The Real Reason Elizabeth Holmes Always Wears Dark Eye Makeup

Elizabeth Holmes' face is everywhere right now: on the front page of newspapers, in tabloids, shown alongside press coverage of the two documentaries and full-length biopic that will soon make the now-disgraced Theranos founder even more inescapable.When someone is dominating the news cycle to the extent that Holmes is right now, it's hard not to take a closer look at the way they style themselves for public consumption. In Holmes' case, that means black turtlenecks, dyed blonde hair, and a Fre...

In Fundraising Email, Sanders Calls O’Rourke’s First-Day Haul ‘Bad News’

Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) broke with the general friendliness that has characterized how the 2020 Democratic contenders have spoken about each other so far, sending out a fundraising blast where he calls Beto O’Rourke’s $6.1 million first-day haul “bad news.” The subject line reads: “Bad news: Beto outraised us. Good news: we probably had a lot more donations.” “Here is the truth: this morning, Beto O’Rourke announced that he raised more money than us on the first day of his presidential cam...

True O’Rourke-mentum?

I don’t know how many of you saw it. But over the weekend Beto O’Rourke got asked about his first day fundraising haul and said something to effect that he declined to give exact numbers. That certainly made it sound like he’d come up significantly short. Hard to see how this wasn’t a clever way to lower expectations ahead of today’s eye-popping announcement. He raised more than any other Democratic presidential candidate on their first day, which is certainly impressive. O’Rourke was ahead Sa...

Poli Sci Celeb Reader Email

In response to this post of mine on Beto O’Rourke from March 14th, Marc Hetherington wrote this response. Hetherington and Jonathan Weiler are the authors of this ground-breaking study, Authoritarianism and Polarization in American Politics. You might not be thinking about Beto’s potential base of support the right way. Those of us who follow politics closely always tend to think about the world in terms of ideology. But decades of research in political science suggests that most Americans do...

Everybody beats Trump in Wisconsin, according to a new Emerson poll — everybody except Amy Klobuchar and — gasp! — Kamala Harris.

Here's how it looks at Real Clear Politics (click image to enlarge and clarify):Klobuchar only gets a tie. Okay. But Harris?! All those others best Trump but Kamala Harris — who I've been made to feel is the most likely candidate — only ties?!When the Democratic candidates are pitted against each other, Sanders and Biden are way out ahead, with 39% and 24%, respectively. Harris lags miserably at 5%. [Author: [email protected] (Ann Althouse)]

Warren Stands Behind Wonky Campaign Despite Lackluster Fundraising

BOSTON (AP) — Elizabeth Warren has spent much of the last decade as a leader of the Democratic Party’s liberal wing. But three and a half months into her presidential campaign, the Massachusetts senator is facing tough questions about fundraising and electability, along with lingering skepticism about her past claim to Native American identity. The longtime liberal superstar is embracing an uncomfortable role in the crowded 2020 contest: the underdog. “This is the race I want to run,” Warren ...

Beto O’Rourke is 46. Bernie Sanders is 77. Does Age Matter Anymore for Democrats?

Democrats have won the presidency with younger nominees like Obama, Clinton and Kennedy. But age may be relative in 2020, with many younger voters preferring the septuagenarian Mr. Sanders.

Bernie Sanders Cuts His Head While Campaigning In South Carolina

WASHINGTON (AP) — Bernie Sanders’ presidential campaign says the Vermont senator has been treated at a walk-in clinic for a minor injury while campaigning in South Carolina. Campaign spokesman Arianna Jones told reporters that Sanders cut his head on the edge of a glass shower door Friday and went to a walk-in clinic.

Jane Sanders’ Think Tank Is Shutting Down To Avoid ‘Appearance Of Impropriety’

CONCORD, N.H. (AP) — The Sanders Institute, a think tank founded by Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders’ wife and son, is shutting down, at least for now, amid criticism that the nonprofit has blurred the lines between family, fundraising and campaigning. The Vermont-based institute has stopped accepting donations and plans to suspend all operations by the end of May “so there could not even be an appearance of impropriety,” Jane Sanders told The Associated Press.

A Bad Day for Beto

This was Beto O’Rourke’s big day. But I think it went pretty badly for him, though perhaps not in ways that will be immediately obvious. This may sound odd since he got some good press, got the ritual insult from the President and landed a number of endorsements right out of the gate. But it’s the endorsements themselves that suggest a problem. Right out of the gate O’Rourke won the endorsement Kathleen Rice, the Long Island Rep most recently notable for leading the Moultonite faction which tri...

You Won't Believe How Much Elizabeth Holmes Has Changed

Once upon a time, Elizabeth Holmes was America's youngest self-made female billionaire and the head of biotech company Theranos, which promised new blood-testing procedures that would revolutionize health care. But, beginning in 2015, the cracks in Holmes' tech empire and veneer of prestige started to show, with reports trickling out that the level of technology she championed was "exaggerated" at best. In 2018, Holmes was formally indicted on charges of fraud, and now faces upwards of 20 years...

"Beto O’Rourke, the 46-year-old former Texas congressman whose near-miss Senate run last year propelled him to Democratic stardom, announced on Thursday that he was running for president, betting that voters will prize his message of national unity and generational change in a 2020 primary teeming with committed progressives. His decision jolts an early election season already stuffed with contenders, adding to the mix a relentless campaigner with a small-dollar fund-raising army, the performati...

Bernie Sanders Boosts Foreign Policy Cred For 2020 With Yemen Vote Win

Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) scored a major victory on Thursday when the Senate passed his resolution to end U.S. involvement in the Yemen civil war — one that could help his 2020 prospects. The Senate passed a resolution to defund America’s support for the Saudi-led efforts in the humanitarian disaster, a rare bipartisan rebuke to President Trump’s cozy relationship with Saudi Arabia. Sanders has led on this issue for years, working closely with Sens. Mike Lee (R-UT) and Chris Murphy (D-CT) to ...

Senate Rebukes Trump Over Saudi War In Yemen

The resolution passed by 54-46 with bipartisan support, the culmination of a years-long effort led by Sens. Bernie Sanders (D-VT), Mike Lee (R-UT) and Chris Murphy (D-CT) to claw back Congress’s constitutional war powers and end American support for a humanitarian disaster in Yemen. “Today, we in the S...
