This week we're dodging distractions to bring you the news
Health care reform didn't make it out of the Senate, the military said it won't be taking action yet on the President's tweets about transgender service members and Congress passed a set of sanctions against Russia despite what President Trump has said about sanctioning Russia. So just how powerful is the president?
And Tuesday is election day in Washington and the mayor's race in Seattle will go down to two. We ask the panel for predictions.
And should you be able to take a "mental health day" from work?
