Will the president recognize that his economic policies have failed to create the millions of jobs that he promised and have, instead, reduced the labor force participation rate to its lowest level in decades?

Will the president call on Congress to form a Joint Select Committee to investigate the terrorist attack in Benghazi?

Will the president finally recognize that it was a mistake to ram through Obamacare on a party-line vote and that it is — right now — hurting millions of Americans?


The prospect of a “President” Hillary Rodham Clinton in 2016 inspires happy talk from her fans who anticipate that former President Bill Clinton is also part of the package. Alas. Some say this is not so happy. One lawmaker critical of the Bill/Hill combo has broached the past “predatory behavior” of Mr. Clinton, who would become the nation’s very first “first husband” should his spouse win the race.

Sen. Rand Paul has not forgotten Mr. Clinton’s dalliance with White House intern Monica Lewinsky 16 years ago that ultimately led to the president’s impeachment. The Kentucky Republican hopes voters will also recall those events, particularly in light of Democratic claims of a GOP “war on women,” among other things.

“One of the workplace laws and rules that I think are good is that bosses shouldn’t prey on young interns in their office. And I think really the media seems to have given President Clinton a pass on this,” Mr. Paul told NBC on Sunday. “He took advantage of a girl that was 20 years old and an intern in his office. There is no excuse for that, and it is predatory behavior.”

The lawmaker then chided the Democrats.

“They have the gall to stand up and say Republicans are having a war on women?” Mr. Paul demanded. “So yes, I think it’s a factor. Now, it’s not Hillary’s fault. But it is a factor in judging Bill Clinton in history. This is in regard to the Clintons: sometimes it’s hard to separate one from the other.”


Where are the most “Bible-minded” cities in America? The nation’s capital is not among them according to some telling findings from a research project by the American Bible Society and the Barna Group, a nonprofit research organization. The pair have tracked Bible reading habits and opinions of more than 45,000 people in a seven-year study period that ended in August. The question for respondents in 100 cities and metropolitan areas: How often do you read The Bible, and how “accurate” is the good book?

The findings: the most Bible-minded spot in America is Chattanooga, Tenn. — followed by Birmingham, Ala.; Roanoke Va.; Springfield, Mo., and Shreveport, La. The least Bible-minded is Providence, R.I., in 100th place.

Working up from the bottom, the aforementioned city is followed by Albany, N.Y.; Boston; San Francisco and Cedar Rapids, Iowa,

New York City is 89 on the list, and the original “Sin City” — Las Vegas — is 90. And Washington, D. C.? The capital city ranks 80th.
