Is a Female President Only a Pipe Dream?

Are political observers and journalists at last advanced enough to recognize when certain actions are being disparaged simply because a woman is taking them? Or do we remain suckers in a land of sophists, buying into innuendo, believing whatever's implied -- even if it has nothing whatsoever to do with the truth?

A Clinton-Bush election would be competitive, but would end in a victory for the political establishment. Whoever won that election would be well-prepared to govern and extremely familiar with Washington, the presidency and partisan politics, but bereft of any innovative approaches or comprehensive critiques of the political system.

What Chris Christie Should Have Said to Save His Career

Richard Greene | Posted 04.07.2014 | Politics
Richard Greene

What is most devastating to Chris Christie is that his press conference and his denials completely destroy his unique brand because they directly contradict it. I believe that this kind of a mea culpa statement would have saved that very powerful brand that had everyone thinking of him in 2016.
