At the Democratic Primary debate in Wisconsin, there was not one single science question. Although there were a few vague references to the environment, neither of the candidates revealed any aspect of their science policy agendas. Think about that.

In 2008, while I wanted to stand with Hillary, I could not. I felt that she was running her campaign "like a man," and therefore I felt betrayed, unhopeful and uninspired by her.
This is my message and prayer for Hillary Clinton tonight at the Democratic Debate: Hillary, please talk tonight about your record on women's rights and tell us more about how, when you are president, you will stand for women.
Thanks to MSNBC and the recent Democratic candidate debate in Manchester, N.H. I've seen enough. At one point during it, Bernie Sanders said, asking for some slack on a question, "This is the first time I've run for president." God bless him.
Ted Cruz wants American voters to give Hillary Clinton "a spanking." What will he want to do to non-compliant Congresswomen or the millions of female citizens who disagree with his policies? Spank us all?!
Regardless of what you think of Hillary's voting record, regardless of what you think about her take on the issues, it is undeniable that in this election, as in 2008, public perceptions of her political persona will undeniably be tainted by the media's role in the perpetuation of double standards and blatant sexism.
We need a debate that enables the Democratic electorate to judge these two candidates not on how able they are to fight the other, but on how well they can fight to take power away from the obstructionist Republicans.
Here are some random but real hints: now that's using social lamestream media; the Alibaba effect has worn off; she got Mitt's help to be in the next debate; and they're trying to heal a 1,000-year-old rift.
Last night's Democratic presidential primary debate in New Hampshire included the first question on campaign finance policy so far in the 2016 race.
For the first half hour of the opening two-way debate between Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders, both candidates appeared tired. Endless months on the campaign trail seemed to have taken their toll, which is not surprising when you consider that neither leading player exactly qualifies as an ingénue. But thirty minutes in, Clinton sprang into action, forcefully striking back at Sanders for criticizing her acceptance of corporate campaign donations. "Enough is enough," she declared from her perch just inches away. "If you've got something to say, say it directly." Watching her go mano-a-mano with Sanders proved again what we observed eight years ago in her two-way debates with Barack Obama: even when her flaws rise to the surface, Clinton remains a formidable debater who is not afraid to take a swing.
Bernie Sanders' campaign has already accomplished what most observers thought was impossible. This campaign is a rare, perhaps unprecedented event in this country's modern electoral history. It deserves the support of everyone who favors social and economic justice.
To call health care for all and free college education idealism is to deny realistic possibilities in the service of an ideology that idealizes greed and eschews compassion and courage. It's defeatism and a betrayal of the American way.
Whether you made a pact early in your relationship to agree to disagree or your party loyalties have changed over time, it's important to navigate the choppy political waters of getting along.
It would look a little something like this.
Here's a bold declaration: Despite the rancor accompanying this year's races and last year's congressional session, there is only one issue worth voting on. It's a deceptively simple issue too; massively important, but, oddly, still one a vast majority of Americans agree on.
