How Hillary Clinton Took Charge In The First Presidential Debate — Here is the story of this debate so far: Hillary Clinton is a strong debater, and she came to play.

A Republican Who Thinks Trump Is Playing Too Nice

Strong Tropical Wave - Could Become Hermine Shortly — On cue the tropical Atlantic is getting active. There isn't much left of Fiona and Gaston is way out in the eastern Atlantic.

BuzzFeed Edit News — Right before Britain voted to leave the European Union, this chart went viral: In short, the old voted to leave. And it looks like the old voted a lot more than the young. The young - with far longer to reckon with the change - are stuck with the result.

Selling Trump In Park City — The toughest guy in Park City this weekend was Anthony Scaramucci, a top Donald Trump fundraiser and his emissary to the anti-Trump resistance.

Selling Trump In Park City — The toughest guy in Park City this weekend was Anthony Scaramucci, a top Donald Trump fundraiser and his emissary to the anti-Trump resistance.
