2016 Democratic National Convention Choice Narrowed Down to Three

With 2016 bearing down upon the nation (it is only a year away), one of the big questions is where the Democratic National Convention will be held in two years. MSNBC’s Steve Kornacki called the race to host the convention the first campaign for 2016, including a debate on his show and negative advertising.

This Republican Party Will Never Change

Reading about the GOP in 2014 makes one feel like he or she has taken a trip on a time machine and went back in history to the 20th century; particularly the 1950’s. After their second loss in 2012, Republican leadership claimed that they were aware the party had to change its attitude towards women and minorities. Instead, they have regressed; this Republican Party will never change. The GOP in

That story is set to blow wide open on Monday when proceedings start, but for those looking ahead to 2016 it is already of utmost importance.

Hillary 2016 vs. Hillary 2008

Hillary Clinton gave a long and detailed interview to The Atlantic’s Jeffrey Goldberg, outlining her own foreign policy ideas and vision.
