It seemed odd to a lot of people that the Democratic candidates debated each other on five separate occasions without being asked about abortion. The situation became much more curious last night, when Bernie Sanders finally raised the issue — but without using the word “abortion.” Clinton, too, never used the actual…
Should they be elected president, Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders have both committed to reinterpreting the Helms Amendment, which currently bans women in conflict and developing countries from receiving federal aid funds for an abortion, even if they were raped.
You may have noticed an increase in virally-shared political pieces on your Facebook page recently. Here’s our contribution to the cause.
The excellent campaign run so far by Bernie Sanders moves ever closer towards its greatest weakness: Sanders’ chances, or lack thereof, in the general election. The NH primaries foreshadowed a still hypothetical Trump-Sanders ballot—in which Sanders would, as many Democrats fear, be too far left, and we could be stuck…
The content of several paid speeches Hillary Clinton gave to Goldman Sachs has become an issue of contention: publicly, Clinton has condemned the banks for their role in the 2008 financial crisis; might she have been any less reproachful behind closed doors?
None other than Bill Clinton is criticizing the Berniebro phenomenon, saying at an event in New Hampshire this weekend that Sanders supporters subject his wife’s supporters online to sexist and “profane” attacks. Meanwhile, Kathleen Willey, a woman who in 1998 accused Bill Clinton of groping her, has reportedly signed…
Yesterday, former secretary of state Madeleine Albright made waves when she took the Taylor Swift approach to introducing Hillary Clinton (or the Swift via Katie Couric via Albright approach. Whatever). “There’s a special place in hell for women who don’t help each other,” Albright told a crowd in New Hampshire.
Apologies for the Bill Maher clip, but here’s feminist icon Gloria Steinem offering an interesting theory as to why so many young women are supporting Bernie Sanders instead of Hillary Clinton.

Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY), Sen. Amy Klobuchar (D-MN), Sen. Debbie Stabenow (D-MI), and Sen. Jeanne Shaheen (D-NH).
One delightful thing about this campaign season will surely be the smart, self-aware, non-obnoxious ways people who don’t like Hillary Clinton talk about her. Like the always reliable media critics at Fox & Friends, who are merely pointing out that isn’t her campaign, in a way, just “bra-burning”?
Plaid and pinstripes, marshmallows and celery, ketchup and fish—all pairs that famously clash. Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders also famously clash, but not because of how they taste, because of their words and ideas.
At the New Yorker, writer Alexandra Schwartz wonders if “millennials” should “get over Bernie Sanders,” owing to the outsized political hope that “youth” have before they realize that every politician is a shill, nobody with real values is actually electable, and also that God Is Dead. The writer knows this because…
Hard to believe we have to have this conversation, but here we are: GOP candidates, you must stop pledging to “spank” Hillary Clinton. You must stop suggesting voters should “spank” her. You must stop fantasizing about spanking her on the debate stage. Do you even realize how this makes you look? Surely you do.
Earlier today, Bernie Sanders said that he would not participate in Thursday’s scheduled debate unless Hillary Clinton met certain conditions outlined by his campaign.

As more and more opinions on the #OscarsSoWhite controversy are being collected, it has now reached past the world of entertainment and into politics. Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton spoke her thoughts regarding the Academy’s overwhelming whiteness and this year’s lack of nominees of color. “I think…
In a statement issued yesterday, on the anniversary of Roe vs. Wade, Bernie Sanders called for the repeal of the Hyde Amendment.
Like the stodgiest rappers on Earth arguing about who’s more legit, Bernie Sanders and Hillary Clinton have been engaged this week in a slow-motion beef over who, precisely, belongs to the “political establishment.” You may be surprised to learn Hillary Clinton does not think seem to think she is in that club.
