The Supreme Court. A reader at Andrew Sullivan’s blog makes the point concisely: A president Clinton will have […] a very gray Supreme Court (FOUR octogenarians in her first term). Think about what that means for all those Voting Rights Act cases … Continue reading
Reality is starting to assert itself. You won’t read this at the Drudge Report, but evidence is accumulating that Obamacare has been working over the past three years, and it’s poised to be a success moving into its “insurance exchange … Continue reading
These come from Michael Tomasky at the Daily Beast. Here’s the first: [E]lectoral demographer Ruy Teixeira reported recently that this bloc [white blue-collar voters] will constitute a sizeable 3 percent less of the electorate this year than it did in 2008—the minority … Continue reading

I’m so proud to have supported and worked for this man’s election to the presidency. Barack Obama is proving to be an even better president than I had dared hope for when I voted for him in November of 2008. And on Sunday … Continue reading
