Hillary & her server

It's always nice to know, as I sit here writing, that somebody out there might be listening. This week, I know for sure. My last column essentially asked: What's the big deal about Hillary's emails if she's turning them over anyway?

Actually a moderate Democrat

ORINDA - Mayor Steve Glazer says that he is running for a state Senate seat vacated by now-Rep. Mark DeSaulnier "as a pragmatic problem-solver rather than a partisan." In my line of work, I hear that sort of stock phrase all the time; I take it with a grain of salt. In Glazer's case, however, two facts suggest he means business: 1) He supports a law to prohibit Bay Area Rapid Transit workers from striking as they did in 2013. 2) Public employee unions have shoveled hundreds of thousands of dollars to help defeat Glazer, a Democrat.

On Inauguration Day 2009, the White House website declared President Obama's administration would become "the most open and transparent in history." By the end of the next day, Obama had issued high-profile orders pledging "a new era" and "an unprecedented level of openness" across the massive federal bureaucracy.

Christie’s first-date speech

New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie gave his first-date speech at the California Republican Party's spring convention in Sacramento earlier this month. Like a big man on campus, Christie essentially was telling the party faithful: I know you've heard some bad stuff about me, but here's why you should go out with me.

Ethanol: GOP-supported rip-off

Can someone explain why the "party of limited government" continues, with a straight face, to support ethanol? Republican Sen. Chuck Grassley of Iowa says about the heavily subsided product, "Everything about ethanol is good, good, good."

Hollywood hypocrites

When actress Patricia Arquette won an Oscar, she pled for "wage equality" for women: "To every woman who gave birth to every taxpayer and citizen in this nation: We have fought for everybody else's equal rights. It's our time to have wage equality once and for all and equal rights for women in the United States of America."

Clinton Inc.: Living large

On Tuesday, Hillary Clinton addressed the Watermark Silicon Valley Conference for Women. The former first lady, U.S. senator and secretary of state comes to the Bay Area at a time when I hear more people, on the left and the right, cringing at the prospect of Clinton's heading the Democratic ticket next year - and, worse, squaring off against Jeb Bush in a Bush-Clinton rerun. To many, a Clinton nod has the grim inevitability of death and taxes.
