Jamala Rogers: Are we allowing Hillary to ride the wave of her president-husband who somehow received the undeserved and unearned title of “black” president because he played the saxophone on the Arsenio Hall Show?

Randy Shaw: As ominous as the 2000 storm clouds may appear for 2016, labor’s stronger role, a weaker GOP nominee, a more diverse electoral demographic, and a shift to Democrats on social issues all bode well for Democratic chances.
