Brent Budowsky: This century and very possibly this decade will witness the first female president while the number of women in Congress is soaring and the epic battle for pay equity will continue to escalate until equal pay is achieved.
Brent Roske: If you’re tired of hearing how the two parties don’t communicate with each other then send me to Congress. The true art form of Congress is the music of Compromise.
Brent Budowsky: Big things are happening in Texas, America and the world. Women are advancing on many fronts, and women are increasingly playing important leadership roles. The issues far transcend abortion.
David Love: That 2010 midterm election. It is the gift that just keeps on giving. And it is proof that elections do matter.
Ted Vaill: The Grumpy Old People’s party has consistently tromped on the rights of our female citizens, urging that a woman’s freedom to choose whether or not to give birth to a baby, in some states even if put into her body as a result of rape or incest, should not be allowed.’
Anthony Samad: Clinton was an elite politician in 2008. Romney was the elite’s choice in 2012. Neither attracted enough mass appeal to win the Presidency. Elitism is out. Populism is in.
Brent Budowsky: With the panicked and insulting reaction of Gov. Rick Perry (R) to Wendy’s iconic filibuster, and Wendy’s cool and classy rebuttal, we have learned something new in the hours since her filibuster.
Brent Budowsky: Imagine if the next president is a woman who breaks through the glass ceiling in America, once and for all, and slams shut the revolving door of special interest ownership of the government of America, in ways that are real and true and honest.
Mary Beth Fiedler: The full range of the Los Angeles political spectrum supported the passage of Proposition C, and the overwhelming support for the measure was spread throughout the city.
Brent Budowsky: I suggest Texas Democrats put the Lone Star State at the forefront of key races in 2014 by supporting and potentially drafting State Sen. Wendy Davis to run for governor of Texas and end the arrogant, far-right and crony capitalist era of Texas GOP rule.
Brent Budowsky: Texas Republicans are using a special session of the Texas legislature to launch an aggressive attack against voting rights that will backfire and ignite a wave of Hispanic voter turnout that will propel Democrats in Texas and nationally.
Randy Shaw: Democratic success in 2014 hinges not on the impact of the IRS and other “scandals” but on passing comprehensive immigration reform, rejecting the Keystone XL Pipeline, and avoiding a budget deal that undermines Social Security.
Brent Budowsky: Don’t laugh. Ted Cruz is apparently thinking of bringing his ability to outrage a majority of voters and alienate a majority of his Senate Republican colleagues to a campaign to be commander in chief.
