Washington (CNN) – The calendar reads May 2013, but in some ways it sure feels a lot closer to 2016.

(CNN) – A second straight national poll this week indicates the obvious: Hillary Clinton, if she decides to run for the White House again, would be the overwhelming front-runner among Democrats for their party's 2016 presidential nomination.
But what if Clinton rules out another bid for president?
(CNN) - She's the other woman in a special congressional election in South Carolina that's captured national attention.
No. We're not talking about Maria Belen Chapur, the woman from Argentina who in 2009 was involved in an affair with Gov. Mark Sanford. Fast forward to 2013 and the former governor is now divorced from his wife and engaged to Chapur, and he's seeking political redemption as he runs for a vacant House seat that he once held for three terms. Sanford's been very open about the affair on the campaign trail making it the subject of his first political ad.

(CNN) - Do you need more evidence that Hillary Clinton, if she decides to run for the White House again, would be the overwhelming front-runner among Democrats for their party's 2016 presidential nomination?
If so, then a new national poll provides the proof.
(CNN) – Fifteen days after the Boston Marathon bombings, Massachusetts voters head to the polls Tuesday to select Democratic and Republican nominees in a special U.S. Senate election that's been almost completely overshadowed by the terror attacks.
Even before the bombings, Massachusetts voters weren't paying that much attention to the contest to fill the remaining year and a half of the term of longtime Democratic Sen. John Kerry, who stepped down earlier this year to become U.S. secretary of state.
(CNN) – They've been going after each other from a distance. Now they get to do it in person.
Monday evening former South Carolina Gov. Mark Sanford and Elizabeth Colbert Busch debate for the first time in their battle for the Palmetto State's vacant congressional seat, in an entertaining race that's grabbed national attention.
(CNN) - One day before the dedication of the President George W. Bush Presidential Center in Dallas, two people considering runs for the White House in 2016 are giving speeches in the same city.
Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton addressed the National Multi Housing Council. The trade association, which represents apartment owners, developers and lenders, told CNN that Clinton would address around 350 people, speaking for about an hour, with a moderated question and answer conversation.
Washington (CNN) - Was George W. Bush's presidency a success or failure?
A new national poll suggests it depends on who's answering the question.
(CNN) - With just under two weeks to go until election day, an entertaining special election to fill a vacant House seat in South Carolina's first congressional district remains just that, entertaining.
