Last night, New Hampshire shook up the presidential race and roiled what were already less-than-calm waters, in both the Democratic Party and the GOP. On the Democratic side, Hillary Clinton looks a lot weaker than she did a few weeks ago.
The big story out of Iowa and New Hampshire isn't that Trump came in first or second, it's that the overwhelming majority of GOP voters are rejecting him.
Rubio, Bush, and Kasich are not as loud, insulting, belittling, or bellicose as their leading rivals, but that does not make them moderate. It just makes them unsuccessful in the modern Republican Party.
When facing questions about the Internet, Fiorina, who has an extensive, albeit pot-holed history in Silicon Valley, routinely gets her answers wrong. And she's not alone. Across New Hampshire last weekend, candidates were blaming Net Neutrality protections for a hypochondriac's list of ailments.
Ted Cruz wants American voters to give Hillary Clinton "a spanking." What will he want to do to non-compliant Congresswomen or the millions of female citizens who disagree with his policies? Spank us all?!
Before the turn of the 21st century, during the so-called "second wave" of feminism, I actually drank the Kool-Aid. I thought women could, should ...
Democrats are down to a head-to-head contest, which was on full display last night. Both Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders made their respective cases fairly well, and the jostling between them for position was notable.

Presidential candidates speak often on issues of national security, terrorism and immigration. But there's one subject many of the candidates seem to avoid: women's rights. During the last six Republican primary debates, only six questions have been asked related to women, and only one directly about women's rights, according to transcripts of the debates.
Sifting through a presidential candidate's website is one of the more accessible ways to delve into the minds of those running to be the leader of the United States. But some of their websites don't dive very deep into how they plan to address the current issues facing society. Here, 20-year-old me will dig into how the top ten Republican candidates' websites confront the issues and provide them a letter grade based on their detail and variety.
Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump said Tuesday at the 10th annual Iowa Renewable Fuels conference that he supports the notion to maintain the standard, a declaration that must have boded well with many citizens of a state with 41 corn ethanol plants in attendance.
