After watching Hillary Clinton debate Bernie Sanders one more time, we must sooner or later ask ourselves, what is actually going on in this woman's head? At a strictly intellectual level, she is polished and knowledgeable, highly skilled in the art of articulating policy positions. The transcript of her remarks must be impressive.

Hillary, the Banksters Committed 'Fraud,' Not 'Shenanigans'

The banksters made millions of deliberately fraudulent, not "reckless" loans and they most assuredly "created the foreclosure crisis." Hillary went on to throw the victims of these frauds under the bus.

Bern the Witch-Hunters

In the absence of name-calling, smear campaigns, misogyny and conspiracy theorizing by Bernie, his supporters have compensated by doing it all themselves. The Sanders campaign has no need for attack ads, their supporters write infinitely more toxic slurs and accusations in countless blogs.

How Trump Lost Iowa

James Marshall Crotty

Going forward, I do not see how Trump undoes the damage he inflicted on himself in Iowa. Not only has he unilaterally destroyed his narrative that he is a "winner," but he has now given the rapidly rising, if boyish, Rubio a clear path to victory.

On the eve of the Iowa caucuses, the editors of the NY Times have declared their endorsement of Hillary Clinton for President. The endorsement is fundamentally disingenuous, for two reasons.

Democratic Primaries 2016: The Sexism Is Now Officially appalling.

The sexism is now officially appalling. A self-appointed Boy leader of millennials asks the most admired woman in the world why she doesn't make him more excited. No one talks about the arrogance of the question or the questioner.

Hillary Sputters, Sanders Rocks

Hillary Clinton went full throttle in her debate with Bernie Sanders last night. She tried her very best to emulate the passion and authenticity of her opponent. But therein lies the rub. Hillary tried to be authentic.

Republican Women May Lead Hillary to the White House

Judith Barnett | Posted 01.07.2016 | Politics

The thinking is that Trump's current coalition in the primaries relies heavily on male voters -- especially less-educated men. The female vote is less important in Republican primaries. Republican and independent women may have had enough and could be key to Hillary winning the White House.

A New Years Musing: Aquasize for the Candidates

It's been some years already that my friend Craig and I have been collaborating, at least in fantasy, in various ideas as to how Aquasize -- exercise in the water -- might be used as a variant of tranquilizer and cooperation agent, in meetings of great importance which often are burdened with conflict bordering on hatred.

David Brock: Hillary's the One

In the Commonwealth Club audience were more than a few who had earlier chanted "Run, Bernie run!" when another candidate dropped by, but Brock got a rousing applause. The left, it seems, is substantially more considerate than the right.

Support your candidate. Sing his praises to the sky. But remember that the primary is not the whole game. In fact, remember that this is not a game. That this is not about your guy winning. This is about making our country -- all of it, in a lot of different arenas -- a better place.

Facebook Elections, Facebook Candidates, Facebook Democracy

When it comes to electing a President or Prime Minister, "likes" are as relevant as they are when picking a trial lawyer, dentist, surgeon or architect. Consider whether Winston Churchill would have gotten any "likes"? Or how many "friends" he would have racked up?

In campaign 2016, some things have changed, many have not. Hillary has served as a U.S. Senator and the U.S. Secretary of State, helping thousands, maybe millions, of people to create, reconstruct, and resurrect their lives. And yet people keep asking, who is this woman?

Taking Jeb Bush's comments out of context was a bad move by the Democratic Party. Liberals like Hillary Clinton should not have to lower themselves to using deceptive soundbites like Fox News.

Hillary and Undocumented Immigrants

Ryan Campbell | Posted 05.13.2015 | Latino Voices
Ryan Campbell

While there was much said, and most of it was the safe sort of "hard-working immigrant" rhetoric that is essentially "political fluff," considering where we are in the very long 2016 race, she did say a lot of things that turn into political liabilities if not acted upon.
