America's new president baffles the world When it comes to foreign policy, the Trump Administration is speaking with many voices. In Europe last weekend, Vice President Pence and Defense Secretary Mattis had different messages. Secretary of State Tillerson has said almost nothing at all. And nobody knows what President Trump knows -- or whether he'll set the US in new and different directions with unexpected tweets or unscripted comments. He's already had to replace one National Security Advisor with another as the administration veers between traditional positions and radical change.
A nasty campaign for the White House is almost over The last few days may seem like forever, with candidates, surrogates and new TV and Internet commercials almost impossible to avoid. Donald Trump is telling himself to "stay on point," which means claiming, untruthfully, that Hillary Clinton is under a "criminal investigation." He’s trying to lower the turnout in urban centers, while Clinton is trying to increase it -- claiming that Trump is biased against blacks and Latinos. Do early voting and last minute polls mean the dynamic is really changing with so little time left to go?
The Bernie Sanders Phenomenon: How Long Will It Last? Less than 15 months ago, Democratic Socialist Bernie Sanders made a 10-minute announcement to a few reporters and hustled back into the Senate. Since then, millions have felt "the Bern," massive crowds have turned out, and Sanders has gotten enough votes to seriously contend for the Democratic nomination. Now he wants to define the issues and change the rules at this summer's convention. Will his supporters hold their noses and vote for Hillary Clinton? Can the campaign that came out of nowhere really become a "movement?"
Democrats Campaign Furiously Up to Primary Day As Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders are campaigning furiously today in California, it looks like the Democrats could be in for one of those this year. Sanders says he will carry on — regardless of whether he wins or loses tomorrow's primary.
The Democratic Party: Divided Again Bernie Sanders defeated Hillary Clinton in Michigan yesterday. It's already being called, " One of the greatest upsets in modern political history ." That's not just from Sanders' campaign but respected pollsters -- now trying to figure out why they were so wrong. In advance of the voting, With another debate tonight in Miami, Democrats are figuring how to keep the party together as the battle goes on. Clinton's still likely to have the delegates needed to win the nomination. Can she avoid repeating the mistakes of past divided conventions?
100 days of executive action: Accomplishment or posturing? President Trump's first 100 days have featured a flood of high-profile executive orders. Which ones do what he says they do, and which ones don't? How are Trump voters feeling now?
After Syria strike a new Trump doctrine emerges The President who promised an end to entanglements in the Middle East and snuggled up to Vladimir Putin has now outraged Russia with surprise missile attacks on Syria. That's raised questions about who's running the White House? We hear a variety of answers.
