Hillary Clinton has never been asked whether she verbally intimidated alleged rape survivor Juanita Broaddrick. Nor has Clinton been asked whether she spearheaded the so-called "nuts and sluts" strategy to silence and intimidate women who alleged affairs with or sexual abuse by Bill Clinton.
Ever since Juan Francisco Lopez-Sanchez shot and killed Kate Steinle on a warm July evening as she strolled along Pier 14 with her father, San Francisco's Sanctuary City policy has enraged swaths of the rest of America. Lopez-Sanchez, you see, had been convicted of multiple felonies and deported five times. Immigration and Customs Enforcement would have deported the Mexican national if he had not been handed over to the San Francisco Sheriff's Office on a decades-old marijuana charge.
In a Hillary Clinton vs. Donald Trump race -which, the Beltway keening aside, seems the probable outcome of the primaries - what are the odds the GOP can take the White House, Congress and the Supreme Court?
Antonin Scalia is gone. The nastiest and noisiest of right wingers on the Supreme Court is dead.

DEAR DR. ROACH: My son always has had problems with his digestive tract, and at age 17 he was diagnosed with Crohn's disease. He was sometimes getting as many as 15 bouts of diarrhea a day. A succession of doctors gave him stronger and stronger drugs. He ended up on Humira. He was not happy about this. He took the drug for about one and a half years, through his freshman year in college. The doctors all told him that he would have to take this drug, with all of its horrific side effects, for the rest of his ...
During a CNN town hall last week, Donald Trump offered up that he probably works too hard and if he had worked "a little bit less," he "probably wouldn't have had two marriages that didn't work out." Moderator Anderson Cooper then thanked Trump for participating in the event, and the last town hall before South Carolina Republicans hit voting booths was over. There were no follow-up questions about the role of Trump's -- so public it was front-page news - affair with second wife, Marla Maples, in the breakup of his first marriage.
Excuse me, but there is still only one person running for president on the Democratic side who the American people can even imagine as president. It is not, God bless him, Bernie Sanders. I say "God bless him" because I think he believes deeply and passionately in what he's saying. I think he even believes that saying it, as a candidate or president, is enough. On that I disagree. Free college? Close down Wall Street? Sorry: There aren't that many billionaires, and pension funds are among the biggest players on Wall Street, but don't get me started ...
Let me tell you something people don't often say when arguing about presidential candidates on Facebook: No candidate is perfect.
I view Apple with almost as much loathing as I save for overzealous federal prosecutors. My last Apple phone was a lemon. The "Genius Bar" isn't. When I hear Apple extol its vaunted regard for privacy, I think of all the invasive personal questions my iPhone used to ask before I could download a free app. That was before I switched to Android. Liberated from 1 Infinite Loop - that's is Apple headquarters' precious Cupertino street address - I am free of owners' cultish reverence for all things iPhone.
DEAR DR. ROACH: I have a 69-year-old woman friend who has been having TIAs for over a year. She averages one a week. Doctors are puzzled. They last 15 to 20 minutes, with drooling and numbness on the left side. I am very worried about what is going to happen. Is this normal for an older person? Aren't TIAs a prelude to a major stroke? What do you think should be done? -- Anon.

It's one thing to disagree with the decision to go to war in Iraq. That, believe it or not, was once a minority view. According to a Gallup poll taken in March 2003, the night after the Iraq war began, 76 percent supported President George W. Bush's decision. Two months after the invasion, a Gallup poll found 79 percent of Americans thought the war was justified - about half of those said, "The war will be justified regardless of whether (weapons of mass destruction) are found."
