Hillary has withstood the assault!

Very positive outlook!

Nothing like positivity, is there? The best part of Democratic blogs!


Here’s the problem for Joe Biden, a good and decent man whom we admire and respect tremendously: that moment has passed.

Hillary has survived one of the fiercest assaults ever launched against a political leader.

We have chronicled every phase of that assault, from the false, unethical and dangerous New York Times article alleging that Hillary was under criminal investigation, to the overhyped, dishonest and discredited Q poll pretending that Hillary is seen by voters as a “liar.”

Despite the onslaught, Hillary remains strong and steady; her campaign has weathered the attack and is turning the corner.

Humans are slow to see paradigm shifts. Typically, it is only in hindsight that we realize the ground has shifted. So far in this presidential race, it shifted once against Hillary. It is now shifting back in her favor. It may be imperceptible to many outside observers, but to anyone who has worked on a national campaign, there’s a gut sense of when the worm has turned. It has turned for Hillary. A good story here, a tightening poll there, and the negative narrative will (grudgingly) give way to a positive one.

Of course, Hillary is hardly out of the woods. There will be new waves of attack, more vicious rhetoric directed at her, and more fake scandals ginned up. But one thing is for certain: the formidable institutional forces arrayed against her have not succeeded in knocking her out of the race. Hillary has taken a political gut blow, but if anyone can take a punch, it’s Hillary Clinton. Voters know that her resilience and perseverance are among her greatest assets and the perfect rationale to elect her president.

The ultimate gender barrier is still on track to be broken.

Alabama will require students to learn about evolution, climate change

Please, do not go to link and read any of the plus 1,000 comments and counting...

Alabama is updating its science standards to require that students understand evolution and learn about climate change.

Educators say the new rules don't require that students in the Bible Belt state believe in evolution or accept the idea that climate is changing globally.

But students will be required to understand the theory of evolution starting next year. And teachers will address climate change, which wasn't a focus in the state's previous, decade-old standards.

The state school board approved the new standards unanimously Thursday.

Now that Chip Kelly has sold his soul...

Where can Tim Tebow play?

Houston? Cleveland? Dallas?


Rest in peace, Wayne Dyer.

"The highest form of ignorance is when you reject something you don't know anything about." - Wayne Dyer

I came across a Wayne Dyer PBS program many years back on "The Power of Intention." For me and many others, he gave some measure of credibility and curiosity regarding some rather New Agey stuff that assisted in making that "leap of faith" in a cynical, secular, and yes, commercialized world.

A spiritualist I knew in the '80s had one motto - "Whatever works!"

“Heaven on Earth is a choice you must make, not a place you must find.”

Rest in peace, Dr. Dyer.
