    American voters have taken many zigs and zags over the years when choosing their country's chief executive. But one of the amazing consistencies is: They prefer chief executives in the executive office. Five of the last six presidents have been executives -- four governors and one sitting vice president. The only exception is the current incumbent, Barack Obama, who as his bipartisan critics tried to point out in 2007-08, had never even run a candy store, let alone a country.

    WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The CIA (news - web sites) has decided that about one-third of a U.S. Senate report criticizing prewar intelligence on Iraq (news - web sites) contains secret information that should not be released to the public, intelligence sources said on Tuesday. After reviewing the roughly 400 pages for classified data, the intelligence agency returned the report to the Senate Intelligence Committee with brackets around 30 percent to 40 percent of the contents to signal the information was secret, intelligence sources said. The report examines the intelligence on Iraq before the U.S.-led invasion last year, including estimates that...
