Brent Budowsky: I am arguing that the data are screaming a message that cannot be denied: Across the universe of match-up polls, Sanders runs stronger than Clinton, Trump, Cruz, Rubio and Kasich. Period.
John Peeler: Perhaps the most striking finding is that Hillary got 58 percent of those identifying themselves as Democrats, while Bernie was supported by 71 percent of those declaring themselves Independents (27 percent of the sample). Sanders Takes Michigan
Steven Singer: That’s right – the 2016 Democratic Presidential candidate who has been endorsed by the leaders of the national teachers unions has a corporate education reformer running her campaign.
John Marciano: I’ll believe Clinton is sincere about domestic gun deaths and gun control when she shows the same concern for children in the Middle East and Asia who have been massacred by the weapons that she, as Senator and Secretary of State, helped fund and export to murderous regimes.
Michael Hertz: The Clinton campaign insisted that Bill did not actually solicit votes for Hillary inside the polling place. But clearly he held a rally near a polling place (at which he used a bullhorn) and then went inside.

Ted Vaill: I recalled that Bernie Sanders was an agitator, an activist even then, staging a sit-in at University of Chicago housing that excluded blacks. He has never stopped.

ood news! Democratic Presidential candidate Hillary Clinton just admitted there are significant problems with the nation’s charter schools! Bad news! She has no interest in solving them! In fact, she thinks charters are just great. Here’s Clinton criticizing charter schools: Most charter schools — I don’t want to say every one — but most charter […]
s the first Democratic presidential debate drew to a close, moderator Anderson Cooper posed a question to Hillary Clinton: How might her presidency differ from Barack Obama’s? Clinton smiled. “Well, I think it’s pretty obvious,” she replied to rapturous applause. “Being the first woman president would be quite a change from the presidents we’ve had.” […]
Treva Brandon Scharf: When it comes to fitness, yoga gives you the most bang for your buck: it strengthens, lengthens, and relaxes all at the same time. It can invigorate or restore; it can energize or quiet the mind.
Brent Budowsky: If Trump tied the GOP in knots by prolonging the Republican nominating process, and prolonged the process of Republicans attacking Republicans, that would be a huge benefit for Hillary Clinton. Check that box.
