Big news today: Hillary Clinton has rolled out a new web site. Many people say this signifies the beginning of her 2016 run. Plus, her old web site, HillaryClinton.com, offers a link to the new website “to reach the Office of Hillary Clinton,” which is creating further speculation.

President Obamaâs Disappointing Record On Hiring Women

The first action Barack Obama took as president was to sign the Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act, which extends the legal rights of women who have experienced pay discrimination on the job. It’s something he mentions often, as he has cultivated a reputation as a female-friendly president. To be fair, it wasn’t that hard to do when the other guy was Mitt “Binders Full of Women” Romney. But as the New York Times reports today, his inner circle is currently almost 100% male. More »
