What pragmatic liberals like me are calling for is not surrender on the part of progressives, but political maturity. Hillary is far better than any GOP candidate. If she is the Democratic nominee, those who don't want to see a century of reforms decimated should give her their vote.
Scott Walker's 2016 strategy is simple: He will seek to defeat Hillary Clinton by mobilizing the resentment of working-class white voters, male and female.
Walker's extreme ideological agenda prompted one million people in the state to sign petitions to recall him from office, and it was the Kochs who came to his rescue.
Scott Walker's budget creates a massive brain drain on one of the most prestigious state schools in America, all under the guise of giving the system "more autonomy"--also known as an attempt to pseudo-privatize another public system.
Two court cases next week will decide the future of Wisconsin campaign finance law, the independence of the Wisconsin judiciary, and will impact the future of presidential candidate Scott Walker. The stakes could not be higher, but the converging cases have garnered little national attention.
Wisconsin -- where workers have a deep and rich history of fighting for a voice on the job -- is the latest state to enact a law intended to sap them of their power and strength. With Gov. Scott Walker's signature, the right-to-work scam is now the law in Wisconsin.
Back in the day it was common to see large venues, sometimes there were whistle stops and maybe even balloons (and confetti). Much has changed in just a few short years.
History tells us that 2016 ought to be a Republican year since it's difficult for a political party to win a third consecutive term. But while history may be on the Republican side, the electoral map is not.
I see no one who can begin to match Hillary Clinton's qualifications for the presidency. So why not let the elephants outspend her while she demonstrates, once again, that money alone cannot fill the gap between a weak candidate and a strong one?
This is part of an ongoing series by Credible about how the 2016 presidential candidates would affect student loans and the financing of education for...
It hasn't gotten a lot of attention outside Wisconsin, but if you want to see what a President Scott Walker might try to do to an independent federal judiciary, check out what Governor Scott Walker is doing to the Wisconsin judiciary -- including through a crucial referendum vote Tuesday.
As long as there are civilian nuclear programs in the region there is the danger of nuclear proliferation. But a comprehensive agreement that effectively and verifiably constrains Iran's nuclear programs could have a positive effect on neighboring countries
Rather than passing redundant religious freedom laws, we ought to be passing anti-discrimination laws because the most beautiful example of Christian witness is to show kindness, love and acceptance to each individual in our midst -- to our friends and neighbors, to strangers, and even to our enemies.
Leaving aside whether you agree or disagree with any of this criticism (I think the Republican critiques thus far have been vague so far), the administration must realize that there is a very intense sentiment swirling around that Washington not only got swindled, but swindled in a way that will add more tension to its foreign relations.
While it is certainly not inconceivable that a younger candidate could clinch the Republican nomination, perhaps it is more likely that a young gun will be added to the ticket as a promising, invigorating VP. Either way, it certainly promises to be a compelling election season.
By simply adding sexual orientation and gender identity to the federal law, states and supporters will be able to pursue religious freedom legislation unencumbered by the belief that these laws will be used to discriminate against the LGBT community.
