Pelosi On Clinton

At a Christian Science Monitor breakfast this morning Nancy Pelosi was asked about sexism in the Democratic primaries. The highest-ranking woman to ever win U.S. public office seemed a little taken aback. “Is there sexism? Probably so. Is it responsible for the defeat? I really wouldn’t have the scientific knowledge – all of the …

Lieberman’s Liberation

Story today on Lieberman’s slow separation from the Democratic Party.

One detail that didn’t make it into the story:
Anyone looking for a hint at where Joe Lieberman’s loyalties lies need go no further than the foyer to his Senate offices. There the Connecticut Independent has a proud display of photos of himself with U.S. …

The Heat in Washington

It’s an unseasonably hot June in Washington — today could go over 100 degrees the weatherman says. The heat wave is probably not directly linked to global warming but in case anyone was wondering about what happened to the Lieberman/Warner bill I posted about last week, my colleague Eric Pooley has this great wrap up on the bill’s …

I will do whatever it takes

Pelosi for Obama?

An interesting endorsement for Obama today. Pelosi’s BFF George Miller, a fellow Californian who chairs the House Education and Labor Committee, announced today he’s endorsing Obama .

Pelosi has so far stayed out of the race. But when her top advisor who also happens to be a famous champion of women politicians endorses Obama, does it …
