Where "the Heartland" comes from

obsidianwings.blogs.com — One of the topics that's come up in several recent conversations around here is the term "Heartland": what parts of the US are the Heartland? How loaded is the term? Who uses it and why? ... etc. A quest!

These David Frum tweets perfectly explain why Rubio's debate glitch was so damaging

vox.com — I didn't watch last night's Republican debate, and catching up on it the day after, Rubio's programming glitch - in which he responded to allegations of robotically repeating talking points by robotically repealing his talking points - certainly struck me as funny : But was it bad in the kind of way that people would actually care about?

It's the one moment when we as a nation truly come together to reflect on our greatest achievements as a society - television, innovative chicken and cheese products , and over-the-top marketing.

Bernie Sanders' strong campaign is solving Hillary Clinton's biggest problem

vox.com — Thursday night's Democratic debate started out with an electrifying - and rare for Democrats - series of frank, back-and-forth blows over ideological questions. Bernie Sanders said the big problem with Hillary Clinton is that she is, in her own words, a moderate.

Bernie Sanders says if congress had listened to him, there'd have been no financial crisis

vox.com — Debating with Hillary Clinton Thursday night, Bernie Sanders argued that congress' decision to repeal an old law called Glass-Steagall over his objection lead to the financial crisis of 2007-2008. I think as secretary Clinton knows, there's nobody who fought harder - I was on the house financial committee at that point - I heard the arguments coming from Democrats and Republicans.

Hillary Clinton real theory of change can work - but liberals may not like all the changes

Sanders subtweets Clinton: “You cannot be a moderate and a progressive"

vox.com — Bernie Sanders offered some of his harshest criticisms of Hillary Clinton yet in a tweetstorm Wednesday, arguing that her September self-identification as a "moderate" is both accurate and incompatible with the idea that she is a progressive. You can be a moderate. You can be a progressive.

Donald Trump's Iowa performance was genuinely impressive

vox.com — Appearing on Morning Joe today, Donald Trump made the levelheaded observation that second place is better than third place. So there's something awfully odd about the Iowa caucus results being spun as both a big win for Marco Rubio and a big loss for Trump: It's interesting that Marco came in third place and they said it's one of the great victories in the history of politics.
