dagblog.com — (Hillary is on the left) In less than three hours, we shall witness HISTORY! Issues abound! Is slavery wrong? Should rich folks be able to vote? Is Hillary a traitor?

Ivanka Trump Donald Child Care Paid Maternity Leave

refinery29.com — Depending on your point of view, Ivanka is either earnestly humanizing or just another Trump with a talent for branding. But none of that matters because here's the thing: Ivanka Trump is not running for president. Her father is.

Rachel Sklar Hillary Clinton Health Double Standards

refinery29.com — Like every other non-doctor on the internet, I have opinions on Hillary Clinton's health. And as a non-doctor on the internet, I am going to go further and actually prescribe something! Not for her, for the rest of us: We should all take a chill pill.

I’m so torn by this.

medium.com — I'm so torn by this. I miss the public intellectual, especially the one aimed at the middlebrow (me!) audience of interested non-specialists. That includes everyone from Woody Allen to Chomsky to Bertrand Russell in popularizing mode. Maybe that's not so wide an arc as I'd like to think?

Did Trump fake his own "medical report"?

dagblog.com — The media has been puzzling for months over Donald Trump's so-called medical record in which his doctor declared, "If elected, Mr. Trump, I can state unequivocally, will be the healthiest individual ever elected to the presidency."

Bernie Sanders Is Getting Old

dagblog.com — You know how sometimes grandpa seems so cute and well-meaning but then somebody gives him a bourbon and asks him about how the neighborhood has changed over the years and he starts in on the really uncomfortable talk about how everything was fine before the Koreans moved in? That's where Bernie is now. He's now arguing that the primary process is biased against him and so the super delegates who he had once claimed were all unfairly in the tank for Hillary Clinton should give him the nomination at the convention.

Why It's a Big Deal Hillary Clinton Plans to Shake Up the Fed

rollingstone.com — Hillary Clinton is taking on the United States Federal Reserve System, but in a wonky, bottom's-up way that shows her understanding of a complex and widely misunderstood organization. This is not " End the Fed" or even "audit the Fed" - she wants to rebuild it from its fundamentals at the regional level.

Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton Address To Morgan Stanley Managing Directors

dagblog.com — Official Transcript Date: June 26, 2014 Location: Moretti Grand Ballroom at The Watergate Hotel, Washington, D.C. I'd like to welcome the new class of Managing Directors of this august financial institution. Congratulations on your achievements and, of course, Hail Togroth the Sumerian.

@TheRealDFK That's "a hippo." And it had gained, to be fair, a tremendous amount of weight. It was in People magazine!
