It remains to be seen whether voters will re-elect President Obama this fall but Iowa Democrats already have Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton in mind as his successor in 2016, according to a poll released Monday.
President Obama's favorite actor is Paul Newman and his current favorite TV show is "Homeland," a Showtime network program about a Marine returning from time as a POW who a CIA agent suspects might have been turned by al Qaeda.
The Obama administration has proposed including same-sex couples in one of the health care law's new benefits that allows young adult children to stay on their parents' health plans.
New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg repeated his calls Monday for a national discussion of gun laws in the wake of last week's mass shooting in Colorado.
Former Vermont Gov. and Democratic National Committee Chairman Howard Dean offered a characteristically blunt take on the "fiscal cliff" of looming spending cuts coupled with the expiration of the Bush-era tax cuts on Jan. 1: Let it happen.
Colorado Gov. John Hickenlooper said his chief of staff took a group of young people to see "The Dark Knight Rises" movie on Saturday night to make a statement against the shooter who killed a dozen people watching the same movie two days earlier.
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu says his government is certain that the Lebanese terrorist group Hezbollah is behind the bus bombing in Bulgaria last week that left five Israelis dead.
Nearly 200 companies gave $8.6 million to super PACs in June, far more than in any month this year, a Washington Times analysis of new federal records showed. The total includes many repeat givers who have given a total of $18 million, and almost all in June came from 40 companies giving $50,000 or more.
International media magnate Rupert Murdoch is leaving his board posts at companies that own a number of his News Corp.'s best-known newspaper properties, including Britain's The Sun, the London Times and the London Sunday Times, according to a report in the London Telegraph.

The Romney super PAC raised $20 million from 148 people last month – half of which came from former Newt Gingrich supporter Sheldon Adelson, $2 million from profligate giver and homebuilder Bob Perry, and $1 million from a corporation connected to the Koch brothers, according to disclosures filed Friday.
At least $143 million, and likely much more, that President Obama has raised this election cycle can be traced to only 638 wealthy "volunteer fundraisers," data released Friday showed.
President Obama handily outraised Mitt Romney in June campaign fundraising, disclosures showed Friday, and Mr. Obama spent four times as much on advertising. But Mr. Romney doubled his reliance on small donors, a massive feat that brings his percentage equal to that of Mr. Obama.
Linda McMahon, the wrestling magnate seeking the GOP nomination to replace retiring Sen. Joe Lieberman, isn't taking her cues from the Romney campaign when it comes to disclosing personal finances.
President Obama ordered U.S. flags to be flown at half-staff Friday to honor victims of the mass shooting at a movie theater in Aurora, Colo.
