If there is a President Rubio or Cruz, then the right of same-sex couples to marry and the new right of equal dignity might not survive. Comments by presidential candidates about issues like same-sex marriage should be taken very seriously and not summarily dismissed.
As a senior in college, I can't say I'm the most qualified person to make a decision on whether race should play a factor in college admissions. However, based on my research and class discussions this semester, it is evident something needs to be changed throughout the country and more specifically here at the University of Delaware.
The Supreme Court's seeming willingness to dismantle diversity initiatives and, more specifically, affirmative action, on the basis of anecdotal information is infinitely disturbing.
There is no guarantee that the name on that ballot will be Hillary Clinton. She's already vulnerable in at least two of the first four states to vote, and if she loses both Iowa and New Hampshire then the rest of the country (including the media) will start paying a lot more attention to Bernie.
Stories help us make sense of the world. Life is messy and chaotic; if there's a point to it all, that point is sometimes very hard to see. We try to impose meaning on our lives by placing experience within a narrative frame. And if we're lucky, there's a big theme that gets developed as the story goes on.
It is more important than ever that we remember the mistakes of the past and honor those who fought against them at the time. One president took Mitsuye Endo's freedom, and that of thousands of other Americans.
Chief Justice Roy Moore of the Alabama Supreme Court is making national headlines again, and once again it's because of his disdain for the U.S. Constitution.

As the Supreme Court hears this case on Monday, that day will mark the beginning of a week of action to ensure that the public is aware of what's at stake: the ability of workers to stand up for themselves and for the people they serve.
Mr. Petus handed his official ruling, written on a napkin and witnessed by "Terry the Trucker," to his boss to be fed-ex'd to the State Capitol first thing Monday morning. The effect of Mr. Petus's ruling was not immediately clear.
The chief justice of the Alabama Supreme Court, Roy Moore, is once again trying to ban marriages for gays and lesbians in his state, handing down an order directing probate judges to stop issuing licenses.
You can't have progressive government without leaving skin on the sidewalk. That's the essence of Professor Jedediah Purdy's jeremiad against Professor Ilya Somin's recent book, The Grasping Hand: Kelo v. City of New London and the Limits of Eminent Domain.
All-in-all, we have a pretty decent system with regards to legal jurisprudence, but there are purists left and right who would dismantle it. Because it is imperfect and jury-rigged, it is vulnerable to their jibes.These days it is the right that seems to hold the cards (or votes) on the Supreme Court.
Assuming the next president gets to replace all four of the oldest justices (Ginsburg, Scalia, Kennedy, and Breyer), we're in for a big shift. A Democrat could transform the Court's somewhat reliable 5-4 conservative majority into a solid 6-3 liberal majority.
