Susan Estrich: Planned Parenthood politics

Posted 9/19/2015 in National Columns

It wasn't just the Republican candidates who, with one exception, went out of their ways to outdo one another in their condemnation of an organization that is the sole provider of basic gynecological, obstetric and preventative care services to millions of American men and women.


Susan Estrich: The lesson of Kim Davis

Posted 9/14/2015 in National Columns

Raising her arms in a sign of victory, Kim Davis -- the now-famous Kentucky clerk who was jailed for contempt when she refused to obey a court order that she (and every clerk in the state) issue licenses to same-sex couples -- was released from jail this week.


Susan Estrich: The summer of 2015

Posted 9/5/2015 in National Columns

In politics, this has been the summer of discontent, of revolt against Washington and established politics and, most of all, experienced politicians. How else to explain what is happening in both parties? Among Democrats, Independent Bernie Sanders is giving Hillary Clinton a run for her money in polls in Iowa and New Hampshire. And among Republicans, none of the top three candidates according to the latest polls -- Donald Trump, Dr. Ben Carson and Carly Fiorina -- have ever held elected office.


Susan Estrich: President Trump?

Posted 8/31/2015 in National Columns

The new polls showing Donald Trump in a strong lead for the Republican nomination tell you just how much trouble the Republican Party is in right now.


Susan Estrich: The failure of the insanity defense

Posted 8/28/2015 in National Columns

Was James Holmes -- convicted of the 2012 massacre at the Aurora movie theatre -- nuts?


Susan Estrich: Epic care

Posted 8/21/2015 in National Columns

Are you one of the 54 percent of all Americans whose medical records are typed and stored on Epic?


Susan Estrich: Could Hillary Clinton lose?

Posted 8/8/2015 in National Columns

The chattering class, fed by the drumbeat of conservatives and the criticism of look-alike Republicans, is actually acknowledging that the former Secretary of State is not made entirely of Teflon. Some of her support is soft. Some Democrats don't like her. Never have.


Susan Estrich: Stunt time

Posted 8/5/2015 in National Columns

What should you look for if you happen to be one of those dedicated Americans who watches "primary" debates?


Susan Estrich: The 'no shame' debate

Posted 7/25/2015 in National Columns

No one has a later term abortion because she's changed her mind about having a baby. Doctors in almost all states won't perform them for that reason; and, by the way, what kind of beasts do you think women are? Late-term abortions are tragedies, often a last resort because much-wanted babies, or their mothers, develop conditions not consistent with life.


Susan Estrich: The Donald

Posted 7/22/2015 in National Columns

What's wrong with the way we pick our presidents? The answer has got to be: plenty.


Susan Estrich: Women get the money

Posted 6/22/2015 in National Columns

Actually, they don't. Whether you're a butcher, a baker or a candlestick maker, you make more if you're a man.


Susan Estrich: Who do you side with?

Posted 6/19/2015 in National Columns

There's nothing as depressing as asking young people whether they plan to participate in the election and hearing them tell you they have no idea which candidate to be for or what the differences are or, worse, that it doesn't matter.


Susan Estrich: Brand names

Posted 6/12/2015 in National Columns

Not another Bush v. Clinton campaign, you hear from Republicans who aren't for Jeb Bush anyway.


Susan Estrich: The Carter myth

Posted 6/1/2015 in National Columns

Does George Pataki really think he can win the nomination? Rand Paul? Rick Santorum? Whoever announced this morning?


Susan Estrich: The graduates

Posted 5/22/2015 in National Columns

It must be very difficult to be a college graduate these days.


Susan Estrich: The value of nurses

Posted 4/4/2015 in National Columns

I never quite understood what "nursing" really meant until the past six months, when the supposed superstar doctor, who operated on me in Phoenix (One of the smartest male doctors I know told me she was the best, a woman, how wonderful; beware of gender bias.), made a mess of my intestines, leaving me rather critically ill with peritonitis and unbearable pain while she went to Maui.


Susan Estrich: Money: the first primary

Posted 3/19/2015 in National Columns

Money is often called the first primary, because there's nothing else out there to be officially judged by the FEC reports.


Susan Estrich: What Congress can't do

Posted 3/18/2015 in National Columns

Here's the short answer: Anything.


Susan Estrich: Hillary and her server

Posted 3/12/2015 in National Columns

It's always nice to know, as I sit here writing, that somebody out there might be listening. This week, I know for sure.


Susan Estrich: Honoring our presidents

Posted 2/18/2015 in National Columns

The headline that caught my attention on Presidents Day could not have been starker, colder: "Intense Republican Hate Is Skewing Obama Polls."
