In 2008, Michelle Obama was tentative on the campaign trail, wary of saying anything to jeopardize her husband's historic bid to be America's first black president. Eight years later, the self-assured first lady -- back on the campaign trail -- electrified Democratic Party faithful with a passionate takedown of Donald Trump and what she called his "frightening" attitude towards women. "It has shaken me to my core in a way that I couldn't have predicted," Obama told a rally for Hillary Clinton in New Hampshire. "This is not normal. This is not politics as usual. This is disgraceful. It is intolerable." The speech cemented the transformation of Obama, who turns 53 on Tuesday. Once a reluctant 'mom-in-chief,' the tall, toned Princeton and Harvard graduate -- America's first black first lady -- has evolved, becoming a singular voice for women and a political dynamo.

They have privately angered business executives, who say business policy shouldn't be set by a president-elect in 140 characters. Publicly, however, executives have spoken glowingly about Trump’s approach to the business community, given they have no other choice. Boeing CEO Dennis Muilenburg, whose company has been the target of Trump’s tweets for the price tag of its Air Force One contract, visited Trump Tower again on Tuesday and said the president-elect is doing a “great job with engaging business.” Trump seems to enjoy the spectacle of it all, and has so far gotten commitments from a number of companies to keep jobs in the United States - and from other companies to enter into negotiations on the price of jets. He's using the bully pulpit pretty damn well if you ask me, said Vincent Pitta, a labor lawyer in New York who is friends with Trump and has met with him twice since he won office.

Amid speculation that Donald Trump's pick for Labor Secretary, Andrew Puzder, may have lost his appetite for the job, the fast food CEO's personal financial disclosure documents are being kept from public view. When -- and if -- the Office of Government Ethics releases these documents, we'll get a clearer picture of the grand fortune Puzder has built up in his 16 years as the chief of CKE, the company behind the Hardee's and Carl's Jr. chains. But even the incomplete data CKE has filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission make clear that Puzder has received massive rewards for exploiting his low-wage labor force. In just the four-year period of 2009-2012, SEC filings show Puzder made $27.5 million in total compensation, with a peak haul in 2011 of $10.1 million. (After 2012, CKE no longer had to report executive compensation data because it had become privately held.

Escalation Watch Cross-posted with TomDispatch.com Within months of taking office, President Donald Trump is likely to face one or more major international crises, possibly entailing a risk of nuclear escalation. Not since the end of the Cold War has a new chief executive been confronted with as many potential flashpoints involving such a risk of explosive conflict. This proliferation of crises has been brewing for some time, but the situation appears especially ominous now given Trumps pledge to bring American military force swiftly to bear on any threats of foreign transgression. With so much at risk, its none too soon to go on a permanent escalation watch, monitoring the major global hotspots for any sign of imminent flare-ups, hoping that early warnings (and the outcry that goes with them) might help avert catastrophe. Looking at the world today, four areas appear to pose an especially high risk of sudden crisis and conflict: North Korea, the South China Sea, the Baltic Sea region, and the Middle East.
