    I guess this should be filed in the "Washington Politics" thread ... I'm an African American registered Democrat. I don't mind giving conservative Republicans hell when they deserve it. But unlike many conservative, I don't mind speaking out against my Party when I think they are wrong and encouraging them to do the right thing. Anyway, white liberals are having fits about the article posted below, which was written by me and published on my blog, in Black newspapers across the country, and at the liberal Daily Kos blog.

  • Braun Falsely Claims Harvard Degrees

    The Crimson ^ | Jan 19 | Sophie T. Bearman
    Carol Moseley Braun, whose career includes a term in the U.S. Senate representing Illinois and a stint as U.S. ambassador to New Zealand, clearly has an impressive record of achievement behind her. One accomplishment that she can't claim, however, is having graduated with a degree from Harvard. Be that as it may, Braun did just that in a radio interview on a Chicago radio station last Wednesday, but Eric Zorn of the Chicago Tribune quickly caught the glitch. Braun, currently a candidate in Chicago's mayoral election, was speaking about the city's finances before changing the topic to education and saying:...

    Chicago mayoral candidate Carol Moseley Braun reported a negative income — $225,908 — to the IRS in 2008, the same year she took out a fourth mortgage on the spacious Hyde Park house she has put up for sale, records show. The former U.S. senator and ambassador released two-page summary sheets from her 2008 and 2009 tax returns in hopes of quelling a storm that erupted Monday when she said she wouldn’t release any of her tax records before the Feb. 22 municipal election. Braun changed her mind later Monday, and — like other mayoral front-runners already had done —...

Flanked by prominent black elected officials who dropped out and endorsed her bid, Braun told a crowd at the weekly Rainbow/PUSH Coalition meeting on the South Side that she has "the most credentials and the most qualifications and experience of all of the candidates running" to replace retiring Mayor Richard Daley.

    Chicago (AP) - U.S. Rep. Danny Davis has a message for former President Bill Clinton: Don't take sides in the Chicago mayor's race -- or else. Davis, a longtime friend of Clinton, warned the ex-president on Tuesday that he could jeopardize his "long and fruitful relationship" with the black community if he campaigns for former White House chief of staff Rahm Emanuel instead of one of the two leading black candidates running -- Davis or former Sen. Carol Moseley Braun.

    In front of roughly 200 supporters gathered at a cold, windy Northerly Island, former U.S. Sen.

    In 1985, Barack Obama traveled halfway across the country to take a job that he didn't fully understand. But, while he knew little about his new vocation--community organizer--it still had a romantic ring, at least to his 24-year-old ears. With his old classmates from Columbia, he had talked frequently about political change. Now, he was moving to Chicago to put that talk into action. His 1995 memoir, Dreams from My Father, recounts his idealistic effusions: "Change won't come from the top, I would say. Change will come from a mobilized grass roots. That's what I'll do. I'll organize black folks....

    Carol Mosley Braun ran for the Democrat nomination and lost. Hillary Rodham Clinton ran for the Democrat nomination and lost. So what's the difference ? Leave aside the fact that she got a few less votes than Hillary because she didn't have her last name.. but even then, why is CMB's candidacy never talked about as "historic" ? If anything, her's should have been even more so in the liberal world view given she was black AND a woman trying to accomplish in one throw what neither Hussein nor Hillary could individually.

If the main purpose of her candidacy has been to siphon votes away from Al Sharpton, then her campaign can arguably be ruled a marginal success on that goal.

The point is to cut federal and state expenditures in half over the next 25 years - at the federal level, from 20 percent to 10 of GDP. Ask Grover Norquist, he'll tell you. The federal government...

    Black Chicago is attempting to take back the Illinois Senate seat held for one term (1992 - 1998) by Democratic Presidential candidate Carole Moseley-Braun. The arithmetic says State Senator Barack Obama is the man to beat in a crowded Democratic primary field, newly enlivened by Republican incumbent Senator Peter Fitzgerald's decision, last week, not to run for another term. Blacks comprise about one-third of Illinois Democrats. Chicago politics is nothing if not "fluid." Moseley-Braun rode to victory on the strength of a massive Black and Hispanic voter registration and get-out-the-folks campaign in 1992, then spent six uneventful years dissipating the...
