President Obama had some fun this week, and by doing so actually forced the media to tackle a serious subject on his agenda. The fun part was taking ...
I was working at a law firm in New York City, achieving professional success but feeling that something was missing. What was I contributing? Was I reaching my full potential?
Here's a Labor Day Week to Week news quiz for you to see how much you know about what's happening near and afar. Here are some random but real hints:...
Both Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders have legitimate shots at becoming the 45th president of the United States, unlike my ex Donna, who probably won't ever be president of anything, let alone the free world. Here's a comparison of the three.
The history of the 2016 presidential election is still being written and it's not too late for Congresswoman Wasserman Schultz to do the right thing and expand the debate format. If Republicans can have twelve debates, why must Democrats be mired in only six?
The release of another batch of Hillary Clinton emails, courtesy of the State Department, provides an opportunity to glimpse inside the formation of the Obama administration's approach to Iran in the early days of his presidency.
Barring the possibility that more serious breaches are turned up, these emails may do the work a thousand soft magazine profiles never could have: letting us in on the fact that after all these years, we do know Hillary Clinton.
Presented as containing some damning revelations, upon closer examination the emails simply produced more yawns. They contained nothing proving any kind of wrongdoing on the part of Clinton. (Unless Clinton aide Huma Abedin using emails to organize a small dinner for the former secretary of state now qualifies as wrongdoing.)
We need to remember how artists' work can make things easier to see, that together we must continue to make our country a more vibrant, transparent, clear-eyed, self-aware place.
Hillary Clinton blamed Donald Trump's rhetoric as the kind of speech that can "trigger someone who is less than stable." While she made these remarks after the Charleston shootings, they were before two Boston rednecks beat senseless an apparently homeless illegal immigrant.
What if we turned things around? What if Hillary Clinton simply spoke whatever came into her head without thinking? (Or did think how she could shock her way onto the news with slurs about one group or another?) What if we decided to probe into Donald Trump's emails and see what kind of ethical and moral breaches he had made over the years in his business dealings?
As O'Malley smells the coffee, he needs to make a deal. Not with the DNC, but with Bernie Sanders, and Lincoln Chafee, and Jim Webb, and Joe Biden; to rent out some space, issue some press credentials.
We asked millennials who besides Trump has been vocal on the issue? Who's been gaining the most traction with voters? And, who do millennials hope to hear from on this issue?
There has been a great deal of speculation about Joe Biden's intentions as the leaves begin to turn. Will he run for the White House a third time or will he ride out on a high note, perhaps to be the next Secretary of State should a Democrat win in 2016?
"Women's rights are human rights." This simple sentence declared by then-First Lady Hillary Clinton at the Fourth World Conference on Women in Beijing in 1995 resonated around the world. Millions of women heard this as a declaration that they mattered, that their daughters mattered.
As much as I have mocked the idea, and tweeted jokes about it, in a weird way that I am reluctant to admit (which is why this sentence is going on for so long) the idea of a Donald Trump presidency is starting to grow on me. Like fungus maybe, but growing nonetheless.
