The Obama administration has moved broadly to block discrimination against trans people. An unusual concern: Advocates wish the president and others would match their deeds with words.
All of the stuff I noticed while I was at the DNC in Charlotte.
While appearing on MSNBC, The Nation’s Jeremy Scahill strongly criticized cable-news coverage of the DNC regarding Obama’s foreign policy record. Scahill was particularly captious about MSNBC itself, whose coverage he compared to watching an “Obama For America meet-up.”
Obama has almost twice as many mentions as Romney. Romney beat One Direction; Lil Wayne beat Biden.
The Democratic Party used the Democratic National Convention in Charlotte this week to make a nearly-united statement on LGBT issues, including marriage and military service. There was one dissenter, and he led the gathering’s closing prayer.
Politicians, media figures and celebrities in their natural habitat…a political convention. I shot some candid (ie, terrible) photos of the famous and the powerful at the Democratic National Convention in Charlotte.
Democrat convention-goers answer the question: Everyone from the Nun on the Bus to Tulsi Gabbard.
Democrats affixed stuffed animal donkeys and Obama bobbleheads to their hats at the convention.
An emphasis on the path forward. Lukewarm reception to his speech from pundits doesn’t make the headlines.
Hollywood swarmed the DNC. But not Jon Voight! Remember, he was at the RNC .
