I'm new to political blogging but have been writing most of my life about different things. I campaigned for President Clinton when he was just Governor Clinton in Orange County. I graduated from Smith College with a BA in English and a minor in Film. I work full time, have a lovely four year old daughter named Charlotte, my husband teaches full time at Cerritos College in Norwalk in the Music Department.

Our newest edition to the household is our Weimaraner Sophie.

Blackwater abandoned plans to build a…

Clinton’s Lead in Pennsylvania narrowing…

Of course the media is still going to run with the “double digit” win by Clinton even though it stands at 9.2 points as I type.  I guess that 10 just wasn’t so “solid”.  So the Pennsylvania finish is now clearly closer than was reported on election night, and it could end up even closer. The…
