Sony Pictures has put out a new preview of "The Front Runner," the film about the sex scandal that ended Gary Hart's political career. It has the re-enactment of the scene that changed politics and journalism forever, along with the actors discussing the film.

Here are the Miami Herald reporters confronting Hart (Hugh Jackman) at his townhouse in May 1987 after Donna Rice appeared to have spent the night there. (It's out nationally on Nov. 21.)

"Senator, I want to ask you some questions about the woman at your townhouse."

"Can you tell us how you know her?"

"You can't be serious. No one is staying at my home. There's no need for that."

"I am serious, sir."

Why it matters: It may be hard to believe — now that we've lived through Donald Trump and Bill Clinton's affairs — but a presidential candidate's personal life really used to be considered out of bounds. The agonizing you see among the Miami Herald reporters and editors shows the real dilemma journalism, and the country, faced as the rules of politics changed.

The bottom line: We know more now about our presidents and presidential candidates — but it's also getting harder to find lines that can't be crossed.

Vice President Mike Pence no longer plans to attend the Senate's final confirmation vote for Judge Amy Coney Barrett on Monday, following Senate Democrats' claims that his presence after possible exposure to the coronavirus would be a "violation of common decency," a Pence aide confirmed to CNN and Politico on Monday.

Driving the news: Five of Pence's aides were recently diagnosed with COVID-19, including his chief of staff, who is currently quarantining. Pence has continued his campaign travel despite his possible exposure, which goes against CDC guidelines.

U.S. government bonds could breakout further after yields on the benchmark 10-year Treasury note ticked up to their highest since early June last week.

But, but, but: Strategists say this move is about an improving outlook for economic growth rather than just inflation.
