In the spirit of it never being too early to speculate about 2016, did Bill de Blasio's big win in the NYC mayoral race just position him to be the next Democratic vice presidential nominee?
Whether one likes Joe Biden's politics or not, during the first 54 months of his vice presidency, he has built a record rivaled by few others on the modern political scene.
We live in an age where political parties as well as journalists and pundits are overly obsessed with the racial, ethnic, and religious lineage of a candidate both in terms of suitability and electability.
Here is our exclusive and nonexistent interview with Mr. Secured-Undisclosed Location himself (written, of course, in rhyming, Dick-ensian verse). Our one question to Cheney: "Why can't you just say you're sorry?"
Former Vice President Al Gore spoke about his new book, The Future: Six Drivers of Global Change, with Charlie Rose here at 92y last week. In this cl...
If we are serious about electing a female president in this country, then we should first look at how we limit the role of the First Lady. Maybe if we allowed these women the opportunity to utilize all of their skills, then the role could better reflect that of today's modern American woman.
As Palin leaves her national audience on Fox News, though, we have to at least give her credit for her staying power. Even lefties, if they're honest, will admit that they're kind of going to miss Sarah. Granted, it's in a Nixonian "to kick around" sort of sense, but still.
I fondly recall learning to shoot a .22 rifle at Boy Scout camp oh those many years ago. I've had little direct experience with guns since then. But I do not write to you today as an anti-gun polemicist.
Others scratch their heads trying to come up with qualified names without falling back on the age-old habit of identifying a grey/white-haired lawyer, professor, banker man. The list does not go on and on and is pretty sparse at the moment. So why not try the purloined letter approach?
Paul Ryan was portrayed by many in the media as a "numbers whiz." Assuming that Ryan truly is a data-cruncher, one can't help wondering if he was aware of the historical data regarding the probability of ever becoming president after being on the losing side of a ticket.
Take a ride down YouTube's memory lane with the best news flubs, pop culture parodies, musical tributes, dug-up footage, and celebrity endorsements from one of the most revolutionary political events in American history.
To choose: To select freely, after and including deliberation, argument, debate, consideration, reflection. It's time to choose, America. Which way are we going?
The lights are being removed, the podiums are gone, and the cleanup crew is sweeping up the tiny, tiny pieces of Paul Ryan that were left all over the stage last night. Heh. Well, maybe not really, but it certainly seems that way, doesn't it?
Biden not only trounced Ryan, but also, in the process, trounced Romney.
There is nothing virtuous about selfishness and there is nothing objective about Ayn Rand's objectivist philosophy, which is little more than a sly attempt to whitewash her own flaws.
Biden seemed to be on steroids and amphetamines, as if he were trying to overcompensate for last week's lackluster performance by his boss, President Obama, in his match-up against Mitt Romney. This led to Biden actually punching himself around the ring a few times.
