FILE - In this June 12, 2104, file photo, first lady Michelle Obama stands with Sam Kass, White House Senior Policy Adviser for Nutrition Policy, before they make salads from vegetables harvested from the White House garden with area students in the State Dining Room of the White House in Washington. President Barack Obama’s personal chef is leaving after nearly six years in which, unlike any assistant White House chef before him, he cooked up policy alongside his meals. Kass held the title of senior policy adviser for nutrition policy, which gave him a seat at the table to help administration officials hash out everything from an updated “Nutrition Facts” label for processed foods to new government standards to cut the amount of fat, calories and sodium in federally subsidized school meals. (AP Photo/Charles Dharapak, File)WASHINGTON (AP) — For six years, Sam Kass cooked up policy as well as meals for President Barack Obama and his family. He was not only their personal chef but also senior adviser for nutrition policy, giving him a seat at the table where administration officials hashed out everything from updated food labels to new requirements for healthier school lunches.

FILE - This Sept. 8, 2014, file photo shows former Presidents Bill Clinton, left, and George W.

The possibility of a Bush-Clinton matchup in 2016 is increasingly plausible. After months of hints and speculation, former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush last week said he's actively exploring a bid for the Republican nomination. And while Hillary Rodham Clinton hasn't revealed her intentions, she's seen as the odds-on favorite for the Democratic nomination. (AP Photo/Jacquelyn Martin, File)WASHINGTON (AP) — Again? Really?
