This is Wolf Blitzer in the Situation Room. And we have BREAKING NEWS. Three more Republican congressmen have said the Benghazi investigation is a sham created just to bring down Hillary Clinton. Live with reaction is Reince Priebus, chairman of the Republican National Committee.
Why would CNN be so quick to declare Hillary Clinton the winner of Tuesday's Democratic debate, when the majority of online polls crowned Bernie Sanders?
The fact is, part of the job of president is working and playing well with others be they conservative Democrats, country club Republicans, Tea Party wing nuts, progressives or global leaders like Vladimir Putin and Xi Jinping.
A self-proclaimed "avid reader" of my blogs recently sent me an email with the following request: "Can you write something 'positive' about Kenya?"
The concept that the federal "War On Weed" needs to end is now about as mainstream as it gets, and after the people have led so admirably on the issue in the past decade, the politicians are finally deciding it is safe to follow this trend.
Opposing the CIA's illegal war in Nicaragua was a mainstream, popular position at the time. It's only in the pro-war, pro-Empire bubble of big US media that having opposed the illegal CIA war on Nicaragua could be portrayed as an electoral liability without any evidence.

Sheryl Crow sang the National Anthem at CNN's October 13th Democratic presidential debate. It seems only appropriate to recap the event through her albums, songs, and lyrics
How revealing that the perpetrators of mass surveillance violating the Fourth Amendment -- from Cheney on down -- don't have to deal with the "traitor" question. That in CNN debates, in the mass media, this grand stigma -- traitor -- is reserved only for whistleblowers.
Here's my unscientific scoring on how everyone handled climate, with a combination of urgency, sense of scale of the challenge, and specifics on how to fight it.
