American Royalty

By Jamie Gray

If the wall-to-wall media coverage of the birth of Prince George Alexander Louis of Cambridge proves anything, it is the American people’s unending fascination with royalty. On this side of the pond, no family has come closer to attaining regal status in the eyes of the public than the Kennedys.

For those interested in an afternoon of immersion in the Kennedy mystique, Washington’s Newseum has put together an exhibit that captures the highs and lows of John F Kennedy’s public and private life, his presidency and his untimely death in Dallas.

McCain calls for review of 'stand your ground' laws

Sen. John McCain, who lost in 2008 to the first African-American elected to the White House, talks to Candy about the hope for a post-racial era. McCain said President Barack Obama's speech about race relations was "very impressive" and agreed that "stand your ground" laws should be re-examined, including those in his own state of Arizona.

"The 'stand your ground' law may be something that may needs to be reviewed by the Florida legislature or any other legislature that has passed such legislation," McCain said on CNN's "State of the Union."
