Clinton On Message, Sanders Under Pressure

As a longtime Hillary supporter who came to that choice after much research, I’ve had occasion to marvel at Secretary Clinton’s grace under pressure. The best example being her recent 11-hour grilling at the hands of the Benghazi “investigative” committee led by Rep. Trey Gowdy. He and his Republican cohorts were spitting mad and well…just spitting rude accusations that more reasoned persons in Gowdy’s own...

Hillary, You May Not Go To The Bathroom and Other Double Standards

The criticisms leveled at Hillary Clinton are in an orbit beyond familiar disparities in male vs. female candidates’ coverage and treatment. Last week, four of Bernie Sander’s campaign staffers “improperly accessed the Hillary Clinton campaign’s proprietary voter database” and downloaded private Clinton voter data. Sanders apologized for the breach during last Saturday’s debate. Hillary accepted, even while his campaign distracted from their actions by claiming...

Hillary Clinton’s Must-Watch Speech on Keeping America Safe

In the wake of the terrorist attack in San Bernardino, Hillary Clinton’s comprehensive speech on counter-terrorism was a sober alternative to the bellicose posturing heard at tonight’s Republican debate. Listening to her remarks, it is impossible not to contrast her gravitas, knowledge and resolve with the ignorant braggadocio offered up by Trump, Cruz and other Republican presidential candidates. Fred Kaplan’s Slate article, America’s New Know-Nothings,...

Media Complicity in Donald Trump, Demagogue-in-Chief

Mainstream media helped create, feed, and cynically fed on, the creature that is Donald Trump, but have now decided he has gone too far with his latest xenophobic statement that there be a “total and complete shutdown of Muslims entering the United States.” Their complaints are as cynical as his candidacy. Leaving aside that his comment is a likely ISIS recruiting tool, Donald Trump is...

Republican Hate Mongering, Planned Parenthood and Hillary Clinton

Republican Hate Mongering, Planned Parenthood and Hillary Clinton

Most 2016 Republican presidential candidates daily bellow inflammatory rhetoric to stir the passions of their political base, no matter how many falsehoods are spread by such hate mongering. Consider this: Carly Fiorina’s lies about Planned Parenthood “selling baby parts” likely helped load the gun that Robert Lewis Dear used to murder three innocent people, including a police officer, and wound nine others, when he stormed...

What the Politics of Fear Cost Us

There are heated opinions on whether America should be welcoming Syrian refugees to our shores after the terrorist attacks in Paris and Beirut last week. Yet, much as we might dread the unknown, part of what it means to be an American is that we rise above the fearful rhetoric and xenophobia now taking hold with a vast number of Republican presidential candidates, and in...

If You Want to Call the Election, Trust Vegas

“While there is no shortage of people making predictions about who will become the next Commander in Chief, almost every source of information has its own reason for bias. The media tends to report on the more outrageous candidates even when they’re not performing well in the polls. Pundits focus on their favorites or those that they have ready access to.  Many polls have no...

No, We Are Not Done With Sexism

The tropes used to advanced sexist stereotypes may be more subtle now than they were the last time Hillary Clinton ran for President, but there is still a double standard when measuring a woman’s appearance, likability, authenticity and credibility.  And yes, it might be sexist when Senator Sander’s presidential campaign operative says he would consent to “interview” Hillary Clinton for a subservient position — especially...

Why Do “Brogressives” Fight Female Leadership?

Why Do “Brogressives” Fight Female Leadership?

Why do we still demand impossible metrics for women on likeability, “authenticity” and credibility while automatically conferring those qualities upon men? Senator Bernie Sanders got in some hot water last week owing to senior campaign operatives’ remarks about being “willing to consider” Hillary Clinton for Vice President and “consenting to interview her.” His adviser’s statements were as insecure as they were condescending, considering Clinton is...

Hillary’s Grit Under Pressure Wins New Supporters [Updated]

Hillary Clinton’s patience, fortitude and grace under the 11-hour gang grilling she received at the hands of Chief Investigator Trey Gowdy and his questionable Benghazi committee was nothing short of astonishing. Gowdy and his Republican brethren were as disrespectful to Clinton as they were clueless of statecraft. Considering they were rabid to once again have Secretary Clinton under the hot lights, they seemed ill prepared...
