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.
It's important that we respect and honor the women who have come before us in this fight. I'm sure it can be frustrating for them to see younger women disagreeing with them about the path to change. But the respect needs to go both ways. Make the effort to listen to and lift up the work of young feminists
New Hampshire Democrats have shown the way. It remains to be seen if the rest of the Union will cease to listen to the rusted rails of mainstream media and usher in the revolution that Bernie Sanders has promised to lead.
The Hillary Clinton campaign is in panic mode; no more are they looking ahead to the general election, the focus is on Sanders approaching in the rear-view mirror. Clinton's policy positions and speech become more calibrated for the progressive primary voter.
It's 2016, and while England, Germany, Denmark, Chile, Argentina, India and even Pakistan have elected women heads of state, we still haven't even nominated a woman for our highest office. With Hillary Clinton, we have a female candidate who not only has a stronger resume than that of any of her rivals in either party, but who is firmly committed ensuring equal pay for women, and who has been uniquely outspoken on the impact that women have on the economy.
Who's on first? Yesterday while New Hampshire voters were going to the polls, Hillary Clinton's "chief strategist" Joel Benenson was interviewed...
Now that Bernie Sanders has won New Hampshire handily, perhaps we should ask whether Hillary's campaign may be repeating its self-destruction of eight...
If you consider yourself a feminist and are supporting Sanders during this primary season, please ask yourself honestly: Do I support his policies in and of themselves? Or am I swayed to his side because of a lifetime of covert sexist microaggressions that leave me disgusted with "the establishment?"
For the life of me, I can't fathom why anyone would consider voting for Hillary Clinton. Forget the baggage about the emails while she was Secretary of State. Here's a list of key issues that matter.
Today, during the Upfronts, ABC was totally up front about a new political television series that's about to hit the airwaves -- one which will provide conclusive proof that Donald Trump has totally trumped the GOP.
This past weekend's message of toughness and damnation are the wheezing gasps of a belief that feminine power is not as important as masculine power. Women under 50 live in a different world because of feminist trailblazers, one in which fighting, anger and repudiation of others doesn't resonate with them.
In a recent debate with Bernie Sanders, Hillary Clinton bragged about getting the approval of Henry Kissinger: "I was very flattered when Henry Kissinger said I ran the State Department better--better than anybody had run it in a long time," she said. Now it boggles the mind how a candidate claiming she is a progressive can even mention Kissinger as a source of pride.
Hillary Clinton is highly experienced, politically savvy, and brilliant. I have great respect for her and believe she could be an excellent president. But I'm still undecided, and I need to see more honesty and transparency from her regarding the issues I care about. That -- and no amount of bullying or shaming -- is what will determine my vote.
Hillary charged ahead with a concession speech that was basically a recycled stump speech. It looked like she was using tele-prompters. She offered the obligatory thanks to her supporters, to New Hampshire, and so on, but you could tell she just wanted to move on from her crushing defeat.
The case for Hillary Clinton is mostly a matter of rebutting the case against her. Once that's done, you're simply left with the most qualified candidate, and someone who is, by all reality-based measures, progressive. And just as important, someone who is capable of achieving results.
Why is it assumed that I must hand Hillary Clinton my vote if she beats Sanders in the primaries this spring? Why is it my "responsibility" to pick the lesser of two evils when I have better choices that align with my ideals?
