Bill Clinton and Oprah Winfrey, both of whom rose from humble beginnings to become two of the world's most powerful and visionary leaders, were honored Wednesday by President Obama with the nation's highest civilian award: the Presidential Medal of Freedom.
The honors were bestowed on a day during which Obama honored the legacy of John F. Kennedy, who created the award, by laying a wreath at the assassinated president's gravesite as a nation remembers that terrible day in Dallas a half-century ago Friday.
The day of tributes began at the White House, where Obama awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom to 16 living and deceased Americans for their contributions in fields ranging from sports and entertainment to science and public service.

November 18 is National Married to A Scorpio Support Day. Scorpios are wonderful, caring people, but there's also a reason the adjective "intense" is frequently applied to them, and it's probably the same reason that there's a national day of support for the people who choose to marry them.

Bill and Hillary Clinton have very strong powers of persuasion. Just ask their daughter, Chelsea – she's feeling the pressure from both of them to have a baby.
The 33-year-old – who recently admitted that she'd like to become a mom in the next year – tells Rachael Ray on Friday's episode of her show that the former president and secretary of state are using strong-arm tactics on her.
"There is completely unapologetic pressure. In private and in public," she admits. "If one of my parents were sitting here, they would tell you without blinking an eye that it would make them the happiest thing on earth if I were to make them grandparents, and they would say it so effusively, and I would feel a bit of pressure."

There's a job Hillary Clinton wants so badly that she thinks about it every day. And it's not the one you're probably thinking of – the former Secretary of State can't wait to be a grandmother.
"She asks us about it every single day," her daughter, Chelsea, reveals in a new interview with Glamour.
While her rumored run for president will have to wait till 2016, Hillary may get to be a grandma as soon as next year.

No, you are not dreaming.
Decidedly fulfilling the wishes of countless I Dream of Jeannie fans, Barbara Eden dusted off her genie garb for Saturday's Life Ball charity event in Vienna.
It's been more than 40 years since she hung up her then-controversial crop top and harem pants when the sitcom wrapped in 1970 after five seasons. But on Saturday, the actress, 78, even revisited that iconic braided 'do – to the delight of a few very special fans.

Even the busiest couples set aside time to veg out.
Chelsea Clinton says when she and her investment banker husband Marc Mezvinsky are both in town, they make every Sunday a movie date.
Making a point to sit in the back row, Clinton, 33, and her other half, "watch artsy, thought-provoking movies or documentaries, always on things we know nothing about, because we like to learn things together," the former first daughter tells Parade in its latest issue. "Or we go to blockbuster action movies. We have seen every awesomely bad and awesomely fantastic big action movie that's come out in the last eight years."

Chelsea Clinton and husband Marc Mezvinsky may be headed downtown, but they are moving on up – to a new $10.5 million condo across the street from New York City's Madison Square Park, the New York Post reports.
Clinton, 33, and Mezvinsky, 35, who married in July 2010, found the new love nest while on a walk in the neighborhood, where they already live. (The park is located in the low 20s, just east of Fifth Avenue and is not to be confused with Madison Square Garden.)
The posh pad boasts four bedrooms, 6½ bathrooms, a home office, media room and a family room that overlooks the park, according to the Post. The five-story building features an apartment on each floor with a keypad elevator.
