    Bernie Sanders says it would be a "terrible idea" for Democrats to recruit Vice President Joe Biden to run for president if Hillary Clinton is forced out of the race. "I think that would be a terrible, terrible idea," Sanders said Friday in an interview with The Young Turks, a pro-Sanders online news show. "That would say to the millions of people who have supported us, that have worked with us, that would say all of your energy, all of your votes, all of your beliefs are irrelevant. We're going to bring in someone else," Sanders said. "I happen to...

    No, really. This is one of the best political commercials ever made. It wonít be on TV unless it gets recut, because itís two and a half minutes long, but to recut this would be a shame. It packs in many of the reasons why Cruz is a better nominee than Trump, gets across the key point that if Trump is the nominee the media which has been fawning over him will turn on him the same way they turned on John McCain and Hillaryís opposition research feeding into the media coverage will turn the entire general election race into...

    Perhaps nobody on the planet knows more about intelligence protocol than Edward Snowden. If Snowden says it's "completely ridiculous" to believe that Clinton's emails were safe, then yes, it's fair to include his viewpoint in any critique of Hillary Clinton's latest controversy. In addition, since I believe Senator Bernie Sanders is desperately needed at this point in U.S. history, and electing Clinton or a Republican would essentially be nominating the same president on war and foreign policy, it's important to address relevant analysis of the email controversy. There seems to be a bizarre paradigm of thought among some Democrats that...

    U.S. Vice President Joe Biden on Tuesday said Republican presidential contender Donald Trump was selling a "sick message" about immigrants in America based on xenophobia. Biden, considering a run for the 2016 Democratic presidential nomination, told a small group of Latinos gathered at his home that they should not lose heart watching Trump climb in the polls while taking a hard line on immigration. Trump, leading the pack of Republicans seeking their party's 2016 nomination, has accused Mexico of sending criminals and rapists to the United States. He has promised to build a wall on the U.S.-Mexico border to keep...

    President Barack Obama said Joe Biden would make a "superb" president, but questioned whether his vice president or potential rival Hillary Clinton would want to endure another campaign for the White House, a media report Monday said. Obama, in an interview with the New Yorker, said Biden "has seen the job up close, he knows what the job entails. He understands how to separate what's really important from what's less important. I think he's got great people skills. He enjoys politics, and he's got important relationships up on the Hill (in Congress) that would serve him well." "Joe would be...

    OíDonnellís victory in Delaware is already being credited to Sarah Palin and the Tea Party Movement, but more credit probably goes to a backlash against a GOP that provided a coronation to a liberal_Republican and used vicious and hate-filled tactics against his opponents, that doubtlessly reminded many Republicans of the tactics Democrats were using against Sarah Palin. I would much rather have had Hayworth knock out McCain, than have OíDonnell knock out Mike Castle. That would have removed one of the Senateís biggest liberal Republicans, and would have probably given his obnoxious daughter the boot out of the spotlight too....

    The response by the Republican political establishment to the Christine O'Donnell victory over liberal Republican Mike Castle in Delaware has been an embarrassment. A strong, vocal woman upturned the political tables in Delaware, a state where both political parties have been run like blue-blooded patriarchies for the better part of half a century, and all the boys that compose "the establishment" can muster is omniscient edicts about her absolute un-electability in a general election. Funny, I don't recall hearing similar talk from the likes of Mssrs. Rove and Cornyn after Scott Brown won in Massachusetts, Joe Miller won in Alaska,...

    Sarah Palin bet on Christine O'Donnell, and the victory enhances Palin's stature inside the Republican Party in that straightforward way. More important, it shows that a candidate with her political weaknesses, only much more so -- questions about qualifications, experience, and a confrontational partisan profile, plus some sexism -- can win a Republican Party primary pretty much anywhere. That's all good for Palin, and good for her prospects in particular of being her party's 2012 nominee. I also can't help being reminded today by the storm of media and money on both sides of Palin's own rollout. O'Donnell, various outlets...

    ďLetís go balls to the wall for Christine OíDonnell,Ē Rush Limbaugh implored listeners on his show today, but Rush knows that his listeners are the choir to which he is preaching. Itís the party establishment and the center-right commentariat that needs to hear the message, and in that vein, Rush took on Karl Rove on todayís show. Rush demanded to know why Rove and other establishment figures want to make Christine OíDonnellís character the issue, when itís the character of the current administration and Democratic leadership in Congress that should get the focus. Instead of issuing self-fulfilling prophecies of doom,...

    Newly minted GOP Senate nominee from Delaware Christine OíDonnell singled out former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin for special thanks during her victory speech Tuesday evening. ďYou betcha!Ē an ebullient OíDonnell told cheering supporters, using a Palin catch phrase. ďThereís another woman Iíve gotta thank, you betcha! When the cheering crowd subsided, OíDonnell continued: ďThank you governor Palin for your endorsement. Because she got behind us war-weary folks, and gave us a boost of encouragement when we needed it. ďAnd she was a vote against the politics of personal destruction,Ē OíDonnell told the enthusiastic throng. On Sept. 9 a Palin post...

    Public Policy Polling ^ | September 14, 2010 | Tom Jensen
    If Christine O'Donnell wins tonight it's not going to matter but here's a pretty amazing finding from our Delaware poll: Barack Obama's approval rating there is now under water at 46% happy with the job he's doing and 48% disapproving. That's a pretty amazing drop in a state where he won 62% of the vote. It's just the most dramatic example of something plaguing Democratic candidates in all of this year's most competitive Senate races though. Currently Nate Silver has 9 seats in the 25-75% probability of either side winning category. Obama won all 9 of those states in 2008....

    The Examiner ^ | September 10th, 2010 | Angel Clark
    "The time has come for us to put down the protest signs and pick up the campaign signs" says Amy Kremer of the Tea Party Express. Apparently Sarah Palin agrees. Yesterday Sarah Palin officially endorsed Christine O'Donnell for Delaware Senate on Sean Hannity's show. Hannity tweeted about the incident after the show. It also seems the RNC (Republican National Committee) agrees and is ready to pick up campaign signsÖ for Mike Castle. The RNC has allegedly been making "robo-calls" to voters in Delaware informing people of Castle's fiscal conservatism. Many already frustrated Delawareans are now becoming angry. They are attempting...

    The Atlantic ^ | September 9, 2010 | Chris Good
    Sarah Palin just offered a surprise endorsement of insurgent Delaware Senate candidate Christine O'Donnell, calling in to Sean Hannity's radio show to offer her support. The news broke mainly on Twitter, after O'Donnell and Hannity tweeted it. Dave Weigel points out some back-story here: O'Donnell's campaign manager, Matt Moran, comes from the campaign of Dave Hoffman, the Conservative Party candidate in upstate New York who briefly captivated people who follow special House elections when he ran a campaign, fueled party by Palin's endorsement, that eventually forced the Republican candidate out of the race and handed the seat to Democrats. It...

    Since the huge win in Alaska for Joe Miller, Republican Party Leadership have been making an all out full court press at backstabbing Christine O'Donnell, the likely victor in Delaware's Republican Senate Special Election Primary. Her opponent is none other than #5 RINO Mike Castle! A career GOPer with many connections in the RNC and GOP upper echelons. The above full court press article from National Review is symtomatic of the true problems facing the GOP. Mark Levin's expert analysis into this attack speaks volumes of just how deep the RINO infestation goes. If you think just going up against...
