Joe Biden is now living in the world of accusation he helped to create. It is one of peril for the accused, in which they are subjected to expansive definitions of sexual misconduct and little benefit of the doubt. Biden helped to bring it about as the leader of the Obama administration’s cornerstone effort to end sexual assault at colleges and universities, a worthy undertaking that quickly spiraled into overreach. The goal, as Biden often says, was to remake sexual culture on campuses and in society at large—a goal that’s reached remarkable fruition in the #MeToo era. Now, as he mulls whether to enter the presidential race, Biden is finding himself ensnared by some of the doctrines he has advocated over the past several years. In the past few days, Biden’s not-yet candidacy has been rocked by accusations of unwanted touching. Last week, Lucy Flores, a former Democratic candidate for lieutenant governor of Nevada, said that at a campaign rally in 2014, the … [Read more...] about Joe Biden Created the Culture He Is a Target Of

The Democratic Party has not nominated a white man for the presidency since John Kerry in 2004, and its nonwhite, non-male candidates have done pretty well for themselves—maybe even outperforming their white male predecessors. Barack Obama won two terms with more than 50 percent of the vote, the first Democrat to do so since Franklin D. Roosevelt. And Hillary Clinton, even though she fell short in the Electoral College, received 3 million more votes than her white male opponent. Yet Michael Avenatti, who is exploring a presidential run of his own, told Time magazine in a recent interview that only a white man could beat President Donald Trump in 2020, “because of where the electorate lines up and where Trump’s strengths lie,” though he also stressed that “it shouldn’t be that way” in an ideal world.

Let’s just say it’s not your typical visit with a politician, with her doing the driving and no staffers or handlers around. But then, Tlaib (pronounced tah-LEEB), a 42-year-old social justice lawyer, activist and former state representative, is not your everyday office-seeker. A couple of hours before, the divorced mother of two young boys rushed into her office in the Cass Corridor after Eid al-Adha prayers at the Islamic Center of Detroit on Tireman, late for a meeting, … [Read more...] about Rashida Tlaib set to make history as Detroit’s congresswoman
