Betsy McCaughey Ross is settled in the back seat of her Chevrolet Suburban, her stockinged feet curled in a swirl of papers, pumps and candy wrappers, a Hershey bar in one hand, a car phone in the other. She has a question.
WASHINGTON - Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton brought her campaign for the White House to an end on Saturday with a rousing farewell to thousands of supporters here and an emotional and unequivocal call for her voters to get behind Senator Barack Obama, the man who defeated her for the Democratic nomination.
PHILADELPHIA - The Democratic convention is over, and delegates streamed to airports and train stations on Friday morning to return home for the summer weekend. But the contrasting back-to-back political displays -- Republicans met last week in Cleveland -- offered important lessons about the two presidential nominees, and their parties, as they head into the November general election.
The current Republican Party may also fall into that category, given how many powerful Republicans have refused to back Mr. Trump. "In 1968, the cleavage in the party was far deeper than it is now," Mr. Gitlin said. "The hatred in the streets between the Humphrey supporters and the supporters of Kennedy and McCarthy was so intense.
Senator Bernie Sanders appealed for unity at the Democratic convention, mentioning Hillary Clinton's name 15 times in his speech on Monday and declaring that she "must become the next president of the United States."
For nearly a year, Mrs. Clinton has struggled to answer questions about her use of a private email server, particularly after her conduct was excoriated by the F.B.I.; Republicans have accused her of negligence, criminal mishandling of classified information and even treason. Rightly or wrongly, the most recent controversy is what has defined her most.
"Trump has got everybody's attention," he said. Mr. Trump's ascension is a turning point in a political evolution that first upended the Republican Party in 2010, when Tea Party insurgents began defeating establishment politicians. The longtime intraparty alliance between disaffected blue-collar whites and the wealthy is unraveling; Mr. Trump seized on that change and personified it.
By Adam Nagourney and Jeremy W. Peters New York Times CLEVELAND >> It was just after 10:30 p.m. Tuesday, a coveted time slot at any political convention. But at the Quicken Loans Arena here, there were rows and rows of empty seats as Kimberlin Brown, a soap opera actress and California avocado farmer, struggled to talk over the chatter of delegates heading for the exits.
Donald Trump Jr. followed with a rousing speech for his father - but he soon yielded his spot to Ms. Brown, the actress who played the devious character Sheila Carter on "The Young and the Restless." She was killed off the show in the 1990s, according to Variety.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. David Pogue)
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both politicians Barack Obama and Mitt Romney by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama +Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
