Democratic Debate Shows Rare Glimpse of Rumored Political Unicorn

The Tuesday night Democratic debate was nothing short of a political miracle. Five authentic presidential candidates took to the stage and wowed nearly 15 million viewers with their intelligence and honest solutions for the country. This level of fact-based, respectful political dialogue hasn’t been seen since…well…maybe 2008? I assume Republican pundits missed the debate due […]

Republicans Admit to Abusing Congressional Power to Derail Clinton’s Presidential Campaign

The Special Committee on Benghazi, tasked with investigating the 2012 attacks in Benghazi, Libya, accidentally had a vital secret exposed by the politically ambitious Republican, Kevin McCarthy.

You Should Run

Last night I was reminded of an issue I’ve written about here a few times.  At WIN’s Women Opening Doors for Women event the keynote speech, given by Sam Bennett, president of the Women’s Campaign Fund focused on women candidates.  She not only asked that we all ask women we know to run, and nominate […]

The Value of Equal Pay Day for Men

Every time I bring up Equal Pay Day (or Unequal Pay Day as I prefer to think of it), some idiot (usually an unenlightened man) lectures me about women’s choices.  Women choose careers that allow them to be with their kids more, so of course they get paid less overall, as a group. Now, let’s […]

Politics 2.0 and Women Candidates

If the 2008 election showed women one thing, it’s "yes we can." Hillary Clinton’s dynamic run for the presidency has forever opened doors for women seeking higher office.
