I can't sign in to post a comment. What should I do?

To post a comment, click the black "Sign In" button at the bottom of any article:



A pop-up window will open (if it doesn't, make sure pop-up blockers in your browser are turned off), at which point you can sign in using your AOL email or screen name and your password for those services. You can also click to "Get a Free AOL Account" if you don't already have one (you'll be redirected to a setup screen, and you can then return to the pop-up login window to sign in to Politics Daily with your new account info). This is what the pop-up window looks like:



When see a "signed in" message instead of the black "Sign In" button, you are set to type in and submit your comment.



If your comment doesn't appear on the site and you aren't sure why, read below for more about our moderation policy.

Why am I required to sign in with an AOL email or screen name to post a comment?

Anonymous commenting, while occasionally valuable, is too often abused on websites today, especially in the political arena. The AOL email/screen name identification system is meant to make commenters own up to what they say while discouraging those who prefer to attack or disrupt without accountability.

Why is my comment not appearing on the site after I've submitted it?

In order to foster a refined "civilogue" on each of our articles, our team is now reading all comments before publishing them on the site. While this will require a small delay between the submission and publication of a comment, we believe that the resulting discussion between only productive, thoughtful voices will be worth it, and we ask for your patience as we work to achieve this goal. Comments that offer personal attacks (on writers, other readers, Nancy Pelosi, George Bush, or anyone) will not be published, nor will any vulgarities, trolling, spam or other submissions that do not contribute to the quality of the discussion.

We are continuously looking to improve our experience and features and this change to our home page, www.politicsdaily.com, is one of many improvements that we have been working on recently. We always strive to give our users the best experience possible, and we believe this new design represents our commitment to quality and content from top journalists.
