I try not to judge people on their reflexes. For example, it seems to me that it was probably Representative Rashida Tlaib’s reflex to boo Hillary Clinton at a recent Sanders rally. I doubt that she’d planned on booing, the boo just erupted out… Continue Reading “We All Boo Sometimes”

99 New: An Open Letter to My Dear Friend Hillary

Dear Hillary, I daresay in this age of hyperbole and conjecture that it is entirely possible that someone without your best interests at heart planted the rumor that you are thinking of running again for President in 2020.

Satisfaction

Trump likes it that this bomb stuff is happening. He’s like a teenage arsonist sitting in a grove of trees watching the neighbor’s barn burn down. He’s not sorry, not for a single second, he wants to see it burn. That’s why he went… Continue Reading “Satisfaction”

On the Street Tonight

When you haven’t done it for a while, you forget how great it feels to be in a crowd, holding a sign, with a lot of good people, holding different signs, all caring so much about what happens next in our country. Tonight, in… Continue Reading “On the Street Tonight”

What Hillary Should Do Next

None of us is surprised that Hillary Clinton lost in New Hampshire. The polls and pundits have been predicting this for weeks. So it’s done. What’s next? As a very strong supporter of Hillary Clinton, this is what I think she ought to do… Continue Reading “What Hillary Should Do Next”

Note to Millennials: Saying Doesn’t Make It So

I get why young Progressives are supporting Bernie Sanders. I’d be disappointed in them if they didn’t. Don’t get me wrong. I completely support Hillary Clinton. I list my reasons in an essay published in July. My opinion hasn’t changed; it’s just become firmer:… Continue Reading “Note to Millennials: Saying Doesn’t Make It So”

Why I’m Absolutely, 100% for Hillary Clinton

I’ve been watching as former Hillary supporters fall deeper and deeper in love with Bernie Sanders. Every day, there are new Bernie Sanders memes on Facebook, one friend after another sharing the latest capsule summary of his great ideas. Unlike other ‘five things you… Continue Reading “Why I’m Absolutely, 100% for Hillary Clinton”
