8/25/15 Podcast Shushannah Walshe

On Monday, Jeb Bush was in the border town of McAllen, TX, and yes, that term “anchor babies” came up again. Meanwhile, the Draft Biden movement is looking to explain their strategy, amidst a Wall Street Journal report that Biden is leaning towards making a run of it. Scott Walker thinks President Obama should disinvite the Chinese president before his visit planned for September, and Rick Perry’s Iowa campaign manager quits, which one could reasonably assess as never being a good sign. Shushannah discusses the highlights from the campaign trail.

The Dow Jones industrial average suffered its second 500-plus point drop in as many days yesterday and the selloff knocked the broader Standard & Poor’s 500-stock index into official correction mode for the first time since 2011. The Dow’s closing point loss of 586.53 points, or 3.56%, to 15,873.22, was its 8th worse one-day point loss in history and worst daily point decline since Aug 8, 2011. So what are we looking at today? Perhaps overseas markets will provide a hint.

It happened yet again on Sunday, this time at Wrigley Field, as a fan hit by a foul ball had to be taken from the stadium in a stretcher. After a seemingly stark increase in such incidents a ballparks, perhaps as more and more fans are distracted by smartphones, Major League baseball players are calling for enhanced safety measures to protect those in the stands. In July, a class-action lawsuit was filed in federal court in San Francisco seeking to have the MLB install protective netting down the baselines. That lawsuit came after a woman struck by a piece of a broken bat during a game at Fenway Park suffered life-threatening injuries.
