Today, Hillary Clinton turned the spotlight on her and other women running in this year's midterm election.

Hillary Clinton tells liberals to focus on women

"We have so many reasons to be hopeful," Clinton said, during a roundtable at the Center for American Progress, a liberal think tank. "Mary Burke gives me hope. Maggie Hassan gives me hope. Martha Coakley and Wendy Davis give me hope."

Davis' new memoir is a portrait of a woman unafraid to go it alone, whether taking on the Texas senate or turning her back on the President of the United States.

Thousands of young undocumented immigrants line up to apply for deportation deferment, but concerns remain

As thousands of young undocumented immigrants across the country begin lining up for the forms that will allow them to take advantage of President Obama's executive order sparing them from deportation for at least two years, questions are already being raised about the long-term effectiveness and permanence of the program.

Should these young people be concerned about officially revealing themselves as illegal immigrants? Will the President's order face future challenges from Congress?
