Is the presidency just too big to handle? John Dickerson, co-host of "CBS This Morning" penned a lengthy cover story for The Atlantic on how the magnitude of the office itself might be its own greatest impediment.

With Breanne Deppisch and Joanie Greve. THE BIG IDEA: This will not just be another year of the woman. Primaries across four Southern states on Tuesday showed that 2018 is the year of the minority woman. Four years ago, Democrats nominated just two racial minorities for governor. Both were men: Anthony Brown in Maryland and David Ige in Hawaii. This year, with the same 36 states holding gubernatorial contests, Democrats have already nominated three minority women. And it’s only May. On Tuesday, Georgia Democrats gave former State House Minority Leader Stacey Abrams, 44, a shot to become the first black, female governor in American history. She crushed Stacey Evans, who is white and argued that the way to win is to appeal to the middle — not the left. “We are writing the next chapter of Georgia’s future, where no one is unseen, no one is unheard and no one is uninspired,” Abrams said at her victory rally in Atlanta. In Texas, former Dallas County … [Read more...] about The Daily 202: Primary results prove 2018 will be a breakthrough year for Democratic diversity

THE BIG IDEA: With Breanne Deppisch and Joanie Greve. SAN FRANCISCO — When Mark Zuckerberg is under the klieg lights on Capitol Hill today, he will emphasize Facebook’s endorsement of the Honest Ads Act. “We know some members of Congress are exploring ways to increase transparency around political or issue advertising, and we’re happy to keep working with Congress on that,” the founder and chief executive of the social networking giant plans to say, according to his prepared testimony. Technology companies pride themselves on being insulated from the sorts of burdensome government requirements that apply to most other industries. So why on Earth would Zuckerberg support a new law that would be expensive to comply with and, thus, ostensibly hurt his bottom line? Here are six reasons: 1.
