America doesn't need its local party bosses back. But what Republicans need are some semblance of party control. Why is this important? Because without party control, there is disorganization, which will make it hard to form a cohesive party platform.

Mike Huckabee would be a terrible president. Just look at his nearly 11 years as governor of Arkansas. Mike Huckabee is bad for the Republican Party. I stuck my neck out four years ago as the first openly gay candidate to ever run for president and I ran as a Republican.

Sunday Roundup

Arianna Huffington | Posted 10.31.2015 | Politics
Arianna Huffington

This week, the nation once again survived an onslaught of goblins and ghouls. I'm talking of course about Wednesday's Republican debate. Candidates, campaigns, and RNC chair Reince Priebus all chided the moderators for not focusing on substance. I assume they are talking about substance like deporting 11 million people, taking health insurance away from 25 million Americans, or pursuing massive tax cuts for the rich. Perhaps they mean Trump's tax plan, which would cost $10 trillion over 10 years. Or maybe it's Carson's "tithing" tax plan that would pay for only 28 percent of estimated government spending. If "substance" means forcing candidates to account for the real world consequences of their proposals, then perhaps the candidates should be thankful for the absence of substance. Because those consequences would be much scarier than anything any of us saw on our doorsteps last night.
