The fact is, conventions themselves, staged meticulously by strategists and media consultants, have become increasingly stale for outsiders, looking more like extended televised pep rallies for party activists, lobbyists, politics junkies and media celebrities. Is it time to scrap them?
By Nishat Kurwa and Robyn Gee As the convention center opened despite the delay of the official start of the RNC, we sought out youth vote expert Dr....
Remember Governor Romney, you didn't win the Republican nomination for president. Almost a dozen other Republicans, each taking his or her turn as the next "not Romney," lost it.
We've ranked the ten most miserable in ascending order of anticipated abject horror.
In recent years, there's been a major winner amid the businesses that gear up to take advantage of the Big Show. Morning Joe decamps every four years to a local eatery where Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski perch on director's chairs in the middle of a café and host the glitterati of politics.
Long a bouquet of shy wallflowers compared with evangelicals, Catholic bishops are at last joining the dance at the Republican party. The Catholic hierarchs are abandoning the restraint that once made them credible as moral leaders above the partisan fray.
In serious astrology, we interpret the relative position of the planets in the sky to the astrological charts of Obama and Romney, in order to forecast their behavior and who will win this presidential election.
There's an old joke about a hurricane approaching a town. As the flood starts to rise, the police chief drives by a man's house and tells him to get in the car and evacuate. "No," the man says, "God is good, I have faith, God will take care of me. I'll stay here."

Abandoning his former supporters, his former colleagues, and his president, makes him in some ways the personification of the Romney-Ryan-Ayn Rand glorification of self-interest. He's got his, America. Who cares what you got?
Enjoy yourself, hacks. You're living off the last dollars of your business. And for what? Tradition? Where has that gotten us? Please prove me wrong. In a week, show me the amazing reporting we couldn't have gotten if you weren't there.
Turns out, women are a key voting bloc in the upcoming election. It's up to us to demand credible commitments that address our concerns, as we get ea...
Right now, the two candidates are in a tight race, with Obama holding a slight advantage in the polls. Based on my bump predictions, I expect that the race will continue to be tight after the conventions but that Romney will hold a slight lead.
