'Racial animus' towards Holder and Obama?

First, Sen. Rand Paul of Kentucky is firing back at Gov. Rick Perry of Texas, in an escalation of a war of words between two potential 2016 Republican presidential contenders over U.S. foreign policy and the country's role in the bloody outbreak of fighting in Iraq. What do you make of this infighting?

Then, Attorney General Eric Holder says he sees "racial animus" in strident Republican opposition to some Obama administration policies. Some media conservatives say he's playing racial politics.

At 6:30pm ET, Newt Gingrich and guest host Paul Begala host a debate with Tim Phillips and Neera Tanden.

Putting their money where their mouth is

Hillary Clinton said two weeks ago that her family was "dead broke" when they left the White House in 2001. She quickly tried to clean up the comments.

But the clean-up doesn't appear to have been committed to memory.

In an interview with Britain's Guardian published over the weekend, Clinton reignited the debate over her wealth by comparing herself to other wealthy people who Clinton said were "truly well off."

Today, Joe Biden touted his modest finances. He's long joked about his modest financial standing, but on Monday Vice President Joe Biden acknowledged he's come a long way since being listed among the poorest members of Congress.

At 6:30pm ET, S.E. Cupp, Stephanie Cutter, Van Jones, and Newt Gingrich join forces on a special all-hosts edition of Crossfire.

300 military advisers prepared to go in Iraq

Seeking a middle ground between calls for tough military action and none at all, President Barack Obama said Thursday he was sending up to 300 military advisers to Iraq to help the embattled government hold off a lightning advance from the north by Sunni militants.

Obama told White House reporters the goal was to prevent a civil war in Iraq that could destabilize the region, and also prevent creation of a terrorist safe haven in northern Iraq and neighboring Syria from which U.S. enemies could plan and launch attacks against American interests. Full story

Perry sticks by alcoholism and homosexuality comparison

Texas Gov. Rick Perry stood by his recent comments comparing homosexuality to alcoholism.

Appearing on CNN's "Crossfire" on Wednesday, Perry was asked by co-host Stephanie Cutter whether he believes homosexuality is a disease.

"I think my position has been fairly clear on that for a substantial period of time," Perry said, pivoting quickly to the economy as a more pressing issue facing the United States. Full story

Is Iran our best option?

The United States could end up cooperating with Iran to stop militant gains in Iraq, Secretary of State John Kerry suggested Monday in an interview with Yahoo!News.

But a Pentagon spokesman denied Monday that any military coordination with Iran is in the cards.

In his interview with Yahoo!News, Kerry didn't say that cooperation with Iran is under active discussion inside the administration.

"Let's see what Iran might or might not be willing to do before we start making any pronouncements," he said. Full story

At 6:30pm ET, S.E. Cupp and Van Jones are joined by Vikram Singh of Center for American Progress and Danielle Pletka of AEI, for a debate.
