I happen to know something about Congo, Rwanda and Kivu, a province on the Eastern border of the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) that has become th...
During a week in which those icons of feminism -- senators McCain and Graham -- viciously attacked Susan Rice, Dowd somehow decided it was perspicacious to go after her, too. Dowd has always been a cheap-shot artist, but her initial attack on Rice last week was even below the bargain-bin variety.
Why would members of a political party repeatedly antagonize potential voters? One reason: in their hearts they really do not believe that members of these groups are, or have any right to be, included as active participants in the political conversation of this country.
So, President Obama, you need a new Secretary of State to replace Hillary Clinton, but you don't like any of the choices sitting on your desk? How's an idea that maybe you haven't thought of: How about Dick Lugar?
There are legitimate questions and concerns that should be raised about the deaths of the four Americans at Benghazi. But to use that terrible event to discredit the legion of ground-breaking, successful foreign policy accomplishments of the Obama Administration is beyond unconscionable.
The senator has dedicated his life to public service, which is to be commended. He is therefore committing an unforced error on his legacy, and it would be a shame for him to tip the scales further toward pathetic rather than powerful.
John McCain and the horde of GOP critics of Ambassador Rice owe a nationwide apology for their insults of an honorable representative of the United States.
Condi Rice stood out in a sea of White faces in the GOP, but she also gave flesh to Bush's successful drive to woo more minority voters. Obama is anxious to find new ways to legitimize himself to African Americans who wonder whether their steadfast support will be reciprocated.
U.N. Ambassador Susan Rice has been accused of intentionally misleading the American people on these programs. The facts prove otherwise.
Susan Rice -- whom Senators McCain and Graham have vowed to block if she is nominated to be Secretary of State and whom McCain condemned as "unqualified" for the position -- did her job and presented the intelligence community's assessment of what happened in Benghazi. What else should she have done?
We know that Republicans do not like to govern, but apparently they want to prevent anyone else from doing it too, especially a popular Democratic president.
Winning is a habit; so is losing. After the 2012 presidential election, one political party continues their downward spiral into the abyss.
If Susan Rice must be held to account, so must Condoleeza Rice. Leading America into a costly and deadly war that has no real signs of ending has been a detriment to our economy and families everywhere who've lost family members or had them return home in a condition far worse than when they left.
