Alicia Colon, in the Sun(NY), picks on, or better yet picks apart, Terry McAuliffe’s inane analogy of Mrs. Clinton with Lady Thatcher.  Now a Times of London article is trying to portray Mrs. Clinton as a tough, Margaret Thatcher type, which explains why our senator has been perfecting her hawkish demeanor. She knows that America is definitely ready for […]

Irony abounds; Hillary Clinton may ahve just killed off public financing of presidential campaigns… and thereby much of the limitations attached to that financing. Or, so suggests an article in the WaPo this morning. Though she will doubtless sell it this way at some point during the next two years, she most certainly did not do […]
