GOP Connects with Women Voters Illustration by Greg Groesch/The Washington Times

Two prominent GOP groups recently issued a report, based on eight focus groups and a poll of 800 registered female voters, on the GOP 's "women" problem. As usual, media accounts zeroed in like a laser on the question of abortion, and here, despite many strong points, the report suggests a variant of the so-called truce strategy.

Gillibrand: I Couldn't Tell My Harasser 'To Go F*** Himself'

Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand said Monday that when a male labor leader harassed her about her weight several years ago after she'd had a baby, she had a few choice words she couldn't say at the time. "I've just had a baby, I've just been appointed [to replace Hillary Clinton in the Senate], I have a lot to learn, so much on my plate, and this man basically says to me, 'You're too fat to be elected statewide,'" Gillibrand recalled on HuffPost Live Monday morning.

Hurdles Ahead for Obamacare Signups

Don't expect a repeat of last year's website meltdown, but the new sign-up period could expose underlying problems with the law itself that are less easily fixed than a computer system. Getting those who signed up this year enrolled again for 2015 won't be as easy as it might seem.

Poll: Huckabee Clear Favorite in Iowa | Daniel Doherty

Two things are worth noting in the CNN/ORC survey released Friday vis-A -vis the 2016 presidential sweepstakes: Hillary Clinton, who is gearing up to head to the Hawkeye State as I write this , is leaps and bounds ahead of her fellow Democrats; and former Gov. Mike Huckabee is leading all of his presumed GOP rivals by double digits : According to a new CNN/ORC poll, 53% of all registered Democrats contacted in Iowa said they would support Hillary Clinton if the 2016 caucuses were held today. That number far outpaces the 15% that would opt for Vice President Joe Biden, 7% who would choose Sen. Elizabeth Warren and 5% who would pick Sen. Bernie Sanders.
