At the end of the day, most of us vote from our gut. We are skeptical, prone to seduction or aversion, sometimes fickle, sometimes loyal. We know, if not with our head, then with our heart, a leader when we see one, or hear one.
The thing is, the average voter -- the one who's going to trudge through a half-foot of snow on Tuesday and decide the New Hampshire primary -- doesn't care all that much about North Korea and its missile launches. What he or she really cares about is a system that is rigged against them.
One little-known fact this year is that Hillary Clinton and Marco Rubio have benefited from prison lobbyist money. In fact, they've taken almost the same amount of contributions from major prison lobbyists. Clinton's campaign has received $133,246 while Rubio's campaign accepted $133,450 from the prison lobby.
Whether I support Bernie Sanders or Hillary Clinton is ultimately unimportant; what is important is my right and ability to choose in the first place. Of all people, Steinem and Albright should have understood this.

Secretary Hillary Clinton has accepted millions in "speaking fees" and campaign contributions from interest groups - most notably Wall Street firms - that she will be in a position to help or hurt as president. She promises that the money will not influence her if she takes office, but voters are understandably skeptical.
It is time once again to peer deeply into my somewhat-foggy crystal ball, and attempt to pick the winners of tomorrow night's New Hampshire primary. Before I get to that, though, some old business needs to be brought up. First, we have some very recent old business and then some truly ancient business, so bear with me.
For us liberal young women who don't support Hillary Clinton, it's not because we're uninformed or "bad" feminists. As millennials, we have a breadth of information at our fingertips, and we know how to use it.
Thanks to MSNBC and the recent Democratic candidate debate in Manchester, N.H. I've seen enough. At one point during it, Bernie Sanders said, asking for some slack on a question, "This is the first time I've run for president." God bless him.
Today Hillary Clinton is a Stepford Wife for Wall Street with the great influence of Super Pacs. She is acting like a robot for special interests and cannot be trusted to be our President.
what's all the shouting about? shouldn't we all take it down a notch. yes, the dialogue between the clinton and sanders camps has gotten tense lately. it's enough to make you want to write in hushed, lower case letters. skipping the caps. skipping the italics. walking on eggshell around the word "shout."
Clinton still has a gap to traverse to lock in votes this primary season. She's already made significant changes to her campaign to change course and not repeat 2008. But schooling young women on what it means to be a feminist isn't going to win any votes.
Although my work for the last 20 years has been bridging the gap between Left and Right, I recognize the incredible power of this quick turn-on. Whether I am attending a political event in person or engaging via the media, I feel the high just like everyone else. But frankly, the buzz is wearing off.
Dear Bill, As a fellow Democrat, I have found much to admire in you over the course of many years. At the same time, your behavior has at times caus...
Remember when "liberal" was a dirty word? Democrats used to run from it faster than Marco Rubio runs from his support for a path to citizenship for undocumented immigrants.
One of the observations currently being made about the 2016 presidential elections involves the ineffectiveness of money as a campaign resource. Anecdotally, there appears to be good reason for such skepticism.
