As in all matters of war and peace, the buck stops at the president's desk: it wasn't Hillary, but Barack Obama who ultimately gave the orders.

While Hillary will be constantly defending herself against perpetual scandals and threading a centrist high wire, Webb will focus exclusively on communicating his bold ideas on economic growth, national security, and other major issues important to Americans nationwide.
A woman president will only make a difference if that woman, while in office, stands for the rights and equal representation of women and girls, without apology, without dilution, and without her actions contradicting her words.
If Warren is looking for a podium from which to preach her anti-Wall Street reform philosophy, here's a question: Which will get her more attention -- the U.S. Senate, where she's one of 100, or the Vice-Presidency of the United States?
However, while Objectivism can be a powerful, classically American, pull-yourself-up-by-your-boot-straps personal philosophy, it could have serious implications if adopted as a guide for broad-based policy implementation.

With the Democratic primary unlikely to be competitive, attention will soon turn to Hillary Clinton's choice of a running mate.
