    An email from then-CIA Director David Petraeus is among the 99 pages of emails regarding Benghazi released by the White House Wednesday, May 15, 2013. Petraeus objected to the final talking points that U.N. Ambassador Susan Rice used five days after the deadly assault on a U.S. diplomatic post in Benghazi, Libya. The White House on Wednesday released 99 pages of emails and a single page of hand-written notes made by Petraeus' deputy, Mike Morell, after a meeting at the White House the day before Rice's appearance.

    This photo taken on March 14, 2012 shows Tami Parker, standing left, a regional field director for the Obama campaign, instructing phone bank volunteers at a Obama campaign office in Lakewood, Colo. A handful of nurses and other volunteers took up their cell phones last week to call voters and talk up the health care overhaul. The volunteers were targeting elderly women. Holding up a sheet of talking points about the health law, campaign field director Tami Parker told about a dozen volunteers that the health care law faces a Supreme Court challenge later this month. "We need to talk about how the American Care Act helps women, especially elderly women," Parker said. The talking points ended with an argument in bold: "Some politicians want to take away these new benefits, and put insurance companies back in charge." (AP Photo/Ed Andrieski)

    In this Feb. 7, 2012, photo, Karen Handel speaks during an interview in Atlanta. All of a sudden, abortion, contraception and gay marriage are at the center of American political discourse, with the struggling _ though improving _ economy pushed to the background. Social issues don?t usually dominate the discussion in shaky economies. But they do raise emotions important to factors like voter turnout. Then, as the GOP nomination fight churned with no resolution in sight, the economy began to grow. Unemployment rates dipped. And a cascade of cultural political developments inspired a new set of talking points for the year?s crop of political hopefuls such as supporters of Planned Parenthood, which provides abortion services, helped force the resignation of Susan G. Komen For the Cure executive Handel after the breast cancer research group cut grants to the organization, then reversed course. (AP Photo/John Bazemore)
