Kerry Finalized as Secretary of State Nominee

By: Friday December 21, 2012 9:15 am

Former Democratic Presidential candidate John Kerry will become the next nominee for Secretary of State, replacing Hillary Clinton and creating another Senate vacancy. President Obama will formally announce the nomination today at the White House, according to sources. He is not expected to face much resistance in the Senate for confirmation. Kerry will likely recuse [...]

Report: John Kerry to Be Named Secretary of State

By: Saturday December 15, 2012 11:20 am

Former Democratic Presidential candidate John Kerry has been chosen to serve as Secretary of State, according to a Chicago Sun-Times columnist who heard it from an unidentified White House source. This doesn’t exactly come from left field. Kerry, the chair of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, was rumored to be on the short list for [...]

Warren’s Success: A Politician Actually Fighting for Jobs

By: Thursday October 11, 2012 1:10 pm

Elizabeth Warren had what by all accounts was a solid debate performance last night, punctuated by a pivotal moment where Warren ripped aside the moderate mask Scott Brown has been trying to wear this whole campaign. He tried to come across as a staunch defender of women’s rights, but Warren would have none of it, [...]

Scott Brown Worked as a Real Estate Attorney For Notorious Document Fraudster LPS

By: Friday September 28, 2012 7:10 am

I agree with Matt Latimer that the Massachusetts Senate race has taken an ugly turn into sideshow. Scott Brown, concerned about the prospect of losing, threw the kitchen sink at Elizabeth Warren in the first debate, and ever since then, the race has been dominated by anecdote, trivia and out-of-context finger-pointing. So I don’t want [...]

MA-Sen: Scott Brown Staffers Greet Elizabeth Warren With Tomahawk Chops and War Whoops

By: Tuesday September 25, 2012 10:21 am

I would guess there is no shortage of Massholes in the greater Boston area willing to smile smugly while delivering a tomahawk chop and the kind of war whoops you would hear on Saturday morning cartoons to make a “joke.” My question is why Scott Brown couldn’t find people not on his staff to do [...]

MA-Sen: Boston Mayor Menino Endorses Elizabeth Warren

By: Friday September 21, 2012 2:15 pm

I tweeted my commentary on last night’s Massachusetts Senate debate between Scott Brown and Elizabeth Warren in real time, so no need to go much further on it. Basically you saw an incumbent Senator clearly behind in his own internal polling, so he decided to go hard negative. Warren wasn’t flustered by it and played [...]

Reid Calls Out Scott Brown for Trying to Duck MA-Sen Debate With Elizabeth Warren Tonight

By: Thursday September 20, 2012 1:41 pm

There’s a debate scheduled tonight in Massachusetts between Sen. Scott Brown and Elizabeth Warren, in that hotly contested Senate race (C-SPAN will cover it at 7pm ET). But it may not have come off all, if you believe Harry Reid’s statement just now on the Senate floor. Here’s what Reid just said, in reaction to [...]

Inside a SuperPAC Fundraiser With Karl Rove

By: Friday August 31, 2012 9:44 am

Aside from the death threats to Todd Akin, the insider account of a Karl Rove fundraiser was enormously revealing. First of all, you get an eye into the Crossroads strategy, and since it promises to have $300 million behind it, it’s a heavy part of the strategy to recapture the White House: Then came the [...]

Akin Struggles to Hold On to US Senate Nomination in Missouri

By: Monday August 20, 2012 9:35 am

Todd Akin is clearly taking on water for his comments about abortion, pregnancy and rape, which actually reflected a fairly common viewpoint among the anti-choice movement that rarely gets mentioned outside their little cliques. But the question becomes whether he can survive and continue to stay on as the nominee for Senate in Missouri. Let’s [...]

MA-Sen: Warren Doubles Up Brown in Fundraising

By: Monday April 9, 2012 11:35 am

The one race in the country that may not get overrun by outside advertising this year is in Massachusetts, where Scott Brown and Elizabeth Warren have signed a “no outside ad” pledge in their Senate race. There’s no way that this will lead to a reduction in political spending on the race, however. In fact, [...]

Elizabeth Warren Assails Special AIG Tax Deal Allowing Company to Pay No Taxes on Profits

By: Monday March 12, 2012 10:15 am

Elizabeth Warren, running for Senate in Massachusetts, today called attention to a stealth bailout of AIG through special tax breaks created for them and other bailed-out companies. Warren joined a bipartisan group of her former colleagues on the Congressional Oversight Panel, the group that oversaw TARP, to assail the tax preferences for AIG, and demand [...]
