He accurately predicted that Franklin Roosevelt would trounce Alf Landon. For decades after that, the polling business was dominated by Gallup and a few rivals. But the 1990s saw a...

The Mom Vivant / You’ve gotta love this word – Kerfuffle!

September 26, 2012  |  No Comments  |  Share

So, I thought the recent story over the Queen getting herself into a "kerfuffle" by stepping outside the bounds of the monarchy by commenting on the case of a radical Islamic cleric was hysterical. No, not because it was as unusual as Madonna shouting to the crowd at a recent show of hers that Obama is a Black Muslim and...

It’s going to come down to the Maroons

September 26, 2012  |  No Comments  |  Share

I saw a Mom at a football game the other day and told her I wish she would run for office.

The Mom Vivant / Debbie Baldwin of Ladue News

September 17, 2012  |  No Comments  |  Share

By Debbie Baldwin While I’m generally loath to perpetuate stereotypes when it comes to women and automotive knowledge, unfortunately, I don’t do much for my gender’s cause. I mean, I’m the woman who drove around for a year with a slow leak in a tire and just kept putting air in it as needed. That being said, it stands to reason...

Will uncertainty among blacks and women lead to low turnout?

September 17, 2012  |  No Comments  |  Share

I just read an article from the Associated Press that claims some social conservatives in the African American community may be wavering about whether to vote for President Barack Obama.
