Initially, she admitted it was simple racism, but now she says it's because she can never accept a child "not of my own blood."

Debates as un-reality TV

Karl Rove, a star political strategist, is outraged that Donald Trump, a star real-estate mogul and reality show host, is staging a reality show with real Republican presidential candidates and calling it a debate.
