Column: Biden can't bean Clinton; she can do that herself
WASHINGTON — Maybe Joe Biden can help Hillary Clinton get her groove back. Or, get her groove at all. It’s been sorely missing this cam-paign. Clinton is at her best, or at least does best with voters, when she’s down. See the misty-eyed moment in New Hampshire 2008.

Scott Rall: Having a plan and implementing it are two very different things
So this author weighs 230 pounds. The author wants to weigh 200 pounds. I have a plan. Eat less, exercise more and give up my two favorite things — French fries and Dorito nacho chips. I just simply implement the plan and in a few short months, all is well, and the desired result...
