No end in sight: It’s getting ugly folks and it was ugly before. The more-than-three-week-old conflict between Israel and Hamas in Gaza has left more than 1,300 people dead and even more wounded. Most are civilians. With more than 100 people reportedly killed in yesterday’s fighting, the United Nations and the United States demanded more be done to protect them.

And there are fears that it could spread beyond the region and around the world.

But they’re hanging their hat on his handling of the Affordable Care act, which they feel gives them the best chance of proving their case.
