RL.TV 02/19/2016
I was intrigued by the new Clark University Poll of Emerging Adults: Work, Education and Identity which surveyed a thousand 21- to 29-year-olds.

Supreme Court Debate Over Filling Open Seat
New England Cable News 02/16/2016
New Hampshire Sen Jeanne Shaheen joined the chorus of Democratic senators weighing in on Senate hearings to fill the seat left open by the late Justice Scalia. Shaheen thinks it's unfortunate that the death of Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia has become so political so quickly. But Clark University political science professor Mark Miller is not surprised. He said, This is the perfect storm. Whoever has the next nominee will control the court for decades. Miller, a one time Supreme Court judicial fellow, says all parties are doing the calculus for what's good either for their party or for their own job.
