In her speech claiming victory after the Iowa caucuses, Hillary Clinton proclaimed herself "a progressive who gets things done." I had to laugh. And it wasn't just because former President Bill Clinton -- the centrist Triangulator-in-Chief -- was standing behind her, beaming and clapping.

To meet the demands of a century defined by rapid change, it is my belief that ADL transform itself into a learning organization, one capable of continuous reinvention. In short, an organization that thrives on innovation.

Democratic presidential frontrunner Hillary Clinton recently proposed increased early screenings and more resources for treating autism.
Stacey Dash confuses me. For that matter, so does Ben Carson. They are both voices for the conservative political caucus, Dash on Fox and Carson as a presidential candidate. What I cannot grasp is their staunch advocacy on behalf of extreme conservatives given the history of that movement.
