The GOP isn't banking solely on shoveling out dirt on Hillary to render her candidacy stillborn. They also bank that the supposed baggage that Hillary carries renders her an astonishingly divisive candidate.
Making a promise to stay faithful to one person and then breaking it is less about sex and more about lying. Affairs are a dilemma of integrity. If we are at heart a moral person, as most of us like to think of ourselves, how do we preserve our integrity in the face of our desire for variety?
Because of my recent trip to Africa, I now understand how the Clinton family continues to serve. I had the privilege to travel to five initiatives of the Clinton Foundation in Africa. On the trip, I saw first-hand the quiet appreciation on the faces of President and Chelsea Clinton when they observed the real-life results of their work.
He's the toast of the talk show scene: Guests from Clooney to Joaquin; From Regis to Drew And Jack Hanna's zoo; Dave's better than shots of caffeine!
Some leading Democrats seem to have a love-hate relationship with the left. Sure, progressives seem to have more influence than ever this year, at least rhetorically. But it doesn't look like the friction will be going away any time soon. Clearly, the left matters. Why, then, is it so difficult for progressives to get a seat at the table?
We all have opinions, biases, inclinations and a personal history that makes us who we are. But we also have free will, intelligence, and the good ol' common sense God gave us to practice good judgment and when necessary, impartiality.
If Brian Williams gets a six-month sentence for misrepresenting his reporting role over and over, George Stephanopoulos deserves nothing less for masquerading as an objective journalist asking ostensibly tough questions.
Jeb and TPP had second chances this week -- will they work? And what explains Stephanopoulos's gift to the Clinton Foundation? Rich Lowry and David Corn of National Review and Mother Jones debate these three "oops's". Then: who's "stupid" -- Dems for linking Amtrak funding and the Philly derailing or Boehner for de-linking them?
Jeb's and Hillary's Baggage
Are American voters now being given the option of choosing a virtual third term for George W. Bush? Astonishingly enough, that seems to be the direction his brother's campaign has chosen to head towards.
NOW chapters around the country and leagues of women voters are lit up over the possibility of a woman president. And many of them are hankering for Hillary.
The Clinton Foundation claims that it's committed to transparency - but clearly, it's not.
To have a realistic chance that enacting campaign finance reform will be a top priority in a Clinton Administration, her commitment to achieving this result must be seriously tested during the presidential campaign.
The truth is that, intriguing as Scotland always is, it was in Iraq -- and in the reaction to Iraq -- where Labour got off the winning course.
The Republican candidates' unwillingness to repudiate those promoting conspiracy theories about martial law and Jade Helm 15 makes clear that the extremist wing of their party is far, far more powerful than the nonexistent Sister Souljah wing of the Democratic Party ever was. Even the more serious candidates like Rubio, Walker, and Bush were afraid to denounce them.
But they've never done anything "knowingly inappropriate." How reassuring...
