Dances with Democrats: Warren Woos Progressives, Comforts Party Faithful

Sen. Elizabeth Warren dances a two-step to win the party nomination as she woos Progressives in the revolutionary style of Bernie Sanders, and comforts the rank-and-file faithful Democrats like Joe Biden does.

Did Trump’s ‘Disloyal’ Quip Poison His Efforts to Win Jews to the Republican Party?

Trump vs. China: Bold on Trade, Meek on Hong Kong Human Rights?

Has the United States, in the era of Trump, lost its global moral leadership? President Donald Trump levies tariffs on China and talks tough about a new trade deal, but says little about the very public crackdown on protestors in Hong Kong. While he’s been bold on trade, this week he caved on his threat to invoke higher tariffs in September. Critics say the timing makes him look meek on human rights.
