The Pearls

We're close to the end of the first hundred days of the Trump presidency, and it's becoming clear that President Trump has accomplished some, but certainly not all of the items on his Contract with the American Voter. While the 100 day marker is relatively artificial, it has become a flashpoint in journalism and analysis, and we think there's some merit to starting strong. 

The French voted over the weekend, with moderate Emmanuel Macron and nationalist Marine Le Pen emerging as the top two candidates. They'll face off in June. Le Pen is widely seen as an extremist, and most French politicians are quickly lining up to support Macron

Congress has until April 28 to pass a continuing resolution for funding the government. The Trump administration has made funding contentious by taking a hard line on its priorities. The administration is sharply focused on funding a border wall and increasing military spending. 

Sarah extended her compliment for the other party this week to Representative Jamie Comer (and then added kudos for Joni Ernst following remarks critical of President Trump for spending so much time away from the White House). Beth complimented Dick Durbin for his nuanced take on Democratic candidates' positions on reproductive rights. 

The Suit

We discussed the conversation emerging from Shattered: Inside Hillary Clinton's Doomed Campaign by Jonathan Allen and Amie Parnes. We think the focus should be less on campaign infighting and drama and more on what we can learn going forward

The Heels

Beth shares a little about her sister, Kimberly's, wedding, and we talk more about Sarah's house hunt.
