We need a green energy moon shot and a bold national mobilization on the scale of World War II. Morality is crying out for us to heed what Pope Francis calls "the cry of the earth and the cry of the poor" by becoming the next Greatest Generation.
Democrats' poor effort to talk to Latinos, much like Fox News' control of who is taken seriously in the debates, can only be summed up in the following: we will choose your candidate for you.
There's a strange divide in the United States today. On the one hand, Pope Francis is visiting us for the first time. He urges us to welcome Syrian ...
Political professionals and lobbyists often name a bill the opposite of what it does. The Clean Air Act, the Safe and Accurate Food Labeling Act, and the No Child Left Behind Act are all disingenuously named.
There's a clear pathway to the Republican nomination for Carly Fiorina after last week's debate, this week's poll results and the departure of Scott Walker from the Republican race. It begins with an irony

Once upon a time, promising to support whoever won your party's presidential nomination seemed like a harmless exercise in party loyalty. But that was when people manifestly unfit to hold the job rarely rose to the status of frontrunner in either major party. Those days are gone.
It was one of the highlights of last week's Republican debate, the moment when Carly Fiorina shared that she and her husband had buried a child due to drug addiction. All the bombast of the candidates fell away as this strong woman shared her private heartache.
Here are the questions that need to be asked of Fiorina. Has any company asked you to be its CEO after you left Hewlett-Packard? If so, which companies did so and why didn't you take any of those offers? If not, why do you think other companies haven't been interested in hiring you?
Let's end this pointless complaining and channel our energies into every facet of what it takes to win: registering people to vote, pushing out our message, raising money, and organizing and coordinating our efforts within this great big tent we call the Democratic Party.
Right now, the country deserves better than this array. Perhaps as the polls narrow down and the money dries up, we will hear better. But for now, it is really disappointing that this field of people who aspire to lead us looks so frail.
Carly Fiorina came, saw and conquered the GOP debate at the Reagan library. Donald Trump did a decent job and others kept themselves afloat. Jeb Bush is still going, Marco Rubio suddenly became a foreign policy wonk, Ted Cruz was well, Cruzy.
