  • Well, this is something to look forward to. Not:
    And now that the political world is beginning to think about 2016, it’s become apparent that Hillary will be a front-runner like we’ve rarely seen if she joins the race.

    So Republicans have a problem. As long as the threat of another Clinton campaign looms, they can’t continue with their hands-off approach. They must find a way to make her a villain all over again, to revert to their 1992-2008 treatment of her – and fast.

  • Go look at this picture. Seriously, go look now.
  • Queen Elizabeth goes all 21st century:
    She made her acting debut at the London Olympics. Now Queen Elizabeth II is hitting the screen again — in 3D.

    Buckingham Palace says the monarch was “ready to embrace something new” for her annual Christmas broadcast in honor of her Diamond Jubilee year — 60 years on the throne.

  • Not from The Onion:
    Can humility be taught?

    Famed New York Times columnist David Brooks seems to think it can -- or at the very least philosophically explained. Yale's Bullblog reports Brooks is set to teach a new course at Yale University next semester entitled, you guessed it, "Humility."

  • I dare you not to click on this:
    Getting to second base, the holy grail for hormonal boys, is now science[.]
  • She's not wrong. But she's still Sarah.
  • Ugh:
    William Bryan Jennings, the banker whose assault and hate-crime charges over a dispute with a New York cab driver were dropped, was fired by Morgan Stanley and is now reportedly trying to get millions in deferred compensation denied him by his former employer.
  • Oh Saturn, you are such a showboat!—DarkSyde
  • Your LOL of the day.
  • On today's Kagro in the Morning show, Greg Dworkin analyzed the latest polling on gun issues. Then, would anyone give up their guns even if the Constitution were somehow magically amended in a way that made such a thing possible? And if not, is what we're engaged in really a "debate" at all? Finally, more discussion of "constitutional hardball" in multiple familiar contexts that just might end up making your head explode, or leave you wishing it would.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
