    Some Hillary Clinton donors are defecting to Joe Biden, resisting entreaties from the Democratic front-runner’s campaign to stand by her despite slipping poll numbers. A few of the fundraisers have gone public with their presidential preference. Others have quietly decamped and signaled their intentions to the Draft Biden 2016 super PAC that is working to prod the vice president into the race for the White House.

    We all know where former vice president Al Gore stands when it comes to climate change, but what about a presidential bid for 2016? His name has routinely been floated as a potential Democratic candidate at every primary since losing the presidency to George W. Bush in 2000, but unlike 2004 and 2008, the environmental activist has yet to publicly rule out the possibility of a run. In fact, he’s remained especially shy on the subject this time around, keeping us all wondering about what would be a major political comeback. But when Fusion’s Jorge Ramos had a chance to...

    The Democratic presidential candidate waxes lyrical about his time spent on an Israeli kibbutz in the 1960s. But which one? Haaretz tries to find out. The assignment should have been a no-brainer: Find out what kibbutz Bernie Sanders volunteered at in 1963 or 1964. The presidential candidate has described the time he spent on an Israeli collective farm as a formative experience. Not surprisingly, many Israelis have been wondering which exact kibbutz had such an impact on the Jewish socialist and rising star of the U.S. presidential campaign.

    For nearly a quarter-century, Hillary Rodham Clinton has played an outsized role in the nation’s consciousness as an advocate and a political survivor.

Asked to name something tangible that Clinton has actually accomplished, many voters come up blank. In polls and focus groups, Republicans are sensing a vulnerability in Clinton’s record that could compound the difficulties she is facing with the controversy over her decision as secretary of state to...

Martin O'Malley's purchase of furniture from the governor's mansion violated rules regarding state-owned property. When O'Malley and his family moved out of the mansion in January, they left with most of its taxpayer-purchased furnishings — 54 items that he bought at steep discounts because every piece had been declared "junk" by his administration. O'Malley and his wife, Baltimore District Judge Catherine Curran O'Malley, paid $9,638 for armoires, beds, chairs, desks, lamps, mirrors, ottomans, tables and other items that originally cost taxpayers $62,000, according to...

The answer, he claimed, is that the economy crashed in 2008 because of mistakes made by President Bush. This may be a good answer (or the best one available) from a political perspective. Trump is appealing primarily to disaffected Republicans who believe the GOP hasnÂ’t stood up for them sufficiently on issues relating to the economy (immigration is the best example). Attributing his pro-Democrat leanings to BushÂ’s handling of the economy makes political sense. Unfortunately, it doesnÂ’t make historical...

    US Sen. Claire McCaskill (D-Missouri) on Monday lashed out at Senate colleague and presidential hopeful Ted Cruz (R-Texas) over his support for real-estate mogul and GOP presidential candidate Donald Trump. In a tweet on Monday, McCaskill compared Cruz to a "lost puppy" hoping to scoop up Trump's followers if he implodes on the campaign trail. There's something unseemly about Cruz following Trump around like a lost puppy,hoping to get his leftovers when he finally flames out. - Claire McCaskill (@clairecmc) July 20, 2015 Cruz has recently cozied up to the real-estate magnate. He met with Trump in New York last...

    Finally, a politician who isn't afraid to take matters into her own hands. A state delegate in Maryland bared her breasts outside her ex-husband's home, grabbed them and started waving them around in an impassioned rant, court documents say. Ariana Kelly, a Democrat who sits in the state's House of Delegates, was allegedly arrested and charged with indecent exposure after a visit to drop off her two children escalated dramatically. According to court records, Kelly flew into a rage outside the Besthesda home of Barak Sanford, whom she divorced in November, when she found out that his new fiancée was...

    Black activists got angry when the Detroit Police Chief James Craig called the people responsible for shooting 12 people on a playground killing one of them urban terrorists. They complained about the insult and want him to apologize. Craig refused to back down and stuck to his guns. Craig said quite bluntly: “You will allow this to continue if you do nothing. It must stop now.” That’s when the president of the Detroit National Action Network (founded by Al Sharpton) Rev. Charles Williams took umbrage to Craig’s assertions that these thugs are urban terrorists: “We want to make it...

    It is not clear this will hurt him in the primary campaign, but it should be a red flag to supporters and advisors when Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker winds up simultaneously saying he supports his wife's cousin's gay marriage and he wants a constitutional amendment to allow states to ban gay marriage. In a revealing interview with ABC News, this ensued: "I love them, so I support them" Walker said of his wife Tonette's cousin and her partner. "Loves gotta be the focus of everything we do with our family and our close friends," Walker told [ABC News David] Muir......

    NEW YORK – At a hearing Monday in Manhattan in which he ruled filmmaker Dinesh D’Souza must continue community service for four more years, U.S. District Judge Richard M. Berman said he considers D’Souza’s violation of federal campaign-finance laws to be evidence of a psychological problem and ordered further counseling. D’Souza’s defense counsel Benjamin Brafman provided evidence to the court that the psychiatrist D’Souza was ordered to see found no indication of depression or reason for medication. In addition, the psychologist D’Souza subsequently consulted provided a written statement concluding there was no need to continue the consultation, because D’Souza was...

    Rep. Louie Gohmert took to the House floor to deliver an impassioned speech about history, with a lesson on hypocrisy, reminding the nation and those on the left the rabbit hole of removing all things perceived as racist – like the Confederate flag – is a deep one that leads right to the Democratic Party. The context of Gohmert’s remarks was the nationwide condemnation of the Confederate flag, leading to a congressional attempt to boot the banner from some federally managed properties. Gohmert first reminded the cause of the shooting at the Charleston, South Carolina, church that left nine dead...

    I am starting a petition today to ban the Democratic Party! The Dem. party was the party of slavery and resisted the civil rights movement! Every day that that the "party of slavery" and "Anti-Civil Rights" party exists is a painful reminder of decades of division, terror, injustice, and institutional racism that were forced on the United States of America. This party judged men and women based on the color of their skin and not the content of their character. Evil wins (#EvilWins) as long as this political party functions. Additionally, the democratic party logo, the donkey, is painful reminder...
