It was a telling moment that almost went unnoticed. After shaking hands with debate moderator Chris Wallace on Wednesday night, Hillary Clinton strode off the stage into a circle of family. And at the center of that circle was Meg Whitman, who received the first handshake and first hug.
To loyal fans of Chris Christie, his interview Monday with NBC must come as a relief: the New Jersey governor took a small chance to throw his one-time foe Donald Trump under the bus.

Who says a Donald Trump administration might never come to pass? The Republican National Committee (RNC) is asking for cabinet ideas! Yes, the RNC blasted its email list with a survey Wednesday asking supporters "who they'd like to see on the team that helps Trump Make America Great Again."
The presidential transition teams should adopt a rigorous code of ethics restricting participation from lobbyists and limiting financial conflicts of interest, a coalition of good-government and progressive groups said Wednesday.

Presidential transitions officially have about 75 days following an election to plan, laying the groundwork for the first 100 days and executing all the logistics involved in installing a new president. To transition leaders, this interval of time can seem depressingly short.
There are two common ways of thinking about Washington internships. One, as a rite of passage for ambitious young people. And two, as singular opportunities available only to candidates whose parents are wealthy enough to foot the bill.
As ambitious Washingtonians begin angling for nominations in a potential Clinton or Trump administration, there's one issue they should have on their minds. It's simple. Do you submit payroll taxes for your nanny? For harried power couples who need help with childcare, this question can dash ambitions of a political appointment before the official vetting process even gets underway.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
