Trump falsely accuses Obama of ‘political scandal’ to distract us from his own many failures 0

President Trump recently concocted a new phrase to continue his absurd attacks and insults against President Barack Obama. I’m not even going to dignify the phrase by including it in this column. Suffice to say, without providing any facts (his usual method of operation), Trump accused his predecessor in the White House of “the greatest political scandal in […]

Coronavirus and women — Jobs report highlights inequities. US must do this 0

Earlier this week we celebrated Mother’s Day. As someone who has fought for the rights of women, especially women of color, throughout my life, we have rejoiced with family and friends over how far women, including mothers, have come in our professional and personal lives, and also agonized over how far we still have to go. This […]

A coronavirus to-do list for the pandemic and beyond: First, open our eyes and hearts. 0

Diseases don’t discriminate. Societies do. We need to keep that in mind when fighting the coronavirus. And while each infectious disease is different, there’s one constant: It’s the poor who suffer the most.  This pandemic is showing us what we must do — not just now, but going forward — by magnifying the inequities of our […]

Elections during coronavirus – Americans shouldn’t have to risk their lives to vote 0

Candidly, I’m shocked that I even have to write this. And I’m horrified that the current administration and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., are putting American lives at risk by forcing them to vote in-person during a pandemic involving a highly communicable virus. But just this week, we learned from the Wisconsin Department of Health that 52 people who reported that they […]

Everything is coming together on the Democratic side of the 2020 presidential race. That’s good news, not just for Democrats, but for independents, and even for disaffected Republicans who […]

Coronavirus response – In a time of national crisis, here’s what each of us can do. 0

Pandemics are filled with paradoxes. Paradoxes such as we need to come together – while remaining six feet apart. I have nothing but confidence in the American people. But we have to be constantly informed about what we must do together to properly mitigate the spread of the coronavirus. We crave answers and reassurances, not excuses and accusations. This sort of event should bring out the best in us. And it most certainly […]

Why I’m upset by false Republican claims about Democratic presidential nominating process. 0

I don’t wish hell on anybody. Right now, I’m doing my darnedest to avoid it for all of us. But I recently garnered media attention for saying during an appearance on Fox News Channel that Republican National Committee Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel could “go to hell.” No, that’s not how my mother raised me, but I was deeply […]

Democrats: Rough week? Snap out of it. You have 1 job: Save America from Trump. 0

As a former party official, field organizer and campaign manager, I’ve got one message for my fellow Democrats: Snap out of it! Democrats right now need a lot more than a pep talk or a wake-up call. We need a cold slap and a loud voice in our face, reminding us to pull it together. […]
