Lies, Damnable Lies, and Political Commentary

V.I. Lenin

Hillary Clinton should continue her campaign

What is the rush to end this thing? Why the hurry to have it over? What, exactly, are so many people concerned about? All the wrong things, apparently. There are more and better reasons for her to persist than not.

Hillary should continue her pursuit of the Democratic nomination because: Read more about Hillary Clinton should continue her campaign

Hillary Clinton, the Electoral College Map & the Democrat’s Dilemma

Polls last week confirmed the weak showing of Barak Obama in a couple of key states that will be crucial in winning November’s general election. They also showed that Hillary Clinton has maintained an Electoral College advantage over John McCain, while other polls show Clinton dominating McCain in overall voter preference.

With the flawed Democratic primary likely resulting in Obama leading Clinton in the primary race for pledged delegates but not by enough to win outright, the nomination decision will fall to a small group of leaders; Howard Dean, Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid. What should they do? Read more about Hillary Clinton, the Electoral College Map & the Democrat’s Dilemma

The Changing Democratic Demographic

What ever happened to my Democratic Party? Why doesn’t the donkey love me anymore?

BDBlue asked a question that touches on many of the themes being discussed during this primary, here at Corrente and elsewhere, in what are increasingly emotional tones. Nothing wrong with emotion, passion is a wonderful thing, but sometimes the heat of the moment can cause us to reach conclusions that might emerge differently if we take a deep breath and look at the situation from other angles.

What questions should Hillary ask?

Update: apparently, Barack Obama's campaign has turned down the debate offer. Coward.

Now that Hillary Clinton has challenged Barack Obama to a one-on-one debate (methinks it's a smart move... he's cornered), what questions should Hillary ask him?

My choice (and yes, I'm a policy wonk, bite me!):

  • What specific policies would you implement toward more gender equality, on the job and elsewhere?
  • How would you concretely restore America's standing in the world community?
  • How would you specifically deal with the dual crisis of credit crunch and food prices?
