(CNN) - Our colleague TIME columnist Joe Klein has been watching Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and has some thoughts on whether she should move over to the Defense Department.
On our sister blog "Swampland," Klein writes that he was 14 years-old when he watched JFK's inauguration on a black-and-white television.
(CNN) - Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg has been named TIME’s 2010 Person of the Year, according to the magazine’s managing editor Rick Stengel.
(CNN) - We're reading the cover story in this week's TIME Magazine by our colleague Fareed Zakaria. He writes "How to Restore the American Dream."
It's his first cover story for TIME in the United States.
Be sure to tune in to Fareed Zakaria GPS on CNN every Sunday at 10 a.m. ET.
Joe Klein has been traveling the country and has Time's cover story this week about the concerns he's finding on the road.
Time is reporting that New Hampshire residents were polled by telephone last month to test their feelings about multiple 2012 Republican candidates. Some 30 questions in the poll were about real estate mogul Donald Trump.

Time is reporting that White House aides are readying themselves for the possible departure of chief of staff Rahm Emanuel, which could take place as soon as early October.
Emanuel is thought to be strongly considering a run for mayor in his hometown of Chicago, and the filing deadline for making such a run is fast approaching.

Our colleagues over at Time always have interesting things to say. Here's what we're reading at the Ticker:
Jay Newton-Small has a piece on Time's Swampland blog on the write-in candidacy of Republican Sen. Lisa Murkowski– reported from the Senator's home state of Alaska. Murkowski is the 800-pound gorilla in the room that the two other candidates, who are officially on the ballot, are taking very seriously.
And California is on the mind of Adam Sorenson who writes for Time.com about whether the Republicans can win the Governor's mansion and a Senate seat in California this November.
Our colleagues at Time have much of interest on the web too. Two we're reading here:
Remember Martha Coakley? Michael Crowley does. Will the Christine O'Donnell juggernaut blow past snickering Democrats and candidate Chris Coons like this fall's Scott Brown? Crowley suggests this is a real possibiliy in his analysis at Time.com.
Elizabeth Warren has a funny new title: Assistant to the President and Special advisor to the Secretary of the Treasury on the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau. Massimo Calabresi explains the reasoning for her not to get the job as head of the actual agency. He's written a piece for Time's Swampland.
(CNN) - It appears Bill Clinton is letting bygones be bygones.
As our friends at Time.com first reported, the former president will appear with California gubernatorial candidate Jerry Brown in mid October. Brown's campaign has also announced the upcoming visit.
This comes a week after Brown misfired with a joke about Clinton's involvement with then-White House intern Monica Lewinsky.
San Francisco Mayor Gavin Newsom will also be on the stump with Clinton and Brown.
