  • #NeverTrump could set a regrettable precedent

    I don’t like Trump. I still haven’t resolved for whom I am voting in November. However, the budding movement to change the convention rules after the fact in order to deny Trump the nomination he won with the votes of legitimate (albeit misguided) primary voters and caucus attendees is the wrong thing to do. Here are a couple reasons why.

  • Cruz and Kasich need each other in race to beat Trump

    Ted Cruz taking on Donald Trump one-on-one isn’t necessarily the best path to victory. In many primaries, it would be better if John Kasich remained in the race. This article examines where and why that is., analyzing coming primaries.

LGBT voters, heretofore distracted by wedge issues dealing specifically with their sexual orientation, are now freed from their single-issue devotion to the Democratic Party. Issues that matter to the rest of the electorate are now more relevant to LGBT voters. Many will conclude that Republicans now represent a better choice.

    TMI Department: The National Enquirer (which first broke the John Edwards story) quotes an Arkansas state trooper on then-Gov. Clinton’s security detail. It’s not an image I want before dinner. Maybe it will help me lose weight!

    The charged aftermath of the death of Michael Brown in Ferguson illustrates how the Democratic Party has failed the African Americans whose votes put them in power. As everyone pauses to reflect, African Americans would be well served by rethinking their political loyalties.
