Rounds, Weiland South Dakota Race Could Decide Senate Majority — On Tuesday, a coalition of progressive groups announced they were pumping $2 million into the South Dakota Senate race. If you hadn't previously known there was a Senate race in South Dakota this year, that's probably forgivable.

Inequality in Brazil Shows Why Hillary Clinton is Wrong — To her credit, Hillary Clinton has seized on inequality as a theme of her proto-presidential campaign. She has despaired about the increasing "share of income and wealth going to those at the very top-not just the top 1 percent, but the top .1 percent or the .01 percent."

Finally, the Truth About the Bailout — WASHINGTON - TODAY is the start of the trial in Starr International Co. Inc. v. United States, the case alleging that the government's 2008 bailout of A.I.G. amounted to an unconstitutional plunder of the company's shareholders. Starr, a firm run by the former A.I.G. chief executive Maurice R.

Hillary Clinton Uses Elizabeth Warren's Book Title — As Maeve Reston points out in her Los Angeles Times analysis of Hillary Clinton's recent comings and goings, Clinton isn't giving us a ton of clues about what she would actually do as president. On the other hand, it looks like Clinton has inadvertently given us some insight into what, or at least who, is weighing on her mind.

Hillary Clinton at the Harkin Steak Fry — Granted, Hillary Clinton's appearance at Iowa Senator Tom Harkin's steak fry on Sunday was of minimal long-term consequence. It was at best a symbolic re-entry to presidential politics, a homage to the rituals of campaigning in Iowa.

Seth Bannon's Email About Harvard Extension School — Bannon wrote that he "was a senior studying Philosophy and Government at Harvard at the Extension School before dropping out." According to a Harvard administration official, the extension school doesn't use undergraduate classifications like "junior" and "senior." Full email follows: Topper, Thanks for having me at your dumpling party yesterday.

Amicus App: How Tech Investors Are Failing on Due Diligence — On July 1, Seth Bannon appeared before several hundred techies and investors at the New York Tech Meetup, the industry gathering where Tumblr and Foursquare made their debut. Even among this pedigreed audience, Bannon inspired great interest.

Scott Walker, Mary Burke Governor Race May Shape Future U.S. Politics — Everyone knows the most important political race in the country this fall is the race that determines control of the U.S. Senate, which is very much up in the air. According to The New York Times prediction model, the deciding race would be North Carolina if the election were held today.

David Plouffe will serve Uber like he served Obama — My first thought after hearing that Uber hired David Plouffe to be its "campaign manager" in the fight against bureaucrats and taxi companies was a story I first heard in 2008. Back then, Plouffe was still managing more pedestrian operations, like presidential campaigns.

Silicon Valley's Sharing Economy: Airbnb, Lyft Are Selling a Big Lie — If you've used Airbnb or Uber or any other "sharing economy" service lately, you may be surprised to learn that you were not a consumer but a foot-soldier in a movement. And like any self-respecting movement, this one has a set of core principles that must periodically be affirmed and elaborated-in this case, at a slickly-produced conference called "Share" back in May.
