Fellow commentator Benjamin Dixon weighs in on the 2016 primary season as we enter the second half.

Our friend Amy Simon, cultural HERstorian at She's History brings us this fabulous guest post It's Women's History Month! Allow me to enlighten, highlight, celebrate and honor a few - just a few - utterly fabulous females who - in 2015 - heroically inspired, educated, entertained, motivated and ultimately empower US to follow their lead. **DISCLAIMER: No way I could cover ALL the fabulous females!

I offer for your comparison the two TV talkers pictured above. On the left, we have Jon Stewart, the unlikely champion of disseminating news and information to the masses in the most accessible way possible! On the right, a blowhard propagandist on the cable network bought and paid for by the Republican Party who wouldn't know a fact if it bit him on the ass. Last night, we heard the news that Jon Stewart would be taking a 12-week hiatus from The Daily Show this summer to direct his first film... and it's not a comedy! To understand the story [...]
We are women, hear us roar. But not in the history books that have likely been written by men. March is Women's History Month! We have a month, but we still don't have an equal rights amendment. All the great things that women have done to move our nation forward is rarely reported or taught. Until now, that is. My friend Amy Simon calls herself a "cultural HERstorian." She's been obsessed with the lack of attention paid to the role women have played throughout our nation's history, and decided to do something about it. The result is now a one [...]
For once, I didn't think "Flori-DUH". Today, I was actually proud of a couple of our elected officials. First, kudos to Senator Bill Nelson (something I never imagined I'd write on this blog!) for being the 41st Senator to state publicly that he'd back the public insurance option as part of a health care bill moved through reconciliation. He told Huffington Post's Ryan Grim that today, and Ryan told us all about it on tonight's show! I also spoke with Ryan about the other member of Florida's Congressional delegation of whom I'm especially proud this evening, Alan Grayson, who today [...]
