With each passing year the incredible stories of heroism give way to ones of failure. As we've seen, stories about suffering sadly tend to get more eyeballs than those of progress and lessons learned.
Clinton can easily parry the GOP hits as the customary political bloodletting from her ancient and implacable foe. But now there's a new twist in the bash Hillary game.
Is Hillary Clinton running for President? I don't know -- but if she is, I know what she should be doing right now.
By mobilizing the nation's leading thinkers, Clinton could tap the spirit of Francis to propel the next great era of shared American prosperity.

President Barack Obama's vacation schedule reflected the reality of this holiday season in which Christmas and New Year's Day each fell upon a Wednesday, with long weekends bleeding into long weekends.
