Harvey Silverglate Dissects Federal Prosecutors' Corrupt Justicenew

In Three Felonies A Day, the civil liberties watchdog's thesis is as provocative as it is simple: justice has become sufficiently perverted in this nation that federal prosecutors, if they put their minds to it, could find a way to indict almost any one of us for almost anything.

The Economic Mess Obama's Inheriting Comes from Clinton, Not Bushnew

If truth be known, Bush inherited, as Obama will soon, deregulated financial, agricultural, trade and social policies. Put in place by Bill Clinton and Al Gore, these were the achievement of the 1990s -- a period that needs to be understood not, as greens once hoped, as the "turnaround decade," but as the "regression decade."

How George and Now Barack Mirror Our American Psychenew

When Barack Obama claimed his victory in Chicago's Grant Park, he thanked many people. But the one name missing from the list was the man who perhaps did the most to win Obama the presidency: George W. Bush. More than anyone else, he showed the disastrous downside of being born rich, white and well-connected.

The GOP Puts All its Political Eggs in the Specious Attack Basketnew

Whether the event -- real or cooked up -- is a sexual indiscretion, tenuous association with someone with an unsavory past or extremist religious views, Democrats seem to get stuck and their GOP counterparts are able to just slip-slide their slimy way through the muck. Why is that?

Obama Faces Stiff Competition for Center Stage at His Own Nominationnew

He undoubtedly has to give Clinton a chance to deliver a prime-time speech and, no matter how nice she is to Obama, she (and not he) will be the focus of that evening's broadcast. Add in Bill Clinton and the ailing Ted Kennedy, and you can see why Obama took the final night speech to another venue.

Why Sean Hannity is Unpatrioticnew

It might be easy to dismiss Hannity as a mere hypocrite, but he's actually something much worse. He puts the Republican Party first and has no qualms about putting our troops in harm's way and policing the world so long as the sheriff's badge reads "GOP."

Ron Burkle Confronts Life Without the Clintons and Instant White House Accessnew

With Senator Barack Obama winning the Democratic presidential nomination, and with a definite power shift within the party that's moving away from Bill and Hillary Clinton, political observers are already wondering if Burkle -- a top-echelon supporter of the Clintons -- will end up some kind of loser.

Without Clinton, Democrats Face Challenge in Arkansasnew

Though Democrats control the Arkansas statehouse, both the state's U.S. Senate seats, and three of four seats in the U.S. House, the party likely will be hard-pressed to win the state in November's general election.

Hillary is Looking Like a Sore Loser, Not a Leadernew

What I find most troubling is Clinton's hypocrisy and disengenuousness. Now she's insisting on "counting all the votes," which is code for counting all the votes in Michigan and Florida. Clinton and her campaign advisers were all for shutting out those two states when it appeared she wouldn't need their votes.
