Newton mayor, governor hopeful discusses his state policy vision

Setti Warren, two-term mayor of Newton, spoke about his experience and legacy as a public servant and his goals for state policy at an event on Tuesday night in Paige Hall. While Warren, who is reportedly considering a run for governor of Massachusetts as a Democrat, has not made an official announcement, he told the Daily that […]


The Arena: The Democratic blues

Who would’ve thought it would be the Democrats in such disarray after these elections? Coming into Tuesday’s elections, the talking heads (and your favorite columnist) were predicting the inevitable schism of the Republican Party. Instead, we have a president-elect who has never held office and a Democratic Party on the ropes. There is no two […]


The Arena: From across the pond

If you have been following my Instagram lately, you will have noticed that I am studying abroad in the United Kingdom this year. To be honest, it’s a bit of a bummer to miss out on the last month of the presidential campaign. It’s even more of a bummer having to wake up at 2 […]


The Arena: The scoreboard

My favorite part of the first presidential debate was Donald Trump’s reaction to it. In the face of a debate that was a draw at best, the Republican candidate proclaimed victory. Trump conveniently cited several (unscientific) polls showing him ahead, such as Fox News’ poll, completely ignoring the response of the majority of analysts and, […]


The Arena: Bern after reading

In explaining the Electoral College to non-Americans (and occasionally Americans), I like to use the “points” approach. Every state is worth a certain number of points, and a candidate needs to win a majority to win it all. And yeah, it really doesn’t matter what the overall population thinks. Points. It’s all about points. Bernie […]


The Arena: March Madness

Apparently Google searches about moving to Canada have spiked in the last month. Part of the effect is probably heartthrob and “The Arena”-favorite Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, who was just in Washington, D.C. But I’m honestly not sure that Canada won’t build a wall to keep Americans out with the way these elections are going. On […]


The Arena: Rubiover

With the internship season rolling around, resume-fudging is at its peak. You never know what special skill will get you that gig with Google. But if you’re looking for accomplishments to put on your résumé, look no further than the Republican primaries. You (and I) both earned as many delegates as Marco Rubio did on […]


Tufts students take to the polls on Super Tuesday

Students who are registered to vote in the state of Massachusetts headed to the polls yesterday to cast their ballots in the state’s primary election. Massachusetts was one of 13 states and one territory to hold primaries and caucuses on the day known as “Super Tuesday.” In Massachusetts, former Secretary of State and New York Senator Hillary Clinton (D) won the […]


Op-ed: Why Hillary?

By now, we’re sure you have seen the media coverage — both positive and negative — on the woman we hope will be inaugurated as our next president, but how much do you know about her and her supporters? Though you may be a strong Hillary supporter, you may still be undecided or supporting Bernie […]
