What do shutdown and debt limit have to do with Obamacare?

Washington (CNN) - With a series of potential disasters hovering over the nation like a demon storm, the most prominent words of a Washington-based word cloud would be: government shutdown, continuing resolution, debt limit and Obamacare.

Polls: Single digit race in crucial gubernatorial battle

Washington (CNN) - With six weeks to go until Election Day and one day until a crucial debate showdown, two new polls indicate Democrat Terry McAuliffe on top of Republican Ken Cuccinelli in the much watched battle for Virginia governor.

And according to both surveys, released Monday night from NBC4/NBC News/Marist and Washington Post/Abt SRBI, McAuliffe's advantage seems to be fueled by his lead among female voters.
