What we have here is a man who wants desperately -- make that has a desperate need -- to be taken seriously, to be revered, respected and adored. And yet he undermines himself at every turn. Donald Trump is his own worst enemy; and he's either too stupid, or too irrational, or too plain crazy to figure it out. He humiliates himself. He makes himself a laughing stock. He's turned himself into a global joke.

A few months ago I watched Isabel Allende's Ted Talk on living passionately at 71. It really inspired me. I've done a lot of thinking about age and aging since, and I've come to the following conclusions.

Canadian foreign policy has often been said to be principally a policy toward the United States with other countries taking second place politically and strategically.

This Obama speech was so flat, so monotonous, so uninteresting. But Florida Senator Marco Rubio had been carefully chosen by the Republican Party bigwigs to offer the party's answer to Obama. The Republicans must be insane.
