When you consider what has been happening to the average working person since the era of Ronald Reagan, it's amazing that the Republicans have fought the Democrats about to a draw. The recipe of Reagan and both Bushes has been to weaken government, undermine the regulation of market excesses, attack core social insurance programs, tilt the tax system away from the wealthy and towards the middle class, gut the safeguards that protect workers on the job, make college ever more unaffordable, and appoint judges who undermine democracy itself. That stuff is not exactly popular. Yet Democrats seem largely unable to convert Republican elitism to their advantage.
Poor Hillary? I don't think so. I think she's perhaps a little surprised at which particular aspect of her life is now being attacked (if she had a cartoon thought bubble over her head right now, it might read: "This is all you got? Really?!?"), but I don't think she's surprised the attacks have started.
When the George W. Bush administration commenced its global sales pitch to invade Iraq in 2002, misplaced fear and overly rosy projections for its success helped make it happen. If only they had heeded the prescient warnings of these nine individuals.
It is time for us to closely examine WHY we don't support other women. Why are we scared to step out and speak up? What is the root of that fear? And why do we let that fear control us?

In a world of downward mobility for the majority, Democrats need to acknowledge the widening divide and propose specific ways to reverse it.
Insurgents this week are pushing for regime change... in the U.S.. Is ISSA our ISIS -- and Lois Lerner really Nixon? Lowry and Alter clash whether the IRS is a true scandal or not even a "smidgeon" of one.
Recent attacks from the right wing on the success of Bill and Hillary Clinton since leaving the White House are absurd. If Republicans are looking for someone who is out of touch and does not reflect middle-class values at heart, they only need to look in the mirror.
Harriette Rose Katz, Founder and President of Gourmet Advisory Services, has been one of the country's leading wedding and event planners for 36 years...
Together, the Bill, Hillary and Chelsea Clinton powerhouse trio have become Chief Commitment Officers -- dedicated to challenging their members to create a better tomorrow. The main difference of the Clinton model is that members cannot just talk about solutions. They have to create meaningful change.
Well that certainly didn't take long. Just two weeks after California's kids celebrated their victory vs. bad teachers, the kids vs. tenure lawsuits are hitting the road.
There is a growing concern in Democratic circles, which I share, about whether the Hillary Clinton who could run in 2016 is repeating the mistake she made in 2008, when she ran as the inevitable and invincible candidate of a political establishment held in widespread public disrepute.
Is Hillary ready to break with her predecessor, her husband, and with the Wall Street wing of the party? She may be able to be nominated and elected without addressing these issues.
Seven years later, Clinton is considering another run at the presidency. Once again, she is the dominant brand in the marketplace, the one to beat.
Michele Bachmann, retiring Minnesota Congresswoman, has introduced a bill that any Democrat who gets elected president should immediately be impeached...
Today, tens of thousands of Coloradans are garaging their car and hitting Colorado's bike trails to commute into work for Colorado's annual Bike to Work Day. One of the biggest upsides to biking, and other clean energy and conservation policies, is how empowering it is to the average person.
