How a Debate Misstep Sent Marco Rubio Tumbling in New Hampshire

nytimes.com — MANCHESTER, N.H. - Everything, it seemed, was breaking Marco Rubio 's way. Inside the Holiday Inn Express hotel, where Mr. Rubio and his top aides had camped out in a small conference room to prepare for last Saturday's Republican debate, marathon practice sessions were interrupted, giddily, by word of new endorsements from former rivals and fawning phone calls from donors.

Why Hillary Clinton Doesn’t Deserve Black People’s Votes

thenation.com — We should have seen it coming. Back then, Clinton was the standard-bearer for the New Democrats, a group that firmly believed the only way to win back the millions of white voters in the South who had defected to the Republican Party was to adopt the right-wing narrative that black communities ought to be disciplined with harsh punishment rather than coddled with welfare.
