This will work out to a total of about 10 minutes for each candidate over the life of the show.

Two of the possible Republican candidates are from Florida and are very popular there. That puts both Bush and Rubio into a favorable position for the nomination, and could help them both in the general election.

Love him or hate him, Donald Trump sure knows how to steal the headlines. Nobody took him seriously when he entered the race for the Republican Presidential ticket -- and yet here we are incessantly talking about Donald Trump.

Trump Card?

Much to the delight of political pundits, Democrats, and roughly one in five Republican voters, Donald Trump has taken the Presidential election season by storm, peddling his version of the "Straight Talk Express" from the Mexico border to the moneyed lobbies of his myriad properties and golf courses.

Sen. Bernie Sanders has spent a lifetime fighting against this exploitation and motivating people to take action. This is why the Friends of the Earth Action PAC enthusiastically endorses Sen. Sanders for President of the United States.

Remembering Chaney, Goodman and Schwerner: 50th Anniversary of the 1965 Voting Rights Act

Next week on the date of the anniversary of the signing of the Act, Republican presidential primary contenders will be holding their first TV debate. Think about this for a moment: On the 50th Anniversary of the Voting Rights Act, the Republican party today, along with Chief Justice Roberts' 2014 Shelby v Holder decision, has done more to dismantle the Act, than any other effort in recent memory.

Kids are always saying things that they shouldn't. Having three kids, sometimes I find myself in very embarrassing situations due to comments my children make. "Mommy, why is that ladies butt so big?" or "Mommy, where did that mans hair go?

Dear Sen. Sanders: It's Time To Address Racial Justice

Jordan Weiers

Sen. Sanders, there is one issue that you must progress greatly on if you wish to become the president that America needs in 2016. That issue is racial justice. Saying that racism exists in your next speech or adding #blacklivesmatter to the end of your next tweet is not enough.

People will validate all kinds of behavior with their attention, their "clicks," their dollars, and sometimes even their votes. That doesn't make said behavior OK. We each are supposed to have an internal moral compass.

Celebrity Apprentice fans, don't despair. Yes, your favorite show might be on hiatus now that NBC has severed its relationship with Donald Trump. But, should the apocalypse occur and The Donald becomes our nation's 45th chief executive, expect to see the program return ... to the White House.

Bernie Sanders, to put this another way, doesn't need a focus group or a poll to tell him what he ought to stand for. He already knows what he stands for, and he'll freely tell you exactly what that is.

Notice to the Voters: Donald Trump is the stall and you are the vics. Trump's role as the stall is to to get in the way of clear thinking, and hold your attention as long as possible with the hair, the hate, the beauty pageants and the clowning.

Most rich people are hidden out of view, like the Great and Powerful Oz hidden behind the curtain. We don't see them, we don't get to know them, and we don't learn who they are as people.

Donald Trump Is The Perfect GOP Spokesperson

Richard Zombeck

Donald Trump has turned out to be the perfect spokesperson for the GOP. He says the things they think but are, unlike him, too afraid to say in front of cameras and into microphones. One would think that comments like that would cost someone votes but instead, they've only made him more popular with the right.

On Monday, Hillary unveiled her economic agenda for strengthening the middle class. But looking at solutions like raising the minimum wage is only half the story. To evaluate the bigger picture, a review of Hillary's history with the banking industry is necessary.

Donald Trump Being Wrong About Everything and Unelectable Doesn't Make His Candidacy Insignificant

Seth Abramson | Posted 07.14.2015 | Politics
Seth Abramson

If the last three weeks of presidential politics have proven anything, it's that Donald Trump is one of the nation's first "metamodern" politicians. What this means is that Trump is neither sincere nor ironic, optimistic nor cynical, authentic nor false. Instead, he somehow manages to exist outside space and time.

What I've been noticing since this still-young campaign got started is that the tone of the photo coverage feels a little different. What I'm sensing is somewhat less irony and condescension, and more candid moments capturing the contrivance or just the trumped up spectacle.
