Betsy DeVos’s confirmation hearing proves she’s unqualified, dangerous, and out of her league. PLUS: GRIZZLIES!!!

It’s unmistakably clear that Republicans are doing everything they can to protect their corporatist benefactor Betsy DeVos from having to face any sort of real scrutiny in her bid to become the nation’s Secretary of Education. They scheduled her confirmation hearing BEFORE the U.S. Office of Government Ethics had released its report on her so that she can’t be questioned […]

Reflections on Hillary Clinton’s historic achievement, superdelegates, and the fight ahead against demagogue Trump

Reflections on Hillary Clinton’s historic achievement, superdelegates, and the fight ahead against demagogue Trump

I’m proud of her and I’m proud of my Party for shattering historic […]

Let’s face it: NOBODY has a clue how the presidential primaries will shake out. Despite recent surges (and primary wins) by Ted Cruz and Bernie Sanders, Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton are the presumptive “favorites” according to the basic delegate math. But there’s also the fact that this year is like no other presidential election year in recent memory and, […]

Bernie Sanders proves in Michigan that the ground game is what wins elections

Sen. Bernie Sanders’ upset victory in Michigan yesterday unequivocally proved that a solid ground game is the key to winning elections. Not only has Sen. Sanders brought scores of new people into the political process, he was able, in Michigan at least, to get them to register to vote and to actually go to the polls in large numbers. How […]
