Albright shouldn't have used the quote in the context she did during her campaign stop, but I feel the quote itself is being needlessly attacked. You see, I find it hard to separate my college from that quote.

Peter D. Rosenstein

So why does it make so much sense to vote for Hillary? The simple answer is despite all the attacks; the tens of millions of dollars and thousands of lines of print attacking her over many years; Hillary Rodham Clinton is still standing tall and the leading Democrat in 49 out of 50 states.

Biden Speculation

Chris Weigant

Joe Biden certainly has got the media talking. All it really took was one leak to Maureen Dowd and a meeting with Senator Elizabeth Warren, and he's now seriously considering it. But a Biden candidacy bears political examination beyond the simple question of "Will he or won't he run?"

Ahmad Khan

The Nightly Show clearly knows its voice and if one thing is for sure, it's that the show is in the infancy of what will be a great run.
