  1. In some areas, mostly in the form of academia (Duke, UNC), Research institutions, and medical. Raleigh could absorb the effects pretty well in terms of housing. It's got expensive areas like Cary for the executive types, and cheaper areas for average employees (Durham). Plus there is ton of room to expand the city itself.

    Former Clinton advisor: Hillary will run in 2020

    The simple test is can the candidate kick Trump's ass in a debate, not out smart him, but make Trump look small. If they can find someone who can do that and come off as an authentic human, they'll win by chipping at the Trump cult and motivating the base to come out. Beto never hit Cruz directly in the debates despite multiple opportunities, he's authentic but I don't see him as being able to make Trump bleed.

    The Grand KKKeebler Elf has "resigned"

    Has it been determined if this is legal without a Senate Confirmation?

    The Grand KKKeebler Elf has "resigned"

    Given that whether or not this is totally legal is unclear, can we add this is to the list of post Trump executive reforms?

    Whitaker doesn't need to be confirmed, he's the Acting right now. His power might be limited though. The Vacancy Act might not apply since Sessions wrote his letter in a way that he got fired.
