The following essay is part of a series in which dozens of women will reveal what women they most admire. The series is part of “Women Rule,” a unique effort this fall by POLITICO, Google and The Tory Burch Foundation exploring how women are leading change in politics, policy and their communities.

Dear Donna Brazile:

I just wanted to bend your ear concerning the latest campaign drama with Sanders and that data breach. I truly hope that the DNC can see fit to harness the grassroots energy that Sanders brings to the debate, without alienating his voters ( a considerable share of the party). I also hope that the DNC realizes that we all ( Hillary, Sanders, and O'Malley supporters) rise and fall together as one party. 

Unfortunately, the mere perception that Chairwoman Wasserman is doing her best ( whether true or not, and she can help change that perception) to help Hillary at the expense of the other candidates, is not helping the Democratic Party's broader chances in the long run. 

There are millions of people ( young, old, black, white, rich and poor) who have donated time and resources to Bernie's campaign. For the most part, he has tried to keep the larger goal-- defeating the conservatives, and stayed above the fray--  not bashing Hillary Clinton and her supporters. 

In any case, I just wanted to point out ( and i certainly don't need to remind you) that there is much more than the individual candidates' fortunes that are at stake here. For my part, I have always said that I would support Hillary in the general, regardless of the fact, that I am supporting Bernie in the primary, but I must say the infighting and the perception of sabotage ( somewhat warranted, I am afraid) on the part of the Ms. Wasserman, is diverting energy away from our common goal, to say the least.

I hope that the DNC treads carefully here. Nothing less than our democracy is at stake.

Sincerely,
Ian Brand

In sharp contrast to the perception on the right that the press corps is in the tank for Democrats and Barack Obama, there has not been a single week this year when the president received more positiv...

My husband watched you this morning with tears in your eyes.  We agree totally.  See the letter I sent CNN below:

We watch CNN all the time.  CNN produces very thought provoking stories generally.  Don Lemon is a good talent.  However, I'm very surprised and disappointed seeing Mr. Lemon hold up a sign with the "N" word on it.  CNN and Don, what kind of sensationalist idiocy was that?  Not only is it offensive (because that word is rooted in hate and evil, and as a woman of color I find it appalling).  No matter who says it, black or white, it means the same thing.  In addition, if you want to use the "term of endearment reasoning" among blacks sometimes, I find that offensive and ignorant as well, but I'm well aware that that word is used in another "lighter" context.  Truthfully, I don't ever want to use a word used by racist people when addressing my black brothers and sisters.  We're a creative people, let's think of a new word.  That one means EXACTLY what it is.  Whites using it against blacks is enough!  A smart black anchor on TV trying to prove a point by holding up a sign using shocking visuals to provoke public interest only makes me stop watching CNN.  It was a very poor choice, cheap journalism, and hurtful.  CNN, this lack of objectivity by putting that word up pushed the emotional side, but lacked journalistic integrity.  Maybe you feel the need to do this for ratings or to be provocative.  Honestly, it devalues you.  Won't be watching

"If you're a Supreme Court justice, the American people have elevated you to one of the highest offices in the land out of the goodness of their heart and out of deference to your legal wisdom."

We, the amorphous masses, did not put them in their comfy chairs, politics did...that's the frustrating part.  We parse and pick at candidates every two years in fear of "selecting" a (P)resident who will, hopefully, select a candidate for the Bench that the Congress will (hopefully) approve.  We had little if nothing to do with this process...or it certainly feels that was, especially now that the Bench has ruled that corporations are people.
