Hillary Clinton in 2016? Meh.

“Hillary will be a great president.” – Markos Moulitsas of DailyKos.com

Perhaps Hillary Clinton is Markos’ cup of tea, but I’d love to see a more progressive Democratic presidential candidate, because the last thing I want is another centrist Democrat in the White House.

Is Elizabeth Warren Hillary Clinton’s worst nightmare for 2016?

This is worth a read. It’s hard to look at the Democratic Party these days and not feel as if all the energy is behind Warren. Before she was even elected, her fund-raising e-mails would net the party more cash than any Democrat’s besides Obama or Hillary Clinton. According to the Times, Warren’s recent speech [...]

2013 Elections and Beyond

On Tuesday night, Chris Christie won a second term as New Jersey Governor by about 20 points over his Democratic challenger, just as most pundits predicted. Many attribute this blow-out victory to the fact that he is perceived as a moderate Republican who can get things done. The fact of the matter is that Christie [...]

Reince Priebus threatens to take his toys and go home like a petulant child

Reince Priebus reminds me of a crybaby… The chairman of the Republican National Committee threatened on Monday to refuse to partner with CNN or NBC on any presidential primary debates if the two networks move ahead with plans for television projects on Hillary Rodham Clinton.

Reince Priebus, the chairman, said in letters to the [...]

On the supposed Benghazi “coverup”

Yeah, not so much… The cover-up story relies on the premise that Obama administration officials pushed the idea of spontaneity in order to obscure the fact that they had missed warnings of planned terrorist attack. It’s plausible that someone was pushing that story for parochial reasons in these email exchanges. Perhaps the CIA put that [...]

The sexist spin on Hillary Clinton’s Senate testimony

I know I’m a couple of days behind on this, but Aviva Shen of ThinkProgress has a great post up highlighting the sexist coverage of Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s testimony during a Senate committee hearing on the Benghazi terror attacks last week,

In fact, here’s the Thursday morning cover of the New York Post, [...]

What’s the Deal with Progressives and Sexism?

Two of my favorite liberal women talked with me about my earlier post: What’s the Deal with Progressives and Agism?

I was so tuned into the issue of agism in progressive politics, partly because I am of the generation of Americans being dissed, that I may have overlooked another issue entirely.

But it was pointed [...]

What’s the Deal with Progressives and Agism?

Just about a year ago, a candidate for local office visited Drinking Liberally to present a case for being elected over the long term incumbent. One of the knocks on the incumbent was the officeholder’s age put him out of touch with the district. Looking around the room at all of the gray hair and [...]

New York Mayor Hillary Clinton?

Secretary of State Hillary Clinton for Mayor of New York City? Absolutely, if current Mayor Michael Bloomberg has his way. In a phone call confirmed by three people, Mr. Bloomberg encouraged Mrs. Clinton to consider entering the 2013 mayor’s race, trading international diplomacy for municipal management on the grandest scale. She would, he suggested, be [...]

Let the 2016 horse race begin!

Even though the 2012 election has just wrapped up, the pollsters at Public Policy Polling have already starting polling the 2016 presidential race. Regardless, the poll found two clear frontrunners in the race: New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie for the Republicans and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton for the Democrats.

Twenty-one percent of Republicans in [...]
