  Online NewsHour | Vote 2004 | Politics 101 | Campaign Finance Reform
The system of funding political campaigns -- both to help elect a candidate or work toward the defeat of another -- is complex and often perceived by the public to be riddled with irregularities and loopholes.
Despite the newly implemented BCRA regulations, the drive of politically minded groups to spread their message is strong and the debate over how to regulate advocacy groups continues.
The commission decided in February 2004 that advocacy groups will now be restricted to using "hard money" donations for campaign communications, including for TV ads, that "promote, attack, support, or oppose" a federal candidate.

 Online NewsHour | Vote 2004 |Politics 101 | Third Parties
The answer, according to historians and scholars, is the political process that has relegated third parties to the sidelines and the nature of the parties themselves.
Third parties have had a major influence on U.S. policy and political debate despite their minor presence in Congress -- currently only one U.S. senator and one member of the House of Representatives is an independent.
When Ralph Nader announced in February 2004 that he would seek the presidential nomination, he was required to collect 1.5 million signatures in all states to appear on the ballot.

 Red Abbey View: Politics: Is the UKIP Bigoted?
British political parties are preparing their manifestos for a General Election which is widely expected to take place in May 2005.
Goodness, modern political parties tend to steer well clear of both of these areas and sometimes perform magical somersaults in trying to be all things to all people.
It is because of these arguments that serious mainstream political parties steer clear of religion and go out of their way to court the "pink vote." They assume, rightly, that these areas are minefields which would blow their political campaigns out of he water.

 Five Minutes to Midnight - June 2004 - Politics & Sport
“Politics and sport just should not mix,” is a common thought, yet one that rarely describes the truth.
The decision to tour Zimbabwe and play is a difficult one, and the countries visiting the country may still change their minds if the political situation worsens.
No matter what the decision is, however, it is clear to see that even sports can mirror the political situation of countries in different parts of the world.

Thus of the 28% of the electorate who voted for Reagan, 11% gave as their primary reason "he's a real conservative." In Reagan's "landslide victory" of 1984, with just under 30% of the electorate, the percentage dropped to 4% and a majority of voters hoped that his legislative program would not be enacted.
What these prominent political scientists describe is part of the powerful backlash against the terrifying "crisis of democracy" of the 1960s, which threatened to democratize the society, and, despite enormous efforts to crush this threat to order and discipline, has had far-reaching effects on consciousness and social practices.
On the eve of the 2004 elections, "three quarters of Americans say that the US should not have gone to war if Iraq did not have WMD or was not providing support to al Qaeda, while nearly half still say the war was the right decision" (Stephen Kull, reporting the PIPA study he directs).

With respect to the late House Speaker Tip O'Neill, all politics this year is not local — at least not in the grizzled Massachusetts politician's classic definition.
Here's a theory about why the 2004 presidential campaign has turned into the longest and nastiest of any in recent memory: It's partially because of a dearth of down-ballot contests for Congress and for governor.
In 2004, there are the swing states, there are states with a mildly interesting local race or two, and then there are true electoral deserts.

They gladly take out hard-earned money and laugh all the way to Congress, where they bribe our representatives who expand their corporate monopoly and silence our progressive voices.
They lined up some true heavy hitters from the world of progressive online politics, but the panels were so crammed that there was no real discussion, which is the whole point of a roundtable.

What Clinton to this day doesn’t get, is that it is he, and those on his side of the political and social isle, who have been generating and encouraging those changes in our culture, which have resulted in such destruction.
Political leaders, ball players, and to a larger degree than today, even film and TV stars were people which could be held up as examples.
History, I think, will record the greatest failure of the governments of the last 60 years, to be not in the financial or political areas, and not with it’s law enforcement, regarding guns, but in the cultural...

 Texas Monthly February 2004: Talking Politics
Most political journalism is written in the third person, because third person is more authoritative when you are trying to shed light on something the reader may not know about.
You want to convey a sense of, "This is the way it is"; the author is trying to give the reader an accurate sense of a personality or an issue.
Besides, judging by the letters we get, a lot of readers make up their mind about my political philosophy without knowing a damn thing about me. Might as well confuse them with the facts.

Politically, this is an example of Democrats needing to better police their fringes.
The Bush camp was probably politically wise to give no reason for this election to be racially polarized, even to the point of compromising its principles by signalling to the Supreme Court in the Michigan affirmative action case that it would not attack racial preferences.
Generalizing, it seems like most of the political parties in Western Europe represent either different brands of “left wing” socialism or fringe “right wing” isolationism/anti-immigrant nativism, with some of the worst tendencies of the American right, but few of the positive ones.

Because he talks about language and how it's used to frame the issues and political debate, something that the conservatives figured out long ago and a major reason why they are now in power.
We published a political book (some have called it THE political book of this jam-packed political book season), which is now #9 on this list -- slightly below The Sweet Potato Queens' Field Guide to Men, immediately following Fix-It and Forget-It Lightly and just before Relationship Rescue.
How strange that the authors, editors and publishers that usher books into the world have no input on how these books are categorized-perhaps by people who don't even take the time to read the books that cross their desks.

Supporters of the change insist the disproportionate blue-state effect is a coincidence, but they acknowledge that the proposal could hurt most in states that voted against Bush.
But in a political complication, some "blue" states that would be hit hardest by the tax change are led by Republicans.
If it adopted the proposal, the White House could be creating a rift with some of the GOP's biggest stars in those states, such as Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger and New York Gov. George Pataki, among others.
