    House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., repeatedly put the blame for the Veterans Affairs scandal on former President George W. Bush, while arguing that her party has worked hard for veterans in recent years. Pelosi took a shot at Bush while saying that the scandal is a high priority for Obama. "He sees the ramifications of some seeds that were sown a long time ago, when you have two wars over a long period of time and many, many more, millions more veterans," she told reporters during her Thursday press briefing. "And so, I know that he is upset about...

    With Rep. Henry Waxman's retirement announcement, many of House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi's top lieutenants are abandoning ship. Waxman joins his California colleague, Rep. George Miller, and Rep. Jim Moran of Virginia as close Pelosi allies to retire after this Congress. And after last year's 2012 elections, Pelosi's leading in-house strategist Jen Crider left her office, later announcing she was working for Microsoft. Their decisions are as strong a signal as any that veteran House Democrats hold little hope of taking the House in 2014, and they probably are pessimistic about their long-term prospects for a congressional majority. Miller and...

    Secretary of State Hillary Clinton's tour of Malawi had an inauspicious finale on Monday as she and her detail were targeted by a swarm of bees at the airport. Clinton and her detail were headed to board her plane at Kamuzu International Airport in the capital, Lilongwe, when a swarm of bees descended on the farewell gathering. According to press reports, Malawi and American officials scampered for cover while Clinton ran onto the jet for cover.
  • Palin: 'Queen Bee' of GOP 'Mean Girls' Has Message for Times' Dowd (Transcript: Palin & Jenkins)

    JENKINS: You can hear your fans yelling for you. Did you think it was going to get this big, that this movement was going to have the impact that it has had? PALIN: Absolutely. We know the impact is going to be greater come November 3rd because people then will be focused on the 2012 election and the need then for a more aggressive movement to stop what President Obama is doing to this country when it comes to killing jobs with all the policies that he is so engaged in that make absolutely no sense for America. What I'm...

    Remember when all then-House Speaker Newt Gingrich wanted was to use the front steps of Air Force One? That didn't work out, thanks to Bill Clinton's aides - but in retrospect it seems that the taxpayers never had it so good. Now the new speaker, Democrat Nancy Pelosi of San Francisco, is demanding her own personal Pentagon-provided jet. Who's to get the tab? That's right: You. The speaker has decided that she needs a personal shuttle between Washington, D.C., and her home out on the Left Coast. Historically, House speakers flew commercial. Then, after 9/11, Speaker Dennis Hastert cited security...

    Katie Couric is the first female solo anchor in nightly news, but that doesn't mean she's bringing more women along with her. A published report found that her fellow female correspondents at the "CBS Evening News" are getting 40 percent less face time than they did under her predecessor, Bob Schieffer. Since Couric's arrival, stories filed by women have averaged three minutes each night, down from 5.8 minutes under Schieffer, according to television news analyst Andrew Tyndall. In contrast, male correspondents continue to average 10.1 minutes. Tyndall, whose analysis appeared in trade publication Broadcasting & Cable, attributed the decrease in...

    Ethics In Government: Hillary Clinton is on a personal jihad against what she calls the Republican-led "culture of corruption and cronyism" in Washington. Corruption? Cronyism? She's one to talk. It's hard to think of a more unqualified candidate for Girl Scout of Washington. But Hillary, queen of the Arkansas mafia, has appointed herself to that role in this, the next stage of her pre-2008 media makeover. The rehabilitation is complete: Meet St. Hillary, defender of all that is right and decent. Yes, she's almost ready to seize power again ó if, that is, she can get away with the con....
