nomination

Here's who shockingly won't be up for an award in September, and here's who notably will.
The Bank of England received 227,299 nominations from people suggesting figures from the world of science.
In a sign they really don’t care what Christine Blasey Ford has to say, Republicans have already scheduled the first vote on Brett Kavanaugh’s Supreme Court nomination for the day after hearing from his alleged attempted rape victim.
President Trump’s judicial advisor has been dropping hints on who will be chosen to become the next Supreme Court justice. But to ensure a smooth confirmation process in the Senate, there’s a delicate balancing act.
And that doesn't even count the cabinet replacements, who had to wait months during the Obama Administration for a vote. And
Will she be hounded by the accusation that she doesn't have a true "mandate" from the people?
One poll exists from New Mexico, but it is really too old to be very informative. Back in late February, Clinton was up over Sanders by 14 points (47 to 33 percent). That's not much to go on now, though.
But the fault was not in the rules, although they certainly can be improved. The fault lies with a party that for 50 years
I can now say I have felt the Bern, from beginning to end. I have seen how the Bernie revolution began and I have also seen it entering the homestretch of campaigning during the primary season, one short week before California and a few other states become the last to vote.
Can we all just take a deep breath? I'm speaking to many Democratic voters as well as the bulk of the mainstream media here, just to clarify. Because far too many seem to currently be going off the deep end. But from where I sit, this is an overreaction to a very short-term situation.
We're really in the home stretch of the Democratic primaries now, as the last few territories and the last eight states will all be voting in the upcoming weeks. Tuesday night, Oregon and Kentucky will weigh in, and then the last six states (who, for some unfathomable reason, all decided to go last this year) will finally get a chance to vote.
Republicans are finally coming around to the idea of a Trump presidency.
Today, I'm offering up my own clip show as a retrospective for how we all got to where we stand today: on the brink of Donald Trump essentially wrapping up the Republican nomination for the highest office in the land.
The nation's smallest state will vote tomorrow night. Not a whole lot of polling exists here, but it's pretty clear on the Republican side. Donald Trump will sail to victory here, with a huge margin. John Kasich looks to take second, with Cruz far behind.
Tomorrow's New York primary will be the decisive one, the pundits tell us. It will join a long list of other primaries and caucuses which were also deemed to be the crucial one which would decide the whole race.
Ryan's got enough problems right now as it is, since he hasn't really gotten anything done in the House this year. Just like John Boehner before him, the Tea Party extremist faction is holding everything hostage and gumming up the works.
How it all turns out is anyone's guess at this point, but at least one Republican faction will be able to say "we told you so" at the end of the process. The questions are who is going to be right, and what it will mean for the party going forward.
It would probably delight the late Justice Antonin Scalia to know that the fight over his successor was generating constitutional controversy. Indeed, like many controversies that Justice Scalia fueled, this one concerns not only the implications of particular clauses, but the very nature of constitutional law.
Weeks before the key upcoming Wisconsin primary, April 5, Trump was breezing. He had a cozy poll lead over Cruz. The state seemed in the bag. But Trump's mouth changed that.
Anderson Cooper just made some news by asking all three Republican candidates for president whether they'd honor their previous pledge to support the eventual Republican nominee. None of the three candidates now say they'll honor their loyalty pledge.
