On Monday, Warren and Clinton campaigned together for the first time, in Cincinnati, Ohio. The event was awash in personal chemistry. And since when has "gender balance" ever stopped a male Presidential candidate from choosing a male running mate -- to appeal to women or otherwise?

Thank you for reawakening a wave of excitement within the Democratic Party. Thank you for championing a list of issues that I could heartily agree with, and for refusing to be distracted from your agenda by the usual mudslinging and other negative campaigning tactics so common in politics today.

The roots of populism stretch back to the beginning of the end of the Roman Republic. The man who ultimately brought down the system was a wealthy and ambitious nobleman named Publius Clodius Pulcher, a populist demagogue who refused to play by the rules.

Bernie Sanders versus Donald Trump in the general election? How preposterous an idea! Of course, when writing one of these articles a good rule of thumb is to always point out how speculative the concept all is, which I dutifully did.

Spoiler alert! If Republicans were given the choice of Trump or "other," most Republicans would vote "other." However, because our election system is "first past the post" (FPTP), the winner takes all.

Something becomes true for him only when others believe that it's true. That is not the mark of a self-confident, self-respecting individual. Donald Trump may well be described as a narcissist, a braggart or a windbag. But an egoist? Definitely not.

Joe Biden certainly has got the media talking. All it really took was one leak to Maureen Dowd and a meeting with Senator Elizabeth Warren, and he's now seriously considering it. But a Biden candidacy bears political examination beyond the simple question of "Will he or won't he run?"

President Obama and other "centrists" largely managed to contain his party's populist wing throughout his first term. But the rise of Sen. Elizabeth Warren and her allies has emboldened what is now sometimes called the party's "Warren wing," as more and more Democrats sign on to the progressive populist agenda.
