Is Bernie Sanders on an endless path to the Democratic nomination – and if so, will he be able to defeat President Trump in November? This week’s columnists, titled “Logic,” discuss the results of the New Hampshire primary and what they want to do in the next race. In the early part of the 20 primary primaries, Ross Douthat failed to rally around moderate Democrats’ single option for Sanders to Republicans. David Leonhard thinks Sanders is currently a less front-runner than him. And Michelle Goldberg has expressed concern that the recent turmoil in the judiciary points to Sanders’ vulnerability as a potential nominee.
Then, the columnists will speak on Love Day. Is it a provocative or irrational abusive act of love?
And finally, David offered a print midcentury magazine that not only travels over time, but also supplies worldwide.
The juice is sour
I’ve been an op-ed columnist for 25 years and I write about politics, religion, pop culture, sociology, and the places where they intersect. I can agree with the liberals that the Republican Party is very friendly to the rich. I was against Donald Trump in 2016 for the specific reasons of Donald Trump, but in general I think there are legitimate accusations of the populist movement in Europe and America, and I often like the people to the “reasonable” elite. I have written books about Harvard, the GOP, American Christianity, and Pope Francis; I am dealing with erosion. Benedict XVI was my favorite pope. I review films for national reviews and have strong opinions about many well-known television shows. I have three young children, two daughters and a boy, and I live in New Haven with my wife.
Writing primarily about politics, ideals and gender, I have been an Op-Ed columnist at The New York Times since 2017. Nowadays, people on both the right and the left use “liberals” as a representation, but Donald Trump’s nightmare of being president has made me an extremist and pushed me to the left. In 2006, I wrote three books on the dangers of right-wing populism in religious fundamentalist disguise. (The other two are about the global struggle for reproductive rights and the short path to politics, about a brave Russian immigrant who helped with yoga in the West.) I love to travel; Before long, after my husband and I escaped, we spent a year in backpacking across Asia. Now we live in Brooklyn with our son and daughter.
I’ve been working in the Times for 5 years and have been an op-ed columnist since 20 2016. I caught the journalism bug a long time ago – first as a kid in the late 1970s who liked to read the Boston Globe Sports Department, and later my hi Working as a teenager in school and college newspapers. I discovered that when my classmates and I kept complaining in print, for everyone to see, school administrators actually paid attention. I have since worked for The Washington Post as a Metro reporter and author of Business Week magazine. At the Times, I started out as a reporter in the business department and also became a staff writer for Times Magazine, the Washington Bureau Chief and the founding editor of The Upshot.
My politics have left the center. But I’m also on the right side of many Times readers. I think education reform has achieved a lot. I think two-parent families are good for society. I think progressives should be realistic about the domination of most of this country. However, for the most part, I am deeply concerned about today’s Republican Party, which has become dangerously extreme. Inequality, climate change, the rise of China – this country faces enormous challenges and it will be very difficult for both sides to resolve without the basic functioning of American democracy.
