Hillary Clinton needs to do a press conference because not doing one allows this false equivalency with Donald Trump's assault on the free press to continue, and in no way is Clinton less transparent than Trump. Her whole life has already been vetted and has been lived in the public eye.
Elizabeth Warren is a perfect complement to Hillary Clinton. It's lighting in a bottle special. It's Obama at the DNC in 2004. This is the magic Clinton was missing.
The following is an editorial by PoliticusUSA’s co-publisher Sarah Jones.
Demoralized Democrats are depressed today because they’ve had an entire primary of issue indulgence, with excellent presidential candidates focused on policy and issues that matter deeply to the base. The Democratic primary has truly been a cornucopia of issues, a fact that made a sharp contrast between the Republican cage match of violent extremism and the Democratic primary of wonky debate.
The media keeps playing dumb by asking Democratic candidates Bernie Sanders and Hillary Clinton if Donald Trump is a racist. This question sets the question up as if it is a matter of debate or personal opinion and is being used to exploit drama for ratings.
Seven years in, one thing has become abundantly clear - this President is on a moral mission. Not all people who run for the highest office of the land actually have an agenda to do good for the people, but it appears as though this President did and does.
President Barack Obama knows this. That is why he hunted down and killed Osama bin Laden. That's not something any person with an ounce of humanity wants to do, no matter what- to kill another human being. But it was necessary.
The major problem with Ben Carson's tendency to embellish memories in a way that glorifies himself is it's best if a world leader is in touch with reality.
Hillary Clinton apologized for a made up email scandal that was blown way out of proportion by the MSM. Now that the DOJ has put that to rest, where is their apology to her?
Senator Bernie Sanders (I-VT) is a man who has always advocated for the underdogs, for women, for minorities. And so it's exceptionally ironic and troubling that his campaign is being hijacked by priggish, self-satisfied, angry white progressives.
So to blame Obama for any failure to change the laws is to lash out at one of the few people willing to take on the NRA. That's not helping.
The worst fear of the Koch brothers has always been that people will learn about their activities and fight back. On Face The Nation, Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) announced that people are fighting back and his campaign now has more than 200,000 donors.
Our politics are centered on policy, but there is a line that should not be crossed and Senator Ted Cruz has officially crossed it. He is not only not fit to be president, he isn't fit to be a sitting senator.
We were set for a primary where the issues actually get coverage because there would be no mud. That all changed yesterday, when along came former Maryland Governor Martin O'Malley.
The reason Republicans have a problem is because they won't denounce the Duggar family's cover up of Josh Duggar's sexual assaults. Former Governor Mike Huckabee has gone full-on defense of the child sexual predator and his family while other Republicans who used the Duggar family as right-wing Christian cred in photo-ops are now silent.
But this time, things were different. Here's what happens when things start to change. Time magazine, one of the most mainstream publications there is, puts "Black Lives Matter" on its cover.
She hasn't even announced yet, and Hillary Clinton's campaign is looking like an incumbent's reelection campaign.
Obama never asked us to give up a major freedom so he could get Bin Laden. He just got him.
One thing is obvious: Democrats are still allowing the media to parrot GOP narratives, and Democrats are still running away from their own ideas and into the arms of the tepid enemy of equivalency. Democrats are still afraid to be bold.
When asked about Obamacare, aka, Kynect, Mitch McConnell floundered. This was supposed to be the Grand GOP Plan for 2014, but it turned around and bit McConnell in the bum.
A federal judge denied Kentucky Senate candidate David Patterson's request to be included in the debate between Secretary of State Alison Lundergan Grimes (D-KY) and Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY).
