ICYMI: MSNBC’s PoliticsNation with Reverend Al Sharpton

The Constitution details at great length that the expansion of voting rights is essential to the nature of our democracy. It’s simply extraordinary that over the past couple of years the Republican Party has attempted to decimate voting rights in the U.S.

On MSNBC’s PoliticsNation, I joined Reverend Al Sharpton and Rep. Marcy Kaptur, D-Ohio, to discuss Ohio Secretary of State John Husted’s efforts to appeal a federal court decision which upheld early voting in the crucial swing state. Watch the video of last night’s show and comment below with your thoughts on Ohio’s early voting controversy.

Both candidates in the presidential election know the swing state of Ohio is critical to the election. President Obama is in the lead, but Romney is intensifying his efforts. Can Obama hang on to his lead? Rep. Marcy Kaptur, D-Ohio, and Catherine Crier, former judge, prosecutor, and journalist talk with Rev. Al Sharpton.

ICYMI: PoliticsNation on MSNBC

Paul Ryan may prove to be a hazardous running mate as the Romney campaign pushes forward on the campaign trail. Working class Republicans – when they really pay attention to the Ryan budget plan – are going to be extremely nervous about the economic possibilities that come with a Romney/Ryan ticket. Conversely, many economic conservatives will find themselves very uncomfortable with some of Ryan’s relatively radical social positions.

On Monday, August 13, I joined Reverend Al Sharpton and Margie Omero on PoliticsNation to discuss the latest feedback on Romney’s choice of running mate. Watch the clip below for a more in-depth analysis of what it is going to take for the Romney campaign to consolidate its base without ostracizing conservatives on the fence.

"As conservative as Rep. Paul Ryan is on budget matters, he is even further to the right on social issues. He co-sponsored a personhood amendment and is against abortion in all situations. Catherine Crier, author of "Patriot Acts: What America Must Do to Save the Republic", and Margie Omero, Democratic Strategist, join PoliticsNation to discuss Ryan's social beliefs." PoliticsNation
