Daniel Gross, writing in New York Magazine, can't understand the Republican outrage over Ben Bernanke's latest tinkering with the economic markets. After all, Gross notes, Bernanke is himself a Republican! Oh, well then, we Republicans were not aware of that. Of course we'll all sit quietly now! As Sarah Palin said about John McCain: "You don't have to fall in love. You just have to fall in line." Oh wait, that wasn't a Republican leader. That was Hilary Clinton explaining to Democrats that you just pull the (D) lever for John Kerry in 2004 and keep your mouth shut.

In March, a South Korean warship was torpedoed, killing 46 sailors and sinking the vessel. Recent evidence strongly implicates North Korea as the most likely power responsible for the attack, though Pyonyang denies any involvement. Now, South Korean President Lee Myung-bak has said his country will boost its defense, sever all trade with North Korea and deny North Korean merchant ships access to their sea lanes. The U.S. has backed the South Korean stance.
But this is not the first time North Korea has taken a hostile maritime policy, nor is this the most explicit act of aggression by Pyongyang.

In a flashback to the '90s, when then–First Lady Hilary Clinton went out and stumped for health care reform, new First Lady Michelle Obama starts hawking health care today. She'll pitch herself as a soccer mom who gets what families need from their insurance plans. And, though the tactic is different, it's hard not to hear echoes of Hillarycare. We speak to former Clinton Press Secretary Dee Dee Myers and Nia-Malika Henderson, White House reporter for Politico, to ask: How do first ladies fit into health care reform, and are there lessons to be learned from the Clinton White House?
