We wanted to know what our readers thought of Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton's divergent foreign policy platforms, and, well, their distinctly different styles. Putin's role in American foreign policy, we've learned, is a litmus test for how American voters view these candidates.
It's no secret that Hillary Clinton is more hawkish than President Obama, or that she is the favorite of the foreign policy establishment. But if she gets the Democratic nomination and wins the November election, she would be well advised to seek broader counsel in constructing her foreign policy.

In this season of presidential electoral politics, there is much going on, but one of the most disturbing things is the massive amounts of money being spent by the presidential hopefuls. This, while even the people most clamoring for relief and change are voicing their anger over having been forgotten and ignored, is an irony not to be ignored.
Despite all of the noise going on before the Democratic and Republican conventions, if we listen inside and search for the good thoughts of your particular choice candidate who speaks to your heart, we'll all find the way to the right choice for president. That inner guidance will show the way.

I can now say I have felt the Bern, from beginning to end. I have seen how the Bernie revolution began and I have also seen it entering the homestretch of campaigning during the primary season, one short week before California and a few other states become the last to vote.
Our country has fallen into a tailspin of poverty and inequality. In my home state of New Jersey our poverty rate is the highest it's been in 50 years. Since 1980, only New York and Connecticut have outpaced the growth of New Jersey's income inequality.
American politics already delves into every aspect of a candidate's life. Do we really need to pry into personal tax returns as well? And what do we really learn when we do? Not much.
What's really bothering me is how much Hillary bashing is coming from you, Bernie lovers; from people whose opinions I admire, from folks who've spent their lives creating a better society.
Nothing has stopped him. Not reason, not common sense and certainly not a never-ending string of bigoted remarks, false statements or outlandish policy proposals. Is there absolutely nothing that Donald Trump could do or say that would cause Americans to turn their backs on him?
The words "Treasury Secretary Carl Icahn" might send shivers up many spines. But the controversial corporate raider-turned-shareholder-activist appears to top Donald Trump's list for the nation's most powerful economic post if he captures the presidency in November.
This Presidential election is at a pivotal moment when we cannot allow divide and conquer to push us back further and lose many of our gains. If we don't wake up now, we will look back at this time period and realize that this is when we were effectively silenced.
The cold wind of intolerance, authoritarianism, and nationalism is blowing across America and Europe. The unexpected rise of Trump as the presumptiv...

The Sanders campaign is mounting a last ditch effort to persuade most of the 712 super-delegates (541 of whom have already declared for Clinton) to reconsider, on the premise that Sanders has the better shot at beating Trump. They're increasingly in a go-for-broke mood. Many Sanders supporters are far more militant than Sanders himself, and some are openly expressing the hope that Clinton will be indicted for some aspect of the email dust up. That seems highly improbable. However, Clinton has been unable to catch a break. The theme of her campaign has been experience and competence, but her improper use of a private email server suggested neither. It gives Trump a huge opening to challenge her honesty and probably signals a further decline in voter trust in Clinton.
