For those readers who weren't alive (or old enough) to experience the 1960s, this week we had somewhat of a history lesson, packaged as a Democratic debate. Part of why this happened is that the Democratic presidential campaign has entered into a "convince the minority voters" phase.
No one today would challenge the assertion that the United States is currently facing a plethora of key foreign policy challenges in geostrategic hots...
The dangerous water consumed by residents of Flint, MI is the canary in the coal mine of our nation's crumbling infrastructure. Poisoned water endangers the health or millions of Americans, especially children, and jeopardizes state and national economic vibrancy.
Democrats are down to a head-to-head contest, which was on full display last night. Both Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders made their respective cases fairly well, and the jostling between them for position was notable.
Bernie Sanders is not a Democrat and has never been one and if he becomes the Democratic nominee at the head of the ticket Democrats on the ballot below him from school board to U.S. Senate will be running for the hills.
Bernie knows his promises of free college and single-payer healthcare, which he says can only happen if you join his revolution, won't happen. Maybe it's time you voted for your own interests as a woman.
In Massachusetts we're proud of our state's role in "inventing America." What is a surprise, though, is how our democracy continues to turn a blind legislative eye to the daily struggles with discrimination faced by our transgender fellow Bay Staters.
A free trade agreement (FTA) expands economic opportunity in foreign markets for American workers and businesses, while doing the same for their foreign counterparts in our market.

Just as Colorado's GOP State Chair Steve House is telling his fellow Republicans to talk more about education and less about guns, GOP Senate candidat...
The choices we make now -- whether we move our economy towards clean energy or deepen our dependence on dirty fuels -- will have huge repercussions for our children and grandchildren. It's bad enough to contemplate our kids asking us why didn't try harder to solve climate change.
As the Co-Chair of the Congressional Caucus on Foster Youth, I have time and again seen the power of positive mentorship. With encouragement and opportunity, many of the roughly 424,000 children in America's foster system go on to lead successful lives.
We have serious doubts that we'll see Trump at any future debates -- after all, if he can blow them off with impunity, why would he subject himself to them in the first place?
For too long, college students have suffered in silence in the face of these attacks, hurt by a culture that encouraged these crimes to be swept under the rug. This is an epidemic and a stain upon our nation -- and it is long past time that Congress took action to address it.
Colorado's Republican Senator, Cory Gardner, spent a good chunk of his 2014 election campaign telling us that the Life at Conception Act was really nothing more than a symbolic statement, when, in fact, it is federal personhood legislation that would ban all abortion, even for rape.
As a Norwegian, a friend of United States, and a former employee of the American Embassy in Oslo, I am deeply concerned about the situation. Norwegians expect more from our most important ally, and we are right to do so.
