Was Hillary Clinton’s “Hard Road” to the Nomination Her Fault?

Hillary Clinton was just profiled in New York Magazine by the gifted Rebecca Traister, who wonders if Hillary’s road to the nomination needed to be as hard as it was. In her piece, Hillary Clinton vs. Herself, Traister posits Hillary made her path more difficult owing to her “pathological” need for privacy and purported hatred of the beltway press.  While she fairly reports Clinton’s gift...

Why Is It Hillary’s Job to Make Nice?

Hillary Clinton received the usual smack talk from beltway press for her choice to echo her winning 2000 Senate run by making her 2016 Presidential campaign a “listening tour,” eschewing huge rallies in favor of more intimate grass root gatherings . Given that she is 90 delegates away from being the first woman in history to be a major Party’s standard bearer, her campaign, a...

Trump’s Big Mistake With Hillary

Trump’s Big Mistake With Hillary

Donald Trump is making the same mistake with Hillary Clinton his misogynist brethren have made.  Trump assumes that the sexist cabal whom he currently leads is representative of the American electorate.  Trump, Cruz, Jeb, Gowdy, Reince, their insecure white maleness on display for all to see, are scared to death of her. They therefore revert to 12 year olds insulting Hillary’s womanhood, thinking that will...

Hillary’s New York Win and the Democratic Nomination

Hillary Clinton’s resounding win of the New York Democratic Presidential Primary yesterday, while expected, was a proud moment for the campaign and for all of us. Concentrating on intimate events and local outreach, Hillary’s retail politics echoed her “listening tour” back in 2000 when she first became Senator of the state. Her victory speech was presidential in its inclusivity, gracious in her mention of Bernie...

Yes, Hillary is Trustworthy

Hillary Clinton is rated by Politifact, a Pulitzer Prize winning organization, to be more honest and trustworthy than any candidate running in the 2016 election on either side. Jill Abramson, formerly New York Times’ Executive Editor, who has long investigated Clinton – and certainly is no fan of hers – came to the same conclusion. Kevin Drum shares this and more in Mother Jones. So...

Hillary’s Clean Sweep and the State of the Race

Hillary’s Clean Sweep and the State of the Race

Hillary made history again last Tuesday, taking the primary contests of Florida, Ohio and North Carolina by huge margins, and unexpectedly scoring narrow wins in Illinois and Missouri.  Instead of celebrating her clean sweep, beltway media by and large pretended it wasn’t happening, focusing on “how well” Bernie did, or — in the case of major pundits/reporters Joe Scarborough, Brit Hume, Glenn Thrush and Howard...

Hillary’s Nomination Fight Complicated by Media Expectations

Hillary’s Nomination Fight Complicated by Media Expectations

The New York Times editorial board, after penning a glowing endorsement of Hillary Clinton’s candidacy, now chastises her for going hard at her opponent Bernie Sanders at last Sunday’s debate.  If I have this correctly, Sanders can daily infer she is a corrupt oligarch – obfuscating her excellent record – and she must stand there while he does it, never attack him and make sure...

Hillary in the Lion’s Den

Watching Secretary Clinton field questions from FOX anchor Bret Baier at their Dem Town Hall last night, I couldn’t help but be knocked out by Hillary’s command of the issues, the specificity of her plans, her poise and grace under pressure. To say she is unflappable is an understatement. It really didn’t matter what Baier served up – grilling Clinton on Libya, abortion or emails,...

Elizabeth Warren, Traitor to the Cause?

Looking at Senator Elizabeth Warren’s Facebook page, you’d think she betrayed every one of her liberal values, since her account was overrun by hateful comments. Her crime: not endorsing Bernie Sanders. Some of his supporters seemed to blame her for his loss in the Massachusetts primary on Super Tuesday. Without discussing the merits of either Hillary or Bernie, counting on endorsements to pull a candidate...

Hillary Clinton Faces Social Media Sexism Which Cannot Be Minimized

The Washington Post presented a 6-chart study documenting how much sexist verbiage Hillary Clinton receives on social media, and how many of these slurs can be blamed on “Bernie supporters” versus “Right Wingers.” While this study offers useful information, it cannot capture the long term effects of what Clinton and her supporters endure by way of sexist attacks, and owing to the anonymous nature of...
