Post in General Election Polls
The first general election polling map shows an uphill battle for Taylor, but ample opportunities for all of the candidates.

Post in Nick Rhodes Presidential Campaign
The morning after Super Tuesday, Senator Rhodes met with supporters and reporters in a press conference at his campaign headquarters in Charleston, South Carolina to discuss the future of his campaign.

"I had hoped we could turn the tide on Super Tuesday, but the momentum was just wasn't on our side. For that reason, I am suspending my campaign for the presidency. However, this isn't a defeat--not by a long shot. We entered this race with a vision that all Americans could get behind and we got that message across. I'm immensely grateful you gave me that opportunity."

A few days later, when asked by reporters whether or not he'd endorse Bayer, Rhodes replied,

"I'm open to it, but I haven't been all that excited with some of our contrasting viewpoints from the primary. I'd need to see who'll be on his team--the Cabinet, the running mate--until I know whether he's really committed to putting America first."

Post in Nick Rhodes Presidential Campaign
After it is revealed that a prominent supporter of Senator Bayer has a scandalous past, Senator Rhodes goes on offense. While coming from a fundraiser in New York, he says "If these are the sort of crooks that Bayer attracts, I'd be very concerned for our country if he's allowed to become our party nominee."

Democratic Debate 1
The first Democratic Debate being held in Cleveland, Ohio will focus on the issue of the War on Terror. Each candidate will get an opportunity to give an opening statement within the first 24 hours and a closing statement within the last 24 hours. Each candidate will then be asked two questions and must choose the closest answer to their position. The candidate may give a more detailed statement, but it must not stray from the option that they chose. The other two candidates will then have the remainder of the 72 hours to challenge the person on his choice.

Candidates may give their opening statements in this topic for the next 24 hours.

The surprising decriminalization of homosexuality in the Ottoman Emire
On August 9, 1858, the Ottoman Empire implemented a new penal code as part of an overall period of reform that lasted nearly 40 years. This new criminal code omitted the crime of homosexuality, thus decriminalizing homosexuality in the Empire and its successor, the Republic of Turkey. That’s 124 years before you couldn’t be arrested for being gay in the UK, and 145 years before the United States!

Surprised? I was too. We constantly hear tragic stories of LGBT discrimination, persecution, and hatred in the Muslim world. It’s not an exaggeration to say that being gay can get you killed in some Muslim countries. So how can it be that the Ottoman Empire, the very epitome of Islamic power for hundreds of years, would not outlaw something that some modern Islamic governments think should be punishable by death?

It turns out that this homophobia that we see is a relatively recent phenomenon. During the Islamic Golden Age (from about the 8th century to the 13th century), Muslim societies were remarkably accepting of homosexuality.
