COMMENTARY: This Girl's On Fiiireee!
By Dolores Prida | 11/06/2012 - 11:06

I haven't called myself a "girl" in a long time, but I'm so fired up about today's presidential election that I can't help singing along with Alicia Keys.

Most of all, I can't stop thinking about the girls on fire of a century ago--the suffragists, those women with plenty of ovarios who marched, got beaten, harassed, thrown in jail for daring to demand that women be allowed to vote.

How to deal with friend Israel or foe Iran, trade with an emboldened China, and troop withdrawals from Afghanistan are some of the issues where their differences emerged. Both men threw in some domestic issues in the last debate devoted to foreign policy, full well knowing that most Americans are more focused on the economy at home than China’s.

Election 2012 Presidential Debates: Obama and Romney Re-Match
By Viviana Hurtado | 10/17/2012 - 15:00

This was the debate between the two men vying to be President Americans were waiting for. President Barack Obama and Governor Mitt Romney sparred on domestic and foreign policy, at times interrupting and talking over each other, hurling accusations of their alleged respective failures and even getting in each other’s faces. Moderator Candy Crowley from CNN acted much like an older sister letting younger brothers resolve their differences, but heading off a fight with firm “if I could have you sit down!”
