It is a time of fear in the face of freedom, a time of an emptying country and swelling cities, a time for the widening of previous roads and the opening of new paths, yet a time when these paths are mined by knowing algorithms of the all-seeing eye. It is the time of the warrior's peace and the miser's charity, when the planting of a seed is an act of conscientious objection.

Time was, Kathleen Sebelius looked like a good future candidate for President of the United States. Now, to say that she is having political trouble is like saying that the Titanic got wet.
Are the critiques fair? Are the problems with ObamaCare / the Affordable Care Act really the fault of Kathleen Sebelius, or is [...]
Scott Conroy of Real Clear Politics says that Montana’s Democratic Governor, Brian Schweitzer, who was mentioned as a possible presidential candidate in 2012, would bring “a hefty dose of rural folksiness” to the 2016 presidential campaign.

“If a petition gathers enough online signatures, it will be reviewed by policy experts and you’ll receive an official response.” – Katelyn Sabochik, Deputy Director of the White House Office of Digital Strategy, September 22 2011
