Skewed News — It’s time to face the truth: Donald Trump could be our next president. It’s also time to recognize that he is dangerous. First, the likelihood of him being elected.

Skewed News — It’s over. Hillary has won the Democratic nomination for president.

Skewed News — Biden isn’t running. Good. Not that he couldn’t have made a good president. The vice president certainly would have been better than Obama, on every front: more legislative experience, a big vision for policy, a natural, undeniable warmth, a love of people you just don’t see in Obama (nicknamed Spock by New York Times columnist-snarkmaster Maureen Dowd).

Skewed News — She came to destroy Bernie. Hillary Clinton’s polls have been sliding for months — ground she has lost mostly to the Vermont Senator’s populist attacks on “the billionaire class” he points out has scooped up most of the income resulting from productivity gains over the last 40 years. At last night’s first Democratic presidential debate, it quickly […]
