Clinton and Obama will both be in New York on Wednesday!!! Game, set, match!


The White House is in active conversations with Mrs. Clinton’s campaign about how and where the president would be useful to her, according to senior aides to Mr. Obama.

White House and Clinton campaign officials declined to pinpoint any timing for an endorsement. But Mr. Obama has scheduled a trip to New York on Wednesday to attend Democratic fund-raisers, placing him near Mrs. Clinton’s Brooklyn campaign headquarters the day after Tuesday’s balloting.

Help me understand why choosing the nominee who lost the delegate and popular vote is "democracy"

What's the point of sending yuuuge crowd to Philly?

[WSJ] Ultimate Staycation? A Second Home in the Same City


On Friday evenings, Eric Straus and his wife Varinda Missett pack their things, grab their dog and leave their Midtown Manhattan apartment for their weekend home—50 blocks downtown.

Last summer, Mr. Straus and Ms. Missett paid $1.988 million for a two-bedroom apartment in the Manhattan neighborhood of Tribeca, which they use as their weekend getaway. “What I love is that unlike the Hamptons, it’s a quick subway ride down there, and it totally feels like you’re on vacation,” Mr. Straus, 56, said. In comparison to the hustle and bustle of Midtown, their cobblestoned Tribeca street is “quiet—it feels like a country home.”

Some home buyers are buying vacation homes in the same city or metropolitan area as their primary residence. They say the key to relaxation is a change of scenery, even if it’s just a few miles from where they normally live

Having a second home nearby comes in handy for overflow house guests, or when a dinner downtown goes late.

I thought the whole point of getting away is to get away!

"dinner downtown goes late" -> 50 blocks is about a 10 minutes ride (say around 80s to 30s).

Will Sanders ask for a recount of the delegates count at the convention?

Or will he have the class and grace to do this?

Only he can determine how history remembers him
