Hello, Chuck

Yes. When January 20 arrives, the person taking the oath of office should be a president for all Americans. No question.

However, it looks like tribalism in our country is a huge impediment to that happening, and in some ways, this election may be shaping up as a …

Dr. Arum

Thanks for commenting on court interpretation. I'm sure you would agree that the purpose of our federal court system is to interpret laws that fall within its purview. That interpretation should be grounded in the rights and protections guaranteed by the Constitution, and o…
