Hillary Rodham Clinton is scheduled to host what might be the single biggest fundraiser for Democratic Lt. Gov. Anthony G. Brown tonight in Potomac. The former secretary of state and potential presidential candidate is headlining Brown's 5 p.m. event at a wooded 2.8-acre estate in the wealthy Washington suburb. Tickets cost $4,000 each - even more for VIP tickets, according to an event invitation. Brown campaign manager Justin Schall said as many as 500 people might attend and the campaign expects to raise more than $1 million - a sum greater than that garnered during a May fundraiser for Brown featuring former President Bill Clinton.

The new fall network TV season begins this week, and one of the most highly touted dramas of the year is one of the biggest disappointments. So big is the failure of “Madam Secretary,” a new CBS drama starring Tea Leoni as Secretary of State Elizabeth Faulkner McCord, that it makes me angry. Usually I like TV shows that rattle my emotional cage, but not this one, which premieres at 8:30 p.m. Sunday. What maddens me about “Madam Secretary” is the lie it's selling about Washington and the people who work there.
