Comey’s Ego

It never ceases to amaze the lengths to which reporters, pundits, even voters will go to defend or excuse what former FBI Director Jim Comey did to help Trump realize the *presidency*.  His self-serving explanations, designed to resurrect his reputation just in time for his book tour, offered in his 60 Minutes and ABC’s 20/20 interviews ring hollow.  Comey found it acceptable to break protocol...

How Long Must We Pay the Price for Ideologues?

Having gone silent in disgust watching the deflections of a Hillary-bashing media, I now raise my head to see a platform still offered to the reckless, rich Susan Sarandon to continue her anti-Hillary screeds.  Pundits and anchors denying culpability for Clinton’s election “loss” even while egging on misogyny and smear against her from factions left and right, foreign and domestic, are supposed to be better...

Hillary Clinton and What Happened – Why It Matters To All Of Us

Hillary Clinton’s moving account of What Happened in the 2016 election offers extraordinary insight into a woman’s journey at the highest level of politics and rings the alarm about what’s at stake for America in our current divided climate. While it’s heartbreaking to read Clinton’s comprehensive vision for our country, knowing what we lost, we will never overcome the double standards powerful women face in...

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...

Joe Biden is Wrong to Disparage Hillary Clinton

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...

FBI’s Comey’s Folly Was Being Ruled By Ego

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...

FBI Director Comey Hiding in Plain Sight

Hillary Clinton’s top campaign officials blame FBI Director James Comey for her loss last November, citing his reckless letter sent 11 days before the election. He falsely implied Hillary was under FBI investigation, thereby tanking her poll numbers. It is widely acknowledged that after her performance in their three debate match ups, she was cruising to victory against Donald Trump. Then Comey pulled his stunt....

The Value of Perez and Ellison Leading the DNC

Does the election of a new DNC Chair matter?  Yes.  If you can see it, you can be it. Presenting diverse roll models matter, whether that role model is a women or a person of color.  And no one can fault the broad and deep qualifications of a Hillary Clinton, Tom Perez or Keith Ellison.  As a longtime admirer of the work of Melissa McEwan,...
