In 1948, Eleanor Roosevelt took examples of the dregs of history and aimed for a better ever after. She shepherded the creation and ratification of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. As the legal foundation of the international human rights movement, the document clearly needs help.
Here's a funny thing about politics: people assume that "right-wing conservative" translates to gun-toting, anti-abortion, intolerant, bigoted, sexist homophobe
With two deeply divided parties, the next president has a crucial influence on the future of the Supreme Court that is rarely discussed as we get closer to the 2016 election.
Hillary Clinton has confirmed, to a paying audience of 20,000 sellers of electronic health records systems, that she supports Obamacare, and opposes s...
Is Hillary Clinton inevitable? Should she even want to be seen that way? Be careful what you wish for.
Time may be on Willey's side. It's difficult, after all, to remember details of a controversy that happened over 20 years ago. Is Willey truly a credible commentator on Hillary Clinton's potential presidency?
Springtime is coming, baseball teams have reassembled for training, Robert Redford is back on cable playing Roy Hobbs in The Natural and Bill Clinton has begun his ride to rescue Democrats in the 2014 midterm elections.

If Hillary Clinton decides not to run, a strong progressive candidate could emerge for 2016, although doomsayers point to the failed candidacies of liberals George McGovern in 1972 and Walter Mondale in 1984. One hope for Democrats is that, like the old joke about the two curmudgeonly brothers, the other one is worse.
Private industry will permit the Obamacare system to thrive -- and soon.
In a web exclusive interview, political scientist Adolph Reed Jr. talks with me about his new article in the March issue of Harper's Magazine -- a challenge to America's progressives provocatively titled, "Nothing Left: The Long, Slow Surrender of American Liberals."
Saying that there's only one candidate allowed and we'll tell you later what her positions are is not what democracy looks like.
