Anger Is Not an Ideology

Anger Is Not an Ideology

In my years of writing about politics I’ve always been intrigued when people refer to political ideology as a negative. It’s not at all uncommon to hear someone described pejoratively as “ideological.” I understand the point being made. Hidebound ideologues, more interested in purity than pragmatism, are an obstacle not only to their own objectives

Senator Heidi Heitkamp Apparently Bullied Into Not Voting for a Presidential Candidate

The last we checked in with North Dakota Senator Heidi Heitkamp she was under fire from the far-left wing of her own party for being a supporter of Hillary Clinton. Heitkamp’s backing of Clinton goes back a long way. In 2013 the Senator signed a letter with every other female Democrat in the U.S. Senate

Voting For Sanders, North Dakota’s Democrats Move To The Left Of Relevance

At the national level Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton is struggling mightily to unite her party even as her opponent, Senator Bernie Sanders, continues to win in some states. That made North Dakota’s caucus last night kind of important, as implausible as that might seem. Normally our state is almost irrelevant to presidential politics, but

This Is Why North Dakota Will Go To Donald Trump In 2016

Before and after Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump visited the Williston Basin Petroleum Conference in Bismarck North Dakota’s Democrats were making a lot of political hay. Senate candidate Eliot Glassheim has called Trump’s rhetoric “offensive, inexcusable and even dangerous.” “Donald Trump represents fear, ignorance, and hatred while demeaning women,” House candidate Chase Iron eyes has

Bernie Sanders Visit Shows That Today’s Democrats Are Bad For North Dakota

The fawning and gushing from North Dakota’s Democrats over the visit by Senator Bernie Sanders, the septuagenarian socialist who is running for president, has been a bit much over the last few days. But cutting through the miasma of adoration, Sanders did force our state’s liberals to reveal something honest about themselves. Every election cycle

Bernie Sanders Coming To Fargo

North Dakota is certainly getting a lot of attention from the presidential campaigns this cycle. Ted Cruz, Ben Carson, and Carly Fiorina all visited the NDGOP state convention last month, though the latter two had ended their campaigns and were serving as surrogates at the time. Donald Trump is set to visit the state later

Lucky For Them: North Dakota Democrats Are Not At Risk Of Losing Automatic Ballot Access

There’s no question that North Dakota Democrats are in a bad spot. Their statewide convention begins in just 17 days, the deadline for submitting candidates for the June primary vote is just 28 days away, and as I write this they’ve yet to announce a single statewide candidate. Interestingly, the Democrats have scheduled their state
