Congress Offers Creative Solution to College Rape Epidemic

nationaljournal.com — This fall, as high school seniors prepare to apply to colleges, many will scan the rankings provided by U.S. News & World Report. They'll compare colleges' class sizes, tuition prices, the student-faculty ratio and-potentially-their sexual assault statistics. That is, if some members of Congress get their way.

Candidates Are Now Suggesting Ad Copy for Super PACs

nationaljournal.com — Candidates can't legally talk strategy with a super PAC. But can they write a super PAC's ad copy? That's the question raised by a new page on Sen.

Why You Can't Compare Hillary Clinton's Age to Ronald Reagan's

nationaljournal.com — The age comparisons between Hillary Clinton and Ronald Reagan seem as natural as they are nonsensical. Yes, were Clinton to win in 2016, she would take office at age 69-just as Reagan did in 1981.

Watch Fox News Try to Avoid Talking About Cliven Bundy

nationaljournal.com — Now that rancher Cliven Bundy is officially racist, Fox News isn't too eager to even utter his name.

nationaljournal.com — Barely three months before the presidential election in 1920, politicians suddenly had millions of new voters to win over: women. The race to draw female voters to the polls was on. The Republican Party, politically dissimilar from its modern-day version, went with a straightforward message to attract women, who had gained the right to vote that August with the ratification of the 19th Amendment.

Cliven Bundy Just Ruined His Cause

nationaljournal.com — The New York Times has overheard Cliven Bundy-the Nevada rancher who, instead of paying decades of overdue grazing fees, met the Bureau of Land management with guns and a small militia-saying this: "I want to tell you one more thing I know about the Negro," he said.

5 Reasons Hillary Clinton Shouldn’t Worry Too Much About Elizabeth Warren

Elizabeth Warren is attracting plenty of attention this week with a new book out that many observers speculate is a place-setter for a potential 2016 presidential run.

How Moving to Another State Could Drastically Change Your Income

nationaljournal.com — All incomes are not created equal. The value of a person's salary often depends on which state they're living in. For instance, a $40,000 income in Iowa-where the cost of living is lower-is worth more than a $40,000 income in Hawaii.
