Thursday Morning Politics

I'm watching Trump and his family at an outdoor town hall meeting on the Today show. His children compliment and balance his energies - impressive with their take on the country's issues. I admire the Trumps and could get used to Melania if Trump wins. I could also see any of his children running for office somewhere down the line.

Over at ABC, Hillary answers voters' questions on Good Morning America, a show that has been in the news this week with the Michael Strahan Incident.

There are two political races - for voters and for delegates. Trump needs about 390 more delegates to clinch the nomination at the magic number 1,237. His chances could be hurt on Tuesday by a loophole in Pennsylvania.

Queen Elizabeth II, the oldest monarch in the world and the longest reigning in British history, turns 90 today. She has been on the throne for 64 years. Thousands gathered outside Windsor to help her celebrate. There's lots in the news. Liz shares the day with a literary royal, Charlotte Bronte, born 200 years ago today, perhaps best known as the author of "Jane Eyre."
