Was Hillary Clinton’s “Hard Road” to the Nomination Her Fault?

Republican Candidates Punt on Charleston Shooting

The massacre of nine African American parishioners by a white male at Emanuel AME Church in Charleston last week cried out for leadership on gun violence, racism and the Confederate flag, which still flies on capitol grounds in South Carolina. Republicans once again found themselves in the awkward position of fearing to irritate their own party powerful by speaking truth to power. Jeb Bush “didn’t...
