NEW YORK (AP) — In the 1970s, Bruce Jenner was a symbol of American masculinity as an Olympic champion. Nearly 40 years later, in an extraordinary television interview, Jenner told the world that he identifies as a woman and has felt gender confusion since he was a little boy growing up in the New York suburbs.
The leader of the Lib Dems ruled out joining a government that relied on support from Scotland's nationalists, raising a potential obstacle to a coalition deal with the Labour Party after a national election on May 7. Nick Clegg, deputy prime minister who may again be kingmaker after a knife-edge election, also said he would prefer to line up with the party that wins most parliamentary seats, another potential hindrance to a deal with Labour. The centrist Lib Dems have been the junior partner in a coalition with the Conservatives since 2010, disappointing many of their voters by working with a right-leaning party. They are forecast to lose around half of their seats, meaning they could struggle to form a coalition government with Labour.
