Philadelphia (CNN) – It's a large district in and around Philadelphia. It's not a swing seat; it's a safe Democratic stronghold-not a nailbiter. But in this midterm election, the 13th Congressional District race has attracted some national attention and some rock star fundraisers: Bill and Hillary Clinton.
Why such attention and star power? Because the candidate is Marjorie Margolies: related by marriage to the Clintons and tied to the former President by history.
(CNN) – Lynne Cheney has spent decades studying and admiring the nation's fourth president, James Madison.
Her new book, "James Madison: A Life Reconsidered" is a labor of political admiration that began five years ago and culminated in a historical journey in which Madison, the father of the Constitution, also becomes a prophet of productive conservatism.
She considers his impact generally under-appreciated but incredibly profound.
Washington (CNN) – Two families, two political parties - one family business.
It's hard to understate the depth of the Bush-Clinton impact on American politics. Think of it this way: For 32 years, there was either a Bush or a Clinton in the White House or the Cabinet. And in 2016, the families could be competing again - in a Jeb Bush vs. Hillary Clinton face off.
