Donna Edwards is an amazing woman and would be an incredible asset to the House. I've met her and interviewed her, so I've seen what she's got first hand. She's running again against Mr. Wynn, whom is getting the support of Speaker Pelosi. It's time for a little diplomacy from the Speaker, because no female [...]

via Greg Sargent Hillary Clinton is “unelectable,” so says Edwards in a Halloween edition of “Scary Times.” The question from Edwards: What if Hillary Clinton is the Democratic nominee? The answer: Rudy Giuliani will be the next president. If this is supposed to be cute it’s not. If it’s supposed to be funny no Democrat [...]
The debate last night was something else. I’ve never been prouder to be a Democrat. But evidently Tim Russert felt that with Hillary Clinton the frontrunner it was his job to do what her opponents have been unable to do for months: attack her full out, no matter the subject or tactic. So Russert came [...]
updated I just received Senator Biden’s statement on the Convention of the Law of the Sea. They’re below, in full. If you need background, I’ve offered some here and here. There was also a great post over at Democracy Arsenal yesterday you should check out as well. Interestingly enough, Scott Paul over at the Washington [...]
The Democratic Debate updated – VOTE BELOW VIDEO: First 10 minutes of the debate. VIDEO: Biden on Pakistan VIDEO: Iran, Nukes, Clinton, Biden and Kyl-Lieberman Biden on Rudy Giuliani, besides that he’s the most unqualified man since George W. Bush to want to be president… “There’s only three things he mentions in a sentence: a [...]
Andrew has advice for his favorite candidate and he is partially right. But what he should really be doing is attacking Giuliani. I say partially, because he definitely should keep his target area wide to include all of the Republicans. They’ve given him a perfect shot. But it appears that some GOP frontrunners are once [...]
What an embarrassing exchange for a man who wants to be the Attorney General of the United States. These people seem to come in with great resumes, only to be shrunk to mere mouthpieces once the Bush policy is poured into their heads. Senator Dodd came out against Mukasey. So did Senator Obama. “We urgently [...]
Rudy’s Neocon Crazies updated UPDATE: Think Progress has more. The above interview, which TPM caught I’m happy to say, really is instructive. Mr. Podhoretz shows no patience, respect or tolerance for the point of view Fareed Zakaria is offering. The simple truth is that containment and sanctions worked for Saddam, as well as many other [...]
graphic via Max Blumenthal has a a screamer of a video he put together from the “values voters” conference. That is if you consider wingnuttery, severe homophobia and general mania a “value.” Dobson was the high point for the “values voters.” He leveled the boom on ‘Mr. 9/11.” “They talk about the lesser of two [...]
That sound you just heard was the collective explosion of Sean Hannity and Ann Coulter’s heads exploding. If only. Long before former President Gerald Ford left the mortal plain, he let fly and Tom DeFrank got the story and has been making the rounds, first on “Meet the Press.” This exchange on Ronald Reagan is [...]
A commercial for the status quo. These guys have no answers at all. None. Zero. Zip.
Another Obama Blunder updated The pinpoint accuracy of John Aravosis is hurting Obama, especially with McClurkin’s own words to add to the mix. If this is the company Mr. Obama keeps, well, you’ve really got to wonder about his judgment. However, nothing is as damaging as the foolhardy tactic Mr. Obama is using trying to [...]
Taylor Marsh LIVE! 3:00 p.m. eastern – 12:00 pacific Missed the show? Podcast is up. FEMA fallout & News; Iran on Sunday, and the B2; Matthews Clinton Marriage Fetish in Flames Sunday show conversation revolved around Iran. The video above says it all.

Interesting study from the Project for Excellence in Journalism and the Joan Shorenstein Center on the Press, Politics and Public Policy, found at Journalism.org. It helps explain why so many people stopping by here are surprised by the coverage I present on Clinton. It doesn’t mimic the negative press she’s hammered with across the media, [...]
I’m not a Sox fan. I’m a St. Louis Cardinals girl and have been my entire life. In fact, I go back to when Tim McCarver was a catcher for the Cards, not an announcer. Listening to Harry Caray and Jack Buck every season when I was a kid, I used to dream of doing [...]

THE 21st century world offers ways to tweak your appearance, or alter it altogether, with women finally able to combat directly the comparison that’s always been around. Men look distinguished as they age, while women look old, unattractive, or to use Rush Limbaugh’s favorite comment, who wants to look at a woman with wrinkles? The 2012 plastic surgery statistics are out and the American Society of Plastic Surgery tells the story.
The real question about Hillary is this: When people take a new look at her in the coming years, will they see the past or the future — Mrs. Clinton or Madam President? – Maureen Dowd IT’S A classic front page from Huffington Post, coupled with a post by Jason Linkins, which details what’s been going on.

“Norma Rae is a survivor and for the first time in her life she’s got a chance to become something more… a winner.” – Promo for “Norma Rae” CRITICS like Anne-Marie Slaughter, but especially Maureen I-Love-My-Pearls Dowd, and others [most of whom didn't read the book or do their homework] who are blaming Sheryl Sandberg for being a billionaire Ivy League graduate, while accusing her of letting corporations and government off the hook, are missing a major point.
Great sex doesn’t always just happen. Sometimes, it takes a little planning, especially if — like many Americans — you’ve been in a bit of a sex rut. Do some prep work by turning your bedroom into a love nest: Make the bed (with new, or at least clean, sheets), tidy up, light a candle or two, and queue up a sexy playlist on your iPod.
“You Don’t Own Me” PSA -Official from You Don't Own Me on Vimeo. WHO DOESN’T know the song “You Don’t Own Me,” sung by Leslie Gore? The movie First Wives Club helped to reignite the relevancy of the song.
“Last night I interviewed Jill Stein the presidential candidate for the Green Party on this show. And I confess right now, I should have asked her to just get out of the race.” – Jennifer Granholm, “The War Room” [Current TV] THE ARGUMENT Jennifer Granholm makes above is a tactic that no longer fits the times.
“With that drum magazine, he could have gotten off 50, 60 rounds, even if it was semiautomatic, within one minute,” Chief Oates said. [New York Times] IN THE GAPING MAW of our leadership vacuum stands Aurora Police Chief Daniel Oates, whose resolve, vulnerability and humility inside the vortex of a man made hell revealed what nobody in Congress or either political party has shown in decades. Leadership without regard to anything but his own duty to the people, which included the cops in the eye of volcanic carnage.
“Rick Doblin has done a lot for the field, but he is more of a populist,” Grob says. “We need careful and controlled scientific studies showing the efficacy of these drugs so funding can continue.” Broader awareness of these sorts of end-of-life psychedelic studies could be good for everyone, the researchers say.
*updated below* So much for keep calm and carry on, what Joe Scarborough proclaims to be his motto. It was the weirdest one-on-one back and forth with a high profile talking head imaginable. It makes high school look mature.

Despite rising public concern about the federal budget deficit, Americans favor keeping Social Security and Medicare benefits as they are rather than taking steps to reduce the budget deficit (by 60% vs. 32%). – Public Wants Changes in Entitlements, Not Changes in Benefits This is starting early, so it’s time to revisit the facts.
“If we can prove that a biological attack originated in a country that attacked us, then all bets are off.” – Sect. Hillary Clinton Women can do it, too.
The interview with Obama by George Stephanopoulos wasn’t nearly as contentious as the interview with the Edwardses. No Republican talking points from Stephanopoulos yesterday, like when he accused Edwards of abandoning the troops with this beauty: “Do you think the Democrats should be saddled with the idea of completely cutting off funding for the troops?” Or this one: “You know, a lot of Democrats still in the Senate think that your position here is cynical political theater.
