Monica Botkier's keen eye for accessories has resonated with the designer since her upbringing in New York City. A true New Yorker at heart, Monica's ...
Republicans have only one goal: to turn this tragedy into a scandal. Their relentless campaign to use the events in Benghazi to score cheap political points ahead of the midterm elections is appalling.
Hillary Clinton's logic was good at the time, and she made the correct decision by not pronouncing Boko Haram as a terrorist group -- even in the face of the furor over the abducted schoolgirls.
Pepper Memo rocks Washington WASHINGTON -- Through the Freedom of Information Act, Republicans have uncovered a memo confirming decisively that Vince...
A lot of people say that Mother's Day is one of those "Hallmark holidays" that don't really exist in the calendar, and I can certainly see their point. The commercialization of Mother's Day doesn't enhance anyone's idea of family. But there's another way that society is "dumbing down" motherhood that we must name and shame.
Hillary vs. the media bit is a good narrative frame for her, no matter its accuracy. It's certainly accurate enough to have some credibility. And then there's the fact that the public doesn't think much of the news media. This week, in fact, we've seen how it can work for her.
Since when is defending more than half of the world's population from violence, poverty and disease a "soft" issue? Since when is helping women achieve personal bodily autonomy a "nice-to-have?"
The GOP's Benghazi disease has metastasized into yet another committee in the Republican House of Inquisitions, seeking to waste taxpayer money in yet another failed effort to exploit the death of Americans and prosecute yet another witch hunt against Hillary Clinton.
Her real political advantage will be her ability to lead a national conversation about issues. It's not just that these are important matters. It's that a willingness to talk about them will contrast nicely to the tone and substance of a Republican dynamic full of manufactured crises and rhetoric that will scare off everyone to the left of the Koch brothers.
Monica Lewinsky reemerged in the media this week and my heart breaks for her over the hell and trauma that a girl of 21 had to endure. And that she must be reliving today.
Why do women who are married and/or married with children impose their idea of success on women who are not married? Every woman is not looking for someone to put a ring on it!
Mitt Romney was surrounded by grandkids during his presidential run and no one ever ventured the question, let alone the thought, that he might not be a good grandfather or was not involved enough in their lives. But 66, for a woman in the political arena (and other arenas as well), is a different story. Unlike a man, a woman's "shelf-life" seems to be limited when she is described, even in her 60s, as a grandmother.
Already the GOP has bet heavily that its obsession with Obamacare will bolster its political position -- a bet that increasingly looks like a loser. Now, in its never-ending attempts to mollify the tea party fringe, the GOP leadership has turned down another political blind alley.
What title could Hillary Clinton add to her resume that would make her even more appealing to voters than those she already has on her resume? That question was answered recently when Chelsea announced that she and husband Marc Mezvinsky were expecting. In the eyes of much of the world, grandmothers can do no wrong.
A Clinton-Bush election would be competitive, but would end in a victory for the political establishment. Whoever won that election would be well-prepared to govern and extremely familiar with Washington, the presidency and partisan politics, but bereft of any innovative approaches or comprehensive critiques of the political system.
Warren knows from experience and writes with warmth that every day in America there are boys and girls asking moms and dads why the family car is gone, why the family home was taken away, why Mom or Dad has lost a job, and why so Americans live from paycheck to paycheck, desperately struggling to make ends meet.
