Predictably, some pundits are drawing comparisons between President Obama's professed lack of knowledge of several major scandals -- IRS investigating...
Tuesday night's election results were a lot to take in -- especially if you're one of the Beltway creatures still clinging to low expectations for the political participation of Millennials. Spoiler alert: Young voter turnout in Virginia went up, a lot.
On Tuesday, Bill de Blasio was chosen the new mayor of New York City. But following months of campaigning, the real work of city governance began on Wednesday during the eight-week mayoral transition.
In the spirit of it never being too early to speculate about 2016, did Bill de Blasio's big win in the NYC mayoral race just position him to be the next Democratic vice presidential nominee?
On Tuesday, Terry McAuliffe was elected governor of Virginia. Following the lengthy campaign, the real work of the job begins Wednesday during the ten-week gubernatorial transition.
Without the votes of women, Virginia would have elected a Governor who opposes safe and legal abortion, wants to restrict access to affordable health care for women, supports extreme and dangerous fetal personhood measures and calls the birth control health care benefit a "sterilization mandate."
What does it really take to be mayor of New York City or president of the United States? Are we measuring the candidates based on those criteria or something else entirely? If the answer is the latter, we are destined to keep getting officials who are very good at campaigning, but perhaps not as skilled at governing.
Can Hillary Clinton run for president as the Great Uniter -- someone who can overcome the country's crippling partisan gridlock? A message of conciliation and compromise may be just what voters are looking for in 2016.
For every Sheryl Sandberg advocating women to Lean In, for every Marissa Meyer, the CEO of Yahoo, who's proving that women can have it all, billions of women around the world are not just marginalized but brutally victimized.
So are you smart and up-to-date?! Do you know the answers to these questions? Who's in the World Series? How many members of Congress are there? Who is Kim Kardashian engaged to?
If we progressives don't organize now an operation to bring Elizabeth Warren, Sherrod Brown, Bernie Sanders, and Alan Grayson, together into a private...
For more than 200 years, nobody believed it was odd to suggest two men for president and vice president. Isn't it about time someone (in this case, your faithful columnist) raise the prospect of two women? I can think of one great reason why: They would be the best leaders.
The Benghazi Hoax is the product of hyper-partisan zeal on Capitol Hill -- familiar enough -- mixed with a new and virulent strain of Tea Party-tinged Benghazi Trutherism in the conservative grassroots. "Benghazi, you let them die," a heckler shouted at Clinton during a speech this week.
Like Ronald Reagan, Hillary Clinton has a good sense of what her subordinates are capable of accomplishing when she gives clear direction and adequate space and time in which to accomplish it. That quality of discernment, in itself, is one of the reasons why the nation is already ready for Hillary 2016.
Would the relationship be similar to if Hillary Clinton were to become the next President of the United States in 2016 and Bill were to become First Man? Or would it simply be Mr. Zelaya pulling all the strings and telling his wife what to do and what to say and how to say it?
