Noam Chomsky: I assume that Hillary Clinton will win the Democratic nomination just because of the nature of our electoral system, which is basically now “bought” elections overwhelmingly, and the major funders will probably succeed at putting her across. What Bernie Sanders has achieved is pretty remarkable, but I doubt very much, in our existing system, he can make it beyond the primaries. So I think a fair guess is that Clinton will be nominated.

On the other side, it is probably going to be either Donald Trump or Ted Cruz. In my opinion, Cruz is scarier than Trump. Trump is a kind of wildcard, but Cruz is really dangerous, if he means anything he’s saying.

Ahmed Chalabi died. As recently as last year Perle and Wolfowitz were still touting him as a viable candidate for Iraq's Prime Minister slot.

My first campaign came down to one concept: inequality. Inequality in income. Inequality in wealth. Inequality in housing. Inequality in safety. Inequality in opportunity. Inequality in healthcare, even inequality in the air we breathe.
