Starting to Look a Lot Like Christmas

John Kerry Not Ruling Out 2020 Bid for President

Former Secretary of State John Kerry on Tuesday did not rule out running for president in 2020, keeping his name among a growing list of prospective candidates vying to be the Democratic nominee. . .

Hillary Will Run Again

Get ready for Hillary Clinton 4.0.

True to her name, Mrs. Clinton will fight this out until the last dog dies. She won’t let a little thing like two stunning defeats stand in the way of her claim to the White House.

And if that wasn’t enough good cheer:
