Truth or Consequences


Now that both political conventions have finally ended, the mudslinging and attacks should end and both candidates must start telling the truth in their White House race.

Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton and the Republican pick, Donald Trump should both outline what they are going to do for the US and how they will accomplish their individual tasks.

Hillary Clinton holds a rally with her chosen vice presidential nominee Tim Kaine in Philadelphia, where they’ll be joined by Bill Clinton later in Harrisburg, PA.



Hillary Clinton has broken the glass ceiling and it is now time for her to deliver the most important speech of her life.

For Clinton to deliver her victorious White House speech, she must improve her favorability ratings by reaching out to Bernie supporters, independents, and undecided voters.

This election is a referendum on the best of two unpleasant candidates, but she has the most favorable ratings.

Hillary has to focus on her sharp contrast with Donald Trump’s dark rhetoric and negative policies.



#ChasingPhilly tonight will be the final session of the Democratic National Convention. Hillary Clinton is expected to take the stage and tell American voters what she plans for US and how she will accomplish her goals.

On the heels of Wednesday's boost from many well known leaders, including VP Biden and President Obama, Hillary must continue to attract women, minority and young voters who are crucial to her victory some 100 days away.

There have been so many. Here are just a few... Pat Paulson, Lyndon LaRouche, and The Cat in the Hat?

#ChashingPhilly The Democratic National Convention completed their most important political business.

Hillary Clinton has made history or more appropriately herstory, and became the first US female presidential nominee from a major political party after the official roll call and Bernie's endorsement.

The convention's opening day was filled with drama despite the party's attempt to display unity. It apparently found its footing after Michelle Obama's take-down of the GOP nominee, followed by Bernie Sanders' forceful Clinton endorsement.
