Howard Fineman: Herman Cain, Barack Obama: The Real Winners Of Las Vegas Debate
The winners of Tuesday night's GOP debate: Herman Cain and President Obama. With the devastating accuracy of a CIA drone, the Republican candidates zeroed in on their own party's chances with exchanges that played right into Democrats' hands on a series of issues, from immigration to taxes. And while Mitt Romney and Rick Perry behaved like petulant, name-calling schoolboys, Herman Cain weathered a half-hour assault on his 999 plan, with which CNN began the debate. In this environment, Rick Santorum sounded almost mild and reasonable, which gives you an idea of what kind of a night it was.
Elizabeth Abbott: Why Wives Can't Have Misters
The double standard that inspired and facilitated Mistressdom is an impenetrable block to a parallel institution of Misterdom.
Richard Simmons: Dieting: America's Favorite Pastime?
I can hear you now: "But Richard, dieting is not a hobby!" Well, if you're taking into account the classic definition of the word "hobby," you're probably right. But that's really not my point.
Carine Fabius: I Look Better Than Multi-Millionaire Celebrities
I've become a convert to using items out of my refrigerator and kitchen cabinets to make my facial cleanser, moisturizer, skin-tightening mask, blusher and whatever else I can think of as I lie awake at night.
Larry Magid: Think Twice Before Sharing on Social Networks
In 1968, Andy Warhol said, "In the future, everyone will be world-famous for 15 minutes." The future is here, but with the wrong click, that could easily turn into 15 minutes of infamy.
