Presidential Campaign: It's the "Woman's Card" v. the "Man's Card" Hillary Clinton would be America's first woman president, and Donald Trump isn't hesitating to use that against her. He's told voters, "To be frank, if Hillary were a man I don't think she'd get 5% of the vote. All she has is playing the woman's card. And the beautiful thing is – women don't like her, OK?" The Clinton campaign says, bring it on — believing the so-called "Woman's Card" can only work in her favor. "If supporting healthcare for women, and equal pay… is playing the 'woman's card' then deal me in!" But research shows that playing the "Man's Card" could mean votes for Donald Trump. Do insults to women just come off the top of his head, or are they part of a calculated campaign strategy?
Will the march for science politicize objective research? Protesters are gathering all over the country for tomorrow's Earth Day March for Science. Since President Trump has proposed massive cuts in basic scientific research, will the movement be perceived as partisan politics — whether scientists themselves like it or not?
White House flip flops: NATO, Syria and China In less than 100 days, President Trump has contradicted himself on a host of foreign policy issues — Syria, NATO, China and Vladimir Putin’s Russia. Is it a strength — or a weakness — for the United States when the world of power politics never knows what to expect?
