Hillary Rodham Clinton - imagine if she runs and wins! In America, moms and dads of daughters will throw their arms around their girls' shoulders and say, "OK honey, now that the highest and seemingly most impervious glass ceiling is gone, in terms of your future, the sky's the limit!" Grandpas and grandmas will do the same with their granddaughters. Expect wide approval from American women of any age and enthusiastic response from women worldwide who will welcome the news that the charismatic, eloquent and tireless campaigner for women's welfare, rights and opportunities also is the new leader of the free world.

I know it's disturbingly early to get into this, but here is my out-of-nowhere prediction for the 2016 presidential race: Hillary Clinton vs. Rand Paul. Ms. Clinton is an easy pick. She was on "The Daily Show" with Jon Stewart on Tuesday night looking relaxed, engaged and quick-witted. Mr. Stewart spent most of the time trying to box her into admitting she is running for president. Ms. Clinton made no announcement, of course, but she gave not a single signal that would suggest she will not be a candidate.

From the first days of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict when I saw Ayman Mohyeldin and his NBC News crew under fire from police in Israel, I have been thinking how much we have come to take TV reporters for granted in places like the Middle East. So, here are a few words of praise. I wrote about Mohyeldin and his team holding up their camera and shouting "journalists" in three languages as stun grenades and rubber bullets were fired in their direction on July 2. Al Jazeera America was the first to sense the importance of the story on June 30 when the bodies of three Israeli teens who had been kidnapped were found.

Hillary Clinton's quasi-presidential-campaign-but-actually-book-tour hit "The Daily Show" with Jon Stewart Tuesday night and, as always with the scathing, satirical talk-show heavyweight, the interview did not disappoint. Jon spent a fair amount of time attempting to weasel his way into landing the much-coveted Clinton presidential announcement, and while the former secretary of state remained painstakingly coy on the matter, the host got pretty creative in his interrogative methods.

Atholton High School's Miles Walker recently captured the state's top prize in an American Legion national government instruction program, an accomplishment that for the 16-year-old rising senior was nearly a lifetime in the making. The Columbia resident was an infant when his mother, Lisa Walker Woodyard, first read about the Boys State program in the memoir of President Bill Clinton, who attended as a 16-year-old himself. The regimented instruction program was launched by the American Legion in 1935 to counter the Soviet Union's Young Pioneer camps and according to the American Legion strives to teach civic duty via role playing as state and local politicians.

Nobody brings out the Republican long knives quite like Hillary Clinton does, and this week, Comedy Central's Jon Stewart coined the perfect name for it: "Brainghazi. " It's the merging of the umpteenth investigation of Benghazi with the latest slander to be directed her way, the suggestion by Republican strategist Karl Rove that she's suffered brain damage. Mr. Rove tried to walk back that little smear on Tuesday after a New York Post headline to that effect set the Internet on fire.

Speaking at an event that was part fundraiser, part pep rally for Lt. Gov. Anthony Brown's gubernatorial campaign, former President Bill Clinton on Tuesday defended the way the state handled the troubled roll out of its health insurance exchange -- an issue Brown's critics have attempted to use against him for months. "I admire the fact that when they had problems with the health care website, like the federal government did, they fixed them," Clinton, who endorsed Brown last month, told supporters who gathered at a Potomac conference center.
