Donald Trump's vulgar video last week and the release of more Hillary Clinton campaign WikiLeaks Monday are perfect examples of why Florida needs to dump early voting and return to Voting Day.

Tom Rooney
Florida Republican Congressman Tom Rooney is rolling the dice, making one of the biggest gambles of his political career.

What an apt moment for a presidential debate, coming after the release of a video showing the shockingly vulgar comments of GOP presidential nominee Donald Trump, and after more signs of a party implosion.

Vladimir Putin's serial humiliations of America's bewildered secretary of state regarding Syria indicate Putin's determination to destabilize the world. Here is an even more ominous indication of events moving his way: On just one day last week, Italian ships plucked 6,055 migrants from the Mediterranean.

Mike Pence
After his strong debate performance against Tim Kaine, Mike Pence is now the subject of 2020 presidential buzz.

As we get ready to watch the second presidential debate, you might be scratching your head about a tale of two countries. In Trump’s telling, America is a nation in decline that needs a turnaround. Clinton sees a leading world power that should continue on the positive trajectory created under the Obama administration. As business school professors who specialize in the human side of organizations, there is one thing - that many may find surprising - each candidate needs during this next debate: a story.

Tim Kaine and Mike Pence
Mike Pence was the calm, cool and collected one Tuesday night when he and Tim Kaine took the Longwood University stage in Farmville, Va. for their first and only vice presidential debate.

My favorite bumper sticker I've never seen: Commas matter.

Let’s not beat around the bush. This is no ordinary election, it’s a battle for America. We have two very different presidential candidates, who are selling two very different visions of the kind of America we had in the past, the kind of America we have right now, and the kind of America we should have in the future.

Patrick Murphy

Only in the strangest-ever presidential election could a former beauty queen's weight be considered a deal-breaking issue of, if I may, gargantuan proportions.

And now, less than six weeks from the election, what is the main event of the day? A fight between the GOP presidential nominee and a former Miss Universe, whom he had 20 years ago called Miss Piggy and other choice pejoratives.

Fidel Castro with his brother Raul, right, on Dec. 21, 1998
Donald Trump supporters can disparage many of the meritless, petty attacks on their candidate, from the so-called "Star of David scandal" to the holes-in-Melania-Trump's-immigration story. I don't blame them. I disparage them, too. But I must tell you this: If Trump secretly conducted business in communist Cuba while Fidel Castro was its president, the Republican presidential nominee should be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law, not elected to the highest office in the land.

Gov. Jeb Bush was universally acclaimed for his steadfast leadership during the torrent of hurricanes that ravaged Florida during his terms in office. And, indeed, he deserves everyone’s praise, because he did a remarkable job preparing Florida for hurricanes. But then he really shone by getting into the details of helping communities recover post-hurricane.
