I see it happening all the time -- women who went to Ivy League schools and who held highly-demanding, high-status, high-pay jobs -- deciding to stay at home after they have a baby. They all thought carefully about their decisions, weighing the pros and cons. Instead of the prison of a 9 to 5 work culture, they preferred to keep their brains sharp and stay connected by volunteering and sitting on boards.
One great thing about a Sanders presidency is that Americans will be able to trust a person who never had to evolve towards progressive stances on war, foreign policy, Wall Street, and environmental issues like Keystone XL.
At last a little clarity. On most issues the Republican candidates are in lockstep. JeJoCaDoRaBeMaTe merge and unify, usually on the far right of the ideological spectrum.

Candidates repeatedly got lost in Maria Bartiromo's eyes. You know--the media. Am I right? Huh? Who's with me? Unfair questions pertaining to business, economy, jobs, taxes, trade, Wall Street, median wages, oil prices, retail sales, Social Security.

Unless similarly solid historical evidence emerges in the form of records or on the record eyewitness accounts, it will be very difficult, if not impossible, for anybody to credibly challenge the veracity of Dr. Carson's biography.
Whether it's true or not, Ben, why even tell that story? Why tell that story when you are running for President of the United States? I don't admire hammer-wielding people in general, but I cringe at the notion of anyone waving the hammer at their mother. That is just wrong on any level.
