It's the 160th anniversary year of Seneca Falls and we have two good reasons for associating that historic event with Dems -- Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama.
There are stories of hope and progress, and of delay and betrayal in New Orleans. None of them worthy of a mention as candidates left and right outlined their visions for the future last night.
The results from New Hampshire represent a crushing setback for pollsters, who will now have to down a heaping helping of humble pie.
