Bao Nguyen and the Suicide Wing of the Democratic Party

Bao Nguyen, Garden Grove Mayor

Garden Grove mayor Bao Nguyen will be hosting a “political revolution” event next week aimed at furthering the Bernie Sanders campaign through congressional, US Senate, and state and local races.  While I’m delighted there’s finally some serious attention to all elections for progressives to engage and elect Democrats, I remain convinced Bernie Sanders isn’t the…

Hillary’s Post Convention Bump Raises Her Prospects

Hillary Clinton in OC in 2005

Candidates who finish second don’t get to set terms or call the shots.  And for his supporters, withholding support for Secretary Clinton because you’re #BernieOrBust just makes it all…
