    The California Democratic primary is up for grabs, as Hillary Clinton has watched her onetime 63-point lead in the polls shrink to six points over Sen. Bernie Sanders, according to a Field Poll released Friday. Clinton leads Sanders 47 percent to 41 percent among likely voters in the June 7 primary, with 12 percent undecided. Voters who do not state a party preference are allowed to vote in the Democratic primary, which is good news for Sanders, as unaffiliated voters in other states have been supportive. In California, nonpartisans support Sanders 49 percent to 39 percent for Clinton. The survey...

    a new lawsuit accuses the university of mishandling reports of alleged sexual assaults by student athletes, particularly football players. It alleges the university violated federal Title IX regulations against sex discrimination, fostered "a hostile sexual environment and culture" and offers a 20-year-old complaint against then-Volunteers quarterback Peyton Manning as evidence of the school's longstanding indifference. The complaint was filed February 9 in federal court in Nashville, two days after Manning led the Denver Broncos to victory in Super Bowl 50. The six accusers are not named in the complaint. A "hostile sexual environment of rape by male athletes" was "condoned...

    The feminist movement is dead. It died at the hands of Gloria Steinem. Cause of death was political strangulation. Gloria Steinem had made a name for herself for purporting to be a voice for women's rights beginning in the 60's and 70's. She was an icon for women for a long time but has repeatedly compromised her alleged principles for politics and her biases finally overtook her. Limbaugh's "feminazi" term has never been more appropriate. I began to loathe Steinem for her painful hypocrisy in the 90's when she (and HIllary) went Tammy Wynette during the Bill Clinton Presidency. She...

    Back in the 2008 primary season, I supported Hillary Clinton. That choice wasn’t easy for me, especially as Barack Obama advanced and became ever more compelling as a candidate. I felt spoiled as the year progressed: two great, revolutionary candidates; I’d be happy with either. And yet, until she conceded defeat, I stuck with Hillary for the simple reason that she is a woman. I did it for my newly dead mother, who would have loved to see the day when a woman became POTUS. My mother, who was 21 years old when Roe v. Wade passed, and to whom...

    Hillary Clinton’s older feminist supporters have a message for young women who are not backing her candidacy: Shame on you. Women were expected to help power Mrs. Clinton to the Democratic nomination, but as she struggles to overcome a tough challenge from Senator Bernie Sanders, her support among them has been surprisingly shaky. Young women, in particular, have been drawn to the septuagenarian socialist from Vermont, and the dynamic has disappointed feminists who dreamed of Mrs. Clinton’s election as a capstone to the movement. Two feminist icons of Mrs. Clinton’s generation made their frustration known over the weekend, calling on...

    During the 2008 presidential campaign, Republican Vice Presidential candidate Sarah Palin referred to Madeline Albright's somewhat well-known saying, found on a Starbucks coffee cup, that "There's a special place in Hell for women who don't help other women." At the time, Albright, who served as Secretary of State under Bill Clinton, huffed: "Though I am flattered that Governor Palin has chosen to cite me as a source of wisdom, what I said had nothing to do with politics." She naturally followed that statement with an intense political attack on Palin and GOP presidential nominee John McCain. Now that Democrat Hillary...

The Associated Press reported that Steinem plans to lead an all-female march called Women Cross DMZ. Organizers now hope South Korea will also approve the journey, tentatively scheduled for May 24. [Snip] Ahn and the other organizers are using the walk to call on President Obama and the U.N. for a formal peace treaty ending the Korean War. That conflict ended in relative stalemate after an armistice in 1953.

    Former Secretary of State Madeleine Albright became the latest Democratic voice today to take issue with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu‘s upcoming address to Congress. Netanyahu was invited by Speaker John Boehner without consultation of the White House, and several Democrats have indicated they’re boycotting the speech as a result. Netanyahu has repeatedly insisted his speech is more important that some political fighting over protocol, and assured that he’s not speaking because he wants a “confrontation” with President Obama. But as far as Albright’s concerned, “he is interfering in our internal affairs.” She explained to Andrea Mitchell, “I don’t want...

After conceding that Hamas is intentionally making civilian casualties more likely, she said that it was nevertheless the case that those causalities are sapping Israel of its “moral authority.”

    The United States and Iran have been locked in an adversarial relationship since the 1979 hostage crisis. Having worked for President Jimmy Carter, I viewed the country through the prism of that experience when I served in the Clinton administration. Nevertheless, as secretary of state I felt it important to explore the possibility of developing a less chilly relationship with Iran. During my time in office, we offered to engage in dialogue, but the Iranians were not ready. In the end, although we improved the relationship on the margins, we failed to make much of a dent in the thick...

    As President Obama said, “This deal is not built on trust. It’s built on verification.” There are a number of procedures in place to make sure Iran follows the terms of the agreement. I welcome the discussion in Congress about the agreement. The American people need to understand this—the more they understand the agreement, the more they will understand its importance. The best thing would be to have this discussion, not to make instant judgments. There should never be any question about the United States’s dedication to Israel’s security. When the next president is elected, I hope that she will...

    New York Magazine ^ | 3/25 | Maggie Lange
    Scrappy and smart and gutsy and generous — Gloria Steinem is great and, also, 80! How wonderful. Here are some of her greatest hits from New York (both as one of the original staff writers and as a great interviewee on all manner of women-related topics): - Her 1968 feature "Women and Power" about sex and politics and marriage and power. Perhaps if women had more encouragement, more opportunity to gain power on their own, there would be less of the bitterness and hypocrisy that comes from using men for subversive ends. If society stopped telling girls that men can...

    Madeleine Albright: ‘I Listen to Right-Wing Radio When I Drive’ May 3, 2013 By Melanie Hunter (CNSNews.com) – Former Secretary of State Madeleine Albright on Friday said she listens to “right-wing radio” when she drives in response to a question about climate change and warned, “If people think we’ve been arguing about fossil fuels, wait ‘til we really start arguing over water.” “I hate to tell you guys this, but I actually listen to right-wing radio as I drive, which is a good idea to stay away from me,” she said during the question and answer portion of her keynote...

    A Cornell University student has been charged in connection with a sex assault at a fraternity house, school officials said. The alleged assault happened around 2 a.m. last Sunday and resulted in the fraternity, Psi Upsilon, getting suspended, Cornell University police said. On Thursday, Ballinger, 21, of New York City, was arraigned in Ithaca City Court and was sent to Tompkins County Jail in lieu of $25,000 cash bail or $50,000 bond. University police said they identified him as the perpetrator "with the assistance of the victim."

    Chelsea Clinton, who is expecting her second child after giving birth to baby Charlotte in 2014, has a new book to read to her little ones at bedtime. A children's book about their grandmother Hillary Clinton chronicles her ascent from a young girl in Illinois to a politician in Washington D.C. Titled Hillary Rodham Clinton: Some Girls Are Born to Lead, the book starts: 'In the 1950s, it was a man's world. 'Only boys could grow up to have powerful jobs. Only boys had no ceilings on their dreams. 'Girls weren't supposed to act smart, tough or ambitious. Even though,...
  • Turning Bill Clinton into Bill Cosby: ...a massive difference between sex abuse allegations

    Turning Bill Clinton into Bill Cosby: Sorry, conservatives, there's a massive difference between their sex abuse allegations Heaven save us all from conservatives who think they have a "gotcha." And boy they sure think they have one with Bill Clinton and the supposed "hypocrisy" of feminists who don't agree that his wife's career should be derailed because of allegations of sexual harassment and assault made against him in the 1990s. At stake is this alleged unfairness that while some men accused of sexual abuse get in actual trouble for it, Clinton walks around free and even gets to campaign for...

    They were two hate-filled, bigoted municipal employees interacting in one department. Now 13 innocent people are dead in unspeakable carnage. One man spent his free time writing frightening, NRA-loving, hate-filled screeds on Facebook about the other's religion. The other man quietly stewed and brewed his bigotry, collecting the kind of arsenal that the Facebook poster would have envied. What they didn't realize is that except for their different religions they were in many ways similar men who even had the same job. One man, the Muslim, was a loser who had to travel all the way to Pakistan to get...
