2014-02-03-BothSidesNowLogoPlaincolhirescopy1.jpgThe 2016 race probably saw a inflection point this week when Hillary imitated Ginger Rogers dancing backwards in heels better than Astaire. Frum-Alter debate if there's any way she can be stopped, will Biden run, and who's on her short-list as VP (yeah, too soon).

Calling for shame and charity in order to get our country to pay attention to poverty or the lack of mobility is old, and wrong. For 50 years, the stories from the war on poverty have almost singularly tried to shame us into addressing these issues, but, ultimately, they harm the cause.

America's national housing policy seems, in a word, adrift: rudderless, following the whims of the prevailing political winds of the day, the ebb and flow of the ocean's tides, wherever they might take us.

When we hear that a mother is on maternity leave, most of us smile and realize it's a special time in that family's life. But often banks hear something else -- they hear something has led lenders to deny the home mortgage loans for expecting families.

Republicans are throwing everything they have up against the wall to see if it sticks trying to keep Hillary Rodham Clinton from running for president. Their problem is this woman who they are trying to paint as diminished in some way is clearly miles ahead in energy and brainpower from any of the people that want the 2016 Republican nomination.

10 Things You Need To Know About Julian Castro If You'd Like To Be Somewhat Informed | Jason Linkins | Posted 07.23.2014 | Politics

San Antonio Mayor Julian Castro has been nominated to be the next secretary of the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development. What's to be said about this? Well, over at the Washington Post, The Fix hooks you up with "The 10 things you need to know about Julian Castro." This must be a misprint, because the article goes on to relate 10 very inessential and/or inconsequential things about Castro. For example, did you know that he has a twin brother? Or that he does not speak Spanish? Here's a hot scoop: Castro could one day be the first Hispanic president of the United States, according to this one guy who said so once, unless of course someone else becomes the first Hispanic president of the United States. The whole "who will be the first Hispanic president of the United States" thing is really sort of up in the air at the moment.
