This week, Hillary Clinton launched her campaign, but didn't order sofritas at Chipotle, the House of Representatives voted to offer upward of $250 billion in handouts to needy, filthy-rich Americans, and a man flew a gyrocopter onto the U.S. Capitol lawn to get us to talk about campaign finance reform.
Rubio's meme is "I'm the future", but models JFK and Obama didn't want to go back to '20s and '50s. Clinton's is "I'm your neighbor's mom", but will GOP Evita-ize her? Lowry and Vanden Heuvel discuss both as well as whether the bi-partisan agreement on Congress's role on Iran Deal is win-win for both parties.
If Bruce had told me about his gender issue when we first began getting romantically involved, I would not have married him. Pure and simple. But looking back, I'm so grateful to God, the universe, and Bruce that I didn't know, and that Bruce played the role in my life that he did.
Dr. Oz is not a dumb guy. He has an undergrad degree from Harvard and both an MBA and a medical degree from the University of Pennsylvania. He is a professor in Columbia University's surgery department. But fame and money have turned the accomplished Turkish-American cardiothoracic surgeon into a cross between a game-show host and an infomercial spokesperson.
Changing family dynamics, a shifting economic landscape, the surge of women into the workforce and public life are all adding pieces to the kaleidoscopic picture of what it means to be a man in America today. Begging the question: Just who is the 21st Century Man?

Newsrooms are always looking for stories their audiences will find interesting, and the idea of a celebrity they have known for decades revealing they are transgender is attention-getting. Can it be told without resorting to sensationalism?
I just feel like Juicy's killing the vibe here. Usher's trying to show his sensitive side about his bitch's career choice, but Juicy just comes in all brash about it. Maybe it's that Juicy is also confused about Usher's position on this matter.
Rush, let me talk to you the way I'd talk to someone who knows absolutely nothing about the differences between capitalism and socialism. When a business owner decides on a wage policy for his employees, that is something that only happens in capitalism. In socialism, the government doesn't just set a minimum wage; it determines all wages.
Actor Ben Affleck, recently the subject of the PBS series Searching For Your Roots, a direct copy, by the way of the BBC series Who Do You Think You Are, found out that his ancestors were once slave-holders.
We look forward to his on-air response, and hope that Dr. Oz will be transparent and honest about his methods, intentions and future behavior.
As longtime observers and analysts of women's political progress, we look forward to seeing how a gender-forward election season unfolds. Instead of clichés and easy headlines about pantsuits and catfights, we must see serious and nuanced discussion, drawing on a growing body of research about gender in politics.
