Not sure when Google Maps will be updating, but the White House announced that Mount McKinley’s name will be changed to Denali, a major symbolic gesture to Alaska Natives who have been informally calling it that for years. President Obama heads to Alaska Monday and will make the announcement then, and talk about climate change. Unfortunately, President William McKinley is the loser in this. The 25th American president was assassinated 6 months into his 2nd term, and the Ohio native had the mountain named after him. Not any more.

It was that long ago when things looked pretty assured for Hillary Clinton. Folks talked about her ride to the White House would look more like a coronation, with no serious competition to worry about, not only on her side of the aisle, but come the general election as well. Boy, that’s changed. In fact, she’s having trouble getting anyone excited about her campaign. Bernie Sanders is within 7 points in Iowa. Biden is getting attention. Are Democrats turning away from Clinton, and asking the party to find them someone else? And there’s Donald Trump, who didn’t appear on any Sunday talk shows this past weekend. But he was still who everybody talked about.

U.S. District Court Judge Richard Berman, who wanted the NFL and Tom Brady to reach an out of court settlement before the regular season starts, sees that it doesn’t look in the cards and has ordered both Commissioner Roger Goodell and Brady to his courtroom. Since both sides were hoping that things would be decided one way or the other by September 4, the question is how Judge Berman will use the occasion. Will he plead with both sides to work something out, or will be pepper both the main figures with sharp questions, revealing details that to this point have not surfaced.

The Republican side of things, 2016 presidential-wise, has been pretty interesting for quite a while. To this point, the GOP has stolen the show. But there are signs that the Dems may start to attract more attention soon enough. The simmering Clinton email scandal, the enthusiasm that has greeted the Bernie Sanders campaign, and now the contemplations of VP Biden, have together brought speculation that the Clinton campaign is indeed vulnerable. And Clinton, trying to get some footing back, is saying things like several GOP candidates have the views of terrorists when it comes to women’s issues. Rick discusses what resonates with him as key aspects of where the race for president stands at this time.
