Everyone should celebrate Clinton’s milestone: An interesting take from the American Prospect. I found this paragraph in particular to be intriguing:

As I’ve written before, I’ve long believed that the right-wing apoplexy over the presidency of Bill Clinton was prompted not by his assertion that he had smoked weed but didn’t inhale, or that he avoided serving in the Vietnam War, or had a history of philandering. It was that he married that Rodham woman and seemed fine with her lawyering around—and even appreciated her giant brain. “Two for the price of one” was how he described, during the 1992 campaign, the benefit she brought to his potential presidency.

Top supporters of Bernie Sanders gently tell him that “It’s time”: Give it up, Bernie. You lost.

Friedman pleads for a new GOP:

America needs a center-right party ready to offer market-based solutions to issues like climate change. America needs a center-right party that will support common-sense gun laws. America needs a center-right party that will support common-sense fiscal policy. America needs a center-right party to support both free trade and aid to workers impacted by it. America needs a center-right party that appreciates how much more complicated foreign policy is today, when you have to manage weak and collapsing nations, not just muscle strong ones.

Hiring in April at slowest pace in nearly two years: Our economy is in a precarious situation right now.
