No couple in America stirs emotions like Bill and Hillary Clinton, so when she showed up at an Iowa political festival acting more and more like a presidential candidate, it caused quite a flap among those who have begun such movements as "Ready For Hillary," and also among those who'd rather see anybody than her become president. But it proved one thing: that even after decades in the spotlight of the political arena, she still commands attention.

WASHINGTON -- We want to move out. We want to own our home. We want to marry. We want to work.

It sure has felt good to have some cooler days lately. After a long, hot summer, it's nice to know the more pleasant breeze of a pre-autumn day. I have heard many people say similar things in the past week or two, and then there's usually also a follow-up comment about how it won't be long until we're complaining about how cold it is or there's snow and ice on the roads. All true.

Hot, hot, hot! We're on the second day of 99 degrees-plus-the-heat-index weather. I'm on my wide front porch on the shady side of the house with a woven Palmetto frond fan in my hand.

One week ago, a group of 25 Camden and Kershaw County leaders, business owners and others visited Rock Hill to see how that city transformed itself from a dying textile town to a sports tourism destination. The group -- including members of Camden City Council, candidates for city council and representatives from the Kershaw County School District -- visited sites such as Manchester Meadows (soccer), Cherry Park (baseball/softball) and Rock Hill Tennis Center. They also visited the new Riverwalk/Rock Hill Outdoor Center, which already sports a velodrome for Olympic-style cycling and, when completed, will have other amenities, including a YMCA.

Republicans are delighted to hear they scored better than Democrats and independents in a new survey of political knowledge. Fine. I'm sure Democrats would be just as boastful if their side scored better. Everybody in politics wants to believe that their side is brilliant and the others are a bunch of nitwits.
