Brian Dickerson: The best appointment that Mayor Bing will never make Why in the world would Bing welcome his main rival into his inner circle? And why would Duggan, who seeks to portray himself as the decisive foil to Bing's hand-wringing Hamlet, risk muddying his own brand by association with Bing's? Really, I have no idea. 11/16/2012 - 12:34 am | View Link

President Barack Obama is not ruling out meeting Cuban President Raul Castro at the White House, as his administration works to restore ties to the communist country.
A day after the president announced the beginning of efforts to normalize relations with Cuba for the first time in more than 50 years, White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest said Obama would be willing to host the Cuban leader, comparing it to visits from leaders from other countries with checkered human rights records.
“The president has had the leaders of both Burma and China to the United States, and for that reason, I wouldn’t rule out a visit from President Castro,” Earnest said Thursday.
The two leaders spoke on the phone for nearly an hour on Tuesday evening reviewing the agreement to release American subcontractor Alan Gross and to take steps scale back the longstanding American embargo and travel ban.
President Obama, who introduced himself as “Barack Obama, formerly of Somerville,” called into a Massachusetts radio show on Wednesday to praise his friend, the outgoing Gov. Deval Patrick.
“Governor, this is Barack Obama, formerly of Somerville and I’ve got a few complaints about service in and around the neighborhood,” President Obama said before noting that he had “moved down South since that time.”
Obama lived in the Boston area while attending Harvard Law School, but obviously now calls 1600 Pennsylvania Ave.
In the minutes before a police officer shot 12-year-old Tamir Rice in Cleveland on the Saturday before Thanksgiving, a 911 caller said the boy was scaring people as he sat on a swing and pulled a gun in and out of his waistband. The weapon was "probably fake," but the caller couldn't tell for sure.
The White House is treating the massive hack of Sony Pictures Entertainment as a “serious national security matter” and is currently devising a “proportional response” to the cyberattack, Press Secretary Josh Earnest said Thursday.
Earnest said there have been a number of daily meetings at the White House about the hack, and that there are “a range of options that are under consideration right now” for a response.
Conservative media lashed out at President Barack Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama for recounting personal experiences with racism in an interview with People magazine, accusing the Obamas of playing the victim and even asking if the interview made race relations worse.
Obamas Share Personal Experiences With Racism In People Magazine
People: Even For Obamas, "Encounters With Racial Prejudice Aren't As Far In The Past As One Might Expect." In a December 17 interview with People magazine, the Obamas both recounted personal experiences with racism.
