If it’s tough being a kid, try being a “first kid” — the child of an American president. Just ask President Bill Clinton‘s daughter, Chelsea. Or President George W. Bush‘s twins, Jenna and Barbara.

Ten-year-old Barron was the target of a poorly received joke tweeted by a “Saturday Night Live” writer on Jan. 20 as the new first family reveled in Inauguration Day events. Separately in Chicago, comedian Shannon…

Hillary Clinton bested Donald Trump in three debates. She leads in many preference polls of the most competitive states. Barring a significant shift in the next two weeks, she is in a strong position to become the first woman elected U.S. president. But Clinton will end the campaign still struggling to change the minds of millions of voters who don’t think well of her, a glaring liability should the Democratic nominee move on to the White House.

in 2017/Top Headlines by

It’s Hillary Clinton‘s turn. The Democratic National Convention opening Monday in Philadelphia is Clinton’s chance to hit reset after a vigorous primary against Bernie Sanders and the unlikely movement that formed behind the Vermont senator. Sanders, a self-described democratic socialist, has endorsed Clinton, but many of his supporters have not. Some of them were dismayed by her choice of Sen. Tim Kaine, D-Va., as her running mate.

in Apolitical/Top Headlines by

Today on Context Florida: Wake up Florida, says Ed Moore. Donald Trump is dangerous. More is taking one more swipe at Trump before the Florida primary, hoping (with all his heart) that fellow Floridians wake up Tuesday morning realizing they are being taken for a ride by one of the most negative people ever to seek public office. You might think our British friends would be too busy freaking out over the refugee crisis, their epochal June 23 referendum on whether…

Regarding Islamic terrorists, Lindsey Graham says he’d “kill every bastard he could find”

in 2017/Top Headlines by

South Carolina Sen. Lindsey Graham gave an extremely low-key speech at the Sunshine Summit in Orlando on Friday afternoon, concentrating on foreign policy and his concern that the Republican Party could be blowing the Hispanic vote with candidates’  tough talk on immigration. Graham isn’t going anywhere in the GOP presidential race, and he essentially acknowledged that in his speech, talking more about how the Republican Party can win the presidency, not how he can personally. He spent a considerable amount…
