Hillary Clinton worked for party unity, but only after a very hard-fought and contentious primary season. I offer these reminders up, because now she finds herself in the opposite role. And it seems like everyone's memory has gone fuzzy when recalling the final two months of the 2008 race.
A repaired presidential public financing system would dramatically increase the amount of clean resources available to participating candidates and thereby greatly dilute the importance and impact of outside spending groups and their mega-donors.

Democratic voters in Maryland's 8th Congressional District have decisions to make as they look to replace an incredibly successful and effective Congressperson.
Hillary needs to make a gun control distinction with Bernie, because it is the only position on which she is to the left of him, albeit just barely. This may be a good strategy in a New York Democratic Primary, but it is a lousy general election strategy.
"We won't see a presidential candidate like Bernie again in our lifetimes." As I heard these words, spoken by a woman at a Sanders campaign event recently, I felt a chill go through me. Because I knew she was right. We won't.
Once again, the Daily News has revealed a kooky left-wing politician making grand promises without fully understanding the details necessary to achieve those plans. Such politicians believe in crazy things like "vision" and "leadership" and expect that by mobilizing the hard-working and intelligent Americans to believe their "vision", they can accomplish such outlandish things as walking on the moon and guaranteeing healthcare and a living wage to all Americans.
The Post certainly didn't lie; it simply made a big mistake. But corrections never do catch up with mistakes. And combined with a widespread and generally unwarranted mistrust of Clinton by the American people, those mistakes will certainly make her life and candidacy even more difficult.

The Republican presidential nomination race has previously devolved to the level of an elementary school playground (penis-measuring in a national debate), and has now risen to at least high school (if not a college frat house) with the vicious battle going on between Donald Trump and Ted Cruz over who can insult each other's wives the most.
The Washington Post published today a shockingly critical article questioning why EMILY's List is spending big to defeat a progressive Democrat. Really? Of course EMILY's List is spending big to elect a progressive, pro-choice Democratic woman. Duh. That is exactly its mission.
Another takeaway from the interview (which has been mentioned by numerous commentators already) is that it's still quite unclear how a Trump presidency would work in practice. Trump continues to have a hard time explaining how he'd implement his ideas. On other occasions, he doesn't really answer questions. The Donald is, quite frankly, drowning in vagaries and obfuscation.
Our elite class loves to explain to laid-off workers why their woes are their own fault. They don't have a college degree. They should have started their own companies. They're on drugs. They're too fat or lazy or dim to quickly adapt. Trump beckons... "There will be so many jobs." "It will be beautiful."
If Mr. Trump wants to address media organizations that "write purposely negative and horrible, false articles" then the law is already established as to his rights to do that.

If we were to be honest, we would describe Mr. Trump as a reflection of ourselves; not only of those who agree with his statements, both openly and behind closed doors, but of the apathy of those in all parties who know better and refuse to speak up.
