Can Bernie Sanders Win Minority Hearts, and Votes?

The presidential candidate is little known among minorities. He will have to convince those communities that his focus on economic inequality is tightly tied to their interests, too.

Clinton Scores a Hit With Talk-Show Diplomacy

Hillary Clinton’s media savvy was on full display Saturday during an appearance on the Turkish equivalent of “The View.” Dishing on family and fashion, Clinton was by all accounts a hit in a country where only 9 percent view the U.S. favorably. Update: Video

The Man Who Won’t Change

Rush Limbaugh asks why women don’t like him. Well, I think I know why. Pull up a chair, my dears, and I’ll tell you, and him, a sad, sad story.

A Choice Between Peace and Peril

Bibi Netanyahu’s assumption of power in Israel sets the stage for a huge campaign by the Israeli government, and its well-oiled lobby groups in Washington, to push us into a war with Iran, but a stable relationship with Iran would do more to protect Israel and our interests in the Middle East.

Senate Confirms Clinton

Hillary Clinton made it safely through the confirmation process, despite a last-minute hissy fit from Senate Republicans. John McCain prevailed upon his colleagues to shape up and, in the end, only two voted against Clinton’s confirmation as secretary of state. She was then hastily sworn in.

One for the Workers

Hilda Solis does not have star power. What the nominee for labor secretary does have is a record of loyalty to those who work and want to work, and who wish to receive in exchange a decent wage and a measure of dignity.

Poll Finds Obama Is the Most Admired Man

First he wins the presidency of the U.S., then he wins Time’s Man of the Year. Now a poll shows that Barack Obama holds a sizable lead among Americans as the most admired man in the world. Coming second was George W. Bush and third was John McCain, proving once again the horrible imagination Americans have when finding inspiration outside politics.

For Howard Dean, No Good Deed Goes Unpunished

The outgoing chairman of the Democratic National Committee fought to expand his party’s reach to the red states that Barack Obama won. His pioneering Internet fundraisers became Obama’s pioneering Internet fundraisers. He refused to budge on Florida and Michigan. So why is Howard Dean out in the cold?

Pondering the Inner Meanings of Bill’s Big List

It’s far-fetched to think Hillary Clinton’s performance as secretary of state would be influenced by foreign donations to her husband’s charitable foundation. But it is naive to think that the newly revealed list of donors won’t provoke suspicion and give rise to conspiracy theories.

Caroline Kennedy

You Can Never Have Too Many Kennedys in the Senate

There is something refreshing in seeing a mother and public citizen auditioning for a second act. Beyond that, there is something tender and timely in seeing this particular woman coming home to the family business.

The Case Against Kennedy

How can Democrats, who ridiculed Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin as an inexperienced political wannabe, now embrace the idea of elevating Caroline Kennedy—who hasn’t served a day in public office—to Hillary Clinton’s New York Senate seat?

Not a Team of Rivals at All

When the journalistic pack bites into a tasty cliché, they often refuse to let go, lazily chewing and regurgitating a phrase like “team of rivals” long after the flavor is gone.

Which Hillary Will We Get?

A New Pride in Our Country

I know there’s a chance that the first African-American to make a serious run for the presidency will lose. But that is precisely what’s new: I’m talking about possibility, not inevitability. For African-Americans, this is nothing short of mind-blowing.

Sarah Zamboni Clears the Ice

Let us remember that Republicans had long targeted working mothers as the centerpiece of the culture wars. Now their heroine is the in-your-face governor who once said: “To any critics who say a woman can’t think and work and carry a baby at the same time, I’d just like to escort that Neanderthal back to the cave.”

McCain Chooses Palin as Running Mate

Q: What move can steal both a news cycle and droves of Hillary-supporting Democratic voters? A: The McCain campaign announcing Friday, just 12 hours after Barack Obama’s acceptance speech in Denver, that his running mate will be Gov. Sarah Palin of Alaska.

The End of an Institution

I suppose I should be sad to watch the decline of the once mighty political media, an institution that trained and nurtured me. But that’s not how I feel. For this was the institution that cheered when President Bush took us to war. This is also the institution that is getting this Democratic National Convention wrong, obsessed with a phony feud between Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton, wasting time interviewing that small but vengeful cult, the die-hard Hillaryites.

‘A Proud Supporter of Barack Obama’

Hillary Clinton brought down the Pepsi Center Tuesday night with a ringing endorsement of Barack Obama. If her supporters were waiting for her blessing to back the nominee, they got a mandate instead. Update: Olbermann and Dowd differ.

CNN: Clinton Camp Approaching Team Obama About VP Post

It might be hard to imagine, given the tensions and free-flying barbs between them in recent months, but Sen. Hillary Clinton may be angling to become Barack Obama’s running mate should he clinch the Democratic presidential nomination this summer.

Who if Not Hillary?

A woman? Yes. But not that woman. It is the platitude of the moment, an automatic rejoinder to any suggestion that Hillary Clinton has struggled so desperately—and so far unsuccessfully—to grasp the Democratic presidential nomination in some measure because she is female.

Hillary to Bill: Shush, You

Just when Hillary Clinton thought the flap over her 1995 trip to Bosnia had passed, her husband revived the topic—prompting her to issue him a gag order. Bill Clinton, campaigning Thursday in Indiana, brought up the media’s treatment of Hillary after she mischaracterized the scene and later acknowledged her mistake, but he apparently muddled a few facts himself.

Project Hillary

Mark Fiore’s latest animated political cartoon pokes fun at the message mayhem of the Clinton campaign. With apologies to Hillary fans who are already feeling down, the image of Project Runway’s Tim Gunn critiquing the candidate’s political design choices just fits somehow. Make it work, people.

Clinton Backtracks on Tax Returns

Under pressure during Tuesday’s debate, Hillary Clinton hinted that she might release her tax returns earlier than “once I become the nominee,” a schedule that had drawn criticism from Barack Obama and the press. But aides speaking with the media the next day retreated from that opening.

The Mail War

Hillary Clinton was so irked by a couple of Barack Obama campaign mailers that a few days ago she publicly scolded him and said “every Democrat should be outraged.” Clinton herself has been accused of sending misleading mailers to voters, including one that went out shortly after her now infamous “shame on you” news conference. For inundated Ohioans, it’s a question of whom to trust. Updated.

Clinton Caught Xeroxing

Hillary Clinton’s campaign has been stirring up the Internet and more than a few journalists with accusations of word borrowing, a charge she pressed (to the dismay of the audience) at Thursday’s Democratic debate with Barack Obama. But in that same venue, it appears she may have borrowed a few words of her own.

Why Obama Owes Women

On Tuesday, I got a sarcastic e-mail from a Hillary supporter. She forwarded a crack made by Howard Wolfson, Clinton’s media man, about Obama. “Senator Clinton,” he scoffed, “is not running on the strength of her rhetoric.” To which my friend added: “Unfortunately.”

Are the news media being beastly to Hillary Clinton? Are political reporters and commentators—as Bill Clinton suggested but didn’t quite come out and say in a radio interview Tuesday—basically in the tank for Barack Obama?

Following the Money

Barack Obama has called for Hillary Clinton to release her tax returns in light of the $5 million she lent her campaign. Here he explains why, and Clinton promises she will—but only if she wins the nomination.
