Ryan's got enough problems right now as it is, since he hasn't really gotten anything done in the House this year. Just like John Boehner before him, the Tea Party extremist faction is holding everything hostage and gumming up the works.
The biggest argument I hear on Twitter for why we should automatically vote for Hillary Clinton is that she is the most experienced candidate. But what do credentials matter when you are lacking in judgement? Credentials are fine, but credentials do not illustrate a person's behavior, attitude, or ability to perform.
The Republican Party started out with 16 candidates and are now down to two highly unattractive candidates. The Republican Party is doing its best to block them so that the party could put forth a reasonable candidate.
We can and must do the same when it comes to protecting our voting rights and addressing big moneyed interests' disproportional sway in our politics. Corporate influence over our democracy is one of the biggest threats to our food, water and climate.
Lately, Ed Blum's name has been everywhere. At least, when it comes to Supreme Court cases. Whether it is affirmative action, voting rights, or redistricting, Blum has been leading a well-funded effort to limit who has representation in our democracy.
Whatever your differences, on the crucial question of the direction of the Court for years to come, you are essentially the same. That should be reason enough for you to refrain from undercutting each other and sowing division in Democratic ranks.
Bernie Sanders consistently repeats that we need to start a political revolution, with or without him, to correct what most people in this country agree is wrong with it: our government is corrupted by money and crony capitalism.

This month, Ohio Secretary of State Jon Husted's election administrators have been back in court, attempting to explain why every lawfully cast vote is NOT counted here in Ohio. Here's what we learned.
Here in America, we celebrate democracy by staying in touch with the lack of it. What better way to honor our ancestors' struggles to win the right to...
As many Americans have learned this hard-fought election cycle, U.S. territories actually do participate in presidential primaries despite not having a vote in November.
Voting isn't a privilege. It's a right. And that right is too important to be left to partisan politics. We must not allow anyone's votes to be taken away.
Score the Evenwel ruling as a win for liberals, albeit one by which they largely dodged a bullet, but by no means put to rest the dangers of future discriminatory gerrymandering or other forms of voter suppression.
