traveling with her mother and daughters, the first Lady was warming received as she met with political and community leaders in South Africa and Botswana. She will return to Washington on Monday morning. You can read more here.


Romney/Bachmann Lead Iowa Poll -
the Des Moines Register poll has Mitt Romney barely beating Michelle Bachmann; 23-22%, with Herman Cane coming in third with 10%. The other five candidates vying for the Republican Party nomination for president did not hit double digits. You can read more on the poll results here.

It is still way early to take polls seriously. However, Romney leading in a state he is not campaigning in and newly announced Michele Bachmann coming in a close second speaks volumes on the lack of credible GOP candidates.

yep, that would be state Supreme Court Justice David Prosser. Seems he did not like the argument put forward by fellow Justice Ann Walsh Bradley. has more here.

If, this story is true, Prosser, who barely won reelection in a contested race, should resign immediately.

the buzz is already starting speculating on whether the Democratic NY Governor will run for president. This follows his personal successful push for approval of same-sex marriage in the state. has more here.
