Hillary Clinton's New Book Title Has Already Been Used by a Former Secretary of State

nationaljournal.com — Hillary Clinton's upcoming memoir, which is expected to look back at her time as secretary of state, now has a name: Hard Choices . Which is an okay title! She no doubt had to make some tough decisions while at State, and has at least one big decision to make coming up in the next year or so.

The Fracking Industry Faces Its Climate Demon

nationaljournal.com — BUFFALO TOWNSHIP, Pa.-On a flat, roughly one-acre square cut into a hilltop in the rolling farmlands, four natural-gas wells sit adjacent boxy machines that separate wastewater and hydrocarbons sucked from the ground over two square miles. Attached to those boxes are gauges small enough to easily escape notice.

The Incredible Shrinking Senate Majority

nationaljournal.com — While both parties are pouring vast sums into the battle for Senate control, the best advice for whichever side wins the majority in November may be three simple words: Don't unpack everything. Structural changes in voters' behavior are making it tougher for either party to amass, much less sustain, a comfortable Senate majority-except in rare circumstances.

Good News for Obamacare Is Bad News for Conservative Pundits

nationaljournal.com — Conservatives were sure at every turn that Obamacare would fail, but as the numbers roll in, those convictions are looking increasingly ideological. First they said nobody would enroll. Then they said first-year premiums would be through the roof. And later, they warned of a "death spiral," wherein premiums would go up uncontrollably.

A Conspiracy Theory for Everyone in New Clinton Docs

nationaljournal.com — Newly released internal documents from the Clinton White House have something for conspiracy theorists of all stripes. While most people are familiar with conspiracy theories involving the Illuminati or the Freemasons, black helicopter-fearing connoisseurs of modern conspiracism will tell you the real puppeteers of the New World Order are the members of the Bilderberg Group, a very real and very secretive clique of financial, government, and civil society leaders.

President Obama Just Signed a Ted Cruz Bill Into Law

nationaljournal.com — President Obama signed a bill into law Friday, authored by Texas Republican Sen. Ted Cruz, to essentially bar Iran's proposed United Nations ambassador from entering the U.S. The measure, which easily passed the Senate and House by voice vote last week, denies admission to U.N.

Tobacco Lobby Opens a New Playbook for E-Cigarettes

nationaljournal.com — One e-cigarette maker markets a flavor called "Congress," with a website displaying a photo of the Capitol and describing the taste as "refined tobacco." To some, it might evoke the smoke-filled rooms of yore. But "vaping" is not smoking, and the debate over regulating e-cigarettes is not necessarily another tobacco war.

You May Be Surprised By The States That Support Pre-K

nationaljournal.com — When President Obama called for universal access to pre-K programs in his 2014 State of the Union address, viewers could have been forgiven for thinking this was just another big government initiative that only a liberal could love.

1889: What the White House Easter Egg Roll Looked Like

nationaljournal.com — President Benjamin Harrison had a crisis. A child had let go of a balloon in the White House, during the Easter Egg roll on April 22, 1889. And we all know how hard it can be to get a balloon down from the corner of a ceiling, lest deal with the child suddenly stripped of a most prized and buoyant plaything.
