Joe Biden announces White House run - then says he didn't mean it

Joe Biden, one of the favourites to win the 2020 Democratic nomination, appeared to announce his presidential candidacy over the weekend – before retracting his remarks.

Bernie Sanders Boosts Foreign Policy Cred For 2020 With Yemen Vote Win

Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) scored a major victory on Thursday when the Senate passed his resolution to end U.S. involvement in the Yemen civil war — one that could help his 2020 prospects. The Senate passed a resolution to defund America’s support for the Saudi-led efforts in the humanitarian disaster, a rare bipartisan rebuke to President Trump’s cozy relationship with Saudi Arabia. Sanders has led on this issue for years, working closely with Sens. Mike Lee (R-UT) and Chris Murphy (D-CT) to ...

Question of the Week: Do you consider gender when evaluating presidential candidates?

If a political candidate happens to be a woman, does that make a difference to you? Perhaps more specifically, if a candidate for president is a woman, does that make you more inclined to vote for her? That’s our Question of the Week for readers. Other democracies — including one, India, even larger than our own, with Indira Gandhi — have had national leaders who are women for generations. No world politician loomed larger on the late 20th-century stage than Britain’s Margaret Thatcher, and Ther...

Trump’s Epic History of Coddling, Promoting and Refusing to Denounce Anti-Semitism

President Trump is the most successful, prominent promoter of anti-Semitism in American history. Certainly he is the only president who has ever compiled such a record. I wanted to put together just a handful of examples of this. I ignored the voluminous examples of avowed anti-Semites promoting and supporting the President as their candidate. I’m not included accounts in books of anti-Semitic smears and comments from Trump. I’m also not including numerous statements about Jews in which he make...

For a growing number of Americans, socialism is OK

You wouldn’t expect democratic socialists to hit the brakes when it comes to social justice. But in late February members of Inland Empire Democratic Socialists of America learned how to fix brake lights so they could offer that bit of auto repair service, for free, at an upcoming community event. Working tail lights, they reasoned, would mean fewer police traffic stops and, possibly, fewer fatal outcomes for people of color. Auto repair is just one part of the chapter’s public outreach about an...

Merkley Passes On Presidential Bid, Will Run For Third Term In Senate Instead

SALEM, Ore. (AP) — U.S. Sen. Jeff Merkley of Oregon has decided not to enter the increasingly crowded race for the 2020 Democratic presidential nomination after months of consideration. Merkley told The Associated Press the large field of Democratic contenders for the White House was not a major factor in his decision, nor was an Oregon law that prevents him from being on the ballot for more than one elected office in any given year. “I’ve never shied from a fight, and there’s nothing about t...
