As we enter the final stages of the Presidential campaign, Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton continue to intensify their attacks on one another.
She is as fit to be president as Trump is not. The gap is daunting -- the wrong result would be dangerous to America and the world. But to win Clinton must address her own weaknesses as a candidate, reflected in uncomfortably high negatives, and rooted in difficulties which cannot be wished away.
If anyone had said the United States was going to make LGBT rights a leading issue at the United Nations -- I would have said that was not going to happen. When Hillary did it in 2011, it was unbelievably huge for activists all over the globe fighting for their lives.
"Message: I'm spontaneous."
I have said that the central issue for the 2016 presidential contest is the restoration and protection of voting rights. It is therefore fitting that Hillary Rodham Clinton, the leading contender for the Democratic Party's nomination for president in 2016, made voting rights the centerpiece of a speech at a major campaign stop in Houston today.
As in all matters of war and peace, the buck stops at the president's desk: it wasn't Hillary, but Barack Obama who ultimately gave the orders.
Have you heard? Hillary Clinton is running for president! As we gear up for the 2016 election cycle, I'm particularly interested in the branding direction that Clinton and the other candidates will be taking.
