It's so obvious!
How did this happen? Thank the 6.2 million Democratic voters from 2012 went missing in 2016.
The only vote of conscience in this election is a vote for Hillary Clinton.
Eight years ago tonight, we elected hope in the midst of the despair of the worst economic calamity in living memory. Eight years later, the vindication of that President and the case for the next chapter.
At this point, it is patently clear that Russia is interfering in the US election, and that it is to the benefit of Donald Trump. But is this just a recent cyber war or is this a long-planned Russian espionage that began with Edward Snowden, Wikileaks, and Glenn Greenwald?
FBI Director James Comey's letter to Congress about some emails his agency found that may or may not be related to Hillary Clinton and may or may not have already been reviewed by the agency a mere 11 days before the election is not merely outrageous. That his agency had known about the emails for weeks prior and that he refuses to release convincing evidence his agency possesses about Donald Trump's ties to Russia is likely a serious violation of federal law.
The armed violence threat that Donald Trump made yesterday against Hillary Clinton - or perhaps the judges she would appoint - is the culmination of decades of the Republican party cultivating a coalition based on hatred, fear, and violence.
The 2012 GOP autopsy report identified six important areas of concern that needed to be addressed ahead of the 2016 presidential election. However, as a wise woman once said, "It's easy to diagnose the problem. It's harder to do something about the problem."
When Bernie Sanders partisans demand that Democrats nominate their candidate because otherwise a good portion of millennials would withhold their vote, they are accusing an entire generation of blackmail. We are NOT the suicide generation.
Hillary Clinton had a clean sweep last night. She extended her popular vote and delegate leads (now leading Sanders by more than 2.5 million votes and more than 300 pledged delegates). Sanders has the money to push on, but no longer the math.
Hillary Clinton is an amazingly accomplished, tough, get-it done progressive leader. And she's a woman. Every woman - every American - has a right to want a woman (and this woman) to be president.
Rage-peddling has consequences. For our country's sake, candidates must step back from stoking anger.
