Deadly explosions rocked the Egyptian capital city of Cairo early this morning, killing at least four people and wounding nearly 70. The violence comes on the eve of the third anniversary of the country’s 2011 uprising, that ousted longtime ruler Hosni Murbarak from power and marked the beginning of the Arab Spring there.
Hillary Clinton has not announced whether she'll run for president in 2016, but her constant candidacy makes her an opposition target, reports David Lightman. Clinton is also featured in this Sunday's New York Times Magazine, which includes a planetary cover illustration of "her political universe."
House Speaker John Boehner says there’s no way he’s heading to the Oval Office. The Ohio Republican told comedian Jay Leno on "The Tonight Show" Thursday, "I like to play golf, I like to cut my own grass, I do drink red wine, I smoke cigarettes, and I'm not giving that up to be President of the United States."
Mitt Romney says he would feel safe sending his family to the Olympics in Sochi. "The Russians have done everything humanly possible to protect the games," he tells "The Today Show."
And finally, pop sensation Justin Bieber is free on bail this morning after being nailed by Florida law enforcement. The 19-year-old was charged with drunken driving, resisting arrest, and driving without a valid license after police saw him drag racing through a residential neighborhood early Thursday.
