Hillary Clinton Probably Used an AOL Account to Conduct Gov't Business

Hillary Rodham Clinton may be in a whole heap of trouble now that news has leaked that the former Secretary of State used a personal email account — possibly CoOlHiLl27@aol.com — to conduct her government business and never had an official state department address during her tenure.

10,000 Elephants in the Room: I Made It Through CPAC Without Puking

I am sitting in a rented banquet chair watching Carly Fiorina remove her headset. In a moment, I will stand, smile with false confidence, and replace Fiorina in the chair she vacates, facing the questions of two right wing radio hosts.

Madeleine Albright Loved Her Waffle Date With Leslie Knope

In its final season, Parks & Recreation is really going for it—taking its humor and political heart as far as they both can stretch.
