Working on a campaign and running for president should be a visceral, emotional, passionate, and intense experience.
I don't think I suffer from Trump derangement syndrome in a sense that I can separate the man from the White House.
Every day of my life, I come against a conservative who wants me to shut up. I do believe I'm right and they are wrong.
I really try every day. I really try to come into work thinking about what rhetoric I'm going to put out in the world and what my father would've done if he was still here.
I was raised in an open-minded home. I was raised a Christian, but I was raised open-minded Christian -- one to accept people, love people, not pass judgment.
I hate to rain on anyone's parade or burst the enthusiasm bubble, but talk is especially cheap during an election season.
President Obama is a poker player, which the media used as part of the narrative that he was more calculated and careful as a politician.
I do believe that unless we start reaching out to minorities and women and honestly start supporting the LGBT community, there is no more future for the Republican party.
There are people I know who love President Trump and think that he's the greatest thing that's ever happened to America. I understand those people. I'm not shocked by them. I defend their right to love him. But I do think character and rhetoric matter.
Hell would freeze over before I would do a reality show. I've been offered everything you could possibly imagine, and it just doesn't interest me. You certainly won't see me dancing on TV.
Ashlee Simpson kicking her dressing room door after getting caught lip-synching -- that was interesting to watch.
Aside from the likability factor, I can criticize Hillary's politics all day long, but I never question her intelligence. I have never doubted that she is a strong, capable, smart leader.
I care more about my economy, national security, and fiscal conservatism than I do about what other women do with their bodies. It's not my place, and I don't believe it's the government's place, to make such decisions.
My father loves Las Vegas, and he loves to play craps. Growing up, I'd find old Caesars Palace chips in his pocket that he forgot to cash out.
I am often invited to speak at colleges, and whenever I do Q and A's, a question that inevitably comes up is, 'How do you put up with the blogosphere?' It's a valid question, and I don't really know what answer to give. The truth is that I don't know what to do.
I spend a lot of time dancing in gay bars and want my gay friends to be able to get married, but I don't know if I ever want to get married and have kids. And I think that's a common struggle.
I love Las Vegas in a way separate from my love of any other American city. For me, growing up, it was a town of many firsts and where I enjoy a level of anonymity.
I grew up in a border state. I think immigration is an essential part of American history and American culture.
My experience is authenticity and honesty always works best with people my age and younger, and even older. Millennials specifically really respond to keeping it real about your opinions.
Some fathers raise their daughters to be seen and not heard; they raise their daughters not to speak out. Raise strong women!
I do consider myself a postfeminist. I just want women to have choices -- they can be CEOs of Fortune 500 companies, or they can be stay-at-home mothers and raise their kids as a job.
My father's passing comes with sorrow and grief for me, for my mother, for my brothers, and for my sisters. He was a great fire who burned bright, and we lived in his light and warmth for so very long.
My dad's about character and bipartisanship and something greater than yourself and believing in this country and believing in the fact that we as Americans can still come together, and that's something I grew up in and feeds me every day.
What do I predict with the HBO 'Game Change' movie? I expect my family and Sarah Palin to be nothing short of crucified.
I don't fit into the traditional Republican box that the wingnuts who have hijacked my party think all Republicans should.
Twitter is the most impulsive form of social media, but it's still the most celebrated among politicians and pundits within the Beltway, which is curious, since it can destroy any sense of privacy.
When I'm 100 years old, if I make it that long, when I die, probably the first tag line will be John McCain's daughter, and I'm so proud of him and proud of my family's legacy and our life, so I don't have a problem with it.
I want to say that since my dad has been diagnosed, I really feel like I understand the meaning of life, and it is not how you die: it is how you live.
You're nobody unless you have a gay rumor about you. I've been hit on by women from time to time, and it might simplify my life if I were gay, but no.
'Game Change,' the infamous bestseller written by John Heilemann and Mark Halperin, has plagued anyone directly associated with the 2008 election cycle.
The infamous political ads like Carly Fiorina's 'Demon Sheep' and Christine O'Donnell's 'I Am Not a Witch' are so confusing, it's almost like they were paid for by Democrats.
I was with my father at his end, as he was with me at my beginning. In the thirty-three years we shared together, he raised me, taught me, corrected me, comforted me, encouraged me, and supported me in all things.
It's because of women like my grandmother Roberta -- women who have lived their lives fearlessly, on their own terms -- that I am who I am. I'm grateful to have such an inspiring woman as a grandmother.
Whatever historical or ideological relevance the Iowa caucus has will more than likely not get you to the White House, but it will probably get you a sweet gig at Fox News.
As a general rule, I wouldn't put anything in a text or e-mail or on social media that I wouldn't want the whole world to see.
I am a person of great faith and idealism and have been in too many situations too many times to become an eternal pessimist regarding politics.
I worked in cable news for a long time, but I'm not a pundit. I'm just not. I'm grateful to people that are, but I was really miserable trying to do that. I just wanted to be myself.
I am pro-life, but because life is complicated, that choice is between a woman and her idea of a higher power.
My generation grew up in the heyday of the '90s, with the Internet boom and the birth of overnight millionaires. But our politicians seem to be pushing personal agendas over the idea of making the world a better place for their children.
As I watched on TV the nest of reporters and groupies surround Palin at the Iowa State Fair, I couldn't help but sit back and wonder if she's become the ultimate party crasher for the Republican Party.
I know what kind of books I read on vacation, and it is not necessarily 'Diplomacy' by Henry Kissinger. No disrespect to that book; I have read that book. But not on spring break.
I'm the daughter of one of the most long-standing senators in politics, and I have been given every opportunity that anyone could possibly dream of. I was given those opportunities as a result of the hard work from both sides of my family.
If you're a public figure, and if you're working in the White House, you should expect everything you're saying in any context to be leaked.
The right-wing conservatives are so entitled in their snobbery that no one is ever good enough for them, so the rest of us, especially moderates, must suffer.
There are only a handful of politicians who are truly great on Twitter -- the rest rely on their account to release press releases.
Mary Matalin and James Carville have given me more hope when it comes to love and relationships than any romance book or chick flick ever.
I'm a nonstop extrovert, a people person who loves mingling and gabbing and getting out in the world.
I'm friends with people that probably would describe themselves as socialists and people that are much more conservative than I am. I can always find a middle ground.
To be completely honest, I don't believe that Palin has any intention of actually running for president. Granted, trying to predict Sarah Palin's next move is like trying to nail Jell-O to the wall.
I'm so thankful to Fox News for the chance to be on 'Outnumbered,' but I'm leaving to focus on other things. I have no doubt the show will continue to do well and wish all my friends and colleagues at the network nothing but success.
This should be the message of Occupy Wall Street: We just want a chance; our government needs to give us a chance.
Much like the Tea Party, Occupy Wall Street's message has gotten wrapped up in stereotypes. The Tea Party was weighed down by the birther movement, and Occupy Wall Street has gotten looped in with hippie culture.
People expect me to live in a picture-perfect Pottery Barn kind of place, but I don't like anything traditional.
The idea of the celebrity politician is nothing new, and depending on one's perspective, either President Obama or Sarah Palin are the country's first celebrity politicians.
President Obama makes fantastic stump speeches, but putting together an actual agenda is more complicated.
And on a completely different note I will NOT in fact be sharing my bra size, that was a very sleepy tweet last night but I ain't no an A cup.
My favorite thing about my grandmother is her lust for life and how much she has shown me about living every day to the fullest. To say my grandmother has paved the way for me and so many women out there like me is an understatement.
The anger from Occupy Wall Street is coming from this simple fact: America no longer seems to be a place where you can work your way up, from rags to riches, from lower class to middle class to upper class.
Washington is a complete mess. It's become a venue for partisan bickering, where the needs of the working class just don't matter.
When I was a little girl, and we would visit my grandmother whenever we were in D.C., she would always greet us at the door in elegant suits or gowns with matching pearls and earrings.
