Harrop: Time for Democrats to primary AOC

Hakeem Jeffries seems poised to replace Nancy Pelosi as leader of the House Democrats. A Black political moderate, the Brooklyn congressman is often likened to Barack Obama. Even-tempered, he is known to "play" with most of the children in Washington. And at 52, he represents generational ...

I love Thanksgiving and its traditions — the homemade centerpieces, the bad football, the interminable televised parades — but there's one I'd rather skip. It's an almost-inescapable tradition, one that usually rears its head just as you're sitting down to eat. Everyone's starving because ...
