Things like energy and persistence are important, but look at it this way: Would you rather have an energized horse pulling an empty cart or a cart filled with ideas?
I love the McCain campaign's way of confronting reality -- ignore it and make up whatever seems most expeditious, truth be damned. It avoids having to deal with pesky little annoyances like facts.
The meltdown on Wall Street last week wasn't the only one. We got a glimpse of McCain under fire, and it wasn't pretty. America needs a president who provides a steady hand under pressure.
On The View, McCain fed into the argument that conservative "originalists" overvalue the 1789 text and undervalue the Amendments.
This election is about John McCain. And the Obama campaign should reflect that by only talking about this.
This week's campaign sleazefest brought to mind G. K. Chesterton's remark: "If there is one thing worse than the modern weakening of major morals, it is the modern strengthening of minor morals." So the media burns up hours of airtime arguing about "lipstick on a pig," while spending little or no time discussing suicide bombings in Iraq killing and wounding hundreds, the unemployment rate surpassing six percent for the first time in five years, another Wall Street institution teetering on collapse, the lack of political progress in Iraq reflected in the imminent postponement of the planned provincial elections, the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff declaring we're "running out of time" to get the war in Afghanistan right, etc, etc, etc. In this topsy-turvy media world, it's only fitting that the week's hardest-hitting political interview was conducted by the ladies on The View.
Last week a mix of water and sanitation experts gathered for World Water Week in Stockholm, Sweden to mull over the world's biggest public health crisis. The problem is that not enough people paid attention.
Looking at core limiting beliefs -- which hold you hostage -- embracing your "now" by accepting your past and living a "dream big" life without judging yourself are the keys to reinventing your life.
My jing is out of bling. And no amount of Doritos and NoDoz can revive it . I thought I'd unblocked the energies of the divine when a fen shui consul...
If Michelle truly wants to renegotiate her relationship with the American voter, the changes are going to have to come from within.
Is anyone else as appalled as I am at how quickly we have gone back to thinking of women in the oldest of stereotypes -- as only wives and mothers?
I have a piece of advice for Obama -- stop worrying about whether Michelle is softer or gentler. Don't play into the smear agenda. Let Michelle be herself and turn the GOP's strategy against itself.
The accomplished Barbara Walters is not that different from the beleaguered little girl: a victim and a beneficiary of the glitz and glamour of showbiz.
No candidate, but especially a woman, can afford to look homely or ordinary or even tired. If Clinton dared it, that would be the topic of conversation among, not only the media, but the voters as well.
She supported Bill...and now he's supporting her. That's what family does. Trust me, you don't want to know what my mother said about you-know-who when I left The View.
