Obama Highlights Climate Change in Alaska and Joe Biden’s 2016 Path to Victory


President Obama became the first sitting president to visit the Arctic Circle this week as part of his trip to Alaska promoting his climate change agenda. Peter Baker of the New York Times calls Obama’s trip his “legacy lap” and something to cross off his bucket list. Meanwhile, Vice President Joe Biden continues to weigh a 2016 run for the top job. Jeanne Cummings of The Wall Street Journal reports on what would make the campaign different than Biden’s two previous campaigns. Plus, The Washington Post’s Karen Tumulty explains the niche John Kasich has filled in the Republican race for president as he runs on his record in government.
