Movement To Draft Elizabeth Warren For President

Senator Elizabeth Ann Warren has said that she will not run for President in 2016. However, for many Democrats, Hillary Clinton is a disheartening candidate. They’re dismayed by Hillary Clinton’s support for the Rush to war in Iraq, and by the way that it took her a decade to admit that vote was a mistake. […]

Who Crossed The Aisle In US House Vote On Obama’s Immigration Executive Order

President Barack Obama has the power to adjust the way immigration laws are enforced, and Congress has the power to reign him in.

Can Hillary Clinton Count On Religious Voters For Consistent Support?

Back in April, Elizabeth Dias of Time Magazine described the debut of a new political action committee called Faith Voters for Hillary. “Faith for Hillary is in the process of filing as a PAC, marking a strong push by Hillary Clinton’s religious supporters ahead of her potential presidential bid in 2016,” she wrote.

Being taken for granted by the […]

What if We Stopped Talking About Party Candidates?

How would politics change if we stopped talking about party candidates?

Oh, I don’t mean that we stop talking about candidates who are running with the Libertarian Party or Green Party or Americans Elect Party or Democratic Party or Republican Party, or what have you. I mean something different. What would happen if we stopped […]

Eat Kale. Vote Clinton. Get Your 2016 On.

The 2014 congressional elections are over, and yes, the Democrats lost. That’s no reason for Democrats to get down-hearted, though. It’s a reason for them to get motivated.

As of today, the 2016 presidential campaign season has begun. It’s time to get involved.

To that end, I offer our first freshly minted 2016 presidential campaign […]

Arkansas Democrats, There Is An Alternative To Electing Another Blue Dog As Governor

Given Mike Ross’s long history of collaboration with the Republican Party, the reasonable choice on Election Day for progressive residents of Arkansas is Josh Drake. […]

Why I Will Vote For Howie Hawkins For Governor Of New York Tomorrow

I have met both Andrew Cuomo and Howie Hawkins in person. My general impression of both of these candidates in the 2014 campaign for Governor of New York was that they were more motivated their personal ambitions than by any policy concerns. Perhaps that’s typical of politicians, but the point is that I was not […]

Democrat Emily Cain Hops on the Ebola Panic Bandwagon

While it’s fair to say that more Republicans than Democrats have been caught up in the panic over Ebola in the United States, the Ebola freakout is not an entirely partisan phenomenon. In a recent debate for the Maine 2nd District Congressional race, Democratic candidate Emily Cain was asked the question, “What should government be […]
