"They say it's good — that it has turned around. I guess most people just don't feel it." My Dispatch from the finest parking lots of Iowa, where many voters told me they're happy sitting Tuesday's election out.  
Hillary Rodham Clinton had been to town the night before to energize voters, and just that morning another good report on the economy had been released in Washington. But as Jay Johnson emptied cardboard boxes into a trash bin outside Ace Hardware — he's the guy you see about tools — he had little to say about either one.

"Done. Done. Done."
~~ Ann Romney is unambiguous on the prospect of a third presidential run for Mitt (She has bigger things in mind...) 
Let some in the political world obsess over whether Mitt Romney plans to run for president for a third time — Ann Romney has a bigger project in mind.

Democrats said Obama's decision to delay executive action on illegal immigration would "table" the issue for 2014. Not so much.
When the U.S. Senate race in Arkansas heated up this summer, Mark Pryor found himself under attack from his opponent with a nasty — and inaccurate — ad claiming that the Democrat had supported giving Social Security benefits to people who had forged identities to work in the U.S. illegally. In Georgia, Democratic candidate Michelle Nunn has been fending off charges that she is "pro-amnesty."

Is Rand Paul right? Can Republicans sell privacy for cellphones but not women? The road ahead for Republicans contains some contradictions.
Democrats have their problems: a lame-duck president whose popularity has slumped, ; just about zero chance of winning back the House, and a better-than-fair shot at losing the Senate as well. But Republicans were facing multiple sources of tension, in California and nationally, as they met this weekend at the state GOP’s convention in Los Angeles.

Rand Paul's barely-disguised presidential campaign hits California, where at a GOP convention he ignores the party's probably wins in 2014 to focus on the 2016 presidential cycle.
Fewer than 50 days before an election that may give Republicans control of the Senate as well as the House, Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) on Saturday skipped past those contests entirely to focus on one in which he may play a more central role — the 2016 presidential race.

Chris Christie's response to the possibility that he'll be sued over his #Ebola policy and the quarantine of Kaci Wilcox: “Whatever. Get in line. I've been sued lots of times before. Get in line. I'm happy to take it on." via +Cathleen Decker 
The threat of Ebola has resurrected the key question on which pivots New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie ’s political future: Is he a strong leader or a bully?

Bill Clinton outlines the agenda for the next president's first 100 days--
and it's ambitious. Clues to the future of his wife  #HillaryClinton  at  #CGI2014 ?
Hillary Rodham Clinton seems more eager to talk about her soon-to-arrive grandchild than her plans for a potential presidential run, but her husband seemed more than happy to allude to both prospects Monday.
