Shorter Obama

Shorter Obama

In his big speech before the Democratic National Convention in Charlotte, N.C., on Thursday, President Barack Obama framed the election as a choice between two distinctly different visions for America's future.

Obama's speech ran thousands of words, but an earlier draft was much more to the point: It simply read, "What Clinton said."

Fly Away Gulag: Russian President Vladimir Putin on Wednesday flew on a motorized hang glider to lead a flock of young Siberian white cranes on their southern migration.

When three of the birds declined to follow Putin, he ordered them arrested, jailed and sentenced to two years at hard labor.

We're in the money: Stoked by a new plan to ease Europe's financial crisis, the Dow Jones Industrials on Thursday hit its highest level since December 2007, the dawn of the Great Recession.

Americans haven't been this excited about something out of Europe since Ikea announced it was building a new store in Overland Park, Kan.
