Presidential Campaign 2008: Is Bill Clinton forgetting that he is part of the family?

By Paul Edward Hamilton

For much of their political careers, the Clintons have been able to expect and indeed count on the unwavering political and economic support of the African American community during their numerous campaigns for elected office.

Human Rights Agency stands ready to help

Human Rights Agency stands ready to help

Velma Korbel, Commissioner, Minnesota Department of Human Rights

It is difficult to respond to the facts in "State Cripples Human Rights Agency," (Insight, Jan. 28) because few facts are offered to support the contention that the Minnesota Department of Human Rights is somehow gasping on life support.

WHY WE NEED A NEGRO PRESIDENT IN 1980

WHY WE NEED A NEGRO PRESIDENT IN 1980

From Look Magazine, May 1970

I ran for mayor of New York City a few years ago, and the headline in the New York Herald Tribune the day after I introduced my running mates was: "Buckley Has A Balanced Ticket: Markey, Mrs. Gunning -- All Irish." The professionals rocked with mirth when I subsequently announced that I hadn't known that Mrs. Rosemary Gunning was Irish, and hadn't even known that she was Catholic.

Haters for Hillary!

Haters for Hillary!

By Semeen Reskhem

So what are Hillary's supporters saying to all those murdered Iraqis' children and their suffering heirs? How will the rest of the world see Americans if we elect the woman who voted for war when we had a brother who had the insight to vote against the war?

What kind of person would think Bush more convincing than Barack?

Obama for America

By Ken Lawrence

We are quickly approaching the Minnesota Caucuses. The choices are narrowing. I believe that we are seeing that, at least among Republicans, there is a frontrunner. Sen. McCain is a man who the public perceives as a man of integrity who is willing to work, even across party lines, to get things done for the American people. Among Democrats a front runner is not yet clear. I hope that as Minnesotans go to the polls they see that if we are to confront the future united as Americans then there is only one clear choice for President - Sen. Barack Obama.

Attitude decides your altitude

Attitude decides your altitude

By Dwight Hobbes

It's one of those things that are heartwarming even while it's heartbreaking. I'm on the bus, watching this lovely young lady and her baby. The lady, actually, is a teenager. Between 16 and, well, let's just say that if she was much beyond 17-years-old that would be pushing it. And the child, maybe three-years-old, tops. She's clean and well-dressed; and so is her baby. She looks at me and I stop staring, fishing in my shoulder bag to go through my mail.
