California’s long, complicated primary elections

California moved its primary up from June to March to try to be more influential in the Democratic primary, but it turns out that the drama isn’t about who will win. It’s about who can figure out how to vote. Elections used to be simple. There was one Election Day. People mostly showed up to vote in person, with relatively few casting absentee ballots. A machine count of punch-card or ink-a-dot ballots produced nearly complete results on Election Night. That was so boring. Today, California’s el...

Bernie Sanders distances himself from Ocasio-Cortez's comments, says Medicare for All is 'already a compromise'

Sen. Bernie Sanders on Tuesday night broke from Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, who in a recent interview suggested that passing a watered down version of "Medicare for All" in a deeply divided Congress would still represent a major achievement for the Democratic Party's progressive wing.

Sanders Campaign Manager Slams MSNBC, Says Fox News Is ‘More Fair’

Bernie Sanders’s campaign manager, Faiz Shakir, has accused MSNBC of employing “double standard” in its coverage of the Vermont senator, claiming in an interview published Tuesday that Fox News is “more fair” in critiquing Sanders’s progressive platform.“That’s saying something,” Shakir told Vanity Fair. “Fox is often yelling about Bernie Sanders’s socialism, but they’re still giving our campaign the opportunity to make our case in a fair manner, unlike MSNBC, which has credibility with the left...

Roger Stone judge ignores Trump's taunts, leaves sentencing scheduled for Thursday

Roger Stone will be sentenced on Thursday and President Trump can do nothing about it.That's the message U.S. District Court Judge Amy Berman Jackson, who's overseeing the criminal case against Trump's longtime adviser, sent Tuesday when she confirmed the date of Stone's sentencing hearing. Despite receiving threats from Trump to delay the sentencing for a second time, that "would not be a prudent thing to do under all the circumstances," Jackson said.Uproar surrounding Stone'...

Obama reportedly expects he'll have to play a 'prominent role' in uniting Democrats this summer

Expect former President Barack Obama's radio silence on the 2020 Democratic primary to continue in the coming months. After all, he's reportedly got a very specific reason for staying out of it.Obama has intentionally remained on the sidelines throughout the primary so far, not throwing his support behind any candidate, including former Vice President Joe Biden. This, New York Magazine reports, is part of a "choreographed strategy" on the part of Obama, who is "increasingly sure he will ...

"With the race looking more and more likely to grow bitter and messy, and maybe even wind up in a contested convention, the former president..."

"... and those around him are increasingly sure he will need to play a prominent role in bringing the party back together and calming its tensions later this summer, including perhaps in Milwaukee, where the party’s meeting is scheduled to be held in July. So he is committed to not allowing his personal thoughts to dribble out in the meantime, directly or via leaks, conscious of how any sense that he’s taking sides in intraparty disputes could rock the primary in the short run and potentially un...

Mike Bloomberg is not the lesser of two evils

Like the vast majority of Americans, I have been effectively disenfranchised in the last few presidential elections. In 2011, I moved to Washington, D.C., which is so heavily Democratic that any vote for president is totally meaningless — in 2016, Hillary Clinton won with 93 percent of the vote. But last year, I moved to famously swingy Pennsylvania, and suddenly I'm a full citizen again. (I'm already lording it over my friends from California and New York.)As I have written on many occa...
