Via Maria, Obama’s biggest general election liability: His bitter half
On the stump, she warmed up (or rather, berated) supporters by complaining about how her husband is an underdog even after he keeps winning primary and caucus after primary and caucus.

Fausta,
There's an op/ed piece at the NYT today about DNA, RNA, and reverse transcriptase. It's kind of fun to think how these chemicals might have danced around to produce Ms Platypus.
