Clinton's email problem continues -- and her non-response isn't helping her much. http://lat.ms/1WmjPk7
Donald Trump isn’t the only presidential candidate with credibility problems. The State Department ’s inspector general delivered his report on Hillary Clinton ’s emails on Wednesday -- and it wasn’t good news for the presumptive Democratic candidate.

Obama's pivot to Asia: Any time someone tells you it's not about China, it's about China. http://lat.ms/1YS106j
When President Obama declared in 2011 that he wanted U.S. foreign policy to pivot to Asia, some derided the move as a clumsy attempt to flee the messy conflicts of the Middle East.

Donald Trump has disrupted politics -- and political science, too. Scholars say he breaks their forecasting models http://lat.ms/1sikfuQ
Ray Fair of Yale University says that if his election forecasting model is correct, the Republican nominee is likely to win the presidency by a convincing margin. John Sides of George Washington University agrees; the “fundamentals,” he says, give the Republican about a 60% chance of winning. Alan Abramowitz of Emory University gives Republicans a solid shot at the White House too; his model gives the GOP the edge — but in “a very close election...

Bernie Sanders says he'll "knock his brains out" to elect the Democrats' nominee. His rhetoric will make that harder
Bernie Sanders has plenty of sound reasons for continuing his presidential campaign, but now that Donald Trump is the apparent Republican nominee, he needs to make a change in tone.

Obama is sending 250 ground troops into eastern Syria to fight ISIS. Whatever happened to the slippery slope?
President Obama is pursuing two different strategies in two halves of Syria. One is working; the other is not.

One thing we know about the next president: He/she won't get a honeymoon. Americans are already pre-polarized  http://lat.ms/1WlUuVT
The presidential primaries are a long way from over, but they've already produced an unhappy paradox: Both parties appear headed toward nominating the two most unpopular candidates in the country.

Should Democrats panic about polls that show Trump ahead? Not yet -- but they still have plenty of reasons to worry. http://lat.ms/1RqS6Xv
Democrats hoped this presidential election would be a cakewalk. In their eyes, the presumptive Republican nominee, Donald Trump, spent most of the spring alienating big chunks of the electorate, beginning with women. Meanwhile, the presumptive Democratic candidate, Hillary Clinton, has run a careful, well-funded, well-honed campaign. What could go wrong?

All politicians bend the truth. Only Donald Trump has the chutzpah to lie about things that are easy to check. http://lat.ms/1Xmr1vB
All politicians bend the truth. All politicians spin the facts. But Donald Trump is mounting an audacious experiment in mendacity: How brazenly can a candidate lie and get away with it?

Can Clinton rebut Trump's "Crooked Hillary"? One way: talk like George Clooney about campaign reform http://lat.ms/1XlmOIH
Donald Trump dispatched his Republican rivals by branding each one with an insulting but memorable nickname: “Lyin' Ted” Cruz, “Little Marco” Rubio. As the general election campaign nears, Trump has settled on a label for the likely Democratic nominee: “Crooked Hillary.”

#NeverTrump? Never mind. If history is any guide, GOP leaders will grit their teeth and fall in line. http://lat.ms/1Y8GLRe
Rarely in modern history has a party appeared as divided over its nominee as Republicans are over Donald Trump. But will his GOP critics really keep their backs turned through November, or will they come around?

Indiana GOP voters have one last chance to derail Trump. Here are two reasons they should opt for Cruz instead http://lat.ms/1SPHTLw
Over the next six weeks, Republican voters in the remaining primary states from Indiana to California face an unenviable choice.

Today's media discovery: the New Trump -- kinder, gentler, statesmanlike and strategic. But is it real?
Donald Trump's victory in his native New York on Tuesday was huge, as the candidate would say. Next week's primaries in five other Northeastern states will probably be good for Trump, too. From Connecticut to Pennsylvania and Maryland, “New York values” aren't an epithet; it's Trump's main rival, Ted Cruz, who stands out as something of an alien being.
