    Joe Biden makes the case for Republicans to consider Merrick Garland

    Vice President Joe Biden urged the Republican-controlled Senate to finally grant Supreme Court nominee Merrick Garland a confirmation hearing. Retired federal Judge Timothy Lewis joined Biden in the White House’s Weekly Address on Saturday to illustrate his argument that the Senate should put aside partisan politics to give Garland consideration. After all, Biden noted, Lewis was nominated to the bench by Republican President George H.W. Bush and confirmed by a Democratic Senate a month before the 1992 presidential election.

    This time, the woman is in charge — and the man is by her side

    In the summer of 1984, after all, kissing was all the talk at the Democratic National Convention, as strategists tied themselves in knots discussing how Walter Mondale and Geraldine Ferraro — the first co-ed presidential ticket in history — should interact. Instead, the power of the moment was how awkward it wasn’t.  Two politicians stood on a stage, hands clasped and raised, and two things were true: a) that the woman was the lead candidate, the man her second, and b) it looked perfectly normal.

    America, Tim Kaine loves your dad jokes

    America, Tim Kaine has heard your dad jokes, and he thinks they’re funny. The Virginia senator made his campaign debut last weekend at a Miami rally where Hillary Clinton officially named him as her running mate. Based on the stream of jokes that flooded Twitter Wednesday night, one of the biggest takeaways from Kaine’s DNC speech was that Clinton’s running mate is really just a sweet suburban dad.

    Clinton rises to history in the newspapers on final day of the DNC

    Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton cast herself as a steady leader at a “moment of reckoning” for America on Thursday night, contrasting her character with what she described as the dangerous and volatile Donald Trump. In the biggest speech of her quarter century in politics, Clinton accepted the nomination for the Nov. 8 election with a promise to make the United States a country that works for everyone. “We are clear-eyed about what our country is up against. But we are not afraid,” she said.

    Clinton to Trump: You don’t represent the real America. I do.

    When Hillary Clinton stepped to the podium on the final night of the 2016 Democratic National Convention to accept her party’s nomination for president, she attempted to do something that Democrats have rarely, if ever, succeeded in doing. “Here’s the sad truth: There is no other Donald Trump,” Clinton said. Thanks to Donald Trump — and his dark, in many ways un-Republican vision of America — she may actually pull it off.

    ‘Do all the good’: The Methodist saying that became a Clinton campaign slogan

    Television viewers who watched day two of the Democratic National Convention may have noticed signs with the words “Do All the Good” blanketing the crowd in the Wells Fargo Center. Like many Methodist kids, Clinton would have been taught the famous saying in church. Methodists usually attribute the words to John Wesley, one of the 18th century founders of the denomination, although as with the many apocryphal sayings of St. Francis, there’s no evidence that Wesley ever said or wrote the words.

    Hillary Clinton accepted her party’s nomination Thursday night in a sweeping speech in which she promised to be a president for all Americans and presented a liberal agenda influenced by the ideas of Sen. Bernie Sanders’ supporters. Clinton also painted her Republican rival, Donald Trump, as a hotheaded, divisive figure who cannot be trusted as commander in chief. “He wants us to fear the future and fear each other,” Clinton said of Trump.

    Chelsea Clinton’s purpose was to make that possibility more likely, and to soften the image of a mother who many voters say they see as brittle, to paint a warmer portrait of a woman many voters say they do not like. “My earliest memory is my mom picking me up after I’d fallen down, giving me a big hug and reading me ‘Goodnight Moon’,” Chelsea said. Chelsea Clinton, embraces her mother, Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton, during the final day of the Democratic National Convention.

    General Allen’s call to duty: Saluting Hillary Clinton

    Hillary Clinton on Thursday received the strong endorsement of retired Marine Corps Gen. John Allen, who commanded the war in Afghanistan and more recently was President Obama’s special envoy to the Global Coalition to Counter ISIL. Flanked by a wall of retired flag officers from all of the military’s services and younger veterans of the wars of 9/11, the martial display served as a kind of protective armor for a presidential candidate whom Republican nominee Donald Trump has savaged as weak and feckless on national security. “We stand before you tonight to endorse Hillary Clinton for president of the United States of America,” Allen said of Clinton, who will claim the Democratic nomination later Thursday night.

    The presidential campaign of Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders made an appeal to its supporters on Thursday, urging them not to disrupt Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton’s Democratic National Convention speech. Sanders’ campaign sent a pair of text messages to its delegates at 8:40 p.m. asking them to “respect” Clinton’s speech, which is set to take place within the next few hours. “On Monday, when Bernie gave his speech to the Democratic convention, Secretary Clinton’s campaign asked her supporters to be respectful, and they were,” the messages said.

    Cory Booker on sexism and Hillary Clinton’s rise: People don’t call men ‘shrill’

    Hillary Clinton has overcome many obstacles on her groundbreaking path to become the first woman presidential nominee for a major party, and sexism was certainly one of them, New Jersey Sen. Cory Booker said Thursday night in an interview with Yahoo News. Chatting with Yahoo Global News Anchor Katie Couric at the Democratic National Convention, Booker cited descriptions of Clinton’s hard-charging personality as “shrill” among the subtle ways gender bias has been woven into the critiques against her over the years. “There’s a different standard applied to women than is applied to men,” Booker said in a live interview with Couric and Yahoo News National Political Columnist Matt Bai.

    FBI warned Clinton campaign last spring of cyberattack

    The FBI warned the Clinton campaign that it was a target of a cyberattack last March, just weeks before the Democratic National Committee discovered it had been penetrated by hackers it now believes were working for Russian intelligence, two sources who have been briefed on the matter told Yahoo News. In a meeting with senior officials at the campaign’s Brooklyn headquarters, FBI agents laid out concerns that cyberhackers had used so-called spear-phishing emails as part of an attempt to penetrate the campaign’s computers, the sources said. One of the sources said agents conducting a national security investigation asked the Clinton campaign to turn over internal computer logs as well as the personal email addresses of senior campaign officials.

    Clinton, like Trump, makes play for voters of the opposite party

    On the night that Hillary Clinton accepted the Democratic nomination for president, her party featured two Republican speakers who talked about their intent to vote for Clinton this fall against Republican nominee Donald Trump. A former White House aide to Ronald Reagan, Doug Elmets, and a health policy worker at the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, Jennifer Pierotti Lim, both told the convention hall of Democrats and a primetime national TV audience why they’re voting for Clinton. Elmets said it was “a shock” to be speaking at the Democratic convention, but argued that Trump falls so far short of what’s required to be president that he felt duty bound to oppose him and support Clinton.

    Women’s “potty parity,” menstrual product availability, and bathroom-of-choice access for trans individuals have emerged as topics of legislative concern within the Democratic Party in recent years. None of the giant bathrooms in the sports arena that I checked — neither female nor all gender — stocked feminine hygiene products.

    Rep. Tammy Duckworth, D-Ill., who lost her legs as an Army helicopter pilot in Iraq, delivered a pointed critique of Donald Trump on Thursday at the Democratic National Convention. The Democratic Senate candidate began her address by recounting the 2004 attack that wounded her. “Twelve years ago, I was co-piloting a Black Hawk helicopter over Iraq,” she recalled.
