Georgia: Battle Royal to Control the Senate

Washington – Joe Biden’s tradition-shattering, razor-thin, 11,799-vote victory in the Deep South state of Georgia in November is the political explosion that fires Democratic dreams of winning two fiercely fought U.S. Senate runoff elections in Georgia in early January and thereby gaining control of the U.S. Senate. Right now, Republicans have locked in a 50-48 […]

Have We Just Crippled Washington?

Washington – Normally, elections clear the air, bring new faces to power, offer the dawn of a new day,  a fresh beginning, and an opportunity for political healing. Not the election of 2020. The electorate rendered a split decision that could easily lead to more gridlock in Washington. The scarring schism that polarizes America into […]

Donald Trump – “Clear and Present Danger”

Washington – We have all become so inured to Donald Trump’s erratic, volcanic, beyond-the-bounds behavior that we may not have absorbed the alarming reality that in the past two weeks, the President of the United States has posed what some would term a “clear and present danger” to our nation’s bedrock institutions,  what could potentially […]

Washington – If you’re thinking of voting by mail this fall, pay close attention to what happened in the primary elections across the country this spring and summer. Tens of thousands of mail ballots were disqualified and not counted. So we need to figure out how to beat this problem pronto – both at the […]

How Do Independents Get More Clout in Our Politics?

Washington – How about a pop quiz about  American politics? You’ll like this poll, especially if you’re in your 20s, 30s, and 40s,  because it deals a lot with Millennials and Gen Xers. But it does include everyone, even retirees over 65. Here’s the question: What’s been the fastest-growing political party or movement in the U.S. […]

Coming on PBS – How Can We Fix Our Democracy?

WASHINGTON – Do you sometimes feel as if our democracy is coming apart at the seams? Gridlock, hate speech, dark money, negative ads, political parties at each others throats instead of working together for our common good? It’s almost enough to make you give up on American democracy. But please,don’t go there.  Because I know […]

Missouri: The People vs The Politicians

Washington – They call Missouri the “Show Me State.” Well, this year the people of Missouri need to show us all whether they’re going to let the power brokers in the state legislature kill the election law reforms adopted by a majority of Missouri voters two years ago.
