When Virginia Senator Tim Kaine was picked for the Democratic Party ticket, the media reported that Kaine was a centrist, and Bernie Sanders fans were disappointed. Yet according to analysis by the American Conservative Union, Kaine is actually more progressive than Sanders. "'An establishment Wall Street Democrat like Tim Kaine...will...
What Trump did on Wednesday, however, went way beyond simply having a different view about US-Russia relations. It demonstrated that Trump either does not understand basic ideas about national sovereignty and national security, or more ominously, suggests a relationship between a political candidate and a foreign power that is at the very least clear and present threat to our political processes.
Whether Clinton has been treated unfairly or has received improper scrutiny is something voters will have to decide for themselves in November. But the statements made about her by Trump and other political rivals would clearly be judged as sexist in most courtrooms that I've set foot in and that should give us pause.
I understand that in the end many people are just too frightened of Trump to worry about their hearts right now. Fair enough. So all I ask is that you think about how hard this is for you, how hard it is going to be to vote for someone who you don't believe, or believe in.
I had it all ready to go. In a flash of inspiration, I had typed up about 3,000 words to explain how, after this whole #DNCLeak thing, I was still a Bernie or Bust guy.
That we continue to exonerate people who are killing others makes my head spin. However, the reality is, we should all (and by "all," I mean all white people) be held accountable for the police shootings that have occurred. We. Are. Guilty. How?
#DumpTrump along with #TrumpThat and #WallOffTrump are some of the most common hashtags you might have seen or even used in campaigning against Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump. In an electoral race that positions language such as "anti-Trump" as a way to frame support for Hillary Clinton, it's also...
The nomination of Secretary Hillary Clinton for President of the United States at the Democratic National Convention this week is a historic step forward for our nation, and the Communications Workers of America and I are proud to stand with her to build an America that works for working families.
Globalization's forward march and seismic demographic shifts in the developed world have combined to intensify the seductive pull to look backward and inward, with unfortunate consequences for our politics and social order.
We celebrate all those who have worked so hard to get us this far. Now we must defeat Donald Trump in November, elect those to Congress who commit to reform, and then get to work to make it happen. For the sake of our democracy itself, there is no other choice.
An Open Letter To Ivanka,
Letter To Ivanka,
Few would argue against the idea that you are a poised, articulate, capable young woman. You have lived a life of privilege, without coming to the conclusion that this makes you entitled. I applaud you. You deeply respect and greatly admire your father. No parent would ask for more.
Truth is I've been a one-issue voter for most of my voting life. I didn't often want to admit it because I know some would say being so is unethical. If you put all your caring eggs into only one basket, the other caring baskets go empty.
Kim Jong Un,
Dealing with North Korea brings to mind Sisyphus, the mythological Greek king condemned for eternity to roll a stone up a hill, only to watch it roll back down.
All in all, Wednesday was a fabulous day for Democrats, and it may well be an important pivot point for their convention.
We are in the midst of a clash of civilizations. Not in the Samuel Huntington sense, of East vs. West, or Muslim vs. Christian, but in the basic political philosophical sense of constitutional democracy vs. fascist authoritarianism.
Donald Trump is probably going to be elected. He is probably going to be elected because he is running on a platform of fear.
I had it all ready to go. In a flash of inspiration, I had typed up about 3,000 words to explain how, after this whole #DNCLeak thing, I was still a Bernie or Bust guy. And then the web page into which I was typing the essay...
Donald Trump offered a new explanation this week on why he believes climate change is a hoax.
Emotions are high and a lot is at stake, but here are some things I hope my peers understand on the road to November.
