    The Hill ^ | August 20, 2014 | Bob Cusack, Vivian Hughbanks and Tomas Navia
    (VIDEO-AT-LINK)There are 65 prominent people who might run for president in 2016. The Democratic and Republican fields contrast sharply. Hillary Clinton is the clear front-runner, while there is no front-runner on the Republican side. Twenty-three Democrats have been mentioned as a candidate or are eyeing a bid, according to an analysis by The Hill. The GOP side has 42. Most of the people on this list won’t run, and some have adamantly claimed that they’re not interested. But many politicians have changed their minds on seeking the White House. Before mounting his 2008 bid, then-Sen. Barack Obama (D-Ill.) said he...

    On the day that Rep. Cathy McMorris Rodgers (R-WA) told a local newspaper that she believed amnesty legislation could be brought to the floor by August, she met with Satya Nadella, the new CEO of Microsoft. “I believe there is a path that we get a bill on the floor by August,” House GOP Conference Chair McMorris Rodgers said last Friday. “We’re going to have to push that this is a legal status, not amnesty." That same day, she tweeted a photo of herself with Nadella from her verified @cathymcmorris Twitter account.

    With the news this week that more than 600,000 Washington residents have acquired new health care plans through the state exchange, U.S. Rep. Cathy McMorris Rodgers said it’s unlikely the Affordable Care Act will be repealed. “We need to look at reforming the exchanges,” the Eastern Washington Republican said Thursday. The five-term congresswoman and chair of the House Republican Conference kicked off her re-election campaign this week with visits to Walla Walla, Colville and Spokane. She faces Democratic challenger Joe Pakootas. McMorris Rodgers has been part of the Republican leadership in the House that has voted multiple times to repeal...

    President Obama’s State of the Union speech closed with a truly uniting moment when he honored the sacrifice of Army Ranger Cory Remsburg. Sergeant Remsburg bravely fought for our country through 10 tours of duty. Too bad House Minority Whip Steny Hoyer (D-Md.) ensured that division was the name of the game only hours later. Rep. Hoyer attacked Rep. Cathy McMorris Rodgers (R-Wash.), who delivered the GOP response to the State of the Union. Ignoring her stature in the GOP and her intellectual acumen, he instead reduced her solely to her gender, calling her a “transparent” choice to give the...

    Washington’s Gov. Jay Inslee has warned Congress, in a blunt letter, to recognize the “real world” and not to impose any more “needless, self-inflicted” wounds on the American economy. The governor’s letter came on a morning when the Republican-run U.S. House of Representatives voted — almost entirely on party lines — to fund the federal government until Dec. 15, but only if implementation of the Affordable Care Act (aka. “Obamacare”) is halted. “You should not allow the peoples’ health care to be held hostage,” Inslee wrote to Congress’ leaders. “It is troubling that some in Congress would stop government from...

    WASHINGTON, DC – House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH), Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-VA), Majority Whip Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) and Conference Chair Cathy McMorris Rodgers (R-WA) today issued the following joint statement. “Under the Constitution, the responsibility to declare war lies with Congress. We are glad the president is seeking authorization for any military action in Syria in response to serious, substantive questions being raised. In consultation with the president, we expect the House to consider a measure the week of September 9th. This provides the president time to make his case to Congress and the American people.”

    Responding to veepstakes rumors, Washington Rep. Cathy McMorris Rodgers, vice chair of the House Republican Conference and a rising star on Capitol Hill, says she's open to being Mitt Romney's running mate and encourages him to tap a woman for the job. From National Review's Robert Costa: In an interview with National Review Online, the four-term Republican acknowledged that she's open to the idea, but took care to note that she is not "seeking" the nod. Romney, she says, should simply pick a conservative running mate—and if it's a woman, all the better. "Republican women bring an important voice to...
