Hillary Clinton will likely have a unique chance to remake the federal judiciary

Hillary Clinton will likely have a unique chance to remake the federal judiciary
Updated by Matthew Yglesias @mattyglesias [email protected] Aug 22, 2016, 10:00a


Hillary Clinton has the capacity to do something that almost never gets discussed in the campaign: change the ideological landscape of the federal judiciary for a generation. It could be one of the defining features of her legacy.

In part, that will be a consequence of getting to fill the Supreme Court vacancy left open by Antonin Scalia — creating the first progressive Supreme Court majority in decades and opening the door to much more expansive efforts at progressive legal advocacy.

But it more subtly reflects a Clinton administration’s likely impact on lower courts.

Ratings Change: 7 States Shift Toward Clinton in Electoral College

Ratings Change: 7 States Shift Toward Clinton in Electoral College
Democrat projected to win 332 electoral votes — she needs 270 to win

Posted Aug 22, 2016 5:00 AM By Nathan L. Gonzales





Donald Trump appears to be drowning in the wake of the conventions.

The GOP presidential nominee was in a precarious electoral position even before the conventions because of his high unfavorable ratings and penchant for controversial remarks. The four days in Cleveland were supposed to unite the GOP but appear to have done the opposite, as Trump has lost ground to Hillary Clinton in national and swing-state polls.

While the overall numbers in the Electoral College haven’t changed, certain key states appear to be slipping out of Trump’s reach while a few reliably Republican states are coming into play. We’re changing the ratings in seven states toward Clinton and just one in Trump's direction.

What if Trump won't accept defeat?

What if Trump won't accept defeat?
As their nominee unravels, Republicans worry where his scorched-earth, rigged-election rhetoric leads the GOP and the country.
By ELI STOKOLS 08/22/16 05:01 AM EDT

Donald Trump is on track to lose in November and to refuse to accept the legitimacy of that Election Day result. That’s a problem not just for Hillary Clinton but for both political parties and the country. For everyone, really, other than Donald Trump.

By hiring Breitbart News’ Steve Bannon, a media provocateur in his own image, and accepting the resignation of the man who was supposed to professionalize him, Trump is signaling the final 78 days of his presidential campaign will be guided by a staff that indulges his deeply held conspiracy theories and validates his hermetically sealed worldview.

The 4 ways Republican lawmakers are warning of a looming GOPocalypse

The 4 ways Republican lawmakers are warning of a looming GOPocalypse
By Amber Phillips August 22 at 12:05 PM


After Trump's terrible first few weeks of the general election, actual Republican elected officials got in on the doom and gloom action. That doesn't mean they're not voting for their party's presidential nominee. They're just saying that his campaign could mean the end of Republican congressional dominance — or even the party itself.

NEW YORK (AP) — Ryan Lochte lost his first major sponsor when Speedo USA announced it is dropping the swimmer over a drunken incident during the Rio Olympics that he initially described as an armed robbery.

As part of the decision, Speedo said Monday it will donate $50,000 of Lochte's fee to Save The Children to benefit needy youngsters in Brazil.
