A Donald Trump nomination means several elements of the Republican Party will sit out the election, vote third-party or even vote Democrat. The seams of the GOP coalition are tearing apart in front of our eyes.
Democrats are beginning to understand that black votes matter to their margin of victory. But to earn those votes, Democrats have to prove that black votes matter to them, with policies that prove black lives matter to them.
Conservatives who worry about government "red tape" smothering "freedom" need to take a closer look at our great economic divides. And if they did, they'd start supporting America's trade unions instead of trying to subvert them.
Something very big has happened, and it’s not due to Bernie Sanders’ magnetism or Donald Trump’s likeability. It’s a rebellion against the establishment. The question is why the establishment has been so slow to see this.
The difference is very difficult to spot. The word "paragraph" has been changed to "subparagraph." But this makes a major change for the worse to the intellectual property provisions of the Trans-Pacific Partnership.
Donald Trump keeps winning primaries. On Tuesday, he won big in Nevada caucuses. He leads in the vast number of upcoming March primaries. He's on his way to the nomination. But he will not be elected president of the United States.

Signs continue to indicate momentum for a new emerging education policy narrative that treats student poverty as a real issue to be addressed rather than as an excuse to be dismissed – underscored in the relaunch of a schools initiative.

Black unemployment continues to be a crisis that does not get the attention that it deserves. The candidate who best addresses this crisis would be the person most deserving to win the African-American vote.
Both men would be disasters for America, but Ted Cruz would be the larger disaster. Cruz is more fanatical, disciplined, and strategic. He's a true believer, and a loner who's willing to destroy government institutions to get his way.
The populist revolt in both parties continues to roil both parties. On the Republican side, the establishment favorite -- Jeb! -- is gone. On the Democratic side, the Sanders surge continues to grow.

That didn’t take long: Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia was found dead on Saturday morning, after expiring in his sleep on Friday night. The conspiracy theories started late Sunday.

Trump's non-ideological campaign of hate would split the party, whether or not the GOP allows him to claim the nomination. Better to excommunicate him, cleanse the party of hate and purify conservatism.

The presidential debates have treated ISIS and Syria as America's central security threats. Ignored is the increasing threat of a global economic downturn that would undermine our security far more than ISIS can imagine.
On its seventh anniversary, imagine the apocalyptic economic and political landscape that we would see without the Recovery Act to ignite a virtuous cycle of government investment that put people to work.
If Sanders comes to Philadelphia in July with a legion of delegates, chances are he's going to look to the Hubert Humphrey example of 1948, and hope that he can similarly transform the Democratic Party.
Hundreds of officials will be convening in Brussels next week to pound out the Trans-Atlantic Trade and Investment Partnership, or TTIP, and consumer groups on both sides of the Atlantic have been mobilizing in opposition.
