The Left Column
Either of them would make a great president.
One big takeaway, for me, is that the two of them really respect each other, and however it turns out, they will be united in the important fight against the GOP.
Tonight, the Democratic Party won.
(AP) High-ranking officials in Governor Rick Snyder’s administration were aware of a surge in legionnaires’ disease potentially linked to Flint’s water long before the Michigan governor reported the increase to the public last month, internal emails show.
After the release of the emails, the Michigan Democratic party called for Snyder to step down on Thursday.
(politicus USA) Former Sec. of State Colin Powell is standing with Hillary Clinton after the State Department retroactively classified some of his emails and is refusing to release them to the public.
Powell reacted to an NBC News report that the State Department is retroactively classifying his emails by calling for all of his emails to be released.
Powell said, “I wish they would release them, so that a normal, air-breathing mammal would look at them and say, ‘What’s the issue?’ They were unclassified at the time, and they are, in my judgment, still unclassified.”
(The Hill) If he had to choose between them, “I think I would choose Trump, which may surprise some of you,” he said.
“The reason is, Trump has proven already he’s completely malleable,” Carter said. “I don’t think he has any fixed (positions) he’d go the White House and fight for. On the other hand, Ted Cruz is not malleable. He has far right-wing policies he’d pursue if he became president.”
(The Hill) Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump on Wednesday chided President Obama for visiting a mosque, a move the president made in part as a counter to Trump's controversial comments on Muslims.
"I don't have much thought, I think he can go to lots of places. I don't know, maybe he feels comfortable there," Trump said Wednesday on Fox News' "On the Record with Greta Van Susteren."
(Time) One of America’s greatest strengths right now is the fact that our young generation—the millennials—is also the biggest, most educated, most diverse and most digitally fluent generation in our history. And one thing my daughters have taught me about their generation is that they’re not going to wait for anyone else to build a better world; they’re just going to go ahead and create that world for themselves.
We can create the circumstances that give them every chance to do that, of course—to make sure they can grow up free from debt and free to make their own choices in a world that’s not beyond their capacity to repair. That’s why my administration has reduced student loan payments to 10% of a borrower’s income, so that young people who choose college aren’t punished for that choice. We’ve reformed our health-care system so that when young people change jobs, go back to school, chase that new idea or start a family of their own, they’ll still have coverage. We led nearly 200 nations to the most ambitious agreement in history to combat climate change.
(New Yorker) One thing Rubio is not, however, is moderate, or even close to it. And to the extent that far-right politics are actually off-putting to voters in a general election—to Democrats but also independents and younger voters, who are instinctually liberal on social issues—that poses a bit of a problem for the scenario in which Rubio is the savior of reason and the G.O.P. He ran for his Senate seat in 2010 with Tea Party support. He is firmly opposed to same-sex marriage and to abortion, with no exception for cases of rape or incest or the health of the mother—only for the mother’s life. In an article in National Review, in which Jim Geraghty lays out the case that “Marco Rubio Is Plenty Conservative,” he quotes Rubio in the first Republican debate: “Future generations will look back at this history of our country and call us barbarians for murdering millions of babies who we never gave them a chance to live.”
(Mediaite) Chris Christie isn’t letting his loss at the Iowa Caucus slow him down, because he made quite a few people in New Hampshire laugh today when he promised to “beat rear end” if they ever face off for a debate.
“You know the last person she wants to see on that stage in September? You’re looking at him,” Christie boasted. “She sees a federal prosecutor on the stage, I’ll beat her rear end on that stage, and after I do, she’ll be relieved because she’ll just be worried I was going to serve her with a subpoena.”
