the world and we will be a much better place. I'm in with Biden.
We would all be better off in the long run if Senator Sanders would categorically reject these bullying tactics. If he doesn't, he will be the thief. He will have stolen unity from the Democratic Party and he will have robbed himself of respect and admiration. It's all up to him.
The state Democratic convention in Nevada Saturday devolved into a chaotic demonstration of party division and the emotional theatrics of candidate-centered movements.
"Thank you for the win!" Marco Rubio announced to his follower shortly after the polls closed in Nevada. "I'm honored and humbled that the voters who voted for me have now made me their Number One choice four times in a row!"
Donald Trump just won his third primary, taking Nevada with a commanding 46 percent of the Republican vote. If you take a look back at his campaign so far, you will see a long trail of wishful Washington thinking that was proven wrong and had to be tossed to the side of the road.
So, now, here we are. Trump most probably will get the Republican nomination. He will continue to be a bully and a political thug, much to the admiration of his followers. Evangelicals have shown that their love for God leans toward maintaining their view of God in a white-ruled country.
I personally don't believe Bernie Sanders will become a stronger candidate unless he begins to treat incidents like the Huerta accusation as an opportunity to affirm and to narrate the individual costs of the structural barriers that his campaign is devoted to dismantling.
In a day marked by spirited political disagreement, everyone involved came together to agree on one thing: this was not what democracy was supposed to look like.
With the populations of both Democrats and Republicans shrinking and the rise of the Fed-Up-Opted-Out Electorate, it would seem that if Sanders can battle even in closed primary states and caucus states, he can run the table in the open primary states.
The very ferocity and coordinated nature of the attacks on Sanders makes clear that the Democratic establishment views Sanders not merely as an annoyance, but as an existential threat. And he may be, at that.
If Sanders campaign relies on high voter turnout, he has a monumental challenge in front of him. He must truly transform politics in a way that has not been seen before in America.
Trump unapologetically uses profanity and sexist language at his campaign events. He loves it when his supporters get physical with his detractors, especially when they're black and brown people.
This past Saturday, February 13, I sat in a standing-room only Dougie J's Café, a burger joint off of the Las Vegas Strip. The walls were lined with ...
No, it wasn't just your imagination -- it was a very different message. Is that a good thing?
