The roots and legacy of Bill Clinton's 'abandonment' of organized labor

After the labor movement helped elect David Pryor, Dale Bumpers and Bill Clinton early in their careers, the three politicians took aggressive anti-union positions, Michael Pierce, an associate professor of history at the University of Arkansas, writes in a recent piece on The Labor and Working-Class History Association's Labor Online website. Pierce sees a connection between Clinton's early work against 1978's Labor Reform Bill (for the Pryor campaign), his later pro-business policies as governor and president and Hillary Clinton's struggles with working class whites.

Every movie Bill Clinton watched in the White House

I'm not sure how revelatory this list is or even how reflective of President Clinton's taste in movies, but Gizmodo has obtained from the Clinton Presidential Library and the National Archives, the complete list of movies Clinton watched from 1993 to 2001. The source material was highly redacted and only included a handful of movies in 1996 and 1997, though, so it might not actually be complete. Go crazy, conspiracy theorists!
