Next VP?

Hillary Clinton's running mate, Tim Kaine, sat down with "CBS This Morning" co-host Norah O'Donnell for a wide-ranging interview. Among other topics: the controversy surrounding the $400 million U.S. payment to Iran and whether a Hillary Clinton White House would essentially be an Obama third term.

Overlapping battlegrounds

Almost all of this year's highest-profile Senate races are in key presidential swing states, which has upsides and downsides for the Senate candidates.

Unintended consequence

Hundreds of potential recruits have applied to join the Dallas police force since last month's ambush that took the lives of five officers and Chief David Brown's subsequent call to action.

Full disclosure

A recent "CBS This Morning" undercover investigation found used car dealers selling vehicles with unrepaired safety defects without telling customers about the callbacks. After seeing our story, one dealer told us he does things differently, and called for a law protecting consumers against such sales. Then he went even further after we posed a pointed question to him.

Strike the "ban"?

The "ban the box" movement aims to help job seekers with prior arrests or convictions by preventing employers from asking about criminal histories until later in the hiring process. The idea is to give all Americans a fair shot at landing a job interview, regardless of any mistakes they might have made -- and paid for -- in the past. But are such policies doing more harm than good?

Surprising factor

Research shows the color of new vehicles can have a significant effect on their resale value. We look at which color cars have the slowest rates of depreciation -- and the answer might surprise you.


Maggie Gyllenhaal says she was so moved by Hillary Clinton's DNC speech, she cried at times while watching it. "A lot of it had to do with the fact that she's a smart, capable, powerful woman. And on the main stage, she took that and expressed it so beautifully," the actress explained in a CBS News interview, adding that she's "full-on" in her support of Clinton. What's more, Gyllenhaal says she "absolutely" believes Donald Trump is a racist.

Let them begin

The road to Rio's been rocky, but Brazil is set to get on with the Summer Olympics. The world will be watching as the Opening Ceremony plays out, and its Oscar-nominated director says the show will cost a fraction of those put on in London and Beijing.
