Both parties have the Governorships of New Jersey and Virginia to fight in November 2017, which often act as an indicator of what will happen in the midterms. These will be the next acts in an unfolding electoral drama.

Something Within Keeping It Great

It is still a great country, as a close friend reminded me recently. I can vouch for that. But here's the thing: greatness comes with an admission of mistakes, a campaign to make reparation and the willingness to remember, if only for the purpose of avoiding previous mistakes. Moving forward, politics has to be about keeping America great. That's the spirit!

As the world analyses the result of the US Presidential election, there's one result you might have missed. On Tuesday one state made a symbolic breakthrough: Maine became the first US state to scrap First Past the Post.

Trump Has Won, Now Liberals Must Wake Up

No matter how contemptible, deplorable and unfathomable we believe Trump's victory to be, we must start listening to the left-behinds and offer them a passionate, liberal alternative that gets them in the gut. Otherwise, we condemn ourselves to irreparable social divides for generations to come.

Psychologising Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump

Trump might want to try new things, which renders himself as a more risky option. However, beforehand predictions often fail. In any case, the new President must be supported by everyone and history will decide whether he/she was successful.

Clinton Vs Trump - The Electoral College Is Key, Often Misunderstood And Could Be About To Make A Big Shift

If nothing changes at this point, then Hillary could be heading for a win in the Electoral College on a similar scale as Obama. However, if Trump's share of the vote collapses even more, then she could make a seismic change in the way the map looks and the word "landslide" might come into play.

Sexual Harassment Is A Serious Issue Mr Trump. Take It Seriously

From groups of men in Lebanon laughing about sexually harassing women to watching the smiles spread over the faces of men throughout Latin America as I've complained of sexual harassment, there is no doubt to me that there are many men around the world that enjoy harassing women.

Clinton Vs Trump - Why This Election Is Different

Mark Malcomson CBE

The next four weeks can be expected to produce more twists, turns and most likely outrages. The process can be described as horrific, but like a horror film or a bad soap-opera it is hard to avert your eyes and I feel we will be transfixed until the end.

The Seven Longest Days In Donald Trump's Life

The last week of the presidential campaign has had enough news to fill an entire election cycle. Just seven days ago the narrative was an ascending Trump who only had to stand still to win the first debate against the woman he was going to declare as crooked and whose husband he was going to re-impeach.

In Praise of Sanders

Megan Sherman | Posted 19.05.2017 | UK Universities & Education

Sanders insists on the alternative to apathy and alienation; grass-roots democracy and civic participation in a vibrant and flourishing campaign. It is the best antidote to Trump: politics with a human face, not politics with cartoon farce.

Antonin Scalia Died in Texas This Week And the Rest of the World Should Pay Attention.

The drama occurred Saturday morning, when a 79-year-old man named Antonin Scalia died of a heart attack in his sleep. In Texas. So what you say? The man wasn't just any man. He was a member of the US Supreme Court. One of nine non-elected, lifetime appointees on a mission to maintain the Greatest Democracy the World Has Ever Seen™.

It is 4 days before the Mid-Term Elections when the control of the US Senate will be decided. The US House of Representatives is currently under Republican control and this is unlikely to change.

What Can Major Events Like the US Election Tell Us About Our Digital Infrastructure?

For businesses, the dangers of increased and unmanaged traffic levels over corporate networks are immense. Each application running over a network (like Twitter, or videos, or Facebook), drains the network's resources a little.

Mainstream Mitt and the Race for the Middle

James Davis | Posted 04.12.2012 | UK Politics
James Davis

Obama missed more than one opportunity to go on the offensive and force his opponent to reveal the details of any of those unseen "plans" he kept referring to (I counted at least four). But I'm not so sure that Romney will emerge the ultimate winner of this debate. By showing how quickly he is willing to throw off the cloak of the Republican right in order to appeal to mainstream Americans, he may have served to alienate both groups.

Why the Views of the Ratings Agencies Are Clearly Overrated

I have written about today's topic a fair few times in the past, but Friday's late announcement by the ratings agency, Fitch, that they were putting the UK's credit rating on a 'negative outlook', cannot be passed up.

Forget the Flip-Flopping, it's Romney's Nationalism That Worries Me

Justin Cash | Posted 01.12.2012 | UK Politics
Justin Cash

The values that he holds are so overtly American that there seems little leeway for consensus, even with Democrats. He's moved to the right of his moderate Massachusetts governing since entering the election race, sure, but it appears his Americo-centrism has ballooned also.

Presidential Elections, American Expats and Taxes

During the 2008 election season, American expats around the world were all fired up and turned out in record numbers to vote during the November elections. But what did we get in return? We got FACTA. We got treated like tax dodging criminals by the IRS.
