A quiet Friday morning at the White House was interrupted with an urgent statement by the President, that he was going to reject the Keystone Pipeline Deal.
Vice President of the United States of America, Joe Biden, gave passionate closing remarks at the Summit on Climate Change and the road Through Paris, on Monday the 19th of October, at the White House.
The conditions seem perfect for a real political debate between two candidates who differ from each other on many key issues.
For the first six months of the Democratic primary, the media -- including the New York Times and Washington Post -- relished writing everything they could to hurt the Clinton campaign. But now everything has changed.
Mr. Bush, who is now fifth in the polls and twenty points behind the leading candidate, has proven an uninspired campaigner and lackluster debater. Moreover, the unexpected rise of Ben Carson and Donald Trump has left little room for a consummate establishment Republican figure like Jeb Bush.
It's a victory, but I'm afraid it's a small victory. Rather, it's more of a baby step that, while filling many people with hope, has a long way to go before it's up and running as an accepted norm in America's work culture.

Millennials, however, are rallying in support of Clinton when she hosted her first campaign event after the Benghazi hearing in Alexandria, Virginia. An NBC News-Survey Monkey poll found that Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders is leading Clinton with millennials 54 percent to 26 percent.
We live in a society - and an era - in which many middle-aged men define themselves by what they do, not for who they are. That's why it was so refreshing that two of the most powerful men in the country recently put their family life before their professional pursuits.

My mother on Facebook: There is nothing more frightening than a mom with a Facebook account on the loose with photos of you in compromising positions. From tips about 'packing a clean pair of underwear' to dating advice on your public wall, mom's can be a social media nightmare.
I can see Biden's point about solving the nation's problems: If you're working toward solutions, why call an advocate of a policy you oppose your "enemy," when "my good friend across the aisle" will do? My reservation is that speaking well of the other party can drain genuinely moral disputes of authentic moral authority.
The media is looking at Joe Biden's announcement that he will not run for President strictly as a political calculation. But I choose to view his decision through the lens of a woman who took six years to retire from a career she loved. And I want to tell him that eventually, another window will open for him.
As Vice President Joe Biden announced his decision last week not to run for president, he talked about dreams denied, possibilities foreclosed. He wasn't speaking of his own aspirations, though.
Vanden Heuvel and Cooke debate if Hillary escaped the gravitational orbit of both 42 and 44 to be a potential president/commander-in-chief. Then, the 2012 VP opponents are again news, as one rises and the other exits. And the Host boasts about predicting Hillary's win and Joe's withdrawal.
This week, Joe Biden said no, Jim Webb and Lincoln Chafee said no more, while Hillary Clinton endured 11 hours of Benghazi hearings aimed more at finding attack ad soundbites than facts. Meanwhile, Paul Ryan threw his hat into the ring for Speaker, but only after telling his House-mates, "I cannot and will not give up my family time." Bravo! It's a big moment when a political leader says that when he's about to take a big job rather than as a euphemism for being fired. Now Ryan should work to make it possible for all Americans to experience more family time. In the past, Ryan has opposed paid family leave, allowing America to remain the world's only developed country without it. So, as he seeks to unify the GOP caucus, he should also fight for family-friendly policies at a time when the country really needs them.
