We finally made it to the end of this endless election season. At 11pm ET tonight, I expect to hear that Hillary Clinton has been elected president in the biggest blowout in history.

There's still that little voice saying that people are fucking nuts, and that anything is still possible. As my stomach churns! It's Tuesday, so GottaLaff hung out with me, and [...]

November 4. It's my birthday, and one for which I am incredibly grateful. I was diagnosed with and appear to have kicked cancer during my 56th year.

November 4, 2008, Barack Obama - our first African American president - was elected on my 49th birthday. Today I turn 47 and in a few days, [...]

Today, New Hampshire heads to the polls as the first in the nation primary day has arrived. Nicole checks in with Huffington Post's Zach Carter as the voting begins. Then two volunteers who Feel the Bern explain what they've been doing to help. In hour two, The Gliberal Goddesses reconvene - Amy Simon, GottaLaff & Nicole - and Amy isn't happy about Nicole designating Gloria Steinem as yesterday's "world's biggest asshole!"
With some help from John Oliver, Nicole Sandler notes that tomorrow is election day, with races that could be more important than next year's. Media strategist and trainer Joel Silberman guests in hour 1. Gaius Publius joins in hour 2 to talk death penalty, social security and other light topics for a Monday morning!
Today's the day that the House of Representatives will vote on Trade Promotion Authority, better known as Fast Track. It all comes down to this! We'll keep an eye on the vote and break in to see what our elected representatives do as it happens, and chat with Democracy for America chair Jim Dean about the letter they sent to members of Congress this morning, urging a NO vote. Our resident Republican, John LeBoutilliler, weighs in on some of the GOP presidential hopefuls. And for Flashback Friday, it's my rare interview with New Radicals' Gregg Alexander from May of 1999.
