Midday Open Thread
  • New York Times: "The United States and five other world powers announced a landmark accord Sunday morning that would temporarily freeze Iran’s nuclear program and lay the foundation for a more sweeping agreement."
  • Obama/Kerry = best policy team since Bush I/Jim Baker. Congress is finally becoming embarrassed by Netanyahu’s efforts to dictate US policy.
    @zbig
    Strong progress from @WilliamJHague and @JohnKerry on #Iran. Nowhere near the end - but a sign the pressure is working.

  • Maybe someone should as him to come clean on whether he has the bomb. How destabilizing is it that everyone in the region is restricted and he is not even asked by the West to account? Just asking?
    What was achieved last night in Geneva is not an historic agreement; it is an historic mistake

  • Bill Maher New Rules - Kennedy Vs Reagan
  • This is a touching story. Whatever happened to the American dream? 
  • From GOP War on Women to women waging war on Texas GOP

    Texas Senator Leticia Van De Putte announced that she will be running for Texas Lieutenant Governor. A few weeks ago Wendy Davis announced she was running for Governor. At the top of the ticket in Texas will be two strong women.

  • Reality is setting in to governors that must govern..

    At the annual meeting here of the nation’s Republican governors, the ones who are eyeing presidential runs in 2016 say they oppose the health care law. But there is sharp disagreement among those who have helped carry out the law and those who remain entrenched in their opposition.

    This is why we must have progressive women entering every sphere of our political ethos. While some get perturbed when the War on Women is called out, stories like this always provide perspective. If a penis carried a child, no man would allow any system that dictated the limits of his freedom.

    The relationship did not last long — but she did become pregnant. And now the skier, 36, and Ms. McKenna, 27, a former Marine and firefighter who is attending Columbia University with G.I. Bill support, are locked in a cross-country custody fight that has become not only tabloid fodder but also a closely watched legal battle over the rights of pregnant women to travel and make life choices.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
