Somalia's previous government was predatory and non-democratic. An oppressive government is not necessarily better than when no government exists at all. Why should we expect this new government to be any different?
Is there really any question about whether Hillary Clinton would be a kick-ass first woman president? My guess is that she'd get more done than her hu...
Some of us haven't gotten past what's been ingrained in us societally -- that if a man cries, it's an honest show of emotion. If a woman even chokes up, she is a weak little girl who can't be trusted in a position of power.
Under the leadership of Secretary Clinton, the State Department created a suite of public/private initiatives that brought together visionaries from the two sectors in groundbreaking programs that should become an essential part of on-going American foreign policy.
The terrorist attack on the consulate was abhorrent. But a broader discussion about the NATO-led regime change in Libya -- and its unfolding political aftermath in Mali -- would be a better use of Congress' time.
Even those who don't believe that Clinton was trying to avoid testifying to Congress might still suggest that she's been playing a cagey game.
My eyes are going to be on Hillary Clinton. Clinton will be stepping down as secretary of state -- and striking a blow to the pantsuit industry. Her pantsuits have become fashion history.

Why did President Barack Obama choose a big battle with Republicans over Chuck Hagel rather than Susan Rice? Obama himself, of course, has not said. He never said that UN Ambassador Rice was his first choice for secretary of state.
My Little Publishing Company plans to single-handedly bring back the prestige of literary prizes.
Eliot Spitzer & Torie Clarke debate the Cliff deal and guns after Newtown. Should blame fall on Washington or on voters who want to spend 24 percent of GDP while only paying 16 percent in taxes and since many also "cling" to a two century near-religious belief in their muskets?
There's a distinct downside to choosing Chuck Hagel as secretary of defense: for the first time in decades, there will be no woman serving in any of the top four national security slots.
Art... has represented the United States in its embassies and consulates around the world by putting our "best foot forward" in the spirit of creativity and cooperation among nations and showcasing some of America's most respected contemporary artists.
