hillary clinton 2008
While My Wife Teared Up When Hillary Was Nominated, My Daughter Was Unimpressed. But That's A Good Thing.
My wife, a schoolteacher, watched the DNC for hours today, tearing up as Hillary Clinton was nominated for president. But my thirteen-year-old daughter didn't share the same emotion, wondering what the fuss was all about. She's now used to hearing about the accomplishments of women. And that's a good thing.
What I know of Hillary's journey I know only in the context of my lifetime, and it's easy to feel that Hillary has accomplished much of what she's accomplished alone. But the reality is other women ran for both president and vice president before 2008, all aiding in the realization of Clinton's 2016 "clinch."
After Nevada, Democratic Officials Risk a 'Fractured Convention' By Favoring Clinton Over Bernie Sanders
The voting irregularities, election fraud, and voter suppression taking place in 2016 is nothing new. Clinton had engaged in this type of campaign against Obama, and her campaign has repeated these tactics against Sanders.
If Hillary Clinton Treated Jewish Americans Like She's Treated African Americans, Democrats Would Notice
The premise of the title above has nothing to do with Israel, or any perception of political power possessed by Jewish Americans. Rather, it's a discussion of a double-standard that I see, as a Jewish American and political writer, between the use of racism, versus anti-Semitism, in American politics.
An iceberg named Hillary Clinton threatens the system of honest graft that provides political power to so many establishment Democrats. Superdelegates and the DNC know that an irreparable fracture within the Democratic Party awaits, if Bernie Sanders isn't the nominee.
Every single one of the voting irregularities the Obama campaign complained about in 2008 have been experienced by the Bernie Sanders campaign. History is repeating itself in 2016.
Bernie Sanders is the only Democrat not linked to an FBI investigation. If this doesn't mean anything to you, then you're too terrified of Trump's rallies to realize that Clinton could get indicted.
I am not aligned with Ms. Jenner on most political issues. However, the woman is absolutely right about one thing. Here is a list of 10 statements from Hillary Clinton that are either lies, deception through omission, or blatant attempts at obfuscation.
While Bernie might not ask Clinton why she had the server, the answer will make him president. Hillary Clinton was the only Secretary of State since the invention of email never to use a State.gov email address, and the reasons why she used a private server exclusively will lead to Bernie Sanders winning the Democratic nomination, and destroying Donald Trump in the general election.
Bernie Sanders does better against Donald Trump. Be careful what you wish for, because Donald Trump could be president if Clinton is nominated. As it stands, Bernie Sanders won big on Tuesday. He'll fight to the end, and the FBI hasn't voted yet.
Like sports, American politics is a team game where the rival must be defeated at all costs. Unlike sports, however, Hillary Clinton gets to make up the rules, primarily because her supporters simply don't care about issues like FBI investigations or prison lobbyists.
Bernie Sanders has indeed earned everything he's ever accomplished in politics, and was never given a free pass on scandal or controversy. He's certainly benefited from being white, but this benefit doesn't allow him to circumvent an FBI investigation or flawed Congressional votes on war.
Bernie Sanders has positive favorability ratings. He's the only leading candidate in 2016 with positive favorability ratings. If you care about losing to a Republican this year, then you should care about this fact.
Jeb's embrace of his brother cost him dearly, while Hillary's support of Obama helped her campaign recover.
The Bernie Bro myth allows Hillary Clinton, and especially her white supporters, to utilize non-white Democrats and people of color to their advantage. Essentially, they've placed 45 million black citizens, and 54 million Latino citizens, into one favorable poll number, without ever explaining why Hillary is better on racial issues than Bernie.
Ta-Nehisi Coates, Harry Belafonte, Cornel West, Danny Glover, and Ben Jealous Are Voting for Bernie Sanders
Like every other community in the United States, African American intellectuals and political leaders represent a wide range of viewpoints, and while Dr. Cornel West and Ta-Nehisi Coates might disagree on certain issues, they're voting for Bernie Sanders.
Bernie Sanders will save America from becoming a coin flip democracy because his value system is the antithesis of Clinton's coin flip evolution on almost every major topic. In terms of fundraising after Iowa, and delegates, he won the first contest.
While many in the media are just starting to jump on Bernie's bandwagon, the paradigm will change dramatically after Iowa and New Hampshire wins.
Hillary Clinton, not Bernie Sanders, should be singled out as furthering white supremacy and privilege. Someone needs to define white supremacy, if indeed accepting money from prison lobbyists isn't an egregious example of privilege and supremacy.
