The Politics of Feminism: It's Not All about Gender Democrat Hillary Clinton would be the first woman president, but many self-styled "feminists" are not supporting her candidacy. Some advocates of women's rights back Bernie Sanders, while Republican Carly Fiorina insists that she and other conservatives are also "feminists." The idea has evolved from the suffragettes to Roe v. Wade to Betty Friedan to Beyoncé. Different opinions between and within generations could make a difference in this year's primary elections.
Questions for the President? President Barack Obama made political theater last week when he fielded questions from Republicans. Politics watchers on both sides of the aisle loved the sparkling Q&A, and now a coalition of Democrats and Republicans is demanding he repeat the process , in regular debates akin to Britain’s Questions for the Prime Minister . But the White House says no. Why? Could more direct dialogue help Obama get his message out? Could it benefit the republic?
Trump's 'America First' goes missing abroad In the Middle East, President Trump is changing some policies of the Obama Administration—and reversing his own campaign attacks on Islam as a religion that "hates us." We hear about his visit to Saudi Arabia and what's at stake for the rest of his foreign excursion.

The White House denied the claim and called it insulting, but Republican Senators did not challenge Comey’s truthfulness. Many questions remain: did the President try to obstruct a federal investigation? Later, we’ll go behind the “velvet rope” for a look at 5-Star health care for the richest Americans.
