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. Gary has a Ph.D in Ethnomusicology from UCI. I hope to go back to school in some form or another, maybe sociology or economics. I've even thought of Law school. Our newest edition to the household is our Weimaraner Sophie.

Clinton, “Taking Obama at his word”.

Why isn’t that great, Clinton is going to take Obama’s word for it, you know, she’s going to trust that he’s being honest when denying he’s muslim.  Of course the first part of this has to do with the fact that it’s not a smear, others have pointed this out.  But it’s not about that,…

The Governator sees the light, sort of…

Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger has admitted that maybe it’s time to repeal some of those tax breaks since our budget is looking at an 8 billion dollar deficit. Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger told business leaders Thursday he supports a proposal by nonpartisan Legislative Analyst Elizabeth Hill to rescind $2.7 billion in tax credits, but he later softened…
