Clinton Under Fire

Hillary Clinton’s campaign team is battening down the hatches in preparation for Tuesday night’s Democratic debate in Philadelphia and launching a pre-emptive strike to offset a potential pile-on from certain other presidential hopefuls who’ve been zinging her of late.  Meanwhile, Republican candidate Mitt Romney has also joined the fray.

Giuliani Lowers the Discourse

Historians may one day debate Rudy Giuliani’s recent preposterous comments at a New Hampshire town hall meeting. “Did he mean it?” they might ask. “Or was he just dehydrated?” While addressing voters, the candidate said that Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama were debating whether to invite Mahmoud Ahmadinejad and Osama bin Laden to their inaugurations.

Questioning Adoption-Abortion Link

One of the right wing’s most frequently invoked alternatives to abortion is adoption—but, as an Op-Ed piece in the Los Angeles Times points out, the relationship between the two choices is not at all as direct or demonstrable as some politicians, such as Rudy Giuliani, have made it seem.

Is Argentina Ready for a Woman President?
