I have said that the central issue for the 2016 presidential contest is the restoration and protection of voting rights. It is therefore fitting that Hillary Rodham Clinton, the leading contender for the Democratic Party's nomination for president in 2016, made voting rights the centerpiece of a speech at a major campaign stop in Houston today.
Hillary Rodham Clinton is the overwhelming front-runner to be her party's standard-bearer in the 2016 presidential election, and the Republicans know it. Even though she has not announced her intentions, Republicans are taking political shots at her. But their personal attacks are shrill and feeble, and reveal a party without a vision for the country.
