While LEEWS appears to reference a pretty dated and laborous process which may remain useful for many, it has a modern and effective challenge trademarked as the M.A.D. Method. It's definitely worthy of research.

Here's one for noseholding corporate democratic koolaide drinkers like maintain to answer.

But she wont.

Would you vote for someone who supported the war in Iraq or one that would dare?

Maintain will hold her nose and expose herself to hypocrisy... Typical dolt corporate democrats are alike.

If Hillary Clinton was supposed to run away with this election starting with the democratic primary--- when the fix was in and the FBI let her off the hook on her criminal activities---

How come she didnt--Bernie kicked her ass.

And truthfully, people like koolaid drinking hilleristas cant explain why trump is tied with her in some polls...losing to him when 3rd party candidates are counted...

Shouldn't Hillary be running away with this election????

But she is not.

And she WILL lose to Trump----the democratic party can't fix the enthusiasm gap with their folks who vote multiple times.

Not this time anyway...

Trump has Florida wrapped up with 700,000 more voters than in 2012.

Face it the cult of personality will drive people to the polls for trump in Ohio Michigan indiananand Florida...trump will come close in pa.   

Why? Jobs, poor obama/clinton economy, and cult of personality..

Oh yeah, Hillary Clinton herself is a factor for her lack of numbers....and has destroyed her own career beyond repair---emails, classified information crimes, and pay to play politics...

So, hilarista nose holding koolaid drinking people like maintain..
Keep thinking you are right...thats what Donal and Jill want.

Ha!😉

One associate recently compared Hillary Clinton to D ick Cheney---because they are warmongers and he compared Donald Trump to George Bush Jr. Because they are both goofy and daft and it is a worthy comparison.

But I see these two the way I perceive many voters who will go for flash, cult of personality, and slickness over substance, mundane reality and policy.

On these two lines of psychological perception we have JFK vs. RMN.

...JFK will win everytime...

..guess who is whom with regard to this election.

...the fickle polls are manipulated right now...but the amount of people who came out to vote in swing states for the Republican and Democratic primaries dont lie.

Enthusiasm in this election and gut perception of "a winner" is only on one side this year.

Unless that PhD is from a well respected school, and you have an impressive publishing record plus experience plus connections, you won't end up teaching at State. Maybe as an adjunct for one or two classes, but that's about it.

Academic jobs, even at no name State U's, are insanely competitive right now. The majority of PhDs will not get an academic job.

Absolutely correct, a PhD degree from state will get you an adjunct gig and maybe slightly more.  But a specialized PhD for which there are no programs will yield nothing.  PhD's actually end up earning less than what they would of had they left off with a MA in the social sciences.

I have a Masters in Law & Public Policy.  I was searching for a ph.d. In some law discipline but was unsuccessful.

I'd advise against a PhD in Law, it is not a very popular degree and won't qualify you to teach at a law school since you do not have a JD and are not a lawyer.  Academic jobs are tight, you'd be better off going for a PhD in Political Science with an emphasis in Public Policy which would have much more utility.  Additionally online and foreign PhDs are a tough sell these days for job seekers.  Good luck.
The Masters was in Law&Public Policy. An identical PhD would not require a JD nor a law license to teach in it.
Same with Criminal Justice, or MOST legal subjects OTHER than law school.

Might end up teaching at State........but I don't think teaching is even the goal here.

Anyone considering Taft? ... I am not interested in being a lawyer but I have always wanted to study law. I

Over 20 years plus Taft has a good track record of graduates actually passing the state bar.  However since you say you do not want to be an attorney, might I suggest an accredited Masters in Legal Studies from Kaplan or other regionally accredited online provider.  It will be quicker and cheaper. If you still want a JD, then Concord is a good one because it is the only one regionally accredited and has more bells and whistles for its students.  Regionally accredited means that degree is accepted as a real graduate degree by other universities while the other law school's programs may or may not be.

google "online phd" there are several regionally accredited ones. Then go to "major" and pick a law subject
