Almost two years ago, I wrote about my hopes for a challenger to Hillary in the Democratic primary. Like many, I’d been frustrated by what I saw as a lack of consistency and commitment to progressive values. So I’ve been open to criticism of her record, and attempts to nudge her in a better direction. Fast forward 23…
Last week during the DNC, I ran into an influential Democratic operative whom I know and respect a great deal. We joked around a bit, and after ribbing me for being critical of Hillary Clinton, he told me to “keep propping up Donald Trump.”
Cartoonist Jen Sorensen sketches some scenes from the 2016 Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia.
Hillary Clinton's Democratic National Convention focused heavily on many issues that are central to women: Abortion, women's health, family and parental leave and, of course, nominating a woman for president.
Throughout the Republican and Democratic presidential conventions, one through-line began to reveal itself. It wasn't a recurring phrase or motif, but rather a string of kick-ass tunes. Both convention halls entertained their attendees and marathon-session watchers at home with house bands as well as DJs. It was a…

Khizr Khan isn't a politician. He's a Muslim immigrant whose son died while serving in the U.S. military. He had a message for Donald Trump during an address Thursday night at the Democratic National Convention.
Donald Trump has not been enjoying the Democratic National Convention so far.
Can you believe it? The fourth and final night of the 2016 Democratic National Convention is already upon us. Tonight in Philadelphia, Hillary Clinton will accept her party's nomination for president of the United States, but I'm not ready to say goodbye to this crazy bunch of crazy kids just yet.
