Hillary, Don’t Apologize

Hillary, don’t you dare apologize. You ran a fierce campaign centering people of color, women, LGBTQ, people with disabilities, families and immigrants – all of whom are woefully underrepresented in government …and on Sunday talk shows.  You didn’t let us down. America let you down.  From the launch of your first campaign video, you showcased the best of us, of all stripe, striving together in

Media’s Hillary-Hate and Trump-Coddling Were Weapons To Silence Women

Shell shocked after seven months of Trump’s presidency, appalled in particular at his equivocating remarks defending racists after the disgrace of Charlottesville, we still struggle to understand how we got here. Roxane Gay’s NYT op-ed Hate That Doesn’t Hide states what so many of us feel: “Angry white men holding tiki torches and shouting their throats raw chanting “blood and soil,” spittle hanging from their

Kamala Harris Gets Hillary’d

When speaking of Hillary Clinton, anyone who ever bought or sold the line: “I’d vote for any woman just not THAT woman” can now put that twaddle in the dustbin where it belongs. This week, we saw accomplished career prosecutor, former California AG, US Senator and Democratic rising star Kamala Harris shushed by several of her male colleagues when questioning both AG Jeff Sessions and

Why Wonder Woman Matters

Wonder Woman shattered box office records this weekend, grossing $223 million worldwide and becoming the largest box office opening for a female director — ever.  Actress Gal Gadot is phenomenal in the title role, capturing Wonder Woman’s strength, charm and utter lack of guile.  Director Patty Jenkins offers up the most successful DC comic outing to date, telling a clear, wholesome, moving and inspiring story

Joe Biden is Wrong to Disparage Hillary Clinton

Asking that we “get over it” when Joe Biden insults Hillary Clinton is a knife that cuts both ways.  Given that we’re in the middle of Constitutional crisis via the Trump *Presidency*, why is former VP Biden given a pass to join the pile-on by disparaging Hillary Clinton? Why are we humoring him instead of firmly telling this #olderwhitemale to “get over it” and let

#TheResistance, Hillary and Onward Together

If the speed with which the #TrumpRussia investigation snowballs is in inverse proportion to the disaster the Trump White House can inflict upon our nation, it will only be due to #TheResistance movement.  Many polls report that women account for 80% of #TheResistance with Washington Post noting: “The women’s march was the largest protest in U.S. history.” Women are used to spearheading (and doing a

FBI Director James Comey, Flickr, labeled for re-use

Anybody waiting for me to feel sorry for FBI Director Comey’s fate can wait long. He. Did. This. To Himself. when he flouted FBI/DOJ protocols to spank Hillary Clinton in public for a non-crime while keeping his powder dry on the exponentially more serious situation with #TrumpRussia.  And while I, and other Democrats, are appalled by Trump’s firing of Comey for getting too close, the

Don’t Let Big Media Off The Hook

If reactions on social media are any indication, too many are giving The New York Times and other prominent news outlets a relative pass for their obsessive, irresponsible Hillary coverage while being forgiving of their elevating Trump with no more than pale vetting. To make money, they turned one of the most important decisions of our lifetime into a game show. Now Americans are living

What Should Hillary Be Ashamed Of?

It came as welcome news that Hillary Clinton “emerged from the woods” to speak at the recent Women In The World conference, inspiring the next generation of women leaders.  Yet as always, she faces a special set of rules from shame-faced pundits anxious to obscure their grotesque election coverage. Jonathan Allen and Amie Parnes have just penned a hatchet job (I won’t call it a

The Insecure Male Behind Hillary Hate

Hillary Clinton was recently chosen America’s most admired woman for an unprecedented 21st year, yet the boundless admiration she inspires is matched by irrational revulsion.  The chasm between positive and negative made it critical that we examine what her presence meant on the world stage as she vied to become our first woman President, yet too many looked away: “We’re past all that, we don’t
