To ap­peal to the work­ing class, can­did­ates in the next pres­id­en­tial elec­tion will have to prove they can re­late to voters. Hil­lary Clin­ton has already at­temp­ted to dis­pel the no­tion that she’s wealthy. But who will win when late-night host Jon Stew­art pits Clin­ton against Joe Biden in a “Poor-Off”? And why ex­actly do politi­cians feel like Amer­ica needs a “hobo” for pres­id­ent? 

Plus: Chris Christie plays ball at Yan­kee Sta­di­um, and the Food and Drug Ad­min­is­tra­tion lays down new ground rules for how phar­ma­ceut­ic­al com­pan­ies can use Twit­ter.
