Where candidates stash their cash

chron.com — Chain Bridge Bank's single location is next to a wine store and a café on the ground floor of a luxury condo building in suburban McLean, Virginia, about a half-hour outside downtown Washington. It looks like any small- town bank. Tellers keep bowls of candy at their windows, and staff members talk to customers about no-fee checking accounts.

Martin O'Malley Had a Footnote Mishap - But Don't Overlook the Policy

bloomberg.com — This much is clear from the early weeks of Martin O'Malley's presidential campaign: he is positioning himself as the bane of Wall Street's existence. He attacked Goldman Sachs Chief Executive Officer Lloyd Blankfein during his campaign announcement speech.

John McCain Dropped a Foul Ball. He's Got a Good Excuse, Internet.

bloomberg.com — Arizona Senator John McCain spent a couple of hours of his congressional recess last night at the Arizona Diamondbacks game. Totally normal. A foul ball even came his way-one he couldn't quite hang onto. http://m.mlb.com/video/v215905483/sfmia-gordon-laces-insidethepark-home-run Cue the internet mockery. Now, John McCain is pretty famous, and not just in the Washington sense.

From TPA to TPP: A Trade Deal Explainer

bloomberg.com — Hillary Clinton weighed in on the trade debate Sunday during a campaign stop in Iowa. Or maybe she didn't. Or she did, but not in the way people thought she did. Confused or frustrated yet? You're not alone.

White House Ponders How to Get Back on the Fast Track

bloomberg.com — Procedural snafu or the unofficial end of Barack Obama's presidency? Those appear to be the two narratives to rally behind following the decision by the president's own party to send a key component of a trade package down in flames, at least for now.

Obama Goes All In on Trade Deal Passage

bloomberg.com — President Barack Obama is all in. There's no couching or caution, no hedging or looking for escape valves. His decision to swing by the congressional baseball game last night, followed by his visit Friday morning to Capitol Hill to talk to House Democrats behind closed doors solidified that in the closing moments of congressional negotiations over his authority to negotiate trade deals, it is all on his shoulders.

Is Anyone Not Running for the Republican Presidential Nomination?

bloomberg.com — Everyone, it seems, is in. The multi-year "will they or won't they" game that political reporters, operatives and junkies have been playing was all for naught. Just about every Republican whose name was floated as a potential 2016 candidate-and a few who never even entered the conversation -have taken a look at the political landscape and decided to enter the race or have given clear signals that a campaign launch is imminent.

Behind the Scenes With Ben Carson Before His Campaign Announcement

bloomberg.com — DETROIT-"This is the most important part of the show!" the stage manager declared Sunday night, after the third failed attempt to nail the closing number during rehearsals. After a pause, he realized his mistake. "Oh well, besides Dr. Carson's remarks, of course."
