Bernie Sanders is emerging as the Democratic front-runner — which is why the knives will be out for him at tonight’s debate.

In today's political discourse, you can say whatever you want about Bernie Sanders and his supporters without any baseline expectation of fairness.

Pundits claim that Bernie has a “problem” with minority voters. But the polling is clear — Sanders is advancing a vision of politics that challenges injustice in a way that black voters broadly support.
Despite breathless claims of a deepening political cold war, Democrats made gains this month in every Republican-leaning voting group.
We can avoid a barbarous future. But we'll have to massively redistribute wealth first.
Advocates for climate action should stop defending the rich.
