Attacks must hurt Hillary personally when her record in public life has never been shown to be anything but honest. She has made a career of speaking out for those who can't speak out for themselves and fighting for equality and the civil and human rights of those who have been oppressed.

Her unconventional announcement video indicates that this time will be different. But with about 18 months to go before the 2016 elections, a loaded field of Republican candidates attacking her, and record amounts of campaign money being spent, this campaign will no doubt be most unconventional. And it is only just getting started!

Why Hillary Is Not Imploding

None of this stuff -- irritating as each item may be with regard to how the Clintons do things -- is actually important enough to threaten her candidacy. There is nothing, so far at least, that makes for a compelling, specific storyline.

Hillary Clinton has been a focus of the media for nearly five decades since that first speech in 1969. She has spoken out about her successes and failures; her life's goals and her vision for a better future for all to crowds large and small from Beijing to Appalachia.

Somehow all the sturm and drang created by each new "accusation and bombshell" her opponents dream up, and the press jumps to report, ends the same; Hillary is never shown to have done anything wrong. She comes out of these made for TV crisis looking like what she is; a brilliant woman and good politician who gets things done.

The New Georgia Project, the NAACP and other organizations began this election year with a simple goal: expand the voices of our democracy by reaching out to those who too often go unheard.

Perhaps when the next election rolls around Secretary Hargett will hand out temporary tattoos, the kind little kids like. That way, even voters' children could become his own walking billboards. Given what I've seen this year, I wouldn't be surprised.

What I Learned During My Fascinating Evening With Madeleine Albright

Cathy Chester

From time to time we have pre-conceived notions about people. As much as we try not to, we do. Last week while I was on my way to hear Madeleine Albright speak, I feared that her presentation might be dull and boring.

To hear the State Department tell it, the fact that our Secretary of State was forced to go through a metal detector before being allowed to meet with Egypt's president does not matter very much. But with all due respect, it does matter.

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.
