This week, Greece fended off a looming exit from the eurozone with its election of New Democracy's Antonis Samaras -- but couldn't fend off political nemesis Germany on the soccer field, falling 4-2 in the European Cup quarterfinals. In the U.S., the Obama campaign released a new video attacking Mitt Romney's record of shipping American jobs overseas -- both as governor and as a "corporate buyout specialist." Meanwhile, Bloomberg News reported that Romney had asked Florida's Republican governor to stop touting his state's good economic news because it clashed with the GOP candidate's message that Obama is destroying the economy. And there are still 135 more days until the election -- a long, hot run-up that promises to be increasingly ugly. Finally, Rodney King died this week, his plaintive "can we all get along?" plea resonating as a fitting epitaph for our times.
