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.

With the appointment of two new Supreme Court Justices and the imminent retirement of three or more…

I watched the New Hampshire returns and barely heard his name. I listened to NPR and even though he got 17% of the vote, he got 2 minutes out of 60…

Obama “I think Ronald Reagan changed the trajectory of America”

[youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XaoYD7iZG9w[/youtube]  I don’t want to present myself as some sort of singular figure.  I think part of what’s different are the times.  I do think that for example the 1980 was different.  I think Ronald Reagan changed the trajectory of America in a way that Richard Nixon did not and in a way that Bill…
