The second round of debates for the herd of Democratic presidential candidates got underway last night. Unlike the current office holder, the ten wannabe presidents who gathered in Detroit demonstrated their seriousness about policy. In fact, that was the theme of the evening – parsing policy differences about health care, student debt forgiveness and foreign policy. The back and forth among the candidates was a window into the future of the Democratic party. The party has been drifting leftward recently–although not...

There’s always turnover in Congress. After all, if you had to re-apply for your job every two years, you might decide at some point to call it quits too. But you might also decide to pack it in if you thought you wouldn’t get to keep your job. With the next election more than a year away, Republicans are already heading for the exits in surprising numbers. In the past week alone, three GOP representatives announced that they were not...

Peter Thiel, the gay billionaire who supports Donald Trump, continued his habit of saying ridiculous things, but, for once, he may be correct on at least one point. A stopped clock is right twice a day, after all. Speaking at the National Conservatism Conference, Thiel, who also spoke at the Republican National Convention, called on the FBI and CIA to investigate Google for treason.

Abrams had proven a formidable candidate in a state generally considered a GOP slam dunk. She was a vocal supporter of LGBTQ rights in a way Georgia wasn’t used to seeing, especially since the issue is still considered a high-risk gamble in the South. But next year’s race...

Alabama’s disgraced judge, Roy Moore, is pondering a second run for the Senate, in spite of opposition from the GOP who seem intent on blocking him.  Moore, who was accused of the sexual harassment of multiple teenaged women, ran for the senate in 2017 during a special election. Moore was the first Republican to lose a senate race in the state in approximately 25 years. The GOP sees a second Moore run as a move that would endanger their chances of defeating...
