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 many respects, I find Ted Cruz to be an even more troubling candidate than Donald Trump. Trump is a nativist and a xenophobe. But Cruz is something new on the American scene -- a religious zealot with a strong chance of becoming the nominee of one of America's two major political parties.
The primary season officially gets underway tonight, as Iowa voters brave the winter weather and head to the caucuses. This will give political wonks some actual hard data to discuss, instead of just opinion polling and sheer speculation, so it's a big day on the political calendar for us.
Voting is finally about to begin in the Republican and Democratic presidential primary contests. That's exciting. But it may not last.
At this point, both races are so close in Iowa that nobody really knows what will happen next Monday night. Will the polls turn out to be correct? Nobody knows. Will enthusiasm trump (pun intended) longtime voter turnout?
Elections take place in the now, not the long-term, especially in an ahistorical American era. And the now these days in this ADD/hyper-partisan media environment is short-term and savagely prone to character assassination.
Bernie Sanders will win the first four contests of the 2016 Democratic Primary for the same reasons he won the endorsements 170 economists, MoveOn.org and The Nation. Furthermore, Sanders dominated the latest Democratic debate because he's never had to evolve from a conservative vantage point, towards a progressive stance

Ten weeks -- ten weeks from today puts us in mid-March. And by the time we reach mid-March, we shall have a good sense of the outcome of the GOP presidential primary. Predictions are always a hazardous undertaking yet their allure may be irresistible.
As I move into my thirtieth year on earth and the New Year is upon us. It's dawned on me that I've accomplished the impossible and I feel compelled to draw attention to the lack of support that exists for southern youth
I am disappointed in my state. I am disappointed that by January 1, 2016 this may become a reality. Our state may quite literally start the new year by taking yet another step backwards.
For the Great Silent Disapproving Saints, be thankful you are invited anywhere... and keep your little lips collectively shut.
The Democratic primary race has stabilized and there simply hasn't been much movement at all in the past few months. The safe bet is on Hillary to win comfortably. Bernie has an outside shot but still a rather long one, and O'Malley has no chance whatsoever.
Whether it's a funky roadside motel or a clifftop former castle, there's nothing like a hotel with a little style. A property planted firmly at that sweet-spot intersection of considered decor, welcoming ambiance, and thoughtful service.
Honors, Gifted and Talented, Advanced Placement and International Baccalaureate programs can be an insidious way of maintaining racial segregation in nominally desegregated public schools.
