in The Bay and the 'Burg/Top Headlines by

On the campaign trail last year, an ebullient Jeb Bush used to talk about how we were on the verge of the greatest time to be alive ever, with a limitless future ahead. “We’re on the verge of where my little boy Jack, my four day-old Jack is going to live until he’s 130 years old,” Bush told hundreds of Republican activists at a New Hampshire Republican Party summit in April of 2015.

Trying to set the mood from the onset, Matthew…

Traditionally, the biggest news there (or in the days before) is the revelation of the running-mates of the respective nominees. We can speculate about who might be the Republican VP nominee later, but let’s focus this…
