HUFFPOST HILL - Ben Carson Looking Forward To Spending More Time With Hands

The Huffington Post logo The Huffington Post 2/03/2016 Eliot Nelson

We’re not saying that Bernie Sanders’ campaign is kaput, but Sanders' people might want to reach out to some PUMAs for grief counseling tips. The famously low-energy Ben Carson dropped out of the presidential race, telling his supporters, “..................hello.” And with only four Republican candidates left, the participants in tomorrow night's debate will be advised to limit their suplex slams to three at the very most. This is HUFFPOST HILL for Wednesday, March 2nd, 2016:

Hello, friend: Mitt Romney will deliver an anti-Trump speech in Utah tomorrow.SUPREME COURT DOES ABORTION - Cristian Farias and Laura Bassett: "The Supreme Court on Wednesday heard 85 minutes of oral arguments in a major abortion rights case that could forever define whether Roe v. Wade is good law, or merely dead letter without practical effect. At the heart of the hearing was the court's own 'undue burden' standard, a constitutional test developed in 1992 to measure whether abortion regulations place substantial obstacles on women seeking the procedure. Without the vote of Justice Antonin Scalia, who died last month, the decision for Whole Woman's Health v. Hellerstedt could be split 4 to 4. Should this happen, a Texas law called HB 2 will continue curtailing access to legal abortions for women in the state and a national precedent on reproductive rights won't be set. HB 2 requires abortion clinics in the state to undergo costly upgrades so they resemble mini-hospitals, and mandates that doctors working in the clinics obtain admitting privileges at nearby hospitals."

TRUMP THREATENS PAUL RYAN - Cleary Trump is threatened by Ryan's youth, vigor and generous number of active hair follicles. "Fresh off a string of resounding victories in Republican primary elections on Tuesday, Donald Trump had menacing words for House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wis.). Ryan earlier in the day condemned Trump for equivocating on whether he disavows support from the white supremacists who happen to love his campaign. 'Paul Ryan, I'm sure I'm going to get along great with him,' Trump said. 'And if I don't, he's going to have to pay a big price. Okay?' Trump did not elaborate on why or how Ryan would pay a big price if the two can't get along. Trump uttered the vague threat in response to a reporter asking how he'd get along with Congress while its GOP leaders are condemning his campaign." [HuffPost]
BECAUSE YOU'VE READ THIS FAR - Here's a dog and crow.
DELANEY DOWNER - Tom Vilsack is not impressed by Maine Gov. Paul LePage. Under the Republican governor, food stamp enrollment has dropped sharply among adults who don't have jobs or children, and Vilsack, secretary of the U.S. Department of Agriculture, thinks LePage has simply kicked people off benefits without trying to help them. "I think he's looking for a shortcut, he's looking for a way of making it easy on the state," Vilsack told The Huffington Post. "I'm happy when we reduce the rolls theright way: I'm happy when someone gets a job." Though food stamps are out of the national spotlight -- there's no present-day Newt Gingrich lambasting President Barack Obama as "The Food Stamp President" -- policy battles around food assistance have been raging across the country. States are in the process of ending Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program benefits for a million people, with conservative think tanks hailing the caseload decline in places like Maine and Kansas."
