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

    Hillary Clinton has overcome many obstacles on her ground-breaking path to becoming 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.

    Sanders campaign asks supporters to not disrupt Clinton DNC speech ‘as a courtesy to Bernie’

    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.

    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.

    Democratic U.S. presidential candidate Hillary Clinton speaks at a campaign rally in Columbus, Ohio, on June 21, 2016. 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.

    A female nominee breaks ground, but good luck finding a tampon at the DNC

    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. As for the external porta potties and mobile bathroom trailers, some don’t even having working lights or water to flush with, let alone necessities for women with “blood coming out of [their] wherever,” as Donald Trump so memorably put it.

    Hillary opens the ultimate door for women, but some are still left behind

    President Obama and Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton acknowledge the crowd at the Democratic National Convention on Wednesday. Hillary Clinton is the first woman major-party presidential nominee. On Friday, women will still constitute less than 20 percent of all members of Congress, and Hillary Clinton’s historic achievement doesn’t change the persistence of gender inequality in 21st century American politics.

    A senior U.S. intelligence official said the briefings would not occur until Democrats wrap up the business of nominating Hillary Clinton, but would not set a precise date. When they happen, they’ll take place at a secure facility, likely with a team of senior intelligence community analysts, on one day or over a few days if a candidate wants to delve deeply into one topic. It’ll be a one-off review of major national security concerns — unlike the president, they won’t get daily briefings through the election.

Peter Sokolowski, editor at large of Merriam-Webster, pointed out that there are many reasons to look up a word in the dictionary other than learning its meaning, whether it’s double-checking the spelling, reading about its etymology or something else. Biden has said “malarkey” many times throughout his political career dating back to at least 1983.

    Hillary Clinton’s convention message: Trust me

    One word has been repeated again and again from the stage of the Democratic National Convention this week: trust. Dozens of speakers have vouched for the trustworthiness and honesty of Hillary Clinton — from a man with a rare form of dwarfism who said Clinton has corresponded with him for years, to a 9/11 survivor who spoke of the former New York senator’s devotion to her recovery, to Clinton’s running mate, Sen. Tim Kaine, who said Wednesday that he trusted her with his U.S. Marine son’s life. This focus on trust is aimed squarely at a worrisome statistic for the Clinton campaign.

    Tim Kaine kicked off his Wednesday night Democratic National Convention speech as any well-meaning family man might — by thanking his wife and children. According to Twitter, at least, Kaine’s father-figure brand stuck around throughout his speech — and long after it finished — as viewers at home flooded social media with suburban dad jokes about Hillary Clinton’s vice presidential pick. Before Clinton tapped the Virginia senator and former governor to be her running mate, he was not particularly well-known to the general public.
