President Obama to lose 'body man' by end of the year
"[Reggie] Love’s exit comes at a time of transition for the administration: several longtime advisers have left over the last year, in keeping with the time-honored tradition that close aides do not abandon the president immediately before an election." - The Washington Post

Poll: Majority of Latinos still support Obama, don't know GOP candidates
“If the presidential election were today, Latino voters would support President Obama over his GOP opponent - whomever that may be - by a wide two-to-one margin, according to a new Univision/Latino Decisions poll.  Still, the poll suggests there's an opening for Republicans to make inroads with Latinos, a voting bloc that's increasing in importance. Latinos are still largely unfamiliar with the Republican candidates - for instance, more than half said they don't know enough about Herman Cain to offer an opinion about him.” - CBSNews.com

Equally shared parenting on 'All-American Muslim' reality show
“A family other than the Duggars awaits the birth of their baby on reality TV in the next weeks. The TLC series All-American Muslim premieres on Sunday night, and it introduces five families from Dearborn, Michigan...The purpose of the series is to explore the lives of people whose religion is relatively new to the U.S., and which brings fear and distrust from many in light of recent world events. The couples highlighted in the series were all born here, but understand that in many ways their traditions separate them from other Americans. But teaching non-Muslims about her blend of Arab and American tradition is not the reason [Nawal Aoude, a 25-year-old mother-to-be] agreed to be followed around by crews for the eight part series. She had another message she wanted to deliver: that Arab American couples can be equal partners, in marriage and in parenting. Her own marriage, she says, is proof. " - The Huffington Post
