Why Hillary Clinton’s Marriage Doesn’t Matter for 2016

A few days back, I read a ridiculous post on Politico about Tina Brown’s advice to Hillary Clinton, telling Hillary basically to not bother with the “negativity” of a presidential campaign, and that she should just rest on Bill’s laurels and enjoy her new grandchild. That’s pretty much what I said in my comment: I did not expect the type of replies I ended up getting… Victim? How does anything about...

Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand: Women Must Make Their Voices Heard and Vote!

President Obama: If We GOTV for You, Will You Sing “Let’s Stay Together” by Al Green on Inauguration Day, January 2013?

Well, who knew our president could carry a tune? At a New York City fundraiser, President Obama sang out the first few words of Al Green’s “Let’s Stay Together” as a sort of personal homage to the singer, who had just performed at the event. The reaction has been swoony and enthusiastic, with mentions and American Idol-esque critiques around the web (over 738 related articles as of this posting a mere 24 hours...
