The New York Times Endorses Hillary Clinton for the Democratic Nomination

In its enthusiastic endorsement of Hillary Clinton for the Democratic nomination, The New York Times’ editorial board stated “voters have the chance to choose one of the most broadly and deeply qualified presidential candidates in modern history.” Their assessment is both forthright and thoughtful, leading many to wonder how their political desk could be consistently trashy to Secretary Clinton, pursuing stories of questionable origin in...

Let’s Talk About the Good that Hillary Has Done In the World

Let’s talk about the good that Hillary Clinton has done in the world, from her years as a Yale grad passing up tony law firms to do groundbreaking work for the Children’s Defense Fund through her successful tenure as Secretary of State. Hillary’s a progressive who gets results, and she demonstrated this most recently by dispatching two senior aides to Flint, Michigan to offer assistance...

Clinton On Message, Sanders Under Pressure

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

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

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...
