DAMMAM, Saudi Arabia --The first time I visited Benghazi was in the summer of 2011, five months into the revolution. I was exploring the city and recalling the many stories my father told me about his home as I was growing up. None of his recollections could have prepared me for what I found -- a resilient city bursting with newfound energy. This is the Benghazi I remember. Three months later, Gaddafi was seized and killed by rebel forces, and the National Transitional Council declared Libya free.
The final basis for allowing humility and empathy to reshape the Clinton campaign is that it will preclude her opponents, who have not exhibited the strength of personal character to enlighten us of their own failings, to not let Mrs. Clinton's miscues be just another excuse to hold women back.
Democratic presidential candidates Bernie Sanders, Martin O'Malley and Hillary Clinton met for a town hall in Des Moines, Iowa Monday night to answer why they are the right choice to be commander-in-chief of the U.S. Here's a recap of what you may have missed from Drake University.

There hasn't been a rah-rah movie since American Sniper, and it certainly paid off for that film. 13 Hours should engender the same kind of attention and success. The politics are played down in the movie, but it should still find an audience that will put into it whatever they want to see and feel.
Why did it happen? Who did it? Why did they do it. We don't get any of that. Instead, what we do get is hordes of encroaching brown people, whose numbers don't seem to diminish no matter how many bullets are unloaded into them.
Thursday's Fox Business News Republican presidential debate in Charleston will likely overshadow Sunday's Democratic debate in that same city.
I've been noticing that Democrats -- all the way up to and including Hillary Clinton herself -- seem to be awfully complacent about the possible outcomes of next year's presidential race. This could be dangerous, because nothing in politics is ever written in stone.
As we do every year, we are pre-empting our regular "Friday Talking Points" column, in order to bring you our "best and worst of 2015" list.

Islamic State is not being contained. It has now expanded to 35 international affiliates. It is zeroing in on North Africa in general, and on Libya in particular, in an attempt to create, on a far vaster scale, an even bigger Islamic State on the very edge of Europe's doorstep.
Yet again, the GOP leadership is hoping, perhaps even anticipating, that the voters will move away from erratic, outsider frontrunners like Donald Trump and Ben Carson.
