Perry has no regrets about veto, critic tells CNN that’s not the point

Washington (CNN) - In a defiant interview on “Fox News Sunday,” Gov. Rick Perry of Texas said again that despite a recent indictment, he wouldn’t take back the veto threat that triggered the legal action. However, the leader of a Texas watchdog group told CNN's "State of the Union" Sunday the veto isn’t the issue.

It’s a complicated case with long-term political implications. On Friday, Perry was indicted by a grand jury on two felony counts related to his efforts to try and force a Democratic district attorney to resign after a DWI. FULL POST

Rand Paul on Ferguson: Police too militarized

(CNN) – There’s a “legitimate” need for authorities “to keep the peace,” but the law enforcement response to racially-charged street protests over the police shooting of an unarmed Missouri teenager illustrates something more pervasive and troubling, Sen. Rand Paul said.

Writing Thursday in an opinion piece in Time, Paul noted that the wild scene of police in tactical gear apparently firing teargas and rubber pellets and pointing automatic weapons at people in the St. Louis suburb of Ferguson resembled a “war more than a traditional police action.”

No word on hug, Clinton says all's good with Obama

,

Vineyard Haven, Mass. (CNN) – The foreign policy rift between Hillary Clinton and President Barack Obama that played out publicly this week was not enough to ruin the birthday party of a mutual friend.
