NCAA President Mark Emmert spent 15 minutes documenting the progress that the organization has made under his leadership, from making sure students go to class to fighting corruption.
It is pretty clear that if the GOP wants to win another national election, it will have to broaden its appeal. To do that, it should look to its governors, because politics at the state level tends to be more pragmatic than ideological.
Pennsylvania Gov. Tom Corbett, one of many Republicans to rail against Obamacare, may now join his fellow GOP governors for a different cause: accepting the federal government's terms and jumping aboard the Medicaid money train.
Corbett said the Marcellus Shale Development in the state employs thousands of Pennsylvanians and has reduced energy costs.
