    Censure briefly forgotten as House leaders honor Rep. Charles RangelBy Russell Berman - 09/22/11 07:24 PM ET House leaders honored Rep. Charles Rangel (D-N.Y) with an official Capitol portrait Thursday, sweeping aside two years of scandal and a formal rebuke to recognize a man who rose from humble beginnings to become a congressional pioneer. As a packed committee room full of hometown supporters and congressional allies serenaded Rangel with chants of “Charlie, Charlie,” it seemed as though the ethical firestorm that led to a House censure had been briefly forgotten. Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) lauded his “long and highly decorated...

    Former US president Jimmy Carter speaks with DER SPIEGEL about the danger posed to American values by George W. Bush, the difficult situation in the Middle East and Cuba's ailing Fidel Castro. SPIEGEL: Mr. Carter, in your new book you write that only the American people can ensure that the US government returns to the country's old moral principles. Are you suggesting that the current US administration of George W. Bush of acting immorally? Carter: There's no doubt that this administration has made a radical and unpressured departure from the basic policies of all previous administrations including those of both...

    When Steven Spielberg began filming Munich in June 2004, he set the tone for his fictional movie about Israeli agents who hunted down the Palestinian terrorists responsible for the slaughter of Israeli athletes at the 1972 Munich Olympics. Spielberg abruptly stopped filming and closed up shop. Why? Because the 2004 Summer Games were happening in August, and Steven Spielberg didn’t want to upset the terrorists. That’s what Munich is about: not upsetting the terrorists. And rolling over while they attack and kill us. In Steven Spielberg’s world, not going after terrorists brings peace. In the real world, not going after...

    WASHINGTON - The White House nominee to become the senior U.S. diplomat to Latin America has hit a bump on the road to Senate approval.A Democratic senator, Max Baucus of Montana, has put a ''hold'' on the nomination of Roger F. Noriega to serve as assistant secretary of state for the Western Hemisphere.A Baucus spokeswoman said the legislative move blocking further action has nothing to do with Noriega's qualifications. Rather, Baucus is using the ''hold'' on Noriega to pressure Senate Majority Leader Bill Frist to allow an up-or-down vote on the full Senate floor for his proposal to relax U.S....
  • Reno and McBride in Dead Heat! (Reno on the Ropes in Florida!!)

    TALLAHASSEE -- A week ago it looked like a blowout race, but the Democratic primary for governor is looking more like a fight to the finish with Bill McBride and Janet Reno in a statistical dead heat, a South Florida Sun-Sentinel poll shows. In a remarkable turnaround, McBride has closed the gap to a 3-point margin — too close to call — in his underdog challenge to Reno for the Democratic gubernatorial nomination. The poll confirms what McBride campaign officials have been suggesting for days: There has been a rapid swing of undecided Democrats to McBride, providing a momentum that...
