Kasich said if he were a university president he wouldn’t “let one of these hate speech speakers come”

    On Monday night, in the cradle of liberty, those disputes disappeared as Biden presented the Liberty Medal to McCain at the National Constitution Center, a nonprofit organization that touts bipartisanship and sits across the street from Independence Hall. Another reality has also brought them together: President Trump, whose global outlook has helped crystallize just how closely aligned these two elder statesmen really are. “We believed in our country, and in our country’s indispensability to international peace and stability and to the progress of humanity,” McCain said, growing unusually emotional at times during the address.

Biden said that the...

    Democratic gubernatorial nominee Ralph Northam and his Republican rival Ed Gillespie are pulling out a couple of the big guns Saturday, as they look to energize their respective coalitions less than a month out from Election Day. Mr. Northam plans to spend the morning campaigning with former Vice President Joseph R. Biden in Northern Virginia, and Mr. Gillespie is set to appear at an evening rally with Vice President Mike Pence in Southwest Virginia. The race is tight, according to polls, which has shown Mr. Northam, the state’s lieutenant governor, with a fairly consistent lead, riding strong support from voters...

RelatedShowtime Will Not Proceed With 'Guantanamo' Series If The Weinstein Company Is Involved “It is my hope there are more consequences.

    Bernie Sanders leads the pack of potential Democratic 2020 candidates with 28 percent of the vote, followed by Joe Biden with 17 percent and Elizabeth Warren at 12 percent, according to a new poll by Zogby. Between the three of them, they have 57 percent of the vote. Their average age on Inauguration Day 2021 would be nearly 76 years old. Okay, Trump’s no spring chicken either, he’d be 74. But so much for the Democrats injecting new blood into their leadership, at least for now. Of course, the poll shows several potentially attractive – to leftists anyway – but...

    Next week, Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders will introduce his long-awaited single-payer health care bill with a cadre of the Democratic 2020 prospects expected to sign on as co-sponsors. Not long afterward, Connecticut Sen. Chris Murphy, another potential 2020 candidate, will propose an alternative: Allowing individuals and businesses to buy into Medicare. Both ideas have, at times, been labeled "Medicare for all." But their differences also offer a glimpse at what's likely to be a defining debate within the Democratic Party in its next nominating contest: A full shift to a government health insurance system versus a partial step away from...

In a commentary published Sunday in The Atlantic, Biden wrote: “Today we have an American president who has publicly proclaimed a moral equivalency between neo-Nazis and Klansmen and those who would oppose their venom and hate.” He said Trump has “emboldened white supremacists with messages of comfort and support.” …

    Former Vice President took aim at President Trump’s comments that “many sides” led to violence at a white supremacist rally Saturday. “There is only one side. #charlottesville,” Biden tweeted. There is only one side. #charlottesville — Joe Biden (@JoeBiden) August 12, 2017 Trump had refused to single out the white supremacists who held the rally in Charlottesville, Va. in his condemnation of the violence there. A car struck a crowd of counter-protestors at the rally, leaving one dead. Two others were killed during the protests after a helicopter crashed. Those victims were Virginia State Police Department officers who were in...

    The United States won't officially elect its next President until 2020. Between now and then, we should all be focused on local elections, essential congressional races, and pushing for meaningful reforms addressing voting rights and criminal justice every chance we get. I'm all about that. However, here's what I know — the next presidential race has already started. Donald Trump has already begun political fundraising and potential opponents, including some from within his own party, are already having private discussions on what it would look like to beat Trump. This next campaign will be the longest, most expensive campaign in...

    Sen. John McCain was one of three Republicans who helped shoot down the "skinny" repeal of Obamacare early Friday morning, and two retired D.C. politicians reportedly helped talk him into the "no" vote. Former Vice President Joe Biden and former Sen. Joe Lieberman, I-Conn., both pressed McCain to oppose Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell's efforts to advance a plan that ultimately aimed to repeal and replace portions of Obamacare, according to a Washington Post report.....

    The new house is on the edge of Cape Henlopen State Park, just north of the boardwalk: three stories, six bedrooms, three fireplaces and an expansive view of the Atlantic Ocean. The new owners are Joe and Jill Biden, rich for the first time in their lives, thanks to a three-book publishing deal - two by him, one by her - that allowed them to purchase the $2 million vacation home in this beachiest of beach towns. Red, white and blue bunting hangs from the second-floor balcony. There's a small wooden sign, "A Promise Kept," over the entrance, and two...

    The Russian attorney whose campaign-season meeting with Donald Trump Jr. has caused headaches for the White House was cleared to enter the U.S. at the time of the visit by the Obama State Department, officials confirmed to Fox News late Thursday. A brief timeline released overnight helps to resolve questions over how Natalia Veselnitskaya even had legal permission to be in the U.S. And it also shows multiple Obama agencies were involved on multiple occasions in granting access to the lawyer after she was initially denied a visa. According to the timeline released by the Department of Homeland Security, the...

    Joe Biden should announce he’s running for president in 2020. Right now. Democrats need a singular voice representing the party. And as we saw in the recent Georgia special congressional election, that voice should not be Nancy Pelosi. Cut the coy. Cut the Mario Cuomo routine. Just throw down Joe. You know you want to. If you announce now, the next two years become a debate between you and Donald Trump. You become the shadow president. You’ve earned it. You deserve it. You regret you didn’t run last time. Because you’d probably be president right now. Beating Hillary in the...
