The pro-abortion Democrat couldnt say, but in not answering, provided a unique insight into what abortion supporters think about children that are 16, 18, 20, 24 weeks old, etc.

Sanders, an independent Vermont senator, has stunned political watchers as he's gained on Democratic front-runner Hillary Clinton in the polls. His populist campaign rhetoric has tapped into the base of the Democratic Party's uneasiness with Clinton's candidacy. "He is a self-identified socialist," CNN's Dana Bash asked Wasserman Schultz, a representative from Florida. "If he is your party's nominee, would that social label hurt the Democratic Party's chances of winning the White...

    By now most of us have heard the excruciating news that Debbie, Charlie and Alan are considering running for Rubio's Senate seat in 2016. This is where we need Jeb Bush to come in And Put A Stop To It !!. If Jeb runs, you know the GOP and Conservative Base will make sure he keeps the seat Red. His odds of getting the GOP nomination will likely dwindle in the coming months. Hopefully when he sees the numbers and the tea leaves, where as he will never surpass the four leading contenders, he will then have to consider running...

    By now, youve probably heard about cannabis-gate. DNC Chair Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz allegedly put a deal forward where she would switch positions on medicinal marijuana if a Democratic donor withdrew criticism of her for not backing a related statewide initiative last year; it was defeated by a narrow margin. John Morgan, the donor who slammed Schultz for not backing the measure, contributed heavily to the pro-medical marijuana campaign. Of course, Schultz has denied the consideration of any deal regarding this debacle. Yet, theres more; Democrats dont want Debbie to run either. Shes turned off many within Democratic circles, with...

    Buried inside a Politico report aboutDemocratic National Committee Chairwoman Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultzs (D-FL) future aspirations was an interesting revelation: When [Wasserman Schultz] sensed Obama was considering replacing her as chair in 2013, she began to line up supporters to suggest the move was both anti-woman and anti-Semitic.Wasserman Schultz isreportedly very much at odds with White House staffers, and rarely even speaks with President Barack Obama.The report mainly focuses on Wasserman Schultzs political future, and whether she should stay on as DNC chair through the 2016 campaign, co-chair a likely Hillary Clinton presidential campaign, or even run for Senate in...

    Wasserman Schultzs office said shed switch positions on medical pot if a donor took back his criticism, emails show. Democratic National Committee Chair Debbie Wasserman Schultzs office offered to change her position on medical marijuana if a major Florida donor recanted his withering criticism of her, according to emails obtained by POLITICO. The proposal to Orlando trial lawyer John Morgan was straightforward: retract critical statements he made to a reporter in return for Wasserman Schultz publicly backing his cannabis initiative that she had trashed just months earlier. Morgan declined the offer with a sharp email reply sent to a go-between,...

    Florida Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz, the Democratic National Committee chair, is strongly considering a bid for U.S. Senate, calculating that having Hillary Clinton at the top of the 2016 ticket would help lift her candidacy in a year-of-the-woman campaign. Driving Wasserman Schultzs interest: the increasing likelihood that Sen. Marco Rubio will run for the White House and that he ultimately wont seek reelection in 2016, Democratic insiders familiar with her thinking say.

    In a sometimes heated meeting with Israels ambassador to the U.S., several House Democrats expressed anger Wednesday over Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahus acceptance of a Republican invitation to address Congress next month. Some of the seven lawmakersall of whom are Jewish and strong supporters of Israelurged the prime minister to postpone the speech or hold it somewhere other than Congress, participants said. They told Ambassador Ron Dermer that Netanyahu was unwise to accept a GOP invitation that bypassed President Barack Obama, and to schedule the speech only two weeks before Netanyahu seeks another term in Israels elections. The meetings purpose...

    House Rules Committee Chairman Pete Sessions has rebuked Democratic National Committee Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz for voting on behalf of Florida Republican Rep. Mario Diaz-Balart. On Tuesday, Wasserman Schultz was in the speaker's lobby next to the House floor while her home-state colleague was caught up in an interview nearby with a reporter just before a roll-call vote, according to The Hill. "Deb, are you going in?" Diaz-Balart asked before handing her his voting card, The Hill said. "Can you" he said, his voice trailing off as he handed her the card.

    DES MOINES, Iowa Texans Ted Cruz and Rick Perry courted Iowa conservatives on Saturday at the first major gathering of the 2016 Republican field a chance for more than a half-dozen White House hopefuls to throw elbows, shape narratives, generate buzz and frame the choice to their advantage.Perry, making his first foray as an ex-governor, cast himself as a seasoned executive who can actually point to achievements unlike, say, a senator.I got a feeling that after six years of disappointment, of mediocrity and decline, a slow-course correction is not what voters are going to be looking for...
