Obama, Hillary Clinton don't get trade — Obama has argued with the progressive potentate Elizabeth Warren, calling her "wrong" on trade policy. The Massachusetts senator is the same potentate to whom Hillary Clinton has been religiously prostrating. What everyone does next will be critical for the 2016 elections and the future of Democratic politics.

Progressives Plan to Blitz Hillary — During the Iowa State Fair in the lead up to the 2012 elections, members of the grassroots Iowa Citizens for Community Improvement Action Fund bird-dogged leading Republican candidates like Mitt Romney. When Romney suggested he didn't want to raise taxes on people, the Iowa community leaders challenged that he should raise taxes on corporations.

The perils of flying with instruments — Not so awesome? Traveling with a cello. But because we travel a fair amount and have in the past not brought the cello, my daughter has fallen a bit behind other students in her program. So recently, my partner has lobbied strongly -- which is to say, insisted -- that we bring the cello on trips.

Demand a Higher Wage, People! — Chasten Florence was on his lunch break when he decided to join a protest outside a McDonald's in New York City on Wednesday. To be honest, Florence wasn't really sure what he was helping protest. But as he lay his body down on the sidewalk at a die-in of low-wage workers demanding a $15 wage and a union, Florence simply explained, "These are my people."

Hillary Clinton Accomplishments - Presidency 2016 — Hillary Rodham Clinton, the first serious candidate from either party to jump into the 2016 race, has been in the public eye since at least 1978, when she became First Lady of Arkansas.

Why Hillary Clinton should take a pay cut — Here's the announcement presidential candidate Hillary Clinton should make: "Today in America, women earn on average 77 cents for every dollar men earn. And the gap is even greater for women of color. That's unconscionable. As president, my top priority will be fixing inequality and ensuring that 100% of the population is paid 100% of what they're worth.

The big gay wedding cake quiz — Recently, Indiana passed a law that explicitly allowed private businesses to cite religion to deny service to certain customers. The law, which many saw as a veil for anti-gay discrimination, was then amended to bar discrimination based on sexual orientation and gender identity.

Hey, Christian Business Owners: The Government Isn’t ‘Forcing’ You To Do Anything — Still, in the wake of the controversy surrounding Indiana's law, conservatives don't see it that way. Even potential Republican presidential candidates are getting in on the assertions. Rick Santorum recently said: If you're a print shop and you are a gay man, should you be forced to print 'God Hates Fags' for the Westboro Baptist Church because they hold those signs up?

Internet cats will never die (Opinion) — But the sad doggone truth is that if you're a dog on the Internet, no one cares, because the geeks who rule the Web are focused on felines. The digital landscape is saturated with cats. On his Diary of Numbers blog, back in 2010, Aaron Santos, physics professor and author of " How Many Licks?"

Can an ex-dictator clean up Nigeria? — But the peaceful transition of power from President Goodluck Jonathan to President Buhari is the first of its kind in history. And the fact that the winner ran on an anti-corruption platform suggests that ordinary Nigerians have finally had enough of the venality of their elites.
